Forged Wood Marking Knife

Hey all.


Lit the forge for the first time in 18months and decided to get a little hammer swinging in. Forged this little wood marking knife/kiridashi style thing for a mates husband who does wood working. She said he doesn't have one so a perfect opportunity to practice forging before I get into making that "Apple Knife". This piece was a cut off file tang and has been hand hammered to shape. I know for alot of you reading this it's a nothing project but after an hour of forging and checking, thermal cycling and heat treating my arms are toast. 


I'm tempering it as I type this and hope to grind it tomorrow. Single bevel obviously. 


I'm pretty happy with how it turned out for my first run out of the gate, does anyone have any feedback?
