Hey guys, I recently proposed the idea of starting a group similar to the Tracker Pack for us DIY blade carrying folks. I think I'm gonna call it the Blade-Scroungers or BSer's for short and to join you have to have a homemade blade that is one of your primary carrying knives. It has to be made by you, It can be a kit knife, Stock removal knife, Forged, Or even a reshaping project knife like a old hickory. To join you have to: 1. Post a pic of it, 2. Tell us why you went with that type of blade and what you like about it Then just add BladeScrounger # to your signature to tell the community that you did it yourself! Here's my submission: The reason I went with this design is, I wanted a heavy knife that would fit the same role as the BK2. Since I couldn't afford one, I made one I love that I can pound in it all day and not break it, it feels good in the hand and even chops pretty well. It started its life as a 12" delta USA file that I found at an antique tool dealer. I annealed it in a fire and ground it with an angle grinder and hardened it with an acetylene torch and quenched in water. I tempered at 500* for 2 hours. The scales are homemade mycarta, natural canvas and black cotton layered together.
