    So if the end user decides to put a lanyard from the front to the back they can. Slightly safer when chopping.

    Can it cut? I'd say so. It will also lop off 3/8 limbs easily too!

    I'm just glad you didn't hit your finger on that chopping stroke! Would have been bad for business! Would have been a clean cut, though. Easier to re-attach...

    It kinda just happened lol. It will also lop off a 3/8"- 1/2" limb with one hit too.

    That is 1 of 4 custom half breed knives. They are a mix of my Pit Pup and a Simbida Perigrine handle. They are available for custom order only at this time.

    Yep 5th one down, and the one above it is a 5/32" one for @Murman and the one below it is for @Kimber22 after the first one failed the flex test last week and broke into a few pieces.

    The 3rd one down is one so I can test out on a deer this season and see what to tweak for next year. The modded old hickory is for @Luzster and kinda crazy/ scary since it's my first recurve :19::51:

    Oh I mistyped. Sorry about that. I should have typed “second from the bottom”. The one that looks sorta like a kukri.

    I've got 5 ready to quench and temper and 4 more with one more heat cycle before they are ready.

    For those waiting on the Peter's blades, I'm sorry for the delay. Trust me I'll make the wait well worth it. Also no other new orders will be accepted until those waiting on blades have theirs in hand.

    I have a couple miscellaneous blades I will post for sale as they come up in rotation but that's all that will probably come up through the end of year...

    Tape, cardboard or somehow cover your blades. Cause this sucks!

    Last temper cycle for the 6 started.

    1 has an edge from the 5, it's something for my brother so it's not gotta be perfect lol

    Is there one element in the whole process That you “worry” about more than others? Or are they all equally critical and one little mistake sends it back to the beginning? Just looking at the glue ups and reminded me of some issues on Forged in Fire... but maybe that’s just forced tv drama. Just curious.

    Material quality, if I had to pick one thing that's the biggest worry for me.

    I had a blade snap in flex testing last week, the steel was from a different supplier than I normally use. It was heat treated the same as every other piece of O1 I do and it snapped at the slightest flex.... needless to say that is a company I wont order from again.

    Also recently had some epoxy go bad on me, my fault I guess it wasnt stored correctly and it came apart in shaping a handle. Could have been a bad mixture, either way it was about our anyway so I bought some new.

    Other than that its human error that bugs me and rears its head from time to time. I'm just a little OCD so I dont sweat tiny things but small things bug me enough sometimes that I'll re do a blade, or send picture to the buyer with the option to press on or scrap and start over

    @CPRPE stuff like this is just barley passing grade. I dont use a file guide or anything other than a jig I made. I think that's pretty good though given I'm only 6 months into this endeavor!

    That's where you need a sharp and true 120 combined with a lower speed. Fast wobbly belts make plunges tough.

    Thanks for the advise Brian, I have been using 3M 2x72 984F Cubitron II belts st 1780rpm (single speed no VFD yet) . Any opinion on those?

    Belts from Truegrit will run truer. Vari speed is a must.
