    A folder and a fixed I finished this week

    Thought I'd post a little of what I've been doing lately. The drop point is one of my EDC's featuring a 3-1/8" blade from CPM-S35VN. It has an overall length of 7-1/8" and has 416 bolsters and some really chatoyant Hawaiian Koa. I offer this knife in several different blade profiles. The folder...

    First forge build; I'm gonna need help.

    Not too long ago I asked about buying an Atlas Mini Forge. One thing lead to another and here I am about to build a blown forge as my first forge. I received several components from Bruce Bump and I've begun purchasing/scrounging everything else. I ordered and have received a 60cfm blower and my...

    Should I buy an Atlas Mini Forge?

    "Buy an Atlas Mini Forge?" is now "Help me build a forge...Please" Here's where I'm at; I've been making knives for a year using stock removal. There is no doubt in my mind that this is going to be a lifelong passion. I will be attending the Intro to Bladesmithing class at Washington, AR in...

    New flipper progress pics

    Since I'm new here, I wasn't really sure where to put this but, I felt like this was the best place. This is really not going to be a WIP; just some progress pics and some photos of the finished knife when I get there. I've been carrying around my third folder in my pocket for about three...

    Girls Tactical EDC w/ Pink & Black DewCarta

    I finished this yesterday. Had not worked with DewCarta before but it was the right color for the project so I gave it a try. I found it to be very similar to sandblasted canvas micarta but, without blasting it. It does not get a super smooth finish unless you apply a top coat. I experimented...

    Blackwood Tactical

    Just finished this one today. It has an interesting story to it. It was ordered by a guy who came through Infantry Basic Training when I was a Drill Sergeant in late 1999/early 2000. He wasn't in my platoon but I was one of the lead instructors for the company so, everybody got to know who I...

    New to Knife Dogs - Here's some of my recent work

    I posted in the introductions page and said my hello's. Thought it might be a good idea to post some pics of some of my recent projects. If you frequent BladeForum you may have seen some of these. I'm still a new maker (not sure how long one is considered new) so still developing a style while...
