Clip Point

Happy with this one. First one with a full flat grind and like the handle. O1, Texas Osage with brass.

Very nice Tex

Looks very good and that looks like a very good grind. Love the handle although you did get that one pin a little too close to the edge. Grade? A-

Thank you. Either Iím messing up on the handle grind and itís not even so it looks like the pin is off or my drill is not aligned and drilling on a slight angle.

Tex, drilling the holes in the handle to match the tang is the very critical part of the assembly. I know what you did. You were grinding the handle and tang and got a little closer to the pin than you wanted. Been there done that. Beautiful knife nevertheless.

Definitely something I need to pay attention to. I have a couple with the same issue. Practice, practice, practice.
