    ^ awesome pic. Can't wait till mine comes so I can get some good shots of it. I used to think of myself as a pretty patient individual, ordering my first custom knife changed that.

    Sorry for the garage pictures from my phone.. Poor weather wouldnt let me get out in the woods today!

    The handles are really taking a nice burnished feeling that has an incredible grip. I highly recommend sandblasted handles. Ive never had any other handle finish like this after ample use and a tight sheath. Last picture is of my two favorite knives, my M3 and my great-grandfather's old Case whittler that i restored. Sort of an eery feeling having my favorite blade near my great-grandpas..

    Wow. Even though I saw this once I gotta say that is the nicest spork I think I have ever seen, fantastic really goes to show what is possible with your blades, I would have need multiple tools and wouldn't of even come close, great work Brian.

    My dad has a stone like that. Old timers did the circular edge first technique .... something to think about.

    I didn't rush it and that bamboo is a lot softer than that Kuksa you made!

    Sure thing! My granfather used to use an old flat rock he found that was perfectly flat and smooth.. What are the chances of finding a natural sharpening stone..?

    Im sure there are more pictures of all the SETs out there! Share them here!

    Slips Knife looks great Sarg!
    Still cant decide what kind of handle I want, what kind of wood is that.

    Take care

    Beat the crap out of it and if it can't take it I'll make you 2 that will.

    Fooled me.

    I never see a single loose pin or corby with Brians work.. super tight. Perfect symmetry.

    Looks like a factory pumped it out, but in a good way ;)

    Brian is due south of us Schwert. I-5 for about 14 hrs. Hang a right just north of Santa Clara. Stop before you hit the beach.

    Any time I drive East...I just cannot go much past Montana.

    Too many states back that a way, it gets all confusing.:3:

    I hear that. Being from the coast with an ocean on one side and mountains on the other that pancake was strange. I kept my head out of the window looking for the sun.

    The holidays came early today when the mailman arrived with a box for me from SARGENT!

    I am blown away by this Model 3 and sheath. Abrams tank meets Mora practicality? Hard to describe in words but exceeded my expectations is putting it mildly, and I am fussy. The scales are ultra comfortable. The leather sheath is hard molded, the knife snaps into it. Retention is superb.

    Can't wait to work on that Model 4 with you now Brian. Your stuff is addictive. Thanks and have a happy Thanksgiving!

    That is a solid recommendation for getting one of Brian's knives if I ever heard one.

    Spent the morning getting to know the M3. Made some notches, tent stakes, feather sticks, and then decided to carve a small spoon from some dry maple I have on hand.

    The knife is a bit bigger than I anticipated and feels solid (Abrams tank comment), but the blade width and shape make even finer carving tasks a real joy. :dblthumb:

    Looks like it has good company.

    I'm hoping that the extra handle length will help guys like you in cold weather that are wearing gloves.

    The handle is very comfortable for me so far with or without gloves in a variety of holds. I was able to really bear down and take big slices of wood, and then creep up on it and use the tip for very fine tasks without it feeling clunky.

    I'm off to help with the getting ready for Turkey day festivities now, and tomorrow I'm hunting. Life is good.
