We all started somewhere. If you are brave enough, post a photo of your "first" metalworks. The first tongs you made, your first knife, the first forge you built, etc.

Here are some photos of the first knife I made. My Brother had asked for a deer skinning knife and I made it from some OCS (Old Chevy Spring). I based it on a Knives of Alaska skinner. You can tell I really missed that mark, but it turned out OK in that it has skinned many deer. I made the knife in April of 2007. To give the knife more sentimental value, I made the scales from some mesquite out of his back yard.
