hey guys i haven't posted here in FOREVER! but heres my latest work :)

so i finally got around to making a hidden tang. it was quite the journey! took me a tremendous amount of time to make as it felt as though i had started knife making all over again. each little thing on this knife was essentially brand new to me, and it was an absolute blast to make. i have to hand it to people like nick wheeler and will morrison, both for their excellent WIPS and advice, although especially for nicks incredible yotube channel. i plan on making a ALOT more hidden tangs in the future. the first one was a challenge and I'm now aware of my shortcomings as a maker and can really focus my attention to those areas, theres allot for me to improve and I'm excited about every step of the way. haven't got a name for this one yet but I'm open to ideas! I'm partial to (non cheesy) dog related names lol :unintroduced:


critique is much appreciated, thanks!

Not bad at all, actually it's an interesting curvy piece, and i really dig the somewhat exotic shapes it displays
