I hope he doesn't mind me posting this, i'm that pleased with it though I had to show someone!
Basicly, I put a thread up on here suggesting I make knives for people - pretty much to their spec and perhaps not quite perfect but at a reasonable price - I've not been doing it long and still have a lot to learn so I can't ask for a lot money wise. Wicca, pm'd me nearly straight away and I had his design within 48hours.
The difficult part was the brass bolster he wanted as I'e not done one of those yet, after alot of head scatching and essing about I soldered two big lumps of brass to the blank and to eachother (they're going nowhere!) Unfortunately that meant I had to file some solder off the blade and I'm ashamed to say I marked the blade slightly in doing so. Next I put oak scales on, if you look carefuly at the picture you'll see that I've still got a little sanding to do. I like the oak though, I think I'll use it on my next user.
I know it's not the clearist of pictures, but what do you think?
