Been playing with a new design for police rescue. Will be from cryo treated 4.8mm NitroV so plenty stout and with the low saber grind will leave a good edge. The glass breaker behind the handle is square to the centerline so will be a platform to hammer against if the need is to drive the tip into a vehicle pannel and I may even look at kydex for the sheath as the micarta handle will be another first with textured/scalloped finish.

I really like this!
I work Dispatch for a local Sheriff's Office and I've had a few requests for knives.  Most of them have been geared towards being a last ditch resort in a fight, but I like the idea of the rescue knife!  I can't wait to see it all done!

Have got the first one ready to foil wrap and heat treat but will wait till I get more liquid nitrogen before I go ahead with that.

Thanks for putting that together Garry.  I'm looking forward to the next installment.  I really like your grinder and grinding jig.  Relatively simple, yet extremely effective!

Garry,

 

As I try to get more efficient and keep things moving at a more productive pace, I find your work very inspirational.

 

I still enjoy the one-off "create as you go" pieces, but the multiple/identicals is a whole different discipline. 

 

Thanks for taking the time to share.

If we make everything we can there is more funds for the things we cant make and in reality the grinder is a simple make that most anyone can do.
