I started this last Tuesday and just finished the sheath today (Saturday). I need to do a better job sharpening it, and I want to engrave something like my initials, but those are not really holding me up from calling it done for now.

Very nice, I like. I like the belly. That would make a great skinning knife. What steel?

That is a fine job and much better than my first knife! I'd toss mine but the wife keeps it around. :)

Thanks charles... I used what steel I had available at the moment, so this one got cut from my machete blade... And my intention is to use this knife to skin my first ever whitetail this season. I tend to be overly sentimental sometimes and using my first knife on my first deer would be something special.

Thanks Valk, and that sounds backwards to me... I keep EVERYthing and my wife is constantly trying to toss stuff out! :)

Thanks Jim! I really want to come see your shop soon, and maybe you could help me figure out how to get a better edge on this one...

I like how you have the handle on there. Gotta give some great control.

A great first effort. Real nice design. Keep at it.

(It took me 3 to get my first:))

Very nice! Looks like it's perfectly suited for skinning.

Well done. Looks like it would make a good skinner/utility knife.

I like that knife. I like your sentimentality as well. Re-watch Castaway again sometime (Tom Hanks). With all the 'gotta-have' crap these days, nothing rates up there with a good blade and a firestarter.
