    I would like to thank you all for the interest. Here is where I'm at so far. Sorry for the long delay I have been having some medical issues and haven't been able to get in the shop.

    Been looking forward to seeing this one finished. Tried the links but got a message saying they were invalid.

    Thanks
    Saw that one coming. I will forgo stating my opinion on that absurdity.
    Looks like a great survival knife. Like the tip especially.

    Looking good! Hope you are doing better, I'm sure you'd rather spend more time in the shop.

    Oh, and a not so subtle suggestion: It isn't a "combat" knife, so tacticool stealth and camouflage are not desirable. Blue, orange, neon toxic green, or glow in the dark G10. Or a custom pattern of hi-vis colors! I'd like to be able to find the knife when the inevitable happens (I put it down rather than back in the sheath or drop it) during a bad situation.

    Regards,
    Dave

    Really nice looking knife. Won't the fuller just be somewhere else for dirt, blood, food to accumulate though and make it harder to keep clean?

    Thanks, I don't think it would make it much harder to clean. Reguardless, you still clean your knife before you sheath it don't you. Although I have had fellas bring knives to me for sharpening before the season with last years blood, fat and hair still on the knife.

    Apologies first of all, I'd only seen the earlier pics when I posted, my internet connection is playing up today (and senility doesn't help!) Again, really nice-looking knife. I always give my knife a wipe before re-sheathing and between tasks, but it IS harder to get the blade clean with a fuller, particularly in the dark. Just a thought anyway. Good luck with it, I'm sure it'll be very greatly appreciated and in demand.
