    Since I've added the ParaMilitary2 Sprint run in CTS-20CP, the black Manix2 and a Jerry Hossam Forager:

    Kinda funny really, in that even on the fixed blade there's a vestige of the thumb hole.

    In reality, since the hole has become their trademark to s point, it isn't hard to understand why it is there. Although, I see they tried real hard by making it TINY to make it just a trademark and not something end users would call or email and ask what the hell it was for when they got the knife!

    Ha ha! Thanks!

    There's no such thing as having too many friends.

    Just finished this one for my younger brother, Jim. He's been so generous and kind to me over the years that I wanted to give him a knife that he will be able to remember me by. Something I made just for him! He's an old Wisconsin buck hunter and outdoorsman, but I doubt he'll ever use this knife, though it's more than up to camp, field dressing and skinning duty.

    I managed to get a decent convex grind on it. The spine jimping is 7 slots and 6 pegs: "76", a favorite number of mine. The 1095, Rc 58 (confirmed via lab test) edge is a razor. :D

    I tried the yellow G10 scale spacers and learned a lot there. Not as easy as I thought. The scales are stabilized, curly maple burl finished in oil and carnauba wax. The pic doesn't do them justice.

    My hand sewn leatherwork is basic, but durable. :D

    I'm still working on metal finishing, so please excuse the scratch. It's intended to be a "user", but it still bugs me, though Jim would want it this way.

    Nice work!

    My wife's best friend from high school has a kid, and my wife is tutoring him in art, and as sort of a fun thing after the lesson, we work in the shop together. We've been working on a camp knife for him.

    Scandi grind, definitely too big for usefulness, but what else do you expect from a 14 y.o.? It's been fun for both of us, although I have to admit it's been quite difficult for me to not step in and do too much for him.

    I'll post pix when it's done.

    With till you have it in hand and see and feel the quality. I am completely honest in saying it FEELS like a $500.00 custom folder.

    Here's my daily blade, a Benchmade Mini Auto Presidio. Its served me well for a few years, and is my favorite utilitarian knife I own. The KA-BAR is a sentimental gift from a friend who I grew up and served with.[​IMG]

    Just picked up a Cold Steel Roach Belly at Sportsmans for $14,95 since I found a 10 dollar certificate in the parking lot....

    My Benchmade 275 Adamas arrived yesterday. Designed in collaboration with custom maker Shane Sibert, it is indeed a beasty of a blade. As you can see, it totally overshadows my Ritter Grip.:D
