    These are all finishing up nicely. Looking forward to seeing the destruction they will bring.

    I am still in. Just finished reworking the handle, have a little more grinding to finish the blade, and have a sheath to make. I believe I can be ready to ship by end of the week. If it needs to be sooner post it up here and I can make it happen. Looking forward to this mass of carnage.

    When will we find out where to ship and when.

    I still need to build the scabbard and give it its final edge, but that's it. Been moving shop and waiting on power to get hooked up or I could have had it done some time back. Lots of good looking entries!

    Mine could be ready to go, but if I have time I want to refinish part of the blade. To me this is a HUGE knife but it might end up the smallest of the bunch. That's an eze-lap sharpener above the firesteel. Lots and lots of first for me on this build.

    Mine is done

    Mine is ready to go. Here are some pics and specs.

    S7 steel at 57Rc with etched/ antiqued finish.
    16 1/2" OAL
    8 1/2" cutting edge. 8" handle
    2 5/8" spike
    Blade width is 1 1/2" at handle and measures 7" across the head
    Thickness is 5/16"+ and weighs 3.3lbs/ 4.5lbs with sheath system
    It is set up to ride on a drop leg molle platform but has a tek-lok so can be taken off and put on a pack or whatever.
