    As simple as that Jared, Nickel Silver, 1/2" long maybe around 1/8" wide, peened. Like a functional Shield. Just a goofy idea that popped in my head, thought it might look sleek with Blackwood.

    You've been on a roll with some nice blades lately, and I'm not goin anywhere.....but then again........ maybe these ARE the droids you're looking for....(waving hand slowly)

    So I was thinking, (which is dangerous even when not in a Halloween candy induced coma) a couple of guys have shown maybe some interest in these knives.

    Here's what I would hate to see happen: I finish these knives and put them up in a sales thread (at the weird hours I usually do things) and you guys that watched the thread and tolerate my madness in this subforum miss out on a chance to get one. So I have a question:

    Is there a way, that I can first offer them to our dysfunctional family here when they are completed?

    This is just an idea off the top of my Halloween candy filled head. If it sounds like it would be a mess, let me know.

    What about a "Dibs" system. You guys can call Dibs at some point in a thread. When they are completed, you'd have first crack at it. That would not mean that you were obligated, just have a chance at it before it became available to people outside our dysfunctional family.

    Or would it be easier just to do a first come, first serve when the knives are completed and post them for sale at the end of this thread? Let me know what you think.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to presume that these will sell quick, or even sell for that matter, but if there's something I can do to get those of us that hear the cowbell clang to have first crack at them, then I'm all ears.

    One propeller in the middle and three holes where the guns go on each side. Obviously, it's a P40 Tiger Shark.

    I guess the new knife will be named Tiger Shark? Or perhaps, Corsair?

    What I think I'm gonna do is finish out this one with the shield, pin, key, thingamabob first and see how it goes. The rest were going to have regular pins, but if this comes out nice, isnt a complete and total pain in the arse, and everyone likes it, we can do it on the rest and make it a model. You guys name it and we'll go from there. "Corsair" gets my vote

    Chris posted a Tiger Shark above the F4u, it might not have loaded.

    I think Tiger Shark was just the name of certain models of P40. The real name was the Warhawk (which wouldn't make a very good name for a knife that isn't a 'hawk ).

    Corsair gets my vote. It's always been my favorite warbird.

    Dance girl, dance.

    Really? The Corsair?

    I think we should take this outside (purple) and settle it.

    We'll see how this works out, the key, pin, shield (?) weighs less than a 1/4" pin of equal length. It will have one 3/32" pin in the rear, and one up front. If you can picture that in Blackwood, tell me what you think. All Nickel Silver by the way.

    The small hole in the scallop at the bottom of the pic is the pin hole, the other two are just for an epoxy bridge.

    I vote for "Corsair" as the model name too. Just because.

    I like that. Kinda like a soft "I'll take it.", but without all the commitment. Good idea actually.

    I really hope your idea for that center pin works, because I think that would be pretty darned cool!

    Now THAT'S whatcha call a multiquote! Is that guy trying to take a dump?

    In my head, the pin works out and looks good, but it's a strange place up there.

    I got the scales cut out, the grain is looking good so far. Fitting the pin shouldn't be too much of a pain, just tedious, bare with me.
