That has promise!! everything worth doing takes time, I would suggest though, if you haven't noticed, move the top pin down about 3/4"
Heres my own personal I am making for me.
5/16" 1080 9.75" oal
Osage orange handle with blue liner, pcb etched black.
Its not finished yet nor is it as pretty as the others in this thread but, is what Im working on.
you do some great work! I really like the the bottom knife! I'm not very good at leather work but I'm getting better.Thanks!
Here's a few more I finished up just in time for this weekend's show.
Also plan to take some book covers. Just need to stitch, crease them and fold them.
I hate it when stuff like that happens!! I feel ya'! you probably won't do that any time soon! but if you have a drill press do you might consider getting a carbide drill bit and you should be able to cut that pretty easy(costs about $10 and saves are butt every now and then)Daniel, I saw my error post ht. Next one will be further back.
how thick is the blade?I know I could have either drilled out a hole further back or used one I already drilled to reduce weight an let the epoxy cross flow. I only had that size pin or larger. Another thought for the next one is either lighter wood or use thinner scales. Is a bit handle heavy. This is knife #3 so is still a learning knife. Oh Well,if this is the worst mistake I make on a knife I can live with that.
