Hey Guy: I can not stick with one thing. I saw a knife one of the guys at my work made and i said i can do that. However I made mine the hard way, forging the metal. . I made this knife out of a leaf spring of a car i had a friend cut me a piece with a tourch, then i made a forge and beat the steal till i got the shape of a knife and then sand on my belt sander till i got the shape i wanted. I made the hadle out of african maghagony. I do not have enough different grits of sandpaper so i sanded it out with what i had. then i buffed it out using that white buffing compound, it came out ok . When i get some time i will shine it up some more. Your comments are welcomed.
