    I posted one on the first page of this epic thread, but I wanted to add two more to the collection. These were both made withing the last six months with Fingal being just a 3 wk old newborn.

    There are some amazing knives in this thread!!

    Camp Bowie/Chopper has a 7 1/2" blade w/ Red Maple burl handle and brass on all pieces, The doe skin lined bubinga sheath comes complete with matching fire steel and striker.




    Fingal has an 11" blade and a Redwood burl handle w/ moose antler guard. The sheath is doe skin lined quilted Redwood with leather "upper", moose antler d-rings and Sam-studs inlaid with abalone.

    I'd say so - that is an AWESOME chopper collection. Burt's cleaver and Lin's competition cutters are particularly appealing.

    I was particularly pleased that Ron Newton was able to get third place at Branson with the G3 above pictured with the Jade colored handle. This knife was waiting on a sheath and Ron did'nt have a cutter at the time so.......we decided to test it a little. Here he's cutting a 1 inch rope suspended on a thread. This is after the 2 X 4 chop. Yep, I was kind a proud of him. Lin

    Hand-rubbed 600 grit on a 3V blade that size is the worst kind of self-flagellation... I'm really impressed! It sucks that such a wonderful steel is so brutal to finish this way - but of course, that's why it's such a great steel, right? ; )
    There is no going back. If you find that you're comfortable where you were, it's because you never really left.

    Matthew,

    I have something like 30 hours in hand rubbing the blade, that is after taking it to 16x on the grinder. Really has me rethinking make any more knives from this steel, since I perfer hand rubbed blades. I still have a 4" x 28" sheet of the 3V left, but it will sit awhile.

    I sympathize completely. Did a 4" hunter that took 3 times as long to bring to 600 grit than a 10" fighter in 1095 took to 2000 grit! Someone better appreciate all the hard work you put in, that's all I know...
