Pix of my 1st Kit

I just wanted to post the link to the pix of my 1st kit. It is not done yet. I have some black ash dyed blue I am shaping for it now. I have held off the final polish until I am done tweaking. I am very new to all of this so constructive tips are welcome. Let me know what you think.

Alex,
I have a tip.
You have captured the very essences of the Gpc1000.
The tip is to keep making them.
Great Job .
EXCELLENT!

Very nice Alex, I especially like the "understated" look, too much can be too much

Alex,

Darrel is right ... "you captured the GPC's essence!"

I really like the way you did the thumb relief. And the Black G10 has the perfect finish on it for that material.

Excellent work!

Images are cool, too!

Alex

Alex-

Over the next 24 hours, as more and more see what you did with this knife and offer up their comments, your 1st knife will have (rightfully) taken this forum by storm! You did an awesome job my friend.

This is as clean a job on a kitknife as we've seen here, (and it doesn't hurt to have such nice pics of it either ) every nook and cranny is super-sharp!

If the forthcoming onslaught of rave reviews doesn't encourage you to dive in and further explore your abilities, than let me be the one to ask you nicely...please make more knives. This was pure pleasure to view.

Conratulations on an extraordinary effort.

Dennis

Yeah Baby!

PS. Gotta love that filework...:cool:

Alex,

You done real good! ! ! !

Very Clean and Elegant. It looks like you put it together flawlessly. Simple G10 scales and the stainless spacer really look nice together.

And your Photography is terrific. You suck. I can't get a good photo to save my butt.

Great clean work.
Really like the filed back spacer, not too busy.

Thanks for the look.
