2019 Customs and WIP Stuff

Post by timos » Mon Feb 04, 2019 10:09 am

2018 ended with a bit of unexpected surgery for the wife and some other unforeseen complications so I did have to back burner knife making for a bit. I am getting back in the swing now though :)

Here is a 250mm almost finished. Handle length still needs to be adjusted and details need to be added.

Adding in some tapers to make sure the pinch grip is comfortable/ no sharp corners. Using mike Sakmar Mokume here.

Here is a hitachi blue#2 mono steel knife. The profile is a result of the customers sketch, big belly, some good heft, large flat....It getting dressed up in in titanium, curly ipe and corby bolts, using the same kind of titanium used in tanks to defend armor piercing rounds...this thing will be an absolute beast but with a insane distal taper.
