Hi everyone
My name is Tyler and I am new to this site and thought i would post up some of my latest handmade knives. My Dad is on this site and his name on here is Wal he has posted up a few of mine in the past.
All of the blades are made out of ATS34 stainless steel.

Here is a large blade out of ATS34 stainless steel mirror finished. And file work on the spine. It has a black micarta handle. It is OAL 205mm long and has one of my handmade sheaths.

Very nice indeed!!! How old are you Tyler and how did you get into making such fine knives? Have you got some more detailed shots of them that show the file work better for example? Do you sell them?

I am 14 years of age. What started me making knives was a bloke from out at our archery club had a few old blades lying aroud that he gave me to put hadles on and i enjoyed it so then i bought some blades in from the states. and after that I desided i wanted to make the blades and Adam Parker has been teaching me and i have been watching vidioes and reading to learn more.
Here are some pics of the file work on a couple. computer is playing up and wont let me upload to photobucket. dont know why.

Hey thanks for the info and photos Tyler. Wow you sure have a talent there with crafting these knives. It seems you have a great teacher also. That file work looks very impressive as do the sheaths. If you have any for sale you should place them in our Trade Blanket forum. :biggrin:

Incredible work Tyler, all I can say is keep it up. Its great to see you not wasting the "spare" time such n age has on computer games and TV but putting it to use creating and learning new skills.
