    Hey. My name is Michael Miller and I am learning to make knives.

    I am currently making knives as a hobby and I have a lot to learn. I would love some constructive criticism on my work, and I have tons of questions to ask. I don't think I will be ready to sell anything for a while, but a pass around my be a possibility on the next batch of knives I am working on.

    Anyway here are some pictures of some knives I have made.

    This is a neck knife I made for a left handed friend of mine

    Your stuff looks good. I'm pretty sure your "friend" there is a good judge of your work.
    I look forward to seeing a lot of quality work from you.
