I'm trying to get into knife making (but my saw broke) any tips on making the handles?

I hand cut a lot of my handles and use a belt sander for the ruff shaping then I do a lot of hand sanding.

Here's mine... Ka Bar Tanto



I realize that the second one is more a gun pic, but it's one of my favorites I have taken...

New EDC knife. Benchmade 275 Adamas.




Compared to my old SOG Trident





It's a nice knife, but it's f***ing huge.

Meh, I liked it alright. It's pretty compact and lightweight for a knife with a 3.75 inch blade, the assisted opening is awesome, Arc lock is nice and ergonomic and hasn't failed me yet, the little cutout for cutting line and rope and s*** is nice. I wasn't too fond of the blade itself. TiNi coating is supposed to be rust-proof and it developed a few spots of rust in two small patches. It lost it's edge pretty fast, which wouldn't be a problem if you're a competent sharpener. I chipped the tip off, but it was while picking a lock, which knives aren't really designed to do. I wasn't a fan of SOG's customer service though, and that's why I decided to get a Benchmade instead of having my SOG repaired. Their warranty isn't very good, I emailed a rep asking about their warranty and if they offered a repair service, never got one back. Benchmade on the other hand, offers a lifetime warranty with their knives, a flat 5$ sharpening and inspection service, and repair and replacement for warranty-voided knives for like 20 bucks, and responded to an email I sent them in like 20 minutes.

I agree...I have the trident tanto. At the time I bought it, it was $80. Like you said, no exceptional edge retention, it's plastic, primarily for weight, but still is too light to instill much confidence. For fully HALF the money, I prefer a KaBar Mule...

My favorite however, is the ZT 0302...
