It is frustrating because they’re still a ton of things that should’ve been better on this knife. Some mistakes could’ve been avoided easily but still trying to figure out my process

I'm looking but I can't seem to spot anything I don't like about that knife. How does it perform? I also like the job you did on the sheath, especially how you formed the belt loop.

A couple of thing s I see if I may comment, is that the right hand scales looks like it is not full to the tang on the end. Other thing I would rather have a 3 1/2 inch blade but that is my choice. It looks good just too long to my liking.

thank you sir! Seems to perform well I was able to get it shaving sharp which is something I’ve never been able to do before so that was kind of exciting. Also took a good chunk of my Knuckle Off So I would say it performs nicely.Thank you for the compliment on the belt loop I will be stitching it a little different in the future for a better strength but I do like the look and will do something similar in the future.

you are absolutely right the tang is the tiniest bit proud on the back end. I tried a different fitting up process that messed me up on that a little bit. I completely agree on the lenght it was the last thing in the world I wanted to make but I made this for a family member that doesn’t have long left and all he wanted was a 6 inch drop point hunter So I did my best to oblige.
Thank you for your input gentleman.

Nice looking knife Daniel, and that handle is beautiful! Love the grain, especially on the right side.

So, I already told I like it!! you done real good. now I got a question after taking a second look at the knife and the pic above something caught my eye! Where did you get the point protector? Or did you make it? I have split vinyl tubing but, I only use to protect me from the edge/point while working on the blade because it has to be taped on. That one looks like it fits well
