    Finished my second knife ever. 15n20, the handle is dyed karelian Birch & brass. Made with and angle grinder & file jig. Hand engraved. I just need to re clean the polished edge. I am contemplating putting a micro bevel on this but I will test it out 1st and decide.

    There is lots of room for improvement & I have learn't a lot from this knife. Any feedback would be appreciated. IMG_20191007_171203_237.jpg

    Nice job, much better than my second knife was! Just keep making them and they'll get even better with more experience. Looking forward to seeing your future knives!

    I see! I think I got your name ;)

    It would be better to put the forth character "ー" horizontally when you describe Japanese words horizontally.
