    So, with a fresh supply of belts I took after some blades and handles today while I was off, between doing some chores too... and then it happened..... while shaping a handle on a mini tracker, bam new belt fails grabs the knife which wacks the side of my thumb and goes flying!

    Several bad word, 2 band aids later and a handful of Motrin and I finished the handle..... by hand lol.

    So the tracker the flew, here is the end result for its damage.... if you'd call it that...?

    20181212_204708.jpg

    I'd say that's not bad for concrete, however I will NOT cover acts of stupidity and batoning through bricks or the like!

    Doctors appointment in 8 hours for my foot injury then the rest of the day on the grinder and forge followed by more handles and leather over the next couple days.... thankfully I am off Thursday and Friday

    Not nearly as worried about the Flesh Wound as I am about the throbbing tingling toe and pain in my foot.....

    In my hustle and bustle of the holidays, and re grinding lost blade by USPS, I have come up with some scraps of steel that became baby tracker blanks.....

    The two bigger ones are 8" OAL with 4" blades. The smaller one is 7" and kinda rough. The idea is a smaller PSK/ EDC sized tracker to be a last ditch with para cord wrap or primitive handle at most.

    I've been busy AF!

    I've been dying leather, bending kydex, laminating scales with liners, gluing up scales on blanks, got a few I'm in the process of heat treating! My list never ends, but my books are catching up. Before long I will open up a few spots for the coming months.... maybe....
