Default Most recent knife I am working on.

Here is the most recent knife I have been working on. Shop time in the summer is hard to come by with a 12 year old and 15 month so I have slowed down. About to start putting in more work as the summer winds down. This one still needs some final sanding and polishing and of course sharpening and my mark.

1075 steel bar ground to shape in my shop
Myrtle burl scales
Brown canvas micarta pins
Black liner

You're knives looks so. . . perfect. I mean they're tidy, like an android built them. And that myrtle handle is pretty, too.

LOL Sam. Thank you. But these are not android built. That seems to be my problem with making knives. Every one I make, I see a new flaw I need to correct on the next one. #OBSESSION

Thanks guys for all the comments! I started grinding on a new one last night after about a month off and it was nice to get after it and get the rust off.

Thanks again for the comments guys. I decided I liked the way this one is turning out so much I decided to grind another one that is very similar.
