    I do believe that's your best yet. The size looks good and you've got the grind down good.

    That is as nice as any handmade knife I have ever seen!

    A dear friend and neighbor of mine is in the high-end knife business - we are talking over $20,000 a knife sometimes. I have seen hundreds of incredible knives in his collection. But I reckon you're right up there with many of these big time knife makers. You've got a gift, Crash.

    My friend deals largly in handmade Randall Knives. They are extremely high quailty. Check out these sites and you might get some ideas or find an outlet to sell your stuff.

That is a dramatic improvement from the last one Crash!! JMO but you are ready to sell them now. I don't know what you were waiting for but whatever it is, you're "there" and then some!!

    Very Nice! Those hollow grinds are looking very uniform. Time to get your name on a few and sell them!

    I'm very pleased with this one. I think I'll stick with smaller blades for a while. I still had some of that cheap steel stock left over from when I first started, so I practiced this blade shape on it (timess 3) before I used the better quality steel. Two of the three ended up in the trash.

    Very very nice Crash! That one is ready for the for sale section!
    Poco, I have heard from some old time knifemakers that if you want to make a million bucks making knives, start out with two million bucks. Hehehehe..... I am beginning to believe it in my case at least. I just love making them.
