    Wanna come to my garage??? Although I think my problem is too much stuff. I need to purge big time. But I always think "I may need that..." OK> Enough hijacking. Carry on...

    I think mini puukko whittler need to be a model, what say ya'll? I am also thinking about setting up to do flared tubes vs pins so that would do well with kydex in this case or a classy belt/ pocket leather sheath!

    I did not get nearly what I wanted to done this weekend. The cold weather made the thumb stiff and hindered a lot of my plans.

    But I have these ones done and the sheaths dyed and drying!

    I am digging the Hulk's features, Great job!
    That's about perfect for my taste.
    I do like the pliers, saw and main blade. I could be wrong, but it seems hard to get all three without going big (and no alox). The only thing lacking is the awl, I am guessing it wouldn't work out without adding another layer.

    I could have did the awl in place of the multi tool. Also could have done g10 vs the alox

    With a fair size work load already and some up and coming family issues coming up I am not going to be taking custom orders for the foreseeable future. That's not to say I wont at some point but I'm going to be focusing on what's on deck now and my family stuff so if/ when the time comes I can be there for my wife and her family.

    Recent stuff going on...

    Didnt have time to devote to shaping handles the way I prefer to this morning, but I had enough time to pop holes in some 3V! 4 more to go then its grind on!

    20190318_110326.jpg

    I'm hoping since I'm off tomorrow and my wife works, that I'll be able to finish up a few handles and get inital grinds on all of these blades that I need to get out to HT and maybe a few that i dont "need" but that are for personal use.
