Sorry, I'm a big Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan and just watched a DVD of "Super Agent Super Dragon", a sucky James Bond rip-off made hilarious by the crew of the "Satellite of Love". But I digress. :D

Here's a Super Camp ordered after my first one was in Blade, it's the 3rd to go out. This giraffe bone is really weird stuff - half the time all the color and cracks disappear when you grind it!

7" blade, false edge on top, 12" overall
1/4" D2, HT by Bos
1/8" mosaic pins, 1/4" SS lanyard tube

This is the biggest, heaviest knife I make. :)

Here's a pic of the first 2 I sent out, I found these hard to duplicate from the first one but they have looked pretty good when done. There's 3 Fighters, 3 Landsharks and then the first 2 Super Camps.

Now you know the real reason I put lanyard tubes in these - I have no idea if anyone uses them but they're to hang the knives on nails when I'm done!

Those Landsharks are incredibly beautiful.

I'm assuming the Landshark is your own original design? Nicely done.

The Landshark was my toughest design, as I'll only make designs I come up with but every hunter I made wound up looking like a Loveless. Not a bad thing but not very original either. So I kept trying different things and while I use the Loveless influence on the blade (although a but shorter than his) I finally came up with my own handle design that worked. Looks like a shark, used on land. Great SNL skit, the Landshark. :)

Whoa!
That is a very nice knife! It is big too!

Yes I know lanyard holes keep nails company, and I remember the old SNL and Landshark.

If you do a "Puppy Upper-Puppy Downer" pattern, I am going laugh myself into tears.

$omebody's gonna have to remind me what the Land $hark $ells for.

I may have an urge to $hell out $ome money on one of those.

I think I $aw the price somewhere, but can't remember just now.

Anyone?

I have 2 ATS-34 Land$hark blanks that I could complete in what micarta, G10 or wood I have for $225 plus whatever kind of sheath you want. Kydex or leather, $45. Ironwood, giraffe bone or stag $100 more.

That blue/red G10 in the pic has no home - a guy ordered it then had all kinds of medical issues. It's ready for a $heath! :)

Shevrock, I do stock removal from steel bars.

I realized last night the name was "Secret Agent" but figured no one would know the difference. LOL
