Little Birdseye Maple handled detail knife, off for 'independent assessment' today. Forging a little blade like this lets me learn a little quicker- make it, take notes and go on the the next. I have a hard time photographing the blade- hi polish reflects light no matter what angle I try. Eventually I'll get to forging a integral knife with a leather wrapped handle. Few more bugs to work out first...
June 22- sent this knife off last week to another carver, wanted his opinion on it- his comment floored me on the forum: "I swear that it starts to cut before it touches the wood. "
