San-Mai Hunter

You could say this is my contribution to the Cold Steel shenanigans? :rolleyes:

 

Anywho, I'm a little rusty in the fit and finish department (but not by much!). That pin just didn't want to be center on the handle. Some of you may recognize the blade from a different post. I had problems with the 416 doing some weird stuff but at least it didn't effect the core steel at least. Time to experiment with something else.

 

Hope you guys like it!

 

Specs:

  • 416/1084 steel
  • 8 1/2" overall
  • Eucalyptus (I think??) and Damascus fittings

I love everything about it. Everything goes together so well, and you have an awesome eye for knowing what looks great together. Excellent work Austin! (and a nice thumb in the eye to garbage Cold Steel)

Now thats a knife only a mother could love! LOL I'm afraid I don't see the flaws there Austin. Did you do the sheath too? It's real perty . And what did I miss with the cold steel thing? You gonna cut a pig in two with it on a video?

What you missed on the Cold Steel thing is that they are trying to claim the san mai is a registered trademark of the company and have issued some cease and desist letters to some makers for using it.

 

Before I forget it, that's a danged nice knife.

Thanks guys! I actually really like this one quite a bit, and worthy for your eyes.

 

Hoy, the flaws are small, but would be noticeable to y'all in person (small scratches from cleaning epoxy away from the guard with paper towels, pin not being centered). :) Yes, I did the sheath as well! Check out the fiery beards section of this forum, there's two threads started by Dave about the whole issue with cold steel.
