Hi guys,
I am so exited to have made my first knife.
I made this knife out of a 12" circular saw blade.
Dimesions are: .02" thick, blade is 5", overall 9".
cutting it is was a bear. I drilled the profile then used a hacksaw.
Used mostly a file and a delta 1" belt dander for grinding.
The handle is a type of rosewood I had in my shop.
Here are some pics of the finish product.
Tell me what you think.


Thaks,

Alex
