    Great handle idea Canid!

    Great looking blade Camp!

    I'd be more than happy to donate some knives! They won't be as good as you all make I figure, but I'll do it. Just have to get a file or rasp. Really getting into this knife thingy . Got three in the works as we speak...LOL

    Didn't get a chance to work on it too much this weekend. I might use wood instead of micarta - not sure yet.

    now isn't making partial-tang recesses in a set of scales fun?

    after doing so for the kukri, i told myself i need to stop doing that, but i don't think it'll take.

    At first, I tried a piece of homemade micarta for the handle material.

    Something didnít feel right about it (not sure what), so I then tried a piece of laminated wood (some call it star wood)

    I still need to explore some different options for the screws. The Chicago screws I have are a bit too large for my liking. Iíll play around with it Ė with the requirements that it be easily loosened and tightened in the field.

    Nice work Crash! I'm going to make a cam type of lock for mine to take the handle on and off. I planned to work on it today but it was just to nice and so I spent the day outside. There is rain coming this week though so I will get to it this week.

    Yeah - nice here too. I was working most of the day. When I got home I put the little belt sander on my "yard" table and sanded it down. Beautiful day to be outside.
