I got up WAY too early this morning

Something woke me up about 4 am, I couldn't get back sleep, so I went out to the shop and created these before work. Tell me what ya think.

I like it. Turn the handle into a bottle opener, and I'll like it even more.

I like them too. Very creative on the handle design. Hard to get enough beef in the handle of a blacksmith knife and make it look good. You made it work with those two.

Haha, 4:00 I get up at 3:30 pretty much everyday (except today cause my power was out) but my neighbors would kill me if I forged at that hour! Anyway, nice job on those. I espicially like the top one.

Prizzim, I really like the bottle opener idea, that 'd make it a perfect "tribal" multi-tool, Ill have to work that into the next one. What more would you need ? Knife , firestriker & beer opener ... that pretty much covers the necessities.
