My first knife

Simple 1095 kitchen knife, I haven't really polished the blade up too nicely. I got in a rush and wanted to put the handle on lol.


All in all it didn't come out too horrible? I think it was a respectable first blade.

Looks great! Much nicer than my first.

How'd you heat treat?

Using the wood charcoal pieces I started a fire and used a hair dryer to get it up to temperature. Once the steel became non-magnetic I quenched it in hydraulic oil from our tractors.

Thank you everyone! I took most of my time primarily thinking it through and watching people make knifes in videos online and then planning how I want mine to turn out. I must say it did come out closely to how I imagined it. I appreciate the warm welcome from the community :)
