    Stichin up some sheaths tonight, and a member asked if I could do something similar to a Mountaineer...... in 3/16 O1! Holy crap this thing is awesome!
    Now I have a handful of things to finish up tomorrow to include getting out a couple bad ass Kiridashi's with 3 sheaths, a back sewn sheath for puukko from michaelbear and 3 sheaths for @Luzster too (they will go out asap buddy)

    Then on to the big fish, some more 3V goodness for a few orders and the Wasp auction goodies.... plus 3 or 4 more orders too.

    I'm working in setting up a new spot inside to do my leather work, one so I can do it in the AC and 2 so its separate of the grinders mess it makes. Should be up and ready by Sunday I hope.

    Anyway, 6 more cut out, ordering more steel, ordered 4 sets of black and yellow burlap, one thick asp piece of OD green burlap, and a sheet of 1/8" black g10 gor liners for the yellow and black for all the Wasp Stingers getting ordered.

    Now for an important update, I am completing the existing orders in the order received and as quickly as I can and still put out QUALITY products! Bear with me for a couple weeks, I promise it will be worth it guys!

    Sometime tomorrow it's going to be stabby and slicey.... for now its extremely HOT!

    20180801_000344.jpg

    This knife is a smaller one made as a tester for a larger knife same general profile.

    I'm also testing how quick I finish one out if I rotate my task between heat cycles and grinding and tempering.

    1/4" black G10 - Toxic Green G10 liner - Black G10 liner with Carbon Fiber pins and Lanyard tube!

    Nope, this is for a very custom Mt Lion! However the Burlap for the Stingers (yes plural, two more have been ordered in O1) is currently on it's way here now and I have the 1/8" black G10 for the liners on hand already.

    Holy crap on a cracker.... I'm gonna be a busy guy for a minute....

    I've been cutting stuff out and haven't actually laid it all out to look at. Honestly almost all of this is custom orders and doesn't include the 8 blade out at Peter's or the one over by the forge. There are a total of 20 here to get done up. The custom stuff has me super excited tho si its gonna be an awesome adventure

    As they get beveled, ht and then final edges they move from the bench to the hooks on the shelf. Let's me prioritize.... kinda.
