New guy here with a knife I just finished
 
Hi, I just finished making this knife. I'm a new guy to this forum but thought you folks might like to see it.

That is very nice looking knife! Was the blade made from a file? I like that you left the file feel on the back of the blade, presumably for grip. How did you get that much shine on the blade finish?

Nice work! What did you use for the handle? Welcome to the forum.

Dan308 03-09-2012 10:18 PM

Thanks for the welcome. It was indeed a file. I heat treated it and it's all hand sanded and polished. The wood is Afzelia from cambodia. I make most of these for fun anyway.
