    guys I'm progressing a lot in this world to make knives. this is my new creation, I found these pieces of steel and thought would be good to make a knife. the handle is made of cherry wood and bubinga. I have polished blade with water sandpaper until 2000 grit. I've also added paracord lanyard and I made this good quality leather sheath
    hope you like

    Pardon me!

    You are crazy- and that´s what i like about you!
    That file indicates you don´t think about the effort
    as much as about the outcome.

    You act way beyond any "average homeworker"

    Don´t stop, please ;)

    I'm very impressed! That is a style that I like. I did not realize how big it was until you held it. Now for 1 about half that size.:cool:

    thanks for the compliment. hahaha. some people call me crazy, I've always thought that I'm normal and everyone else is crazy lol. yes I like it to make great efforts when I get good results. This piece of steel had about 6-7 millimeters thick and it took me many many hours of work, but I think the result is worth the effort
    make sure im not going to stop

    nice work, seems to me like a good usable blade, i wound t mind being in the taiga with such a blade
    no-nonsense, form follows function. i like it that way

    did you heat treat it?

    [​IMG] Zurdo, what a find! And what an excellent job you've done on recycling those materials for your blade, scales, and sheath.

    I can't say enough good stuff.
