Learned a lot from making my first knife. Mostly from well established people from this site. Overall length so far is 9.75 inches. Made from A36 Steel. Bevels are more or less even on both sides. Not heat treated yet because I still have some improvements to make. The belt sander has made the process much easier but I think the bastard will file is still the best way to establish the bevels.
Some time ago I put a handle on a finished blade I bought to make a handle for. This knife was for practice. The story and the first knife are here. For this knife I used the full tang blade I made in the stock removal class I took in March. The scales are Bubinga and a wood similar to walnut that I have had close to forty years and can't remember the name. This knife was also practice, but I am also trying to do the best I can, and just get practice. I was also looking for more "gotchas", and boy, did I find them... The blade I used was about 8", and I would have preferred 9" to 9.5". T
