here's three real quick ones i knocked out today. they're about 4 3/4" o/a, with 1 3/4" cutting edges. 3/16ths 1080, full hardened, hollow ground on both the back and the single bevel, cord wrap. only one sheath so far, but i'm doing them as neckers. let me know what you think.

Those are cool little knives. I like how you left the main part of the blade upolished. It gives a nice contrast.

thanks. the one i made a sheath for went tonight, to a joiner, and i'll wait to see how it serves him. i'll probably do one for myself, as i've just dryshaved wth one of these kiridashis, and this size with this grind angle seems to work not bad

...As long as you didn't cut yourself...Cool, another dry-shaver...Did you do the bevels/edges on belts or stones?

 

Thanks,
