I am doing one knife in a different design for one of the Officers. Smaller and well just different. It will be finished up today and I will post pics. OD Green Canvas Micarta and OD Kydex. https://imgur.com/a/e0Aur

I want to use this skinning a Wild Hog, the way the handle makes the blade orient to cutting is surprisingly amazing!!!!!!! 5/32” CPM-154 HRC 60-61


PICS!!!!!!

They all look nice. Not sure if I would have actually carried the big one back when I was on TRT though. I like a 4" light blade. Never used it either lol. Always used the folder.

A lot of guys are using folders.. I think some just like the old fashioned fixed blade.

This batch is off to heat treat! Targeting 59-60 HRC from Peters Heat Treating in Pa. They will do a light bead blast before to make the blades a little more matt and not so shiny!!!! Now the wait begins, although, they should only take about 7-10 days! Great company by the way!!

There is oil on the blades in the first pic.

Here is a batch getting ready for sheaths and sharpening!! Bead blast and Ferric Chloride make for a nice “flat” non-reflective surface on the CPM-154 steel. I am really happy how this project is coming together!! OD Green Canvas Micarta and Carbon Fiber pins, oh yes!! Some of the scales look darker than the others as they were just wiped down with WD-40. It does an amazing job with Micarta!

Sybo, those are just stunning.

I think you ought to make that design part of your regular catalog, and maybe do a 3" version as a companion knife.

With the 5 and the 3, that would be a set I would seriously consider buying.

Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."
