This is my 4th attempt

This is a tanto style knife, it has a bit of a drop point to it.

This is before heat...

It will be polished to mirror finish


I was planning on doing a traditional wrap in peracord.

It's sort of hard to tell which end is which. Is the point to the right? Going on that assumption I would change two things.


1) I would grind the other point off, unless you have a good reason for it. They tend to poke your hand.


2) I would deepen the chisel grind, maybe as much as half the width of the blade. What you have right now won't cut very well.




BTW, it's paracord, as in parachute

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Not too bad at all. I'm assuming the pointed tip at the end of the handle is for hammer fisting someone with side or downward strikes, right? Regardless, I might suggest adding some curvature to the lower edge of the handle for a better grip, especially since it's only going to be wrapped with paracord, but other than that nice work, congrats man.
