The next batch of 225mm will be larger - 4-6 knives, and I will start as soon as these two are finished.
Very nice Marko!

It looks like just another knife that I made.
For me it's two birds with one stone - show new work and let people know what their knife is completed.
So when you say the saya should withstand stepping on it without cracking, did you step on it?
Yes, an old one.
225mm laser in 52100 with fiddle-back maple handle Spine thickness at the handle, 3.3mm, 3mm over the heel, 1.75mm half way, and 1.5 50mm from the tip, .9mm 10mm from the tip. The blade still needs final polish and name etched. This one also have a slightly flatter profile than one in the previous post.
The knife is taller than appears in the picture (48.5mm)
