Thought I'd share a project that my 19 year old just finished. While many guys his age seems to be interested in face jewelry or having their favorite image tattooed on their bodies, this one spends that time and effort creating works like this one

That's awsome! I've always wanted to learn knife/swordmaking. He's a lucky young man.

What grade of steel did he use? That tanto point looks menacing!! Probably go right through a cinderblock with that point. Sweet knife!!

Thanks guys, I will pass on the kind words
I have no idea which alloy he used, he's all the time doing stuff like this when I don't have him on other things...and I stay out of his way when he is in his zone. This was a knife he made for a friend of the family that is a fed air marshal, who used to be special forces. They trade out work for gadgets now and then, and I just took this picture before it ended up gone.

That is a very nice knife.

NICE!! Tell him to keep it up and one day he may make a living doing something he loves.

Very nice work! For a 19yr old that's 10/10!

You should consider setting up a small forge for him if you have the room.

It is mighty dangerous looking.

I get the feeling this is a CNC piece, very symmetric and the logo looks engraved, not stamped.

I plan on integrating the precision machines I have acquired into my future knives, to date they have all been freehand.

It is a gift to manual makers that you can't look at both sides at the same time!

He did it all on manual equipment, which includes the most basic of hand tools. The engraving was in fact computer controlled, as it is the same equipment we do SBRs and lots of other projects

I meant no harm.

Anyone who has the passion to make stuff like this is a kindred spirit of mine.

He diid sharpen it by hand, right?
