    had a few armed sherriffs down the way from me and it kept my attention till they all left. I called in and they told me "we have it under control.." .. sure..

    Knife blank

    Here is the blade blank its 1095 spring steel and its just the rough grind at this point.

    When I arrived home the other day there were 3 sheriff cruisers on my street and i watched as my neighbor and a sheriff walked around with rifles in hand. My neighbor was walking to his house and the sheriff was returning to his cruiser.
    So it put me on alert.

    what do you think of the design?

    yea thats what had me worried, i have lived in a gang infested urban area, and out in the middle of nowhere near a prison in my past. so whenever i see police in force with the big guns out, i like to watch my back.

    i hope to get some more work done on it this weekend
