Looks like it would make a nice utility knife with a rustic finish.

Did you heat treat it ? Nice if you did and you get it nice and sharp: A real knife using knife should be very sharp.

Looking forward to seeing the next one. Big Grin Cool

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Yepp I did. Didn´t have any lensseed oil though so I have to reheat it for that later. I´m still just in the beginning of my career as a hobbie smith so time will tell if i get any good. The other knife is harder to do, because of its length. Its going to be aprox 70 cm long and my forge is an old army issue fieldforge so it is somewhat tricky.
