    OK now, Rolf. Don't be a tease!!

    When that comes to you, I hope we get some pics. Is that one coming from SEALS, the guy that has done so much good work on soddies here?

    Thanks guys. A Soddie is still a Soddie, yes?

    Standby, I will grab a picture of the plans. It's just a drawing, but it will give you an idea.

    Here you go. Rolf's soddie. Linerless G10, 3/32" A2 steel. Rolf, did we decide on brass or nickel silver hardware?

    I'm making one for myself at 80% of the size of Rolf's with brass liners and hardware. Cheap to make, hard to break.

    Long Island Blue-points, or some Chincoteagues, would be my preference.
    Seriously... out of my price range, and low on my want-list. I'll stick with some vintage bone and CV for half the price.

    Always looking for Italian stilettos. Send me a PM if you've got one that needs a new home!

    lol! ^
    Would guys pay more for a Micarta handled Sodbuster??
    Thanks for the drawing, Brian. Let's go with nickel-silver.

  6. Lycosa, Are you Dutch? A friend of mine is named "Rolf" and I haven't seen the name elsewhere.

    Case's carbon fiber sodbuster is 1/4 cheaper at some dealers but it's still pricey. ...It's linerless and I wonder how the pivot will hold up...Anyone have experience with linerless knives?

    sup- My mom was from Regensburg Germany so she slapped that name on me.
    I have had zero trouble with my linerless Bucklite and my Black Bear Knives Metro Razor.

  8. Rolf is a great guy to share a name with. Thank you for the info on the linerless knives. I'm looking forward to seeing that finished sodbuster... I wonder if GEC will make a red glow in the dark sodbuster for Christmas... for the Rudolph fans.

    Red, green, yellow, and blue... -string 'em together by their lanyard holes and you'll have the best decorated house on the street this year!

  11. zippo, green is good too. I think Lycosa likes red... not sure about the pink glow though.

    That's the best idea that I've heard today... I knew I was paying taxes to the government for a good reason.

    I would say more like making a sow's ear out of silk. Just a waste of good silk.
    There never was or will be a Soddie worth $100 to me. I don't care what its made of*.

    lol! Thanks guys.
    Mom wanted to name me Manfred first.
    Yep, $100. is a tad too much for a Sodbuster.

  14. The name "Rolf" actually seems quite normal to me... he's one of my best friends. But he's the only Rolf that I've met before now. I like the name Rolf a lot better than Manfred... I know a German guy named "Helmet"... By the way, the spelling of my name is also imported. J a k o b... though I usually go by "Jake"

    Personally, I'd rather send a queen sodbuster made of d-2 to one of the many guys out there who will tweek and pimp them out with whatever you want. Price is about the same.

    I've seen those advertised, but at $12K, they were a bit out of my price range. The 50,000 pound load rating was interesting, though.

    Jake- I like Jakob better.
    I'm hoping that my Red Soddie from Brian will be my last one. It should be.

    I'll bet it won't be your last....
    Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts .....?

    I bet you mean the name "Helmuth" or "Helmut" - but Helmet is no german name

    There are many names over here in good ol' Germany that might sound a little strange to english mothertongues ...
