so, i am building a stainless variant for one of our fine members here. he wanted a nice, stainless Slim Chance with a more svelte blade profile. it came out some well that i made a second larger one. just cause. i like this blade profile adjustment so much, i am going to call this one, Slim2None. i may even have to have one for myself in W2 or something with a nice, copper hamon on the blade. this should be a fun WIP thread. here they are just after the rough blade grind.

I really like these knives. I own several of your knives including a few of your file knives (actually I might own the first one you ever sold) and like all of your knives they are fantastic blades.

My Liontribe collection. The top three are file knives, the very top knife was one of the first you sold, if not the very first. Somewhere I have a certificate of authenticity from you. The second knife from the bottom was the first of your knives I bought. You named it “shard” and frankly I can’t think of a more perfect name.

wow, you certainly do have quite the collection. makes me realize that i really should revisit some of those models again. i have always loved making those smaller fixed blade designs. they are just so much fun to make and to carry in a pocket. i was just gifted a pile of nice, old files by a friend of mine. i should make good use of them soon.

much appreciated. i think this little variant may do well. we are already taking a ton of orders for them, in stainless and various high carbon steels. gonna be a busy spring around here. took some quick shots of two in W2 tool steel. you just know i had to clay the blades before heat treat. these should have some very nice hamon lines when done.

here are the W2 tool steel models all cleaned up and ready for handles. you can see the ghost hamon on the smaller one if you squint just right. the lighting in the shop is not great for pics.

here are two AEB-L stainless models, all cleaned up from the heat treat. the smaller one is already spoken for. these have been really fun to make.

this one was very fun to make. W2 tool steel with an antique patina etch and synthetic aged ivory handle. the scallop pattern in ivory looks so nice in person.

this is the last stainless model with our Crime Scene etch and it is going to get this burgundy barbwire micarta for the handle. excited to see how this one comes out. never used this particular micarta before.

here is the last one in stainless. turns out i used the linen burgundy instead of the barbwire. it came out nicely, though.

we just finished this little drop point variant from a small file. i did a bit more shaping and sculpting on the handle. i think it suits this one.

so i did a thing. this is a Slim2None Spiral expression. we do our Spiral theme on certain special builds. this one 80CrV2 steel with engraved spiral designs on the flats. light grey etched finish and a unique handle design that carries the spiral design, as well. handle is black barbwire micarta with machine bolts.
