    Hey guys, long time no post.

    I recently finished up my diploma at SAIT, and finally got around to getting back into the knife game. When I was cleaning out the garage, I found a monster piece of 1075 that I had laying around from 3 or 4 years ago, so naturally I made a big beefy bastard of a blade.

    I figured a large rough chopper type would be a good way to get back into things and acquaint myself with the new grinder. It's 1/4" thick 1075, 12" blade, 17" overall. Just 1/4" black linen micarta for the handles, nothing fancy. I debated putting this in as a work in progress because I'll probably do a little more polishing on the blade and handle, but... here it is anyway.



    Thanks for looking!

    Wow man, that's a serious blade. Very cool. I like the magazine test cut too. Gonna have to try that out!

    Thanks! My original thought process was that because I hadn't made anything in years, something big and utilitarian would be more forgiving, especially on detail work. Didn't want to push my luck, ya know?

    Sweet son of machete! Love it. Looks like it would be right at home in the jungle.

    Very nice. Simple, clean and even a little classy.
