Heat treat for a friend

A hidden tang drop point
  A fellow bushcrafter was over to the shop last week and made sure I was sweating by the end of the day.   There was a few projects he wanted done and some parts to pick up.  He is learning to make knives and I do some heat treating for him because he doesn't have the facilities at this time.  Here are some pics of his work.  

I also made him a pack-able draw knife, his had a longer blade than the first one and we put a slight angle on the handles.   We forgot to take a picture of it.   He also helped to make his own bottle opener which was blacked in oil.
An Otzi style blade out of steel.  He was going for the flint knapped look.
