Bushknife

I began to work on a bushcraft style knife. this wont be a typical bushcraft knife due to its not as plain. Ive had the design in my head for a long time and Im hoping that I will be able to forge it. I finally have everything together the way i need it to be in my garage lol. This shouldnt be difficult tho Ive never attempted all this before.

Ive read many articles and watched countless videos did as much studying as I could to get a level idea on how to approach this. Ive aquired plenty of spring steel from trucks out of the scrap yard and I think Im ready to give it my best, heres to swollen forearms and a broader shoulder...

And for an update on the bow, its still drying. Im slow touching on a few things with it yet, but in time when its ready.
