You guessed it.
This is where prototypes get posted.

Some are totally experimental.
Others are for sale.

Basically this is where I get to play with new ideas, new steels, new handle materials, and other fun.

Things posted will be a fair price.
They do not include a sheath.
I can make sheaths for an additional 20-50$. Depending on size.

First prototype.

Thin edge.
I can add G10 handles.

$200 shipped and it's yours.
An extra 20 gets you a sheath.

Only defect is the edge bevel isnt perfectly even. I was way too excited to test the steel.

Look at that edge o_O. Hope he's not batoning with it :D
Ohh no.
I have a feeling this client is VERY skilled in culinary use. Hes practically giddy with excitement

But.....this will be tough to let go, lol

*to be fair I have the kitchen skills of a 10 year old.

Quick kitchen knife update.
That knife will be reground to have a thinner spine after I return from California.

It's an absolute potato killer.
But. The onion slicing isnt quite where I would like it.

Colin, don’t forget about the competition chopper we discussed in M4. This is your old pal Ken from Rhode Island who’s loyalty was legendary before you went all Hollywood on me.
