Lekker man. Handy knife to take on a hunt that. Only slight critique (no offence intended) is I would have preferred more of a distal taper. Is it blue or is that just the light?

That was my mrs holding up a peice of material so that the mirror polish didnt show my ugly face in the picture! No offence taken, that's why I ask for critiques. To be honest I still struggle with distal taper

Good to see you made it through and the internet is on again! :ph34r:

That knife looks good and obviously your skills are improving.

No critique from me, but an observation - I'm guessing we're sitting with the exact same 6mm 5160.

I've developed a thing about weight, so I don't want to make relatively smaller knives from 6mm stock, the sad truth is they would sell better than what I made.....
