Eats sanding materials like you wouldn't believe (it's like trying to sand and shape a coarse AO sharpening block!) Handle has had multiple coats (I lost count) of tru-oil, though the wood itself will last forever without it.

    Pins are a carbon steel so the bluing can all match.

    Sheath is by Sierra, explorer model.

    $200, shipped, regular discounts always apply













    The pictures do not do this knife justice. It is incredible. Thanks Christof.

    this one is also 7/64 15N20, with a nice high scandivex. Overall about 8 1/4 inches with a 4 inch blade. Walnut scales and brass tubing pins.

    Sierra did a nice job slimming the sheath down on this one. Still strong, but not bulky.

    $170, shipped.



















    Alright, so who bought this beauty?! I need to hear about it!

    Currently this one is not an order and is slated to be available after a bit more steel wool, bluing touch up, oiling, and the sheath. Depending on sheath decisions, likely in the $220 neighborhood.

    Overall, length is 13 1/2 inches with a blade about 8 3/4 inches long. 8670M steel (think thick 15N20, sorta) 3/16 thick through the tang. Some little taper going on. Full convex ground, with a forge finish hand rubbed down and then bluing on all the steel.

    Handle is caramel micarta, with blued steel pins.

    Weight is about 22 1/2 ounces. Beefy beefy.














    do you offer this one regularly?

    I got that one. It is a hell of a chopper. I have not seen another one exactly like it in terms of specs.

    Christof has been working on the matching firesteel for about a year now but I expect it anyday now

    Sheath looks naked, friend. I could die in the woods with no fire and it would be all your fault

    Anyway, a great blade. I am sure he could make you one.

    So there.

    Okay, let's start....small.




    Two finger skinner.

    I did this for fun, out of a few leftover shop scraps. I have a 4.5 inch cutt off a bar, and some leftover brick red shadetree phenolic burlap. SO I made this, much fatter than my normal necker styles, but comfotable.

    OAL: 4 5/8

    Blade, 1 7/8, 15N20 steel, full quench and temper. flat ground (yes, I do it once in a while) - gunkote blade coating.

    Scales are red burlap "mycarta" from shadetree, with brass pins. I used brass because it can be blacked if desired.

    Sheath is an angled carry single belt loop model. It's very difficult to get a really tight fit in this type of handle with the dropped edge. I can do a beeswax dip to stiffen the leather out, but it's fine as is for "regular" carry. In the bush, hiking, or doing jobsite work, I'd suggest ordering a flap sheath.

    Price on this is $75, with $5 for shipping.

    serial number 411
