You make things look too easy. Cutting that 1/4" material down to 2 - 1/8" pcs with a hacksaw isn't a pc. of cake. The blade wants to drift on you and at least in my case I end up with the flat factory side and another side that is wavy. Thank you for sharing your videos! I love that handle material.

I agree with ya about cutting. It happened with me not once and I have enough practice. But it is a not main thing in this video. You can use material with thickness which you like. And thank you!

Turned out perfectly, that is one flashy kitchen knife! ::tu:: ::tu::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
