    Forged in fire is the only reality show my wife and I agree on. It makes a great betting game (we each pick who we think will win after the 30sec intro)

    A friend suggested it. I don't get the History channel, but have seen snippets on Youtube. Jason Knight and J. Neilson are both great makers. JN is a PA guy.

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?

    Custom knives - another thing I never could have thought could be sold for so much money. Makes a custom bike frame seem like a bargain, way more lbs of stuff for your dollar!!

    12" 1075 blade, Micarta handle scales and mild steel fittings. Layered patina and oil finish. Combining some features of a kukri and a Puma hunter, this woods walker has a bit of a barong feel.

    Bet that blade has some @ss behind it. Good for whacking vegetation out of the way.

    I just finished my first hollow ground knife.



    Continuing to play with surface finish and texture- in this case I blued the edges and natural flats, and went with a bright satin on the bevels.



    Micarta with an oil finish and stainless pin.



    Need to pick a color and sheath design next.

    More here.

    Thanks. In regards to folders; I have not. Eventually I'd like to do some friction or slip joints for personal projects, but nothing planned.

    Thanks, J and J. That's one of my regular users. A couple more coming down the pike.

    Josh- that saw blade is the gift that keeps on giving. Keeping my peepers peeled for another few of them.

    If you like that, you might also enjoy this and this. Different, but some similarities.
