    Looks far less dangerous than my heel out! I'd take that and trade you my F&R. It bats me up like ... dickens.... every time... disclaimer-- To be clear, I am not attempting a purchase or trade in open forum...

    I am 1/2 considering making the scales shorter and transferring the inlays.
    Of course in Ebony...

    Ebony truly is sh*t wood from a structural pov. Breaks, splinters, has no strong grain...
    It looks nice but as wood it's a failure

    First four from the left/top are out of O-1 tool steel.
    First knife is a new handle material from Janz knife supply, it's corncob. I'm keeping this one.
    Second is handled in desert ironwood.
    Two razors, still need to final grind them.
    Last is a problem I am dealing with, I have access to a lot of railroad car springs and it's just not working out for me dang it...steel is falling apart, literally.

    The knives look nice, though a bit too bulky imo.
    Btw, you might want to make a small cut between the edge and the shoulder. Otherwise once you start honing it you'll always have a part near the shoulder that never touches the stone correctly.

    Ya, I usually use a small round file before HT, now I will have to break out the dremel. You would have thought I would have learned/remembered that by now. Believe it or not, those big blades sell here in the US better than the small more useful ones. Folks are wearing them as a fashion accessory believe it or not.

    when it is structualy sound (the above pce was not) it is one of the finest woods in the world.
