    In case any of you are thinking about making your own chili paste, I would recommend making use of latex gloves, safety glasses, long sleeved shirt and maybe even a face shield.  I did the gloves and safety glasses this time, next batch will have me all kitted up.

    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. 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.... ;)

  3. After making one of these for my wife, I decided that I wanted one as well...

  4. 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.

    Steel: 1075
    Handle Material: Leopardwood
    Overall Length: 20 & 1/8"

    Sharpened Edge: 11 & 5/8"
    Tang Thickness: 3/16"
    POB: 1 & 5/8" from front edge of handle

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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...

  10. 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! ;)
