• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

So the other day I was reminiscing about some past knives I’ve owned and went out to the shop to play 😎 I started out with some ideas of making something Busseish but by the time I was done with the blank, I had a little RTAK in there too 👍 This is a pretty cool one of a kind Chopper in 1/4in 5160. I used green canvas Micarta for scales and they are attached with epoxy and flared stainless steel tube fasteners. The mix makes for a very fun and useful Chopper! It’s 16 5/8in overall with an 11 1/16in blade tip to handle.
