    I have been steadily working away getting knives finished up and out the door. I figured I would post up some shots of some recent stuff for you guys. I bought a light box setup finally so after this, my photos should start getting better hopefully.

    First off we have a pair of 7 inch blade fillets in CPM154, with black paper bolsters, and cocobolo scales. A father ordered these for his two sons. One went to Alberta and the other to BC.

    This one was made for a buddy of mine as an early christmas gift from his wife. Hes the type of guy that likes rugged things and is hard on gear, so this is hammer textured 3/16 80CrV2, with black paper and cocobolo. The writing on the sheath was not my idea, but a request to match a previous sheath he had made for a large kukri. Photos were long after he got the knife, so i have no idea what the dark spot on the sheath is from. The proportions are skewd in the photo but this is a 5 inch blade and 5 inch handle.

    This one is a simple fillet I made for a a local fundraiser. CPM154 with Australian Buloak scales and brass pins. Its pretty basic, but its what they wanted so its what they got.

    Another fillet in CPM154. This one had black curly spalted maple, green curly spalted maple, and G10 spacers. This one went to Texas.

    Another fillet in a different handle style. Donated to a local wildlife club fundraiser, and was auctioned off. CPM154, Bocote, and black paper. The sheath is textured and has an airbrushed fade from amber wheat to black.

    This picture is totally screwed but its the only one I have. The two items were photoshopped together, the angles and proportions are off, the white balance on the knife and lighting was terrible, the handle looks way too dark, the blade looks weirdly yellow, its a gongshow. This was random and I never got good finished pictures in the end. Anyway, this one is San Mai that i bought from Cal, with spalted maple that i also bought from Cal about 3 years ago. 10 inches overall with 5 inch blade.

    This is a knife i made from some cable I welded up a few years ago at a Hammer In. I contoured all the edges and just left it this way with no scales, so that the forge welded cable was totally visible. It turned out OK aside from the inclusion in the center of the bevel that i could not grind out without taking off too much material.

    Another fillet, CPM154, Ringed Gidgee, black and white G10 liners. Went to a buddies brother in law.

    And, for those sensing a theme, yet another fillet. I have a love hate relationship with these. I kind of hate making them, but i love how much people seem to like them when they get them. Again this one is CPM154, has black and white G10 liners, and the scales are Ironwood burl.

    Last we have a finger grip type hunter with bocote, and hammer textured Ricasso and sunburst sheath. This one is 1084.

    Nice knives... love the Christmas knife. One of my favorite styles. And the cable knife is cool. I like that it has no scales. I made a short little edc once with no scales. I really wanted to test out my filing (learnig to do vines). The entire handle is all vined up ... a bit overboard but i love that little knife. It was also my first attempt at a polished blade. sigh.. now i feel like i have to go take a pic of it (can't take a decent pic to save my life)
