    Default Another Sawblade Knife Almost Done

    I'm please with the grind on this one. Hollow grinding takes more practice than I thought it would. In the first picture the bottom piece of steel is the piece cut from a saw blade.

    Mighty fine work Crash. I like the lumpy back on it. Looks like it would make an excellent skinner and all around trekking knife. I like the weathered look on it too. Gives it individuality.. you'll never see another one like it.

    so have you decided on a logo yet?

    Very nice work Crash, I like your name choice too. CrashBlades Sounds tough.

    There is not a thing I don't like about that rascal. That's a drooler for sure. Very nice.

    You gotta have a natural talent for making them. Took me a couple of years to get it half right.

    Nice job Crash. I like the name idea as well. I really like the design on the top two blades.

    Those two (and one other) are sitting on hold until I practice puttin on a finger guard. The name was Karl's idea.

    I haven't sold any. I'll probably start this summer when the knife club that I joined is going to put on a little show.

    the logo.. an icon you'd put on the handle or etch into the blade..
    I like the name too, but can't come up with a logo for the life of me.

    Very, very good work! I especially like the second one from the top in the first photo. Is that a particular style that you are going for, or is it just from your head?

    Also, what is the red and blue material you used for the handle? I can only assume it is a synthetic.

    Just something in my head. The blue and red is denim and heavy cotton, put together with fiber glass resin. A homemade micarta if you will.
