    Been too quiet hare, so I thought I would post what I`ve been working on this week.

    First up are the 5 Hawks I`m working on.

    Next are a pair of Nessmuks. These are for the same customer I sent the black handle CB Neckmuk to about a week ago. This CB Neckmuk is 3/16" thick. The other one is a larger version of the Neckmuk, with a 5" blade. It is 1/4" thick. These will be very interesting when they are done, check back in about a week and you will see what I am talking about. I`m going to be offering the larger Nessmuk in 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4" versions.

    So how are the hawks coming along?

    Im looking forward to pitures of the large Neckmuk. Sounds like it will be one hefty blade.

    Heat treated today. I`ll start cleaning them up Friday, and putting handles on. Be making sheaths next week. Then I`ve got to get a second mortgage to pay for shipping them!

    John, those two muks look nice! Question, it sure looks like they have sabergrinds on them, are you doing those now?

    No, I just never grind all the way before heat treat. I am doing flat grinds now, that All Purpose is 3/16" thick with a flat grind. I am working on my saber grinds to perfect them.

    Nothing new on those except they have been heat treated. I have to finish the hawks by Monday, then there will be some more progress on these.
