First one that wasn’t intended to be a practice piece.

Nice job. Keep it up! :D

Nicely done! I like it.
One small comment at the ricasso. A qtip with acetone is really good at getting the epoxy removed that is squeezed out. I also learned to keep watching for more epoxy getting squeezed out, since it expands a little while curing.
Have you made a sheath yet? Working with leather is really fun!

Thanks for the tip. Just did the handle on my next one and same problem. Gonna have to work on keeping the epoxy cleaned up.

get a 3/16 brass rod and sharpen to a chisel. it will remove epoxy and not scratch your blade.
