I guess the mission was accomplished. I made many mistakes and learned from each one. My next project will hopefully be more refined.
Perhaps after 20 knives I will have something worthy of being an heirloom.
Thanks for accompanying me on this journey. I'd like to thank all of the knifemakers who post how-tos, blogs and videos which kept me moving ahead, learning and craving more.
My next knife project is a CPM154 piece, the AD1.
