Looking great Eric! I am interested in the jigged bone or acrylic. Send me a message if you’re selling!
Wow!!Well I'm slowly but surely getting there with the new knife company. Made a practice run of fifteen knives this week and everything turned out great with the exception of my shield pins. I thought for sure they were nickel silver but it turns out they're stainless, hence the glaring pin show! Don't know how I managed that, what a rookie mistake! Ugh. I'll definitely remedy that on the next batch. Well anyway whoever gets one of these has a surefire way of proving that they got one of the first fifteen LOL! Plus it's actually nice to see that the stainless blended in as well as it did, definitely a good sign. Did a whole bunch of different handle materials to make sure the shields were doable. Here are a few shots. There's gabon ebony, bubinga, old westinghouse maroon micarta, blue/yellow kirinite, and a couple of different jig bones. Now I can start in earnest. Waiting on boxes which should be here next week, hoping to get between fifteen and twenty knives done a week. Blades and springs are CPM154 (61RC) with half stops, bolsters and liners are stainless as well. Length is 3 3/8" closed. I'll keep you posted:

Thanks for the compliments everyone! They're not quite ready to be put up for sale yet, still waiting on boxes but should be good to go in a week for sure. I'm going to try to have a website up by then as well. I really just wanted to share the outcome with everyone, couldn't wait to show you! I'm pretty sure I can't discuss prices here but if you have any questions feel free to shoot me a PM or email any time, I'm always available.
DavidABQ the knife is 3 3/8" closed, the blades are 2 9/16" from the end of the bolster to the tip.
