    Last class.

    G'day guys,

    the last class of 2017 is certainly one to remember.
    Back in India, this young lady could not find a knife maker to teach her the art of knife making. Now that she is studying in Australia, she saved money for months and came up to my shop to make her first knife.

    She knew exactly what she wanted, and it was very audacious to say the least: a compound grind with a false edge and free hand etching.
    We gave it a shot, she listened carefully, picked up skills quickly and made an awesome knife.
    She had been waiting for years for that moment, and she had tears in her eyes when she looked at what she'd made.

    That was a beautiful way to finish the year.

    Just off topic, is that an alien outside in the background?
