Its hard to believe but here is Knife #200 I just finished up. I made my first knife in 2007 from an old saw blade and it didn't hold an edge for crap, mainly because I had no idea what I was doing! That led to using old files to construct blades from and eventually I settled on 1084 as my main steel of choice just because it works really well with the setup I have. I Think I learn something new from each blade I make. It's been a fun 10 years and I hope to keep at it for awhile.

This knife is from 1084, it has stag scales with red liners and a stainless guard. I didn't want anything too fancy, just something practical that is made to use.

That is a great looking knife! Great material choice and the size looks to be perfect and useful.

You should keep it, It's a special knife!
