Knife #6 in the books

Hi all,

Just finished off my 6th knife. It is the first knife I have made for another person. He wanted a bushcraft knife with a scandi grind to use as a general purpose camp knife. I was a bit leary doing something for someone else as I am still very much in newbie learning mode, but he is a good buddy of mine and insisted he isn't worried about perfections and wants something he can get down and dirty with so I figured what the heck.

This knife is made of simple 1084 carbon steel and the handle is cocobolo... I hope he is pleased!

What Doug said - feed back is important to the learning curve. Good job.
