I Forge Iron

That looks very functional, and it looks like you forged your bevels in nicely.

Suggestions, I'd make the transition from the handle to the blade somewhat steeper to help stop the hand from sliding onto the blade. Also I usually try and keep my pins around 3/8" from the ends of the handle scales to help prevent the scales from splitting.
 I made several knives with the handle tapered towards the butt, and what I found was if it was a chopper or a slicing knife I tended to keep needing to readjust my grip; so I began making the pommel area wider or at least the same size as the guard area on my bigger knives.


Keep making 'em!
