    First attempt on kitchen knife

    Hi all,

    it's my first post here.
    i had a new belt grinder, knife making is more interesting.

    i tried to make a petty, but end up with satoku-ish one. too less pointy.
    it is SK5 steel 1/8" thick. HT'ed by self using butane torch

    here are the pics






    Cheers
