    Yes it is, in the rosewood family without the side effects of rosewood. If you want Bocote let me know.

    Well, now that you're gonna be all like that, and what knot(sic), I pissed off a FB Fanboi tonight when I asked him what possessed him to spend $1400 on a half kilo of Ti - he was less than impressed with my line of questioning. To each his own, I guess.

    Note to John - don't do this ever. Titanium is rare and exotic; kinda like those pole dancers out in the oil patch...just leave 'em where ya found 'em.

    He must have sat in front of his grinder for a couple weeks to make that, Mecha could probably get 2 or 3 swords out of that piece of Ti. lol

    Ha! I think that was the look I had on my face when I saw that.

    Bubbles reminds me of what my uncle would look like if he dressed up like a nerd for halloween. I've only seen a few episodes of that show, but it's pretty funny.

    They should call that "Fred Flinstoning"?

    I think Mecha could make a battle axe out of that, thats a chunk!

    Looks like there is some kinda dingle berry hanging off the lanyard, a Ti fire steel perchance? A worry bead, an anal bead, or maybe it really is just a dingle berry...

    Let's start with this. I put letters and numbers so we can play it like battleship if theres a specific spot you want to point out for a change. Pick that apart and let me know.

    1/16" pins
    Edge is 2.75"

    I can see it.

    I think I heard something about making a fresh batch of cookies if images aren't showing properly. Give it a try. I like white chocolate/macadamia nut.

    For what it's worth I like my handles a little on the thicker side now days and I don't like a lot of taper. I bought a Dan Graves knife not long ago and it tapers a lot and feels like it wants to slip out of my hand and pull the blade though my hand. Try dropping the bottom handle line down a little bit to line C just behind the ricasso and see how that looks.

    More like this Scott? I agree, a little thin necked at first. I need to contour E27 a little.

    I agree Scott, something wasn't looking right and I couldn't figure it out I think you found it.

    Agreed! Old broken hands just don't close as well, the larger grip might fit better. Looks good, John!

    I keep trying to find a cowbell stamp. It would be cool to stamp a tiny bell on the ricasso.
    Rest in peace Maniacal Pete and DougC. You were the best of us and will not be forgotten.

    Thong hole - optional.
    Finger indent - nope.
    Palm swell - no. Palm wood - maybe .
    Blender attachment - hmmm...


    It needs a picatinny rail on top, a biometric safety and heated slabs. Oh, and a hole in the blade to attach a hex nut with a zip tie... and yes, a blender attachment. And a shrubbery. Not too tall...
