Today I completed my 50th knife! I have built 50 knives. I haven't built 50 of anything before, so I am quite excited by this. Also, since it was my 50th knife, I decided to make the whole thing myself, blade and all! And, since I was limited with my materials, I decided to try a folding knife.
This may have been a mistake. I now see why guys who make folders charge so much for them! It took me MUCH longer than any other knife I've made before! And I think it's a little big in the handle or a little small in the blade. It's not much of a "pocket" knife. But will be great as a belt knife once I get a little sheath made for it. And I an getting better at sharpening. I used this one already whittle a stick into a sharp point!
I'm sure after I hit 500 knives, this one won't be very impressive. But you know what? I'm sorta a little proud of it anyway. My first folding knife from scratch. My 50th knife built. this just gets more and more fun! Here it is... #50...
