    Decided to spend some time over the past week grinding away at my GEC 93. Turned it from a ramfoot to a lambfoot. It’s a little rough but considering it was all filed down by hand (no power tools were used) I’d say it turned out alright. And the blade is perfectly pinchable so no need to add a nail nick.

    Here's a little trick I learned from Adam Vigil's IG feed to hold your rosettes in nice and tight while the glue dries. Be sure to use vaseline on the pin and inside surfaces of your liners less you want them stuck! This is going to be a shadow pattern, lightweight single blade spear with parts salvaged from a Winchester Black Box Moose. The clip blade will be getting the same treatment next only with natural linen micarta. Have a Merry Xmas everyone!

    I really am enjoying watching these shadow pattern knives being done, that's what I really want to do. Also, anyone doing MOP? I'd love to hear about your experiences and tips with it.

    I just finished up this spear blade Winchester Black Box 2991. Linerless, lightweight shadow pattern conversion in black canvas micarta and NS hardware. Hand rubbed blade to a 1200 grit finish. She turned out fantastic! Excellent snap. Super lightweight and solid as a rock. I'm very pleased with this one. Next up is the same treatment for the clip point blade from this pattern. Thanks for looking!

    A lightweight, what a well thought out conversion. Look fantastic. Can't wait to see the other half. Nice looking micarta btw.

    Just finished up the second knife of these Winchester Black Box 2991 Moose shadow pattern lightweight twins. I'm extremely proud and happy with how they turned out. Such a fun project. Thanks for looking!

    Had a fella ask if I could do something close to Franks beerscout sfo. Started as jigged bone. I do not hand make my shields, but the one I had on hand is sorta close.

    Tremendous job on this and the Clip blade too (prefer the Nat Canvas myself but like Spears more ;)) Wish you could start mass producing these as they look fantastic:cool:

    Thanks Will! I'm really happy with how both turned out. Honestly if more people send me this pattern they would be mass produced! Lol. I'd much prefer doing customers knives by request than buying my own, recovering and reselling. I'm limited in resources that way. What I prefer or choose may not be everyone's preference unfortunately.
