E. Jacob's First Paring Knife

Scott's eldest son Jacob (almost 13) began forging with his dad over coal at age of four, and he recently began making knives. The following paring knife is Jacob's third finished blade. He ground the knife out of 1080 tool steel, triple-qenched and tempered it, and then dressed it out in Desert Ironwood handles with nickle-silver pins. I think he did an amazing job. See what you think.

Steel: 1080 tool-steel
Finish: Hand-sanded to 800 grit
Handle: Desert Ironwood
Overall Length: 7 1/4
Blade Length: 3 1/4
Weight: 3.1 ounces
