First ever attempt at knife making

Hey from the UK. First ever attempt at this new hobby. Started a very basic coal forge with a hairdryer. I used rebar as my steel (I know its mild steel but I thought I'd start getting the basis first). Went for a tanto style and just got on the files. Work in progress

Hey Mark. Welcome. Whereabouts are you based?

Nice part of the country. Good start you have there. Once we are let out again, and assuming you are hooked (likely), I would highly recommend taking a class. Best thing I ever did. Definitely smoothed the learning curve.
