  1. Well dang! Very nicely done. To get that close to the original design isn't easy. Love the shape, style, and wishing you the best in heat treatment! Better post the final with sheath when you finish up.
  2. Thanks y'all! Joshua, funny story, it was a test drive for a folder design I had. I'm sure you still could use it for a bottle opener.
  3. Hey all, just finished up this one and wanted to share. I don't do many hollow grinds but tend to love the look, and with my first time trying domed pins, I don't think it turned out half bad! Now to the next project... a folder. Thanks for looking!
  4. Nicely done! Like the color scheme.
  5. Thanks yall! Gary, the color popped with only some Tru Oil finish. About 5 light coats. Charles, I appreciate it! They were! Just a basic triangle file. Roughed in, then fine tuned to match each other.
  6. Thank you! A trick of the light. Same on both sides. My fault for not catching the reflection in editing! Ohh leatherwork... I hate doing it.
  7. Howdy again folks. Following along the same knife pattern as my most recent post, I've gone to my comfort zone and tried to create something clean, sleek, and classy. I think I did alright! Hope yall enjoy!
  8. Good god, sir. You could signal the space station with that. Great polish and great looking knife!
  9. Mmmmmm!! I remember seeing your niello demo for that guard in Artic Fire. It's a treat to see everything all come together!
  10. Well... greetings y'all. It has been a hot minute. Made this for a friend who's about to have their first kid. Now, it was NOT my idea for the handle material and filework... I'm over it. Too flashy, even for me. I am so rusty it's not even funny, but I can still grind decent bevels I guess. Thanks for lookin y'all!
  11. Not knife related, but camera related. I ground up a hotshoe cover protector for my camera. Couldn't find one that's cool on the internet so what do ya do? Make it yourself!
  12. Clean as can be, alex. Well done dude!
  13. Exceptional. Blued is a perfect choice for the fittings and a simple but elegant handle to boot. Well done.
  14. Seems like a bad time for both. Dude lost his knife (good throw?) And the alligator has got a hell of a headache.
  15. Damn sexy. Well executed knife all around!
  16. Style indeed. Alan is right. You've come a long way in a short distance. Absolutely well done.
  17. Gotta love your inlay work! Always like seeing ya post Matthew. You're not swearin', until your caring.
  18. Incredible! Very well executed, and it can sometimes be difficult to end up close to the original design! That hamon is out of this world... wish I could see it in person.
  19. Very nice my friend! I definitely like the clean look of the blade! You're off to a great start. Look forward to seeing more folders from you! As to Alan, why haven't you yet? I'm sure you'd try to mix in some wrought and Scandinavian influence in there somewhere. =P
  20. Very nice indeed. Now that's THIN! Well done and great blade profile.
  21. Looks like our fires we had a few years back in Bastrop Texas. Twice. Keep safe!
  22. Smaller drill bit, even smaller ball of jb weld epoxy? Pull up? You're in a sticky situation. That's what I would try first. Small, thin needle nose pliers to counter twist it out? The beers are kicking in and my ideas are becoming elementary. :p If nothing works I'll keep thinking and best of luck!
  23. You're kicking ass brotha. Sure do like your knives and your design. Keep up the good work and keep posting!
