    It's finished my newest knife 5th one i have made. It's for my wife. It would make a good skinning knife but I don't think she will ever use it for that. Now I just have to have my local leather guy do a sheath for it. Thanks for looking!
    What do you guys think?

    Marlin That is a big awesome knife. Can't help but like that one. I like the grove in the blade. I hope to be able to do a clean grove like that one day.

    He makes knives as a hobby and sells them occasionally. My hand axe in my huntin pack was made by him same as my good hunting knife. Most of my kitchen knives are made by him to. His knives are very......light. his specialty is makin alloy knives. Usually w titanium. He makes alot of knives and stuff out of leaf springs. My axe has 60 folds in the head. The knife i posted has about the same #. Its made of 480 ss.

    That's awesome, I just started making knifes but its a good hobby for me this time of year. I'm using large saw blades to make mine. A guy I work with makes them out of the same blades and sells a lot of his. He also does damascus steel too I wish I has the equipment at home to do It. But till I get better I'm gonna stick to saw blade knifes and maybe a file and leaf spring or two.

    Files make good blades....so does 55 gallon drums. If you have a forge or torche that is. The torch requires help though. Iv made a few knives w him. And i loved it. Then again my main passion besides my fiancee is gunsmithing and weldin. Plus i hunt/fish almost year round.
