Finished a set of three knives. Blades were purchased. In the photo on the top the two toned handle knife turned out pretty nice where I made the blade out of a ferriers rasp but I’ve found I enjoy premade blade steel much better.

Beautiful Work! :)

The one piece looks similar to a Winkler.

Pretty work. There is nothing better in life than creating a thing with yer own teo hands. Commendable, indeed.

Very nice.

I have a skinning knife I hand made. It's not as pretty as yours, but I got the shape right and it's easy to use. I'm waiting for my SIL to set up the forge he scored so that I can make my own Damascus blade. Hopefully, he's getting on with it during the lockdown.

Very cool.
The wife and I were just admiring some Damascus steel the other day.
Though we already have a pretty comprehensive set of knives.

I love knives and multi tools. I have 2-3 multitools on me at any time. These in the photo are my everyday kitchen knives. A friend made all but the big butcher knife (needs a proper cleaning). I tend to like more raw looking knives versus super clean ones.

Jon1116 - I love the two tone handle one and the tanto style ones. You do really good work.
