Perfect. Thanks.

I went up to the Bark River Ice-In, this past weekend. With a GREAT deal of help from the staff, I managed to cobble together a couple. The first one, is a super-sized version of BRKT's Canadian Camp Knife. I ground the shape from a rectangular billet of hardened A2, added black liners, walnut from a friend, and Mosaic pins.


The second knife, made Sunday, is on a water-jet cut blank of BRKT's "Special Hunter", which is a new model coming down the pipe. It's A2 as well. The pins are plain ol' brass, the lumber is cocobolo and I didn't add liners.

The least you could have done is knock me out a Golok.

what does one of those weekends cost? They do 3 events a year that I could see, might be worth taking a trip for.

This past one was $175 for the materials for 1 knife with Micarta or G10 scales and plain pins, plus $30 for the Saturday meal, which was well worth it. Additional knives started at $60, IIRC. This was the thread for the event:

great thanks for the info
having to travel will add a bit, but looks like a lot of fun and a great result at the end.
edit: oh and good work by the way

Nice? Well I don't know. It's kind of special as I inherited it from My Great Uncle Tom when I was about 20. I figure this set is from the 40's or 50's. Anyway it has a pocket knife and then the attachments all hook into the other end of the knife. Sort of the not so convenient swiss army knife idea. Accessories include the small hammer, a file, an awl, flathead screwdriver, fish scaler/hook remover/say and bottle opener combo, a wide flat blade and , of course, can opener.

Blade is stamped "Utica Cutlery Corp, Utica, NY Made in USA"

The whole thing came in a tooled leather (maybe) zipper case. All of the metal polished right up with a touch of simichrome and now I just keep it around to play with now and again.

Kind of an interesting deal to me anyway...

I had a kit like that! I probably had it in the early '60s. It wasn't quite as extensive, but I remember the screwdriver, bottle/can opener, and file attachments.

On another subject... I picked up some P1800 belts for the Work Sharp Knife and Tool sharpener. I find them better than the 220 grit for touching up a blade before hitting them with the 6000 honing belt. My wife noticed the difference in her favorite kitchen knife (and she didn't know I'd sharpened it). It was good, it got better.

Thanks to all who mentioned the Work Sharp. I also picked up the 40 Outdoor knife guide now that it is available. Good stuff.

The Work Sharp is fantastic. Just tonight, in a fit of stupidity, I snapped about 3/32" off the tip of my BlackJack Necker. Using the Work Sharp green belt I reshaped the tip on the top and bottom and then to get an edge started in the area. The finer grits finished it off and it's back to razor sharp from tip to choil.

But after my weekend of knife "making" I'm thinking of upsizing. What about this: http://www.vansantent.com/multitool.htm Smithy? Anybody?

Found some SS bar stock in the shop and an old floor jack handle. Decided to throw something together for the hell of it.
