Bill T

murphda2
09-01-2011, 05:17 PM
Interesting, who has dibs on the proto, or is it too early to ask to be that guy?

Les George
09-01-2011, 05:47 PM
Cuz of how close the lanyard hole is to the edge, I doubt this one will go any further

murphda2
09-01-2011, 05:57 PM
I've always wanted to grow up and own a Les George "Prototype".

Les George
09-01-2011, 06:25 PM
Seems like you may have your horse behind the cart brother.... ;)

murphda2
09-01-2011, 06:28 PM

Les George

Its an Awesome feeling! Don't let anyone tell you anything different! Only one thing....it's addictive!

Looking great Les! I'll be keeping an eye out or more pics! Perfect size from the looks, IMO!

Grunt Out!

Looks great, Les! Definitely interested to see how this project unfolds. For scales, I am always a fan of Foliage or Green G-10. Barbwire Micarta looks cool, as well.

Les George
09-09-2011, 03:59 PM
Glad to see all you Texicans round here! :)

Les George
09-17-2011, 02:04 PM
Naw, just watch here... When these are ready, they are gonna be ready all at once, so there will be plenty to go round!

Thanks!

Les George

Eh... Les, why does it say PM 3?

I dont know, it's 3V... I have noticed for some reason they dont always write the "C" into CPM... I guess its an abbreviated acronym... :D

John Barker

That's a lot of steel Les! What kind of scales are you putting on these?

Les George
09-19-2011, 10:35 AM
With out scales at first but with optional g10 scales to follow

Les George
09-21-2011, 05:05 AM
The steel is at the waterjet cutter and should be done later this week. :)

Looks like the "Quality Control Inspector" is approving of the work thus far. You better get to work and keep the inspector happy.

franklin

In all honesty I have no doubt he was thinking, "I wonder if I can eat this?" That's pretty much #1 on his mind at all times.... :)

This is not simple... see if this pic is more relevant

Dang Les, by looking at the background of this pic it appears you have ALOT of work ahead of you.

Any word on this project Boss? Just checking in!

Grunt Out!

Les George

Heat treat complete! On the way to the grinder!

Had the grinder send one ahead, the rest to follow in a few days. This one will go off to the sheath maker tomorrow and the rest will go to laser engraving soon as they get here. Then off to Armaloy or DLC (some to each)

murphda2
12-04-2011, 06:19 PM
Looks great Les! Look forward to seeing the finished project. Save me one of the first ones!!!

Frstr8
12-04-2011, 06:19 PM
Will they be available in stonewashed finish?

Les George
12-05-2011, 09:11 AM
Will they be available in stonewashed finish?

I was planning on coating most of them, but I will probably do some of them bare stone wash.

Anyone prefer that?

Trousil
12-05-2011, 10:34 AM
Are they staying skeletons? If so, a stone wash to get a para wrap would be great. Coat might add a bit more to the grip. Unless you are gonna coat one in purple... that way I could get my purple George knife out of the way for my collection.

Frstr8
12-05-2011, 11:11 AM
I vote for stone wash!

arjung
12-06-2011, 01:56 PM
Oh that looks very cool!

Les George
12-06-2011, 02:21 PM
They are gonna stay Skeletons, but I am gonna machine some scales later on as an optional add on.

I'll leave some bare! :)

murphda2
12-06-2011, 07:19 PM
I think stonewashed would look great. I may have to get one of each.

Darklight
12-08-2011, 03:23 PM
Skeletton and stonewash finish for me too !
Those are looking neat Les !

Les, that's me right there... the brown dog in the picture. Throw me a bone!

I'll definitely be tuning. Mahalo!!

Les George

OK, here is the 2nd chapter to the VECP story. Just like the folders, I had the blades CNC flat ground.

These are CPM 3V blades with an Armoloy Hard Chrome Coating.

More Armoloy info here - http://www.armoloy-tx.com/Benefits/

I wanted to make a small fixed blade that could really take a beat down and I think that I got it here, 3/16 thick blade 3V steel @ 60 Rc.

Kydex sheath is drilled for a Tech-Loc (not included). Ken Brock made all the kydex for this project and they turned out great!

Now for the pics! http://usualsuspect.net/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif

http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx324/georgeknives/vecp%20fixed%20blade/IMG_9866.jpg

I envisioned this as a knife that could be carried on a vest, behind something else, like a mag pouch.

http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx324/georgeknives/vecp%20fixed%20blade/IMG_9860.jpg

http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx324/georgeknives/vecp%20fixed%20blade/IMG_9861.jpg

One thing that I did not try to make was a safe queen here, you can see here the rub marks in the hard chrome from the kydex. Just rubs, not rubbed all the way through... Just a heads up.

http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx324/georgeknives/vecp%20fixed%20blade/IMG_9859.jpg

Get one and use the hell out of it! http://usualsuspect.net/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif

http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx324/georgeknives/vecp%20fixed%20blade/IMG_9855.jpg

http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx324/georgeknives/vecp%20fixed%20blade/IMG_9852.jpg

They are $160 plus $10 shipping in the USA, international available at buyers risk, USPS Priority International should be about $17.

I have a bunch available right now and a bunch more just waiting for kydex, so if you want one, drop the paypal to gtasteel@yahoo.com and I will get it on the way the next day.

I'll keep the availability updated in this thread.
