Long handle to fit a big hand.

Long handle to fit a big hand.

I have started my first knife from scratch.  We will see how it goes.  Here are some photos of the knife that I profiled.  It has been a learning experience.  The steel I used is 1080.  It is my understanding that 1080 is a is a simple carbon steel that is great for beginning knife makers, easy to work, great hardening qualities. and makes a great knife.  I will keep you posted on the progress.  Image
