Thanks for the response all valid feedback, i hope my response doesn't come across as me being defensive.
I did try to slow down for this one, as for the sanding the footage in the video is an early grit not what i would be doing for the finish, however i still did not do the best finish you can see me show the finish of hand sanding before i put on the handles.
I stock remove a lot of knives as this's more a hobby making youtube =D the steel is stainless and the 12c27 is not that great and hand forging from my understanding ?
I do have the 2x72 variable speed grinder, great point about slowing it down for the bevels i will be doing this next time
The handle on this blade is what the person receiving it requested as it's his design, the way you hold this in your hands with the top and bottom being able to rest your hands actually feels really comfortable, i will keep an eye out on the next blade and put more thought into handle geometry
Great tip with the epoxy i will try that next time, i was also going to try to completely do the handle off of the blade before i attach, would you recomend this ? or is it overkill
thankyou again for your feedback i realy do appreciate it, no way to improve without honest feedback
