Well I figured after getting fed up with a cheap knife made for cutting leather and numerous X-Acto blades it was time I broke down and made a decent knife (not great) but useable. It is sort of loosely based on a Japanese Kiridashi which had the thin angled blade I thought would work best. The spacer moved as I was gluing up and normally would be torn apart and redone but in reality I am not sure I will like the handle so I am running with it for now. Even tried my first free hand grinding on this knife since it was small and if I really messed up I could stick in the jig and straighten stuff out. Actually make a good little project knife for beginner knife makers and serves as a practical tool when completed. Lacewood handle with G10 spacer and pommel done with a hidden tang for practice. Blade is AEB-L 1/16" scrap I had on hand. Black marks on blade are results of the anti-scaling paint not providing any protection and that is what is left of the decarbed layer after far to much grinding and sanding.
