    Thumbs up Grand river Machete thread

    If you got pics you're more than welcome to put them up here. Or if you have questions about this model or just want to talk about it, that's ok too.
    Mostly this will be a running thread on the knives of this model I've made for people to use as a reference for a knife they have or are looking to buy on the secondary market.

    2/5/11 5/32" 1095 high carbon steel, half height convex, scale left on flats, rough hamon line, dark brown canvas micarta scales, Steel pins and lanyard
    *prototype*

    4/12/11 5/32" 1095 high carbon steel, half height convex grind, rough hamon line, Copper bolsters, stabilized black locust burl scales, thin red g10 spacers, 1/8" brown micarta pins**The heavy copper bolster combined with 1/8" micarta pins was a mistake on this one. When the knife was battoned with the bolsters sheered the pins and fell off the knife. I re-handled it with caramel linen micarta, natural micarta spacers and 1/8" micarta pins. I got a little aggressive when putting the new handle on and got the handle height a little too thin.***

    It is the only photo of it that I have with me.Natural with thin orange g-10 sandwiched.The others are all Carbon v CS knives and a Marbles but rest assured that the Grand is my favorite.I am in Kentucky working.when I get back home I will take some more photos with the sheath(if you will notice the sheath is laying on the pile of knives in front of the wind shield) and post em up.It is the only Turley I have now but am patiently waiting on two more tools from Iz to post up in the other threads.

    Number 5, this blade is either laughing at me cause I ain't swinging it hard enough, or it scares me when I do and it just eats through about anything, either way I lose. Its a monster, holds a great edge, no rolling or chipping, just chopping. It's awesome.....





    Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

    I have few Marbles Gladstone knives but the Trailmaker seems to be the hardest to come by so for now it is a model for my bad photography and on the reserve list.

    There are very few universal truths, one of them is the need to own a good knife.
