1. Don't get hung up on the finer details of the blade on the first one.
2. Make sure to make the blank long enough for the kind of handle you're going to put on it.
Good luck, keep us posted.
That was kind of the plan except for getting hung up on the finer points on the first one. It is great advice and I appreciate it, I just don't know if I can follow it. I usually get to caught up in trying to get things right. I know better but...
Does anyone have any ideas for the style of the first knife? Anyhting you would like to see attempted?
