you're right, it's not so much that I'm not critical of what I'm making, it's that on something like this on the first iteration, i'm pleased if something turns out good at all.

This little knife is capable of shaving below the nose (that'll make sense to anyone who shaves with a straight razor).

I have another knife I'm about to post, and the steel isn't as good, even though my effort was much greater.

I'm not as obsessed with edge holding as some are, either, at least to a reasonable level - I just don't much like edges that fail unexpectedly or give up a bunch of little chips.
