Past year has been busy, haven’t had tons of time for knives, but got this one done 

Old Nicholson file so probably w2 

And curly pear handle, first time i ever tried a coke bottle shape besides a few minor issues, less than the previous knives though. 
 

onto the next !

I like it, looks handy!

 

Personally prefer a small guard or finger groove as I can see slipping up on the edge, but appreciate the style.

Nice job. I love the top view, you got a very defined and symetrical coke bottle shape.

I like the palm swell.  It should assist with preventing the hand from riding up on the blade.  Just my taste, but I think that it would look better without the brut de forge.  But as I said, just my taste.

Thanks all :)  I would agree it would definitely look better without the forged flats, but this one was just a test to see if I could forge and grind bevels evenly. This was my first attempt at a coke bottle handle and it turned out better than I thought it would.
