    Thank you! I tend to be a little of a perfectionist. Like I said earlier, I think all in all I am moving in the right direction! Hopefully the next ones will show much improvement! I have so far found that if I pay attention and take my time, I get a better result! So on to the next! As for the sale, it was odd to me that he made a very concerted effort to contact me, and then once I delivered, nothing. oh well, I guess no news is good news?:cool:

    I'd say go ahead and heat treat them, these look much better that most of the blade blanks I've seen in catalogs or online.

    I like this one... :inlove: :D

    Blades look good to me. For your first try, you are way ahead of the curve. You'll only get better from here!

    Okay Knife-a-holics, here is my last grind for the weekend. I was fortunate enough that my neighbor (I live in a duplex type situation) was gone all weekend, so I was able to grind without guilt! :p I think this is my best to date, and it definitely makes a huge difference when I take my time. Looking into heat treating and then once that is done, handles will go on!

    They have all looked good so far, but I'm a big fan of this one.

    I am NEW! I am a quick learner. I think maturity has a lot to do with it. I know that when I was younger I would have become very frustrated early and my patience level was not very high. Thank you! I am hoping to get better. I have a lot to learn about the abrasives, I think that is my biggest weakness at the moment.

    If you continue to progress that quickly, you wont need a day job soon.

    There is definitely some skills involved with that last one.

    Love the blade shape. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Absolutely. What really helps to get a better perspective in my opinion is putting the item away and not looking at it for a day or two. Often something you consider horrible while working on it turns into acceptable or even pretty good. :)
