KDX very clean. I like the belt finish on that.

I still have some dialling in to do. But I'm really liking the yellow liner with the blackwood.

Thanks. It's in the tumbler now. I like the finish, but it's a finger print magnet and it's a working knife so it might as well get stone washed.

Done. I love the blackwood. I say this about every knife I make. But this one I truly wish I could keep.

That looks awesome ty. Same to you kdx. By the way, what is the name of type of file/grinder work that you have on the top of your blade?

Thanks... but I was not clear with my question. What I mean to ask is what is that type of file work called? As in I know it's not a vine, but it must be called something I would think. I want to google it but I don't know what it's called... lol. The part that I'm talking about looks like one would file across the spine, but you would hold the file say 30 degrees from horizontal.
