I made a knife!

Started from an old metal box and a stick. The stick is found from a trip to the mountains I took with my friend, and the knife itself is gonna be her birthday present.

The knifemakers and skilled/knowledgeable people here will be disappointed to learn that the metal was not heat treated, so the knife isn’t hardened and will lose its edge soon. I will try to get access to a torch for my next one!

But please give me a little bit of a break because this is my first attempt at such a thing, almost my first time holding an angle grinder at all. FForst time polishing anything, too and man, the results are so satisfying! I just enjoyed working on it, and it’ll just be a conversation piece more than a functional object... Hope you guys like it. Have you made something similar? Show me!
