DUNE Crysknife complete. I've already cut myself twice on it. This forged blade and hand carved handle has been an interesting one. "Organic" has often been a word used in knifemaking, as an excuse for lack of precision, faults, inconsistencies and bad symmetry. This blade had been difficult because that is exactly what it is supposed to be. "The tooth of a worm." A fictional beast with ten thousand giant teeth in it's mouth - no two the same. Curves, texture, follicles and wear from consuming whatever they did. Then to put it in the hand of a fighting native combatant of the harsh deserts. "May thy knife chip and shatter", the ritual taunt before hand to hand combat. This blade should be anything but clean, straight and pretty. I may have to put some visible chips in the edge after sharpening.

Great work - captures the organic origin very well.

I don't think you need to chip the edge, you just found a great tooth to work from.
