A few minor scratches won't come out but I have to say it looks pretty good I think.

That's a thin blade. And it's really strong.

griffin, that one i really like! the holes add some detail to the blade. very nice.

Thanks guys! Im trying to do one every 3 to 4 days till I get caught up. I'm now 10 knifes behind. But that's a good problem to have. But the guys and girl I'm trying to build for all know that this is a hobby and that I work 7 days a week and have for most of the last 9 years so I just have to build after work a few hours a evening. Well I really appreciate you guys looking at my knifes.
Thank you,
Griffin.

griffin you have a talent for taking a piece of metal and turning it into a very nice looking blade. big thumbs up to your talent. if you ever get caught up, i would like you to make me one too, but i am in no hurry. i would enjoy owning a handmade knife from someone as talented at it as you are. it has been enjoyable viewing the pictures of the process from start to finish on your knives. keep up the good work. very impressive.

His knives seem to be very well thought out and well made. Mine is sharp as a mother in laws tongue and by accident discovered the pther day throws well.

Thank you very much. I like wood work and there is something about steel work that I just find calming I can sit for hours and be sanding or doing file work and time flys by. If u have a idea of something u want u can let me know and I'll add you to my list. But if u just want a nice good hunting/daily carry knife I'm gonna be making some to sell for a good price as soon as I catch up and they will be knifes I would use or carry myself. I build each of these knifes and blanks like they are for myself and I'm not gonna send one out I wouldn't be proud to carry myself. I hope web I get a few more knifes under my belt they will get even better. I'm learning alot.

play the victim, be the victim
