Hmmm.... Now I'm intrigued!
Just like an actor researching a role.....
R&D in my time between various task....
I dont like the 1/4 being so deep, it's to had to sharpen and make it look good. But! It works
Stocking up now.... also ordered several more belts, next is a bunch of micarta.
It's a handle kinda day!
I tried grinding but with a cracked bone in my big toe, I want nothing to do with being cold and sore!.... I'll do more grinding when I fire up the forge for some heat lol
Mini modified tracker
And a striker, hollow ground experiment.
Hmmm tbt 2 vs PK-WSK MINI.... wonder who will win?
New toys and more belts!
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.
Ouch! No stitches at least?
no time for stitches......lol
Yes I have been busy.... yes I am catching up, no I'm not done yet! I'm just getting started!!
Peripup 4 of 4 (available, order was canceled)
Puukko, btw I am not s fam of these knives but this one is classy and I like it! Its taken
Pair for @Rockgod1619, Peripup 3 of 4 and mini tracker #1 prototype
A Custom Bushcrafter for @HannahT
Modding a ESEE 3HM for @sweet trav, 8 hours of etching now to strip it and sharpen the spine.
Patriotic Mini Tracker #2 prototype
Lots of goodies
And a lil something, no the tang isnt really big but it's a 3.5" blade and ment for detail work not beating on.
The damage from the grinder/ tracker incident.
It's but a flesh wound!
So the tracker the flew, here is the end result for its damage.... if you'd call it that...?
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.....
I was actually referring to the knife!
anyone else notice this thread has had over 7,000 views? I mean dang thats over 1k a month since I became a vendor....
Atleast 50 of them have to be me checking back, going, Is that my knife???
Congrats on all the views!
In no specific order, I've been busy...
Still have 3 to push out asap this week, 4 3v and 1 CPM154 coming back from hr this week that 2 of need done asap.... no rest for the wicked....
Your work bench looks like mine! Haha! I think I see my knife Can't wait!!
lol that's the dining room table like 10 minutes after our Christmas party ended! And yep its in the middle of the giant mess!
Yay! We usually have to move a bunch of my projects out of the way to even sit down at the table
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.
This poor knife has been a LONG time coming.... @Longhunter1761
Wow! Now that is a really cool idea.
Which one ?
The glow in the dark liners. I have never seen that.
Glow in the dark... Verrrrrry cool... Me likey.
They are neat, I can get blue or green and they charge with a flashlight too!
Me too, but it's such a pain lol
How do those heat treated blades look that came in today?
Good! Got one or two maybe 3 cleaned up already.
@HoustonB77 one of the .110 mini Brute's and maybe the mini tracker might be available....
I’m loving the liners on the TBL! Looks great!
Hard to see in the pictures but this one got Copper pins since I was out of stainless and didn't know it.
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....
So it starts!
This thing is so badass!
What model is the knife on the top?
PK Puukko, its newer to the lineup. Ya like it?
I present the one, the only, Brute XL!
It's a cool looking blade shape. I may get one in the future.
Crap... Now I want another one! Killing me, I say! Blue micarta with yellow or maybe.... glow in the dark liners? Now we're talking...
I've got some Blue Quad crosscut micarta from Unique Micarta and yellow liners....
Next ? What steel? Lol
Hey @HannahT ....
Woohoo! The wait is almost over!! When do I get to do my first featherstick with that??
The sheath is drying now, I'm going to do everything I can to have it packed up and on it's way today before the PO closes if I can.
Sweet!! I can't wait!
Sheath is a tight fit so be careful. I warned ya
I'll try not lose any fingers! Ha!
