This is the first knife I have made completely by myself. Previously, I have had help with one aspect or another.
Stock Removal Process:
Overall length is 8 1/4" with a 4 1/8" blade.
1095 steel, heated in a coal forge, using a pipe to assist in heat treatment, and quenched in peanut oil.
Blood wood handle
1/4" Copper tubing for thong hole
Handmade leather sheath, hot waxed for durability.
I ask for any and all criticism, as I truly enjoy making knives and want to do the best possible job.
I made this for myself as a EDC KNIFE.
