Well I finished my first non-forged knife. It was a first for a lot of things so I'm happy with the way that it came out. It's my first knife out of o1, and some how I got the hardening/heat treat correct. My fist time with liners on the handle. I used 3 layers - Black white black. First time using a stock removal method. Enough with the words, here is a few pics.

Thanks for looking and feel free to let me know what ya think!

I think it looks like crap and would be ashamed to show anything like it!


As a matter of fact you should give it to me and I'll bear the burden of keeping it hidden.

Looks great! You're getting better and better with each knife! I really like the brass pins and the liners look good too.

What's the thickness of that steel?

Thanks! The steel is 1/8" Thick. The blade is 2" long. The handle is 3 1/4"

Yes sir! Red oak, but it's not very red for some reason... Looks more like white oak. Not sure why.

That does look fantastic. Nice job. I like the overall profile and the scales look great.

That is a great looking knife. I like how the swirls at the blade/handle transition into the natural lines of the wood. It actually flows.

You did a fantastic job. I am jealous.

It looks like it might be too much knife for ya. You should send it to me so you don't hurt yourself with it anymore.

nope. no angle. it's leaning against the axe.

It's a small knife. 2" blade.

ratty1- I know this knife is a monster. I better make one smaller. haha

Just wanted to say that my finger would not stop bleeding, about half an hour of it being elevated and with pressure from some para chord. So, I krazy glued it shut, worked great after a few attempts. Will be adding a tube of that stuff to my FAK.

I should have gotten some stitches but I'm without medical as of now:rolleyes:
Should be fine though, I'll just keep an eye on it for infection.

Thanks Sweeneyguy for the superglue tip. I had forgotten about it :4:

I've been using krazy glue for years. My wife thought I was crazy the first time she'd seen me use it. It took a couple of months before she quit saying that I need to go to the Dr.

Looks really nice. I dig the patina and the shape looks great. I'll trade you some steri strips and neosporin for it...looks like you might need those more than another knife:4:

Thanks! It started out life on paper looking like the top knife, but I ended up combining the two and ended up with this one.

I do. No time for that nonsense. :) It should heal ok, not worried about scars as half of me is already covered in them. Finger moves now with little to no pain so it should be fine.
