This is my second knife. I made it mainly only to practice different technigues and see how the design works in real life. The knife turned out much better looking tahn expected and it fit my hand relly well. This was a budget build and I’m only using some scrap materials (pine and unknown structural steel) and some shoe polish to finish the wood because I didn’t happen to have anything else with the color I wanted. The shoe polish worked perfectly as far as I can tell.

I also practiced videomaking on this project: https://youtu.be/qIlTxUYzwy4

Great video. I like the way you start with a drawing to show the finished concept before just going to a bunch of cutting and grinding video.
