What's everyone working one?


I hope to. If I can get all the bugs worked out. Man there is a lot of fitting.

My JS preformance test knives after a rough grind

Here we go. This is the one that I had on my bench.

Rusty give us some updates as you go along. My only advice grind them thin.

Here's what I'm starting the New Year with. I'm almost out of forged blades, but this should keep me busy for awhile.

Hey Dave,

Maybe you can get all of them done and bring them to our Shop Tour on January 22nd!

Congrats' on the article in The March 2011 Blade Magazine!!! I always knew that you were someone who needed watching! :lol:

Only 25, I must of lost one some where. I came up with 26 when I walked around the shop this morning. The things are multiplying faster than I can get them done.


Man that W pattern blade is outstanding but I can't get around the guard and butt cap. WOW!!!

WOW! Steve,

That knife is a knock out. You really outdid yourself on that one.
But for all that I think your WIP/Tutorial page is at least as great a piece of work. Absolutely dynamite layout and photos. We can all use your page as a school. Thanks.
Here's one from the table.
