    Default Knife of your dreams

    So it all started with an idea, after 1 month of hard work it is done , here are some specs
    Hand forged
    80CRV2 Finnish Krupp high carbon steel
    Zero degree scandi grind
    59-60HRC hardness
    Gaboon Ebony handle
    Brass pins , tube and 0.5mm spacers
    Covered with 5 coats of boiled linseed oil
    Tapered tang
    21cm from bottom to tip , 10cm recurve blade , 3,2mm thick
    Best quality Polish veg tan leather sheath with basket weave decorations, burnished and covered with natural beeswax
    I also think about making a matching huge ferro rod if the buyer will want one

    Your honest opinion is more than welcome , just consider that it was all hand made , all made with files even the bevel , only power tool used was a drill to make holes

    Nothing to criticize. It looks good and it looks like it would be comfortable in the hand. The only thing I cannot comment on is the heat treat and well well it works. The steel you used is very similar to 1080, which is fairly easy to heat treat. If you achieved the desired hardness and it holds an edge then you are good to go.
