First i thought the idea of making a weddinggift was a good.

After a while I realized the time could be a issue. 1.5 week for my first knife incl. the blade.
And then it had to be so good that it should suit as a wedding gift.


BUT It worked out great, Im very happy with it. I found a good company that could anneal the blade over the weekend. I made the handle a little bit harder to make for my self but it turn out good enough. The stainless steel was a pain to grind.

Next week a get my milling machine that a bought so I think it shoud be easier next time. 2thumbs

very impressive for your first knife 2thumbs
I think you better make another one and put it to use in you kitchen.
Keep up the great work.
