    Way to go Chris!
    Looks killer. Especially nice work on the handle. It's also cool that it's lefty-o-centric for you.
    "See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

    I can not believe that is a first attempt, it really looks professional! How many hours would you guess you have in it?

    Well, I've done a few handles, and a few dozen sayas, but it's my very first knife that I've designed from the ground up.

    I'd say I have three hours in the handle, one hour in the saya, a half hour rounding and polishing everything, and another hour cutting in the initial bevel and polishing it....
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
