Thread: Hello all!

  1. #1

    Default Hello all!

    I am a high-school student and I recently got interested in knife making (more exactly I started making my first steel knife today ). I've already made a couple of wooden knives (karambits and butterfly) so I am really hoping it will look/cut nicely. I absolutely love karambits, they're just beautiful. I have no special survival/knifemaking skills, but I like hiking, workout, swimming and almost any outdoor activity.
    What else to say... Merry Christmas and happy new year to everyone .

    NOTE: The knife I'm working on will be hopefully done tommorow, so I'll try to take some photos and post them here.

    So that knife took me a little more time than I expected, but today it will be done. It must!
