I do it with diamond grit hand files and polish the cuts with a dremel

I just got into making knives and I may want to try something like that when I get more advanced, you have an amazing talent.

Thank you. I just got started a few months ago. And I can tell u this with each knife u learn a lot and each one u will get better. I've only built 20 knifes so far but I have 7 ordered plus a few to build and set up for sale in a local shop. Once u start really enjoying each build it gets addictive.

Build something u really like and keep it don't sell your first one. Take your time and YouTube can be helpful. If u have any questions I would be glad to try to help u. I only have 20 knifes built but I have a few friend that build also so I could always ask them too.

Well I was building this for a customer but I didn't like the finished handle. The epoxy is showing in a few places to big. So now I have a knife to abuse the crap out of just to see what it can take. I'm gonna let my brother have it for a few weeks to see if he can break it or not.

I'm about 3/4 of the way done with my first knife (the one that I asked about the scratches on), and I'm almost done with a second knife, all I need to do is wrap the handle with para-cord, and put the final edge on it.
