My First Blade

Recommended Posts

So I've made a few knife-shaped objects from RR spikes, but this is my first actual, hardened blade.  I took a 2 day class at Tiller's International (look them up, they have a TON of great weekend classes, for the whole family) taught by Tim Carr.  Tim is an excellent instructor.  The knife was made over two days from a coil spring with micarta handles.  Sorry for the poor pics.

Blade is about 4 inches long, total length about 8 inches.

Things I learned:  1.  Basic hammer control is VERY important.  2.  I hate sanding.  See #1.
