A Deba with a massive 1/4" thick handle and blade, and a cute little hankotsu! I like the rehandle work, it allows me to see and feel a wide variety of knives.

    Got them all boxed up and ready to send out. Now its on to a killer custom, a 160mm utility loosely based off an old sab. This ones in aebl and redwood/ivory and bog oak, frame handle construction, hidden tang deal
    Rehandling. That is an interesting idea. I can't see myself doing something like that in the near future, but I do like the idea of seeing a lot of knives.

    Redwood, ivory and bog oak. That sounds like a very cool project. Can't wait to see some pics of that one.

    Wow Tim. That came out very well. Formally elegant, that's my take on it. Very nice.

    Yes, the standard chisel grind front and urasuki grind on the back. This traditional combination is a real challenge from the initial grind all the way to the sharpening, but very rewarding when it all comes together right.
    I'll post some better photos in the next day or so. These first pics show a pretty rough chisel side, which is on it's way to being taken to zero. It will be very smooth in the end. I have about .002 of an inch to take off to get to zero, which on a chisel grind this long is a lot of hardened steel to remove.

    I'm using a 14 inch wheel and free hand grinding it in.

    Thanks Brock. I was a little apprehensive when I started putting it together but I think it turned out pretty well.

    Thanks timos. They wanted an all around camping, hunting, fishing blade. It is surprisingly light and feels great in the hand.

    Love this! Especially refreshing is the fact that the knives you've posted are perhaps the only ones in this thread that aren't possessed of gaudy/bling handles! The tacky bling factor is why I've never ordered a domestic "semi custom" other than a Carter apprentice knife.

    Woahh dude, shots fired! Are you calling everyones knives in this thread tacky?! That is certainly a matter of taste but whats more of an insult is "semi-custom" whats that supposed to mean? Im cracking up over here...
