    Yup, its here and it is all that I imagined and hoped for.
    First is the namesake.
    Hurley Creek is the drainage for the area I love to camp in and I've spent many hours wandering it's banks and taking refuge from summer heat over the years.

    I like your Hurley Creek and your JK HC too. Good design for a small one. Especially like the - just a bit of guard - and the rounded in all the right places. A bare essential style knife that will be certainly prove its usefulness .:thumbsup:

    Nicely done team :cool:

    Great design and great workmanship. I'll probably order one soon. It looks like the spine of the blade is rounded and the handle square. Is that correct?

    Yup, rounded spine and John did indeed round off the handle edges just enough that they don't bite into my hand and thanks to the thickness it is actually comfy.
    I've handled quite a few blanks in 1/8" stock and this 1/4" stock feels way Comfier.:thumbsup:

    Comfyied. :thumbsup:;)

    Mayhaps.

    :)

    Thanks Jeff, I hope you like yours.

    Thanks Glenn.:)

    Well folks, I'm the kind of guy that just can't leave well enough alone so I blued the handle for a bit of protection.

    That's a good looking blade. And if you needed you could pry a car door open in an emergency lol.

    How's it carry in the pocket?

    Haven't had a chance to take it out for a test run yet.
    I'm sure it'll ride good in a back pocket though, as that's what I designed it for.
    As to the car door prying...damn straight.;)

    Beautiful knife in form and function. The simplicity of the knife is elegent, in a brutal, survive the apocolypse kinda way. And the looks are enhanced by the bluing; well done.

    The blueing looks sweet! Why didn't you do the whole blade? Are you going to use it to cut food?
