most recent knife

i finished a little hunter looking knife the other day.

 

it's going to a friend of mine who is going to military soon.

 

it's stock ground O1 full flat grind

tufnol scales with brass pins and a lanyard hole with no liner.

the sheath isn't very good, but it's functional at least.

it's a little under 7.5" long OAL with a little under 4" blade

 

sorry the pics are kinda big, photobucket is mad at my computer (as usual) and is too stupid to let me resize them.

From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

Good looking user you made there, almost thought that handle was wood till I looked at the grain. Tufnol must be similar to G-10 or micarta I take it.

thanks :D

 

tufnol is a lot like micarta, only a little finer grained, and only one color.

it smell kinda funky when you grind it, but polishes really nicely.

 

cadillac,

i use a method that this guy uses here

only i wrap the blade in packing tape (the clear stuff) and cut out the shape of my mark with an xacto knife, then peel out the inside and wipe with naptha.

 

i found if you don't get a clean cut, or don't clean the blade, the etch can look really ugly.

 

but it only takes about 30 seconds to etch it.

Nice lines on the blade.

 

Cool idea for etching your logo.

 

I used to use rub-off letters you can buy from art supply houses to etch my initials in damascus blades. Rub them on before pattern etching and then sand off afterwards. Looked impressive if you used fancy caligraphy letters.

 

Cheers,

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Handy looking knife, good job.

It's not that I would trade my lot

Or any other man's,

Nor that I will be ashamed

Of my work torn hands-

 

For I have chosen the path I tread

Knowing it would be steep,

And I will take the joys thereof

And the consequences reap.
