    I don't normally reply and leave the pic but this one deserves it. That could be a painting.

    those mini M3s look amazing. I took my serechete out with my angler yesterday and didnt need a belt knife. The mini would go good there too I bet.

    Good combo for sure. Caleb puts a mean edge on that CPM154.

    Thank you Eddie, I'm trying. Think I've made some big design and skill set improvements.

    Best part about that knife is that I never finished it and it was a little broken in. I always like that, you can thrash on it and not worry about it.

    Thanks my man!

    Glad you like it Michael, I appreciate the support over the years.

    Yo B! I figure this is an ok place for this question if you don't mind.

    Where do you get the scales and cord for your primitives?
    I'm thinking about doing a primitive handle for one of the blanks I got from my bladesmithing course.

    On the last batch of Serechete's I used a heavy duty jute that is designed to be actual cordage ... not just string. It's actually a little thinner but consistent.

    Good hemp is hard to get and expensive. The cheap stuff is really inconsistent, thick/thin/thick/thin.

    I can send you materials or see you in two weeks.

    That belongs to a buddy of mine that is a general contractor. You can see the Sharpie marks on the grip. That was a good experience. Learned a lot of tricks. The taco is the smallest way you can do it but a lot harder. Eventually I'll get some blue guns and have stock holsters for some popular pieces.

    I picked up some oak scales and hemp cord that's for making jewelry, it's pretty consistent so now I'm just waiting on my G flex to come in and I'll get after it!

    That looks fantastic! Are you using Hermann Oak leather for everything now?

    Hmmm I'm not 100 percent sure. I'll have to crack open a book or two to find out.

    I remember huge bushes of it at Arroyo Sequit. They get bright pink and purple. Hummingbirds love it, watched them fight over it.

    @Sargent, can non-native, Texas rednecks play, too? lol My guess would be wooly blue curls (trichostema lanatum). Or that's what my re(google)search has led me to believe.

    Wait, what's the prize? :p

    Man, I'm really digging the pull the dot on your new leatherwork! Looking forward to the quick release, that is an awesome addition!
    Your innovations are outrunning my wallet, guess a little overtime is in order!....Thanks for all the hard work buddy, looks great!
