    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.

    I'll give you $10 and will talk about shipping.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    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!

    I have to ask, how many times did you cut yourself?
    "harder" is not a very good safeword.

    Ooh, access to couch's pictures will be tough to beat.

    OK. $25, shipping, and the location of jsharr's basshole.

    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.
