Kindly post your entries and a photo or two here.
It's a small paring knife made of 1/16 A2. Blade length is 10 cm and overall length is 20 cm. The handle is black linen micarta with a blue acrylic pommel just as an attempt to set it off a bit.
I had made another with a burl handle shown in the original thread but after making both, I think the handle on this one is more comfortable and better proportioned. So I am changing my mind and giving the better one.
A suggestion had been made to put the handle on a buffing wheel but I don't have one and am not in position to buy one right now so I will NOT be offended at all should the recipient choose to put a shine on it with a wheel. This is sanded to 1500 and paste waxed.
Looking good. Congrats! All you need now is a person to send it to.
I won't be sending until the 26th. Headed out of the country on vacation. Should anyone want to break into my shop while I am gone, please clean up a bit while your there.

Nice looking bunch of knives guys. I'd be happy to receive any one of them.
Is there any more to come in? Today is supposed to be the cutoff.

Ooooh! Sweet little knife Jason.
Thanks Dan. Seemed appropriate as the handle material came from my secret Santa on here.
90% done, messed up the one I was going to send and fixing it was going to be fustrating
