    I am dedicating this one thread to all of my work in progress and behind the scenes post I figured it would, be easier for everyone including me to keep up with one thread continuously a time versus a new thread every few weeks!

    So from here on out if you want to see any behind the scenes pictures or see my work in progress you can find it here! So make sure you subscribe to this thread and alerts!

    I will make this a sticky in a few days!


    Preview of what I am currently working on coming later this evening!

    With BladeShow clear in the rear view all the knives sold, and a few weeks of R&R under my belt it was time to re-supply.

    The thread what would you like to see next from me had influence on this current order, I focused on thinner steels, and for handle material nothing but Micartas and G10's I did happen to come across a good deal on some nice Koa and Tasmanian Blackwood those should be in later this week.

    Pictured here we have about 28 bars of steel, in CPM154 - 15 bars of 3/32'', 6 bars of 1/16", 4 bars of 1/8", 2 bars 5/32 and one small bar of 3/32 Elmax I am going to play with!

    Handle materials are G10's and Micarta in a variety of colors and ranging in thickness from small liners to 3/8" thick

    Here is a few knives I will be finishing up this weekend for next week's sales thread, I started on these before Blade Show but these got left behind due to time constraints. I glued the up this last weekend and shaped the handles earlier this week.

    I'll be looking for something blue in the future so something in that set of materials ought to fit the bill. :)

    I like the 2 new unnamed models also - mostly the one with the longer blade. Cool stuff.

    Should be interesting working with the Elmax too.

    I figured these two new ones would peak your interest Douglas! The little Ferox is pretty neat, it's a hand full of attitude! The smaller size makes it a little bit easier to carry and wield.

    I look forward to you coming along for the ride, I have big plans in store over the next few months! :)

    Glad to see I caught you attention with that one Phillip, was no surprise though. ;)


    Thanks Jerry! I made 2 of these before Blade Show, these two I started on but they never got handles on them, they are pretty slicey!
    I have a few sheets of Jade plan to see more! I also have a good bit of Royal Blue as well.

    I am looking forward to trying the Elmax, it is low on the priority list, but I have it so if the situation arises it is handy!



    It's good to some of us know each other's preferences, goes to show the connections people make here on Blade Fourms. :D:thumbsup:

    Those are some sweet looking blades you've got there! I can't wait to see them finished.
    What are the specs on the Lil Ferox?

    Me too, cause I don't know yet. I like Elmax from a users standpoint. It will be a medium size to smaller knife due to the Elmax being 3/32" should be interesting.

    Here is what I am currently working on.
    There are 66 blanks in all here all CPM154, There are some variations and one off sprinkled in too. Most of the regular profiles are stacks of multiples with the variations and one offs being individuals or pairs.

    At this point I have them scribe for the pin layout and next will be drilling hole for the pins and lightening holes.
