    Greetings all,


    I will be posting pictures/specs/plans for each knife I currently have in my design/finishing room. These will be available for commission, and I will be open to suggestions for things like handle materials, edge geometry, etc.

    This is .110 thick 52100. I plan to FFG this one to about .030 and then convex to near zero. Clearly wont be for prying or lateral pressure, but will clear brush/chop very well.
    Handle Material TBD. Please contact me if interested.

    -Still available

    These are all 1095 thick .094
    The edge geometry the customer wants will really determine what use these will be destined for. The top two look like pretty good field knives to me , while the bottom three could lean more to kitchen utility knives, or maybe food prep in the field/camp.

    This blade is extreme thin, FFG to .005 and then hand sanded to a zero edge...so a very light convexing. Ghost tip all the way ..
    This blade and finish I will call ghost cloud.

    Have a few of these in s5VN available to build, pick your own handle. This one is stabilized crotch walnut. Full distal taper, .08 thick spine. Ground to zero and lightly convexed. stropped on a 10K stone. Love the bite of that S35VN edge.

    Customer sent me this pic the other day:
