Real nice!! I just found a knife that I gave my Dad years ago, while going through some of his things that hadn't been touched since he passed. Brought a smile.

What kind of machine did you use for those bevels, and how was it heat treated ?

I only use a bench disk grinder, a little Task Force belt grinder, and files.

I then heat treated it by quenching in water and then went over the handle and spine with a toarch.

I have found its very hard to get a hollow grind by hand. Most of us use a contact wheel.

This blade shape and file detail, looks a lot like some kit blanks I have seen, Just wondered, since you posted this as a first blade.
