Heres the collaboration knife David of Great Lakes Waterjet and I did.It is d2 1/4".David did the profile and initial bevels on his waterjet,leaving me with about .060 to remove.I then drilled and tapped her for holes,heat treated it and put a handle on it.I then added LED's,one shining forward and three under the scales.I also added a firefighters shield that I did using files and added a red bicycle like reflector to.I replaced the fragile LED switch with a robust one and hid the electronics/batteries,switches,etc under the scales.Scales as well as the sheath is orange G-10.There is also glow in the dark material between the four g-10 layers so it will glow in the dark.David and I did this for his wife's cousin who is a firefighter whom successfully beat cancer.It was a fun projec

McAhron,

 

Sounds like a fun project indeed. Wher do you get the glow in the dark material? Neat stuff ~Herb

Thanks Herb.I used glow in the dark sticker material and paint I got at the local art store.You can order sheets of GID material in various thicknesses but I was unable to find anyone selling less than a 4x8 foot sheet.

I have to be honest with you, it is butt-ugly to the point of retinal burn, but it looks very, very useful none the less, and well built.

Thanks everyone.For the record GeZell's comments didnt bother me as everyone has a right to their opinion.

MassArtTom, I would have chose the seat cutter to be different also.This blade is so thick the cutter binds.I would have milled a recess to accept a replaceable razor blade if it was up to me.

Do you by any chance have a pic of it lit up? I think that's an interesting piece, it looks perfect for the job.

Good Morning McAhron,

 

My brother and I are both firefighters and I

was wondering how much you would be willing

to sell this or a similar piece for. I understand

if you want to withhold that info on the forum.

My e-mail is josephgabri@yahoo.com and I

would appreciate any info you have for me.

 

Thanks,

Joe

Joe I sent a personal e-mail to you.

Michael,unfortunately I dont have any other pics.David was supposed to do some quality pics when he recieved it but his camera took a dump.I was dissapointed because the finish work looks so much nicer in person.

Thanks guys!
