Cool knife.Very innovative.However,a magazine is not a "clip". Not to bust your balls,You really shouldn't call a magazine a clip if you want to sound like you know what you're talking about.They are not the same thing.
Very cool knife. The fact that it's based on the 1911 just tickles me pink.
The difference between a clip and a magazine is somewhat pedantic but "gun people" get very upset about it.
A clip is used to load the magazine. The magazine feeds the gun. The gun may have a detachable magazine (like the vast majority of pistols) or an "integral" magazine like many bolt-action rifles have. That said, all gun people know what you're talking about when you say "clip", and non-gun people know as well.
That is one of the coolest things I have ever seen!

Wow Mark. Holy Wow, that's what I'm talking about.
This one has action movie written all over it. You really gotta see about getting this knife in front of some movie people.
Do you have to kill a whole frame for each one?
Or are you having just the mag wells produced from scratch ?
then what tig welded ?
If you don't know, why would you reply?
I wouldn't call that plenty of info, that's just a tease
What interests me is the details.
What I'm wondering is are they making a whole frame and then killing it and deregistering it as destroyed,
or just running a portion of the programming to make only a magwell so it avoids the whole 80% completion rule
Canadian rules are different than US rules,
but I still expect that your BATF is keeping track of production numbers and serial numbers & manufacturers aren't going to run afoul of that.
attaching 2 different alloys - a heat treatable frame and a 154CM blade & looks like seamlessly shows real skill and I'm curious how.
The attachment is very technical, I had to jump through some hoops to get it to work. I'm getting pretty good at it, but I'm keeping the process close to my chest, for now. As you correctly surmised, TIG welding just won't work well because of the high carbon to low carbon thing, highly susceptible to cracking and drawing at the joint. The best support techs at the major welding supply places were hugely challenged by it, Miller, Harris, Welco etc.
I TIG welded a lot on the frame to plug all the holes in the original forging but not the blade-to-frame joint.
Thanks a lot Mark
Very innovative and cool but does it come in a beltfed configuration.
That is absolutely amazing! Phenomenal details....Three thumbs up!
Thanks guys, I am working on three to play with at Blade, I don't think I will be able to sell any though, I won't have the sheaths done yet.
I'm willing to bet that even without sheaths, you'll be robbed of these at Blade.
What did you say your name was Michaelangelo or was it Leonardo. Now that is thinking outside the Box! Nicely done!
Thanks a lot guys. The knives were a big hit at Blade. Thanks to everyone that came by and visited.
