    Kinda sad that I have to be at work when its semi nice and 40 degrees, when I could be home grinding on orders :(

    Just glad I am starting to feel better from this sinus infection..... lesson here is alway wear a respirator when working on knives, cause wood dist fiberglass resin and steel powder are not good and your body will treat them like an infection and then you get one! :26:

    Glad you're feeling better, sinus infections are no fun.

    I should start feeling better this weekend. I have been eyeball deep in kitchen remodeling for the last several weeks (on top of work and the holidays) and there is light at the end of the tunnel!

    30 minutes to spare! Love ya'll but my wife laid down the law! No working this weekend since tomorrow or today for some of you eastern folks, is our 10 year anniversary from when we first started dating. April 28th will be 7 years of marriage... oh where'd the time go....


    Anyway, here's what ya really wanna see!

    Some finished stuff tonight
    20190118_173317.jpg
    20190118_232115.jpg

    One to go into getting finished asap with 2 others!
    20190118_163817.jpg

    And i wasn't going to start more till these were done! But while stuff was drying..... I cut this out for a member here. Benny was for scale
    20190118_211009.jpg

    It's getting teal burlap and orange g10 liners, burlap from unique micarta!
    20190118_212637.jpg

    Yeah I am kinda a fanboy of Greg's..... there's almost $180 laying there, and there are 2 other sets not shown plus the piece above, so about $240 in just micarta!
    20190118_213611.jpg

    Thanks, as I narrow in on getting caught up I always think about what I've learned along the way and how each knife is a constant improvement on the last.

    Grinding off and deepening the serrated area then hollow grinding in a draw section, in short Trackerizing it.

    Today's history lesson:

    The LAST of the first 14.... This was the first blade I put a finish grind on when I got the first batch back from Peter's HT last June. It was intended to go to my mom as she wanted the first production knife that wasnt a prototype. Well after finishing it, finally, I decided that O1 probably wasnt the best choice for northern Alabama on a lake.... plus she's not a knife junkie and would let it get rusty. So I told her I was going to make her on in a nice stainless instead.

    Now I have a Orion Micro from the first batch with a nice dual color, again no such word as scrap in my shop!, kydex sheath.

    Had some errands to run today with the wife and ended up having to replace the rear brakes on her car so I didn't get as much as I wanted to this weekend.

    This should look good together though!

    Still waiting on a silly order before I can finish a couple more. :(

    Ordered this stuff almost 2 weeks ago! Finally came in.... its brass tube with a Orange colorfill, its translucent and looks awesome when you put a light to it. Should look nice when its polished up during finishing

    F&S kit fro @Teeps
    20190204_101132.jpg

    New pin striker and file striker fro @AngryDaddyBird
    20190204_101016.jpg

    And some baddassery from @Blackhawk45hunter in the form of his new Phoenix Bowie and a HWSK blank that was a special request that I'm EVENTUALLY going to hande in blue maze micarta from unique micarta with blase orange g10 liners
