    hey everyone just thought i should share a WIP with you. its a 1ft OAL 6" blade fixed blade knife, just waiting on a delivery of some new grinding belts and then i can finish it up with the 180 then 400 gritt. after that its off to heat treatment and then on go the carbon fiber scales. btw this knife was actually the first time i ground a blade on a knife besides the kiridashi chisel grind i did so i must say i'm quite proud haha. lemme know what you guys think.

    its 3/16" (closer to 1/4" than 3/16") 154CM. and its dual ground and yea its quite a challenge and takes forever but its worth it haha. thanks for the compliments guys. i'll post some pics when its finished, im also working on a coffin style dagger which i'll post some pics of when i grind the blade on that, just waiting for a new shipment of belts. and @six im located on long island

    Looks like an interesting piece. I've not even tried to grind something like that, it looks a challenge. I will say I take my hat off for you going for a dual grind and not a chisel. That must ramp up the difficulty of this knife by at least a couple of notches.

    I look forward to seeing this come to completion.
