Doesn't look bad for a first attempt. You need to make an introduction first though.

That must be a GREAT feeling, like a step down from the birth of a child! Used it on anything? What did you make it from?

That is in fact a picture of my forge. and this knife was made out of half a rail road spike. the tracks run right behind my house, so i have buckets of them.

Ha! I guess like WE wouldn't understand birthing a baby..... They wouldn't understand (Well, the MAJORITY of "them" for the most part) the over-whelming feeling of success you get from designing, creating and using your own tools/contraptions. Makes you feel like a :lifter manly-man!:lifter

Matt,

Welcome and nice blade! I grew up there in the Texas hill country. Miss the canoeing and fishing on the Gualdalupa River there.
