    Excuse my great camera work, Ive yet to makeshift a lightbox. None the less, here is a couple more blades Im just about finished working on. The Tanto style is assembled with lacewood i believe, and it was my first crack at stabilizing. I used polyurethane as at the time I had no Stickfast. No idea if it even needed to be stabilized, but hey, it was neat trying. Its also got red poly spacer. Im working on a hunter orange kydex sheath ATM. The other blade, hunter, has Purple heart scales with brass pins. A black kydex sheath is in progress for it. As always, appreciate the feedback good or bad..Thanks, and enjoy

    Chris,

    I'd take one of those any day. The lacewood looks great. Super job on finishing. On the purple heart hunter, I want to see a pin closer to the front of the handle. Maybe it's just me, but that seems like a long distance for epoxy alone.

    The palmswell on the tanto looks good and grippable. Did you use a drum sander?

    Thanks fellas, I didn't use a drum sander, just a Dremel and some sand paper. As far as the pins, I completely agree. I wasn't really paying attention to the length of handle.

    Damcom got the same comments I had. The purple heartwood is a pretty cool wood. it will turn more purple as time goes on.

    Ok here are the pictures with the sheaths made. First time doing a fold over style kydex..its ok, not great, but it serves its purpose. I also tried something i seen on youtube, I made a thumb push on it. Just selective heat (very carefully with a lighter), and pried it up with a round object and let it cool. Now you can push the knife out of the sheath, rather than pull. Makes things a little safer. Enjoy
