Hi all,

Wanted to share my most recent production.
  • 6" K-Tip made from O1 steel with full distal taper
  • Stabilized Red Mallee Burl and African Blackwood Handle
  • First etched logo
  • Leather sheath made by a friend
I took a lot of advice from other makers on this one - ground, sharpened, and reprofiled the knife three times. It was tremendously helpful for understanding geometry rather than just flat grinding and saying that is how it should be.

Good job! Looks like a nice little utility knife. Do you have a choil shot by any chance and more info on the steel

Nice job. Looks great and I really like the leather.
How thin did you bring the grind before the secondary bevel?
