        Looks good Spoon! I made a simular one myself, using an old blade from a Scharde pocket knive, it works great!
        Thanks for showing it to us. Now go and carve something with it!

            Yep, looks like a right decent piece of cuttlery! Handle and blade seem well balance. The test will be how it carves, but if it's got good steel and has been sharpened well, it sure looks like it will do the job. The double rivets should really stabilize that blade, too.

              Good looking knife, nice shape to the blade and handle...if its good steel , you have a winner there!
