    Some pics of my knives I made.

    There is slight difference in profile, grind and weight on both knives. One weighs 213g (with handle) and the other 230g. The balance point on the lighter one is at the handle, and the heavier over the heel.

    Making these knives gave me a good idea where I need to improve and do things differently. Though I m pleased with the outcome, I am still a few knives away before offering any for sale.

    Next step is to make a couple of knives in different steels and send them for testing and feedback.

    PS: The one with patina I am keeping.
