Awesome post pics when it's finished.

Just finished this small knife. the one I did earlier had epoxy showing to much. So I built this today as the replacement and I like it. It's harder for me to build the smaller knife. I'm not sure why.

Many of you know my beloved KA-BAR was stolen in a robbery a few months ago. I contacted Griffin about a replacement.

But! Look what the city's welder gave me just now! It's on my bumper for size reference. Around 2.5 feet long, 1 1/8" wide, and between 1/8"-1/4" thick, high carbon forged steel.

What better piece of scrap to try your hand on making your own?
