This is my first attempt from a blade and guard I bought and an antler from a deer I took years ago:
Most kit blades I've seen are rough and require a fair amount of finishing work if you want a nice finished product. I have another 3 blades and 2 other knives that only need scales to finish and after that I think I'll stick to someone else doing the work for me. I just don't have the time for all my hobbies...
