Looks like a slicer, I think I might need a compadre in my life
I have yet to find a material it does NOT treat like butter. I will be testing it on hardwoods later this week.
Man, every time I see those CF scales, I get envious! Nice score again my friend.
Side note- should have your Firesteel out for you, either tomorrow or Thursday
You are the man, dude!
I already have this new knife dirtied up with packing tape, pitch, and even the start of a patina.
Freshly sliced bark....
Love this knife!
I don’t know where to post this....just found it in the mailbox.
A Turley ldw with Brian’s primi wrap...that it, I’m done! Haha
That thing is wicked sweet!
I wish I found knives like that randomly in my mailbox.
Well, if you are done let’s talk about “the” stag....
Ha! I knew this reply would be interesting- lol! That’s a heirloom knife!
And then the legend found me...
of course it didn’t look like that originally. It got a little spa treatment and the gloss finish was changed to matte for better grip.
What is the spine thickness of that beauty?
Oh... My... God... I'm not envious... Nope!
Man I was so close to grabbing that but have bought 2 Turleys recently. Hit me up should you ever tire of it.
Love the new matte finish on that maroon micarta. Just gorgeous!
@Wandy who did that “spa treatment”? Looks amazing!
I have the scales for that LDW.
S. is da man..... indeed!
Carbon fiber is heavier than g10 or micarta by volume. Carbon fiber has a high strength to weight ratio. When you make a bike frame, race car chassis, automotive body work .... you can use more carbon fiber than steel therefore you can make the parts beefier. The parts can be thicker in high stress areas making them more rigid while slightly lighter weight. By volume carbon fiber is not stronger than steel or titanium but because it’s lighter you use more of it to make a durable part with less joints.
Pulled the scales off that Turley and that’s what I found! I swear!
A good friend of mine is bike mechanic and handles carbon fiber parts and carbon fiber bikes worth more than many cars! The uses for carbon fiber vary greatly. It is a very versatile material.
I love the material and it has SUCH a nice feel on a knife handle.
A few skunkworks projects, bringing back some of the original style with a twist.
Those sheaths are stunning!
Speaking of, I have a new sheath on the way for my Compadre. Should be the perfect knife for around the neck or on the belt.
Also, I love that contrasting thread!
First Compadre backsewn belt sheath.
That is going to go west to Yellowstone with me later this summer!
Lucky guy! There is a Genie in that sheath, as soon as you get to the park and collect firewood I'm going to pop out of that thing ready to camp!
I will see you there then!
lol that was a good one!
3/32" 01 PSK came home today. I say "Home" because I owned it before and just traded back into it. I would put a smiley face emoticon but it is against my policy.
So much goodness in one pic! Model 2 just came to join the family today. Does not disappoint!
So do you have all the M's yet? One through..... six?
I’m trying to help you out with the library!
I have a M1, M2, M3, and M3C. Would LOVE to have a M4!
I will update and organize that soon. Maybe tomorrow since it will be a rainy day.
I thought I saw an M1XL on the trade blanket today.
Man you ain’t lying! And that M3 is making me sweat a little too...
Resistance is futile.
Met a new friend this week with the hook up on meats. Wagyu filets and Wagyu/Bison burgers, and some New Zealand beef sausages on the dinner menu tonight. M3 helping with food prep.
M3 works as a steak knife as well!
@ugashooter Nice grab on the M2. That’s a rare bird!
Man, it feels like a dream in hand. Not sure why the hell that model hasn’t taken off. If Brian makes some more, I’d buy a back up in a heart beat
First blood drawn is mine. Damn thing kisses like a vampire.
Now you actually own it!
Making up by the fire. Still bleeding but making up... beer helps.
Today’s mail call!
Picked this up from fellow member @Wandy (Thanks again brotha!).
My 11yo daughter & I casted this Firesteel a while back. Well, I just did what she wanted done. She has a great artistic eye!
She is into anything Galaxy/stars etc.
My first M1 & not the last!
Nice color combo on that one!
