Knife #7, first flat grind, tapered tang

5160 steel, flat ground blade courtesy of "Harvey Dean's" v##eo. Tapered tang and zebrawood scales with steel pins. Really like the way this one turned out. You flat grinding specialists feel free to critique me.

Good work.Personaly I dont like mirror finishes and think this one would look much better with a scotchbrite or 400 grit finish.

gack, that is nice! all my blade making attempts so far look like dangerous pieces of metal you might find h##den in the *Ahem* bunk, of your local State Penitentiary. Good going, what is your secret?

Every day is a good day.
