    Way to go Chris!
    Looks killer. Especially nice work on the handle. It's also cool that it's lefty-o-centric for you.

    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!!!!!!!
