    BAM! Another one out of the park. Holy moly I do love that Harrier.
    (...must be strong and resist changing my current order!)

    Haha that's the hard part about custom knives. So many options!
    I've gone through 3 harriers and still haven't come up with a handle combo I'm content with. Just when I've made myself one with a handle I love, somebody orders a different handle combo that I fall in love with.

    The next one will be the one for sure... Haha

    Awesome full flat!!
    That's a Harrier, right? Hard to judge the size, thought it might be a Kestrel at first.

    Yes sir! It's a harrier, and I actually just finished an almost matching kestrel for a different customer, just different liners.

    Yes sir that's the one :dblthumb:

    Sorry bro, shipped out yesterday.

    Pics are on my Instagram though. Not side by side, but I posted up a lot of pics of both.
    Typically I post 2-3 times more pics there than here because it's just so fast and easy to upload to. If you see a cool knife here, odds are good that there are 2-3 more pics at various angles on my Instagram.

    Lol, I joined Instagram last week strictly because of Siembida Knives.
    God help me... I've become a fanboy.

    It’s not, but it’s out for heat treat along with that one!

    I stopped to take that pic right before grinding the bevels on yours and sending them all out.

    It’s worth noting that the whiskey jack model is now on the models and pricing thread, now available for order,

    This first week of 2019 will be knife intensive!

    These three plus two others on the bench will be shipping Friday.

    Just a little more finish work on the handles, then some finish work on the bevels.

    Woot!

    I’m only a week or two away from being order free, so get some orders in! I can’t wait to get some knives started for you guys.

    Sorry guys, works been killer. Almost no sleep and nonstop mandatory overtime have kept me from making the headway I was hoping. I’m on the last 3 knives right now, doing glue ups and hardware in the morning.

    I can’t wait for my day job to chill out again.

    That sucks. My employer swamps everyone with mandatory OT every new year because we all got our vacation time back. They want us to use it up so we won’t be able to call off when they actually need us later in the year. It’s a pretty shady and low thing to do but it happens every year and our union chapter president won’t do a thing about it. He’s a yes-man in the company’s pocket...
