here's a take off of the Loveless design skinner.
I changed the handle, obviously not going to be stacked leather like the Loveless one.

Putting Chola Cactus on it filled with black resin to stabilize .

have to say grinding free hand still stresses the hell out of me.

it's W2 and getting a hamon line. Cable Damascus finger guard.

Feeling pretty optimistic about it.

The earliest knife I have seen with that top line was by Michael Price, it is a nice clean design.

Free hand grinding is your chance to fly, develop a skill and every knife you grind will be a little different from the last one.

Good Luck and thanks for sharing!

When you sharpen the top clip of that knife in many jurisdictions it becomes a weapon. I always finish mine up with at least a 1/32 inch flat on the top of the clip. Otherwise caution  your client of the possibility that a sharpened top clip can get him in trouble.

Photobucket will not let us see your photo. Hear they are being jerks on other forms, but am far from an authority.
