    I recently finished up this one in super tough and wear resistant CPM-3V steel. The scales are made from the very hard to find Antique Ivory Micarta with blue G10 liners. I flared the stainless tube hardware for a super durable mechanical connection on top of the already strong West System epoxy's bond.

    My wife Sara made the leather sheath, it is made with heavy duty welt construction and is about as tough and streamlined as it gets.

    I usually don't use liners but these new G10 ones are great, they are super tough just like the rest of the knife. I liked them so much I glued up some more lined scales for later.

    I am really excited to use the CPM-3V steel, it is almost as tough as S7 and the edge holding is just off the charts... insane! I hadn't used it before because it is known as being very tough to finish. It was very tough and used more belts than usual but for steel this great it was well worth the effort! Look out for more CPM-3V in the future.

    This one is already spoken for.

    Thanks for checking out my work! :D

    Very, very nice knife. It's really something to watch, each knife seems to get better.... You can see the evolution.

    Mrstang if you score one you're gonna shit. This thing is the sharpest knife I've seen but also thick and beefy with great ethos. I can't put it down.

    Thanks MrStang for your interest in my work! I'm going to get back at you tomorrow when I am more coherent, it is 9:35 here and I have not been out the shop for long yet.

    Sharp and beefy, nice to hear because that is what I am after! Thanks again for the excellent photos Sir!

    Thanks! My wife made the sheath, I'm going to tell her... she will be very happy to hear that.
