  1. Haha, I learned this the hard way the first time I made stuffed jalapenos. After hollowing out the peppers, my fingers were on fire for what seemed like the next three days, lol!
  2. Wow, that thing is goofy looking, lol. I'll be watching; best of luck!
  3. That's a nice kit. I really like the lines on the filet knife, and the cutting board/case is a cool concept. Now it just needs to be christened with the blood of a Crappie....
  4. Watched the "cutting deeper" replay of your episode the other night. Congrats on the win! It was fun watching you work. I sort of know Josh from a blade group on Facebook...seems like quite the interesting character in person...
  5. After making one of these for my wife, I decided that I wanted one as well... AS31: "The Sweeper" Steel: 1075 Steel: 1075 Handle Material: African Padauk Overall Length: 10" Blade Length: 5 & 3/8" Handle Length: 4 & 5/8" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: -3/8" from front edge of handle Weight: 9 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery
  6. I made this one for my own collection; sort of an upgraded version of the first piece I made for myself a little over a year ago. I shortened the ricasso by a half inch, and gave it a much better finish than it's predecessor. AS30: "The Dreadfang" Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Leopardwood Overall Length: 20 & 1/8" Blade Length: 14" Handle Length: 6 & 1/8" Sharpened Edge: 11 & 5/8" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 1 & 5/8" from front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb, 1 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery
  7. Awkward for you, hilarious for us! Thanks for sharing, lol
  8. Wow, thank you very much. I still have a very long way to go, but I'm pretty happy with how this one came out. Your words are much appreciated; thanks again!
  9. Thanks. I made one for myself a month or so ago. It cuts very well...
  10. With a weight of an even one pound, and a point of balance at one inch past the front edge of the grip, it feels quick and lively. The Fred Rowe Bubble Jig I recently purchased has been a huge help with my grinding.
  11. My wife and I both love the film "The Hunted" with Benicio Del Toro & Tommy Lee Jones. After watching it again recently, she asked me to make her a version of the knife Aaron Hallam (Del Toro) used in parts of the film. When I began researching the blade from the film, I found the producers used the Tom Brown Tracker. I had never heard of this knife until now; I had assumed the knife was a design made for the film. I tried not to directly copy the design, while still making the knife my wife wanted. AS29: "The Sweeper" Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Bolivian Rosewood Overa
  12. Gave this one as a gift to a friend on the SBG Sword Forum. AS28 Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Leopardwood Overall Length: 19 & 3/4" Blade Length: 13 & 1/2" Handle Length: 6 & 1/4" Sharpened Edge: 10 & 7/8" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 1" from front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery
  13. Made another sickle-sword, shipped it off to it's new home yesterday. AS27 Steel: 1075 Handle Material: African Padauk Overall Length: 30" Blade Length: 24 & 1/2" Handle Length: 5 & 1/2" Ricasso: 1 & 1/8" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 6 & 1/2" from front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb, 6 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery
  14. Since Photobucket yanked all my pics, here's the most recent photo of my girl Trixie, just kicking back. Again, she's an eight year old puppy...
  15. Looks like Photobucket got greedy. Disabled 3rd party hosting unless I upgrade to a $400 a year account. Switching to Imgur... :angry:

      Just signed up there. Much more user friendly, I like it so far. Now I'm in the LONG process of uploading all my pics again.

  16. This is going to be a wicked looking sword! I can't wait to see it finished.
  17. In the beginning of May, I started working on a pair of sickle-swords, the first swords I've attempted. Being my first run at a blade over 20" overall, I wanted to start with something simple in design. Finally finished them this weekend. I sold one, and I'm keeping one. The specs are identical for both pieces... Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Bolivian Rosewood Overall Length: 30" Blade Length: 24 & 1/2" Handle Length: 5 & 1/2" Ricasso: 1 & 1/8" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 6 & 1/2" from front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb, 7 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers
  18. That will be one hell of a retirement home. Very nice place; I'm jealous!
  19. Very nice! That blade has some crisp lines, looks great.
  20. Now THAT'S a sword. Beautiful yet menacing--exactly what a kriegsmesser / langes messer should be. Awesome work. I've always wanted a kriegsmesser / langes messer for my collection, but good ones are hard to get, and expensive. The couple of manufacturers that make good ones, Albion & Lutel, are out of my price range. Wish I could buy yours!
  21. I'm a member of a group on Facebook called "Swords, Knives, & Armor/Buy, Sell, & Trade." We've not had any issues...?
