After seeing pace40's post (here), I decided that my Father's Day present was going to be a new blade. I missed having one of these back in the day; it made a great machete. Those goddamn tree cactus in my yard are already trembling at the thought.

This is a modified version of their Sirupate blade. I had them change the handle from a traditional version to the same one their Scourge has, as well as a few other specific options.

Kailash is great about communication during the build process, so I've decided to share their updates.

Initial grind complete:



Their next update: oil quench process complete



I'll post more as they occur.

Now I’m curious. Feel free to post them in this thread, if you’d like. It’s right on topic.
