First spike knife.

It's a lovely job and very well done indeed.

However: Don't forget to unlearn bad habits that will work fine with lower carbon steel but will destroy knife grade steels!

Which is why I don't suggest using spikes for knife practice when knife grade steels can be found just as easily and as cheaply. They will of course be harder to work; but all the lessons learned will be spot on for bladesmithing!
