This is a 5 1/2" version - looks pretty good! LOL
Try these - Imageshack is a pain!

'Eh, eh' (elbow shove, smiles and nods head and raises eyebrows enthusiastically).
Good idea huh?
Jason, no I've never tried making my own micarta. It takes patience to layer all that material, coating each piece with epoxy and then keeping air bubbles from forming. I just buy it, and now I keep running out!
I'm finally getting down to the bottom of he list and got more steel today - 154CM. What a classic.
Tonight I finished knives for Hookick and Trapperready, and put the handles on ones for meef and another customer. I have your names written on the blades in silver sharpie, you can request I leave it there for $10 extra.
Ehh, I don't know. It's really hard to say.
I like the 6 inchers as well and if it's legal in their neck of the woods why not?
I like most of my blades a little handier and most of them are between 3 and 1/2 to 5 and 1/2 for a reason (it's easier to perform most common tasks with them), but the main reason I requested it at 5 and 1/2 (minus a tiny bit) was to abide by TX law.
Glad to hear you got the check, sorry again for the delay - medical issues prevented my going to the post office for a bit. I'm looking forward to my birthday present to myself, even if it won't be here for another little while.
Woot! PM Sent.
I haven't either, but I think if you just really soak the stuff in epoxy and put it in a press, you wouldn't get any air bubbles. I think I might try it on my next one. I gotta get some more steel though.
Ground down to how I like it, lanyard tubes recessed, taped for sandblasting:
Now they get a sheath, then I clean them up, logo them and sharpen. Easy.
Beautiful work, sir!
* I'll be receiving a Model 14 before the end of the month. It was originally ordered in 2003.
They must have the same sheathmaker as me! They probably finished the knife 2 weeks after you ordered it!
Any chance you're gonna open this one up again?
Omigosh! There it is! Right there on the screen!
It's.... it's like..... it's like seeing an ultrasound picture of your soon-to-be-born kid in the womb..... ::sigh..::
(okay, I got a bit carried away....)
Let me come up with another Group Buy real soon. I may limit it to Brown Micarta and Kydex sheaths so people actually get their knives! I have all the new steel cut up into 15 fighters so yea, I will need to move them in about 3 weeks.
that is great to hear. i'll keep on the lookout. been kicking myself for not biting last time.
