Ok, so after years and years of collecting and being fascinated with knives I finally decided it's time to try and make my own. As I mentioned in my other post, I really want to make a set of four, for my dad, me and my brothers as a gift for our first elk trip together in September. I figured I'd post the progress photos as I move through this process to get feedback as everything I'm doing was learned from watching countless youtube videos. I decided on AEB-L stainless and will be sending the blanks away once finished to have them hardened and tempered. The handles will be a mix of stabilized burl and curly maple. I started last night with making the first blank (below) and will slowly be moving through the rest over the next few months so bear with me if there are some breaks in the updates. If you guys see anything I'm doing wrong please let me know lol.
