Finished my first knife

A bit of a let down. So many mistakes. The next one will be better.

Yeah, I can see why you'd be disappointed.










Kidding! Nice work. Keep it up and you're sure to get your process refined.

That knife is plunged very deep into that fence railing.
I'm concerned about your new hobby combined with anger issues.

It's OK. Like anything else it takes practice. Everyone had to start somewhere. You just didn't see their first knives.

So first knives are like first bikes. They tell you what you really want.

I'm impressed.

Proportions are a little off but you did a nice job. I made them in my 8th grade metal shop. Ahh the good old days.

I agree with others, it's a good starting point and seems to have been a good learning experience for you.

yes, your next one(s) will be better - keep this one and years from now you will be able to trace your journey from the beginning.

But i agree it's finished very nicely. What kind of wood is that? Very pretty grain and color!

Cris....

Used to make knives with a deer antler handle.
Bored a hole 3/8" in the end and set the blade with polyester resin(no pins).They hold up quite well.
