Project Ugly Knife...

A while back I got the urge to make a no frills, no BS bushycraft knife prototype. I had a woodlore style blank I was working on in CPM3V and decided to regrind it and reshape it. The pics that follow show the progression... here's the blade fully shaped and partially ground.
