    Greetings fellow knifeknuts and happy Fathers Day!

    Hee Hee!! It's a dry hell Imeanheat. I've been here since 1982 so we do get acclimated somewhat, still brutal though. I'm from the high desert of SE Oregon where cold was normal in winter but my blood is so thin now that 45/50 is shivering cold. But our snowbirds wear shorts and t's with...

    Took a time out from my 115 degree Tempe AZ workshop to photo this new Kaibab Kommando (2 of 2). It's 80CRV2 with leather and Ironwood, G10 spacers and sculpted steel pommel. I still need to finesse the front of the block flush to the bolster, finish handle polishing and sharpen.

    Chopper in 80CRV2 and Mesquite

    Hi Grady, thanks for that, it is very comfortable in my hand. I've been swinging it a lot (just foolin' about though, not hitten' anything. Don't want to scratch up the merchandise!)

    Chopper in 80CRV2 and Mesquite

    Hi Craig, yes there's a back story. A couple of years ago I saw some tree trimmers thinning out a large mesquite in Phoenix AZ and grabbed a bunch. I got a bunch of Olive too! This is from a 3-4" limb so my guess is the thinner pieces are lighter than the usual reddish. There's a wide variety of...

    Chopper in 80CRV2 and Mesquite

    Greetings all! Here’s a new medium sized chopper for your consideration, easier than a real behemoth to carry but it’ll get the job done. Steel is .195” x 1 1/2” in 80CRV2 with professional HT at 60/61. Hand sanded to 600 grit for a satin finish. The robust edge was a tad under .15” before...

    Well I finally finished another small chopper, 80CRV2 and Mesquite/copper. Only about 9.5" OAL so it's easy to carry yet it will still get the job done. I haven't carved my Egyptian Lion in a while either.

    Here's my latest try, a custom order in NitroV with padauk scales, acrylic + G10 spacers and this one has a very subtle leaf shape that I like. Mostly I've use straight wood with little embellishment to stay traditional but the customer saw a Nessmuk of mine done this way and wanted it. It...
