Thanks for the extra pics. You make that pattern look easy. I've done it a few times, but haven't managed to be proud of the outcome yet. I'll check out he DVD.

Thanks, but it's really not a jaw dropper. I appreciate the comment though!

I think there are a few issues with this knife proportion-wise. I think I'll shorten the upper branch of the guard by about half. It just looks way too big to my eye.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Peened and blued the pins today. Then I put an edge on that sucker. It's done.

That is excellent work Joshua! I love that frame handle with the file work. Someone is going to be very happy to draw your name this round.
