  1. AS40, 41, & 42: The Sierra Sidekick These were sitting on the bench for a while half finished, as the devastating loss of my beloved labrador Trixie shut me down for a while. But, as she always stopped by my bench to check my progress throughout my projects, I figured she'd want me to get off my tookus and finish them... I'd think these would make a good knife to carry when out for a deep woods hike. All three came in at 11" overall, and weigh in at 14 oz each. I used 1/4" 1075 barstock, made by stock removal. The handles are made from Wenge, Bubinga, and Padauk. As always, the blades were heat treated by my friend Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery.
  2. Thank you Clifford. As the song stated, she was the world... Tom, Izzy is beautiful. She looks like an absolute sweetheart; you can really see the love in her eyes. It tickled what's left of my heart to hear of her bond with the baby schnauzer.
  3. Took me a week to edit this down, and it was hard at times. If you have 4 & 1/2 minutes to spare, here's a peek at the beautiful life my sweet Trixie led...
  4. Thanks guys. As the wife & I don't have kids, we lost our child here. I still can't believe she's gone. I have to try to take comfort in knowing that she had a beautiful life in her ten short years. She was given all the love we had, and she gave it right back, tenfold at that. Clifford, they most certainly are our children. The photos of you with your babies is a testament to that!
  5. Beautiful. Your work is always so precise; the photos look like they came out of a catalog. Awesome!
  6. My heart is broken. On Sunday morning, just the day before her tenth birthday, my sweet Trixie crossed the Rainbow Bridge after a brief yet courageous battle with cancer.
  7. I used very salty water...I didn't go with a certain ratio or the like. Here's a link to the power supply I use: Power Supply You'll need to get the leads and the alligator clips as well. Any electronics store should have these items. Cheers!
  8. That's awesome. The sheath is especially nice!
  9. Thank you! I love Khopesh, and those certainly influenced the design. As a stock removal only guy, I'm limited to how much curve I can put on a blade, so, there it is...
  10. Now she's finished...the exterior at least. I was waiting for my new license plates, took 12 weeks.
  11. Thanks! I used Wenge for the handle.
  12. After taking the summer off to restore my vehicle, I finally finished a piece. Envisioned to be the blade of a high-desert drifter, this piece makes me think of a scorpion's tail. I plan on keeping and, doing some cutting with this one. So, instead of my usual 1200 grit low-mirror polish, I polished it to just a 400 grit satin finish. Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Wenge Overall Length: 24 & 3/4" Blade Length: 18 & 3/4" Handle Length: 6" Tang Thickness: 1/4" POB: 3 & 1/2" past front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb, 9 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery
  13. Thanks Josh. The second two photos were taken just a month after the paint job, at good old Pyramid Lake in the Nevada high desert. I'd say her tough wheeling days are over; I'm too paranoid about scuffing her up now, lol. I'll still make my annual runs to the high desert, but no rock crawling. We'll refer to her now as an "off-road capable street-cruiser."
