    This blade has a mind of it's own. Start off to do a scandi grind ends up a flat grind 🤢

    I decided to let it be what it wants to be. Flat grind drop point.
    skinner
    Etching to be done and then the handle. Still figuring out what im gonna do
    Options. Just plain wood
    Or fancy lineners
    Or brass and bone inserts

    The etching was a horrible failure. I need to redo.

    Not happy with the results.
    Positive is that i can personalize the blade and the sheath. Someone will get a knife for free.

    Just too many mistakes.
    The grind
    The etching. My logo not as u want it
    The scales too far forward making the customer name look as a after thought.
    The front of the scales not fitted 100% loose
    The general shape of the scales not very attractive

    After some thought i gonna remove the scales and try and improve the quality. Worthy of my name 😎

    Just a question... Is the name "Samsung" not trademarked? You don't want to create the impression that the knife was made in the east?

    Template cut out. Proportion fees right, the cutting edge curve feels like it will be able to cut like described by the client

    Maybe have a look at growing lights. As far as I remember they have a UV component, but not sure about the rest.
