Looks very nice and steady. The only problem would be if you have to move it :D . I envy you with my 30 sm piece of train rail. Can't wait to see some knives (or other stuff) forged on this thing.

Quick, dirty and handy. That's the way I like it... :D

Well, maybe not but it represents the latest knife project I have been working on. Wyz came to me asking for a small but handy knife, so I started working on it. Blade is 1080 carbon steel and the handle is teakwood. Modeled after what I see as an ideal carving knife while keeping it simple and useable for pretty much any task

But as it turned out, it didn't suite his needs, so unless anyone else is interested I'm keeping it myself. Still need to get some leather to make a shieth for it and its good to go for every day carry or what ever you'd feel like doing with it :D

Nice knife, I like the axe handle shape for the handle. I of course love drop point knives, I'll have to try to make one like it, but I personally would make mine a full tang that the metal is exposed on the outside, just my preferences. So far I've flattened a bolt to make a knife, gonna finish when I build a small forge. I'll be back when I finish some knives, I got a pretty cool set, though I need to make the grinds. Any advice to make a 30 degree flat grind?
