Here are some progress pics for y'all. We did some car camping up in the N. Ga mountains this weekend, but then it was back into the shop!

I really dig your EDC's those 4 on the bottom look great. I got mine on my belt right now.

That Nessmuck in the Purple heart wood is going to look great, you lining it with Osage?

Where the Bushcraft jr's

Thanks! Haven't even gotten the mikarta and G-10 lined yet for the Bushcrafter Jr's. Dreading working that material. Wood is always great to work.

Love the first pic. intrepid travelers. Like the laminations too.:thumbup:

I wish I'd have taken more pics of the area. Its gorgeous. There is a waterfall there. It gets cool at night so you're not all miserable in your tent. With all these girls, car camping like this is the best I get to do. But this place is far enough off the beaten path that its pretty cool. No RV's at least.

What are these? :)
What do you call them.
Do you have a picture of a finished one?

Those are my EDC model. They're made from 1/8" thick 01 steel. The front pin is a SS corby bolt and the rear on this set is going to be a 1/4" SS tube. They're laminated woods with Osage on the inside and Goncalo Alves (x2), East Indian Rosewood, and African Blackwood as the outter layer.

Here are some pics of the original model that Tony has.
