    The blade is done... well, mostly. Still need to make a sheath.

    L-6 (RDS) from Aldo
    .280" thick
    15.75" OA length
    9.5" Cutting edge
    6" Handle
    Shallow convex, almost flat ground.
    Cold chisel tip
    Sharpened "choil" notch for striking ferro rods, scraping arrow shafts, etc
    Hardened pommel plate(5160) for bashing stuff or batoning the knife "chisel-style" using the tip geometry
    Handle is leather backed, hemp wrapped and epoxy soaked.

    That is incredible Rick. I love the chisel tip. Nice touch.
    Rest in peace Maniacal Pete. I wish I could have done more.

    Hi all!!
    Well SAMSON is finished and was delivered to his new owner Chris last night, i didnt realize that for Chris this has been 2 years in the making..meaning he originally drew this up and wound up sidelining it until he ran into me, and i will say i was excited when i saw his design! For me there was alot of build challenges, but in the end everything fit up properly and can be takin down and remounted indefinitely, well enough yappin heres some pics..



    backside..

    scale shot..

    prefinish

    Well hope enjoy the pics questions and comments welcome

    One of my mentors owned a knife that looked a lot like that. Great work Rick.

    Love your style Rick from the tip to the pommel plate. I've got one of your neckers but the leaf blade is calling me. When you get done with the testing shoot me a pm on this one please and good luck.
    Thanks,

    Doug

    Gentlemen,

    These are some fantastic knives. I've only seen one I wouldn't necessarily buy assuming available cash was not a problem but there isn't a one I'd turn down as a gift. Wonderful work and keep it up!

    These blades look amazing guys! Really excellent work!
    Have we reached the deadline on this? If so mine's done...just waiting on sheath material. If not, I may build something else.

    Roll call!

    Can everyone still participating in this chime in here and say when they will be ready.

    I need to start planning a trip for part of the testing.

    I'm looking at the deadline to be in about two more weeks.

    Greg, are you making another one for testing?

    You did an amazing job on Samson. Very unique.

    I'll be ready in a week or less either way. Whether I decide to submit what I built or build something else.

    Seeing as my knife is "No Frills" it is getting kydex rather than leather. I'll get on it.....
