Thong hole tube: Nickel Silver

I think ya done good Eric. Those grind lines look super and from what I can see, you got the edge well centered.

Good job,

Steve, your plastic basket trick worked really well.
Boss, it's really completed knife #2. Believe me when I say I have plenty of paper weights in my shop now hehe.

Not sure what Steve's plastic basket trick is... but if it helped you get grinds like those on your second knife, I think it's a trick I need to know. :3:

The plastic box trick is just a large white Rubbermaid storage bin laid on it's side to create a makeshift light box. I put mine on my kitchen island with a hanging light directly above it. It diffuses the light and reduces the glare.

Eric, you need to come by and I'll give you a critter skin of some sort as a background.
