    This is my new selfmade hobby knife. It´s made from an old file. I use it mostly for cutting paracord and suff like that. Handle is very simple paracord wrapping with a lanyard.

    I also made a sharpening mount for my Lansky sharpering system. It´s very simple, made out of plywood (8cm x 8cm x 1cm) and a round steel bar (11cm x 12mm). I used gringer to tip of the bar to made it fit for the knife clamp. After drilled a hole both pieces were clued together with two componet clue.

    Thats a pretty sweet looking blade you made coturnix.
    How stable is the sharpener base?

    It´s stable enough, because I keep my left hand on the base when sharpening.
