  2. overall length is 13 3/4 inches long and 1 1/4 inch wide at its widest point and 1/4 inch thick at the thickest
  3. this is my second knife of the day and its made from 3 inches of a concrete breaker bit (i always thought they were jackhammer bits but was corrected) and i believe its around 1080 and thanks to JD i found a new style of blade to try and i think it came out pretty okay as far as the rough forging is concerned. its currently annealing so i wont have the final forged dimensions for a bit but heres how i did it. let me know what you guys think.

  8. thanks for all the critique and info guys its been very helpful! my names rob by the way and ive seen a couple questions about with the guard and that circular piece closer to the guard (thats just a nail head thats acting as a temporary pin) but the guard is stacked nickle brass and i still have about 4 more layers to add on unfortunately the walls of my shop needed repainting so i have been able to work for a few days so hopefully ill have a better picture of what i mean soon! i agree about a slightly more rounded handle so ill be working on that soon....once again thanks for the awesome wel
