You did an excellent job on the bud, it looks great!
If you could buff back up 1/2" on the edge from tip to bolster. ..it would look killer
@isme Here you go. These are just with my phone, but you get the idea...
And don't let Joe tell you otherwise, he makes a quality sheath also!
@Phantom X I agree. I got to handle a box full of his Knives. Both his Knives and his sheaths are first rate. I ended up walking away with one and I'm thoroughly impressed with it.
He's a lot of fun to talk and trade with also.
I'm glad to see it made it home ok lol. Also glad to see it put to use @Monkeynono . Nice photos.
Thanks, Joe Hay
That's a really pretty knife.
Nice great, enjoyed the video as well, very nice spot for dinner.
I have really got to get around to making one of those for me! I really liked that one.

That's just plumb purdy!!!
Tennessee, you take phenomenal pictures!
Which model is this one? And if possible, how bout some specs?
Joe @hamanky will have to answer these questions. I know it is 01 tool steel and around 3/16 with around a 5" edge.
Very nice do all knife. I like it so much I have two.
That one isn't a regular model. The first one I made as a prototype to test out and Tennessee talked me out of it at a meet, then later had me make him another. As to the specs I'll have to look up the pattern I made for his and check it since it's been awhile since I made that one.

I really like it. Nice flowing design, looks super comfortable too.
I'm coming at ya Joe!
this is the design that speaks to me. with wood grip, please...
The big chopper, choppin out a bow drill coal.
@Tennessee You sir, have an enviable set of knives. Not even mentioning all the other dirty beauties here.
Thank You M. Hatfield.
If you were ever able to meet Joe, @hamanky here on the forum, who makes these knives, it would help you to understand why I appreciate them so much. Joe is a true artist with his knives and sheaths, and an all around great craftsman. He is also one of the nicest men you will meet. His grind lines and scales are exceptional and his heat treat is dead on. these knives will rarely dull, only occasionally needing lapping.
Here are all of mine so far, until the next meetup.
Well said bro, Joe is exceptional both as a craftsman and a person!!!
This may help define what kind of person Joe is. All my meetups are FREE and always will be although folks do make donations to help with supplies. When I was planning the last meet Joe contacted me and wanted to know if it was OK with me if he auctioned off one of his beautiful knives to help fund he meet.
Needless to say I was totally blown away!!!
I'll take it.
Thanks guys! I appreciate the kind words, the friends I've made through making knives and the BCUSA meets I've been able to attend are amazing!
Unfortunately lately I haven't been able to get much time in the shop because I'm the process of moving. The good thing is the new place has land, a better house, and a bigger better shop than I had before! It's a place my wife and I have wanted for about 5 years and were finally able to afford.
As soon as I get everything squared away and the shop reworked for 220 vac though I have a few new designs in the works!

Of course it hasn't been all work and no play though. My youngest said she wanted a "fort" in the woods at the new house to call her own so we've been working on that in the evenings.

At some point in the future I will own one of your knives. Very nice.
That's awesome Joe, congrats on the new place brother!
Likewise. I already know what it will be too.
Congratulations on the new place....and I want to get another knife from you in the not too distant future.
