Ok, this is my first blade.

Recommended Posts

the originally posted knife would look better 'stabbier' IMO - The edited posts makes me feel ive missed something on the critique of the knife.

Same here, John.  I stepped away from the computer and came back to a response that sounded as if a moderator had deleted an offensive post.  At any rate, I for one, appreciate honest critique from more experienced bladesmiths.  I hope to be at a point in this journey some day to make educated/experienced comments about others work........other than just saying I like it.

I don't think so. I may be wrong, but I don't think anyone said anything rude.

I think Mr, Keys may have been unaware of the zero tolerance for flamers policy around here.

Completely understandable, considering the way new makers get treated elsewhere on the interweb.

But "we" don't seem to be treated with any intolerance here.  I'm very grateful for that, Josh.

Take that blade to a certain seax group I'm a member of. The criticism would be downright salty! 

 

A well done blade btw! I have to agree with Joshua, and Alan, but you did it well!

Seriously. Some of these new guys. First knives that put my early stuff to such shame. Makes me happy to see new talent.

Some of the first knives that beginners post here make me want to pack up my anvils and take them down to the scrap yard.  Oh wait, someone's already done that for me..
