    Default My First One Back

    After a few days of practice grinding to get back into the swing, I ground out two knives. You already saw the one where I had a mishap. Here is the other one. The Hong tube is misshapen a little on one side, but with the Hong riding snugly in it, it probably won't be noticeable. Particulars are 3/16" 1095 steel, OAL 9 3/4", Blade length 4 1/2", Denim Crashcarta scales, brass Hong tube, brass pins, Homemade Mosaic pin, red liner.

    Survival is not about surviving AGAINST the nature. It's about surviving WITH the nature.

    You can't go in to nature, nature is not a place or an object. Nature just is. You are living it.

    I was going to send it to you, but I was so ashamed at how it turned out that I just couldn't burden you with it.

    Great looking knife, the denim sure makes a nice handle.

    I remember years ago I broke my hand and had to give up woodworking for several weeks. It was a great day when I could get back to what I liked to do. BTW Nice knife and good to see that your back to what you enjoy doing.

    Very nice knife ........I really like your angles for the bevel of the edge. Have you made a sheath for it yet?

    What is its total weight?

    How was the 1095 to work with? How was it to sharpen?

    Do you seal the Crashcarta after a polish or just bring it to a natural polish?

    Will there be a matching ferro rod?

    Looks pretty!
    Very impressed!
    Now how about a pink one?
    I like escalators, because an escalator can never break; it can only become stairs. You would never see an "escalator temporarily out of order" sign, just "Escalator temporarily stairs... sorry for the convenience. We apologize for the fact that you can still get up there."
