    And working on a couple new models...
    The Backpacker, 3.5" clip point blade, 4" handle. 3/32" O1. It's got a lightened tang and is ment to watch the ounces. Could even be a really nice EDC too!

    This one is going out @VanGo shortly. It's a Orion XL, in a FFG, and no it isn't perfect but for my first FFG I'll take it.

    Yea so I normally carry a Tupperware model G19 on my right EDC, so I decided it was time for a lefty sheath and I chose to fit one to the Survival Kurz for carry tomorrow out in the field.

    So you southpaws, I got you!

    Out with the old, in with the new. I'll clean up the blade too before the new handle scales go on.

    Kukri re handle is now done as well as the Dozier

    Kukri, this one was challenging because under the original scales there were a ton of hammer marks and the taper was off quite a bit on the tang. I straightened it up as much as I could without changing the shape or profile.
    20180606_235434.jpg
    20180606_234310.jpg

    The Dozier wasn't near as hard to re handle, didnt even have to adjust either kydex sheath for it either!

    Can you tell which was hardened at Peter's?
    20180608_004432.jpg

    The mini Pararang is that much closer to done! I will harden it and temper it today!
    20180608_012748.jpg

    Along with finishing up these!

    Well ya see, what had happened was....... that was a scrap section of steel that just wasn't quite tall enough to make anything else.... so it may have just happened.... no name yet but I do believe it will unseat my Bushcrafter design as my new Favorite..

    Me too, just ask the misses! !

    Well I will be getting the handles glued up tomorrow and ready to go on it. OD green canvas bolsters, with Jade G10 on the aft 2/3 of the scal with a orange G10 liner between the two and between the tang and scale. Should be a fun time..... not.

    Things are happening tonight other than making a butt load of shippi g labels..... I'm also finishing up the bevels on this backpacker and about to glue up the 4pc handles for the no name above. And maybe the backpacker too (it's available now btw)
