Nice work...
you could do some of both. If you decide to coat, I'd go with a non-reflective gray or black. Just my personal choices.

What type of steel?

Those look pretty sweet. I've been toying with the idea of making my own knives but know absolutely nothing about it. Any pointers on places to look?

Thanks Everyone!

I have been using 1095 lately however have worked a ton of different steels in the past. Now a days I like D2 and 1095 the best I think.

Ya I'm torn on the stonewash vs coating (cerakote). The coating offers better weathering resistance (rust, etc.) but the stone wash looks really nice. Also contemplating maybe doing blackwash (acid stone wash).

As far as a good place to start... Knifedogs is really friendly (out of the big 4). I learned and am still learning under apprenticeship, as well as going to school for CNC and 3d modeling/design, but at 25 I've got a lot of fun ahead of me

No not really I don't find it very enjoyable... To me it's like using an abacus when I have a Ti-89 next to me... But I'm young so perhaps in time I may consider it.

I like the pikal knives on top. The rest, I think, could use at least half-guards.

Just my opinion, natch.

Nice looking blades. How hard do you heat treat them?

BTW, D-2 iw a great steel, but Crucible now makes CPM D-2. If you can find it, it's an order of magnitude improvement over standard D-2.

BTW, consider a nice vinegar or lemon juice patina, instead of a "Mall Ninja" coating.

Five down from the top, the "Sheepsfoot/Wharncliffe is really neat looking. I've always loved a wharnie with it's straight cutting edge.
