What is the size of this model? I can not find it listed on your web page. I saw one up for sale and while I was looking around for info on it, the sucker was snatched up.

So... I have no idea what kinda machine that is.. but it looks big. :1:

Now, since I can't tell what is going on, I am going to fill that void and hope I see a frame lock ESR with purple burl and a black or gray G10 bolster. Stop looking at me like that Les... a guy can dream. :9:

Actually, an honest question. You planning on finishing these with your designed G10 on the display side? I was shocked at how functional that handle was. Always liked the look of it.

these are gonna be all titanium frame locks. orange pealed titanium, but like my EDC Rockeye, but smaller...


That machine is a Lathe and we're turning some big machine parts for one of Chad Nichols steel smashing machines...

Nice damascus. Gonna have to put in some OT at work and set the email alerts on. I do hope you got my email in regards to getting on the mailing list.

So uh... why is there a hole at the blade tip? I get that it goes away, just kinda wondering the purpose.

The tab at the front is so I can bolt the blanks down to machine the profiles.

Now I grind the tabs off, surface grind all the blanks, debur them and they will be ready for heat treat. I am trying to get the last heat treat batch for the year out the door this month yet.

Once they get back, I can then hand fit all the parts, grind the bevels, contour the titanium and maybe send some of the stainless ones to DLC coating...

Who knows when these will actually get done, I am just front loading as much prep work as I can right now.


Yeah I did get your e mail, I am way behind on e mails right now, but I am not forgetting anyone! :)

Yeah, you are on knife maker time, AND island time. Double whammy!

After sitting for weeks on a tarmac, one learns the zen of patience.

Thank you for showing the pictures. I love WIP's.

I didn't know you kicked it around these parts. Bro, I swear I am getting in line an hour earlier next year if I know you are gonna be there.
