Cool Here's the finished knife

And, after you have finished the course, you should wind up with a great knife similar to this.

I started with the same Delta-5 kit you will receive, left out the rear bolsters, and substituted the black canvas micarta handle scale material for the semi-finished scales sent with the kit.

It's a fine looking knife. Now all it needs is a good tough sheath.:first:

I wish I could tell you. Our plans for the next classes are kind of on hold now.
