Tell us about yourself!
Thanks for the inspiration! Not sure what species but, I used a hard-wood and beveled the edges on my router. Pretty happy with how it turned out ;)

Thanks, I really appreciate the kind words!
You absolutely could! I've also thought about cutting out more of the metal in the handle, taking the time to round off the edges, and make a "skeletal" handle. The great thing about making your own knife is that you can customize it to be exactly the way you want ;)
My saw insert isn't as nice of a shape but, I did make a replacement for it and I can't recommend doing this enough. Makes a HUGE difference when trying to cut small pieces. Thanks!

Not the exact same thing but, I used your design for inspiration and worked in wood ;)
Wonderful instructable! The best part? You used basic tools that most wood workers have access to! It makes me crazy when I see Instructables that I'd love to make only to find that they require 3D printers and CNC machines!
I took a slightly different approach to organizing my desk but, I'm bad at remembering to take process pictures : /
