all done just finnished , just need to buff the sheaths a touch in the morning when the sheen has dried , 4 knives finnished and sheath in a day , can do better !!

oh well thats a few more out the way bit of luck the other handle materials will arive tommorow , and i will get a go at this big game hunter knife , bar a few requests for small paunchers again i think i will alsmost have caught up . maybe one or two bush crafters to do but if you guys can wate a week i will have my own design back from laser cutting and that will help me alot . i hope you like um i have ordered 30 !!!

its nice to know they are ariving on mass ..

sorry to anyone that is waiting iv worked my self sick i feel so ill , iv done full days into arly hours a few time this week and its caught up with me , i found myself driving home from sheffield last night a 1.30am after a full day in the work shop with liam of this site .

so as a result im going to have to say therewill be no progress til monday now as i have a bitch to take to hull to the stud tommorow am then my son is visiting all afternoon , and as i only see him for a few hours a month it come first . then sunday i ahve anothert knife maker coming over to borrow some equipment for the day , so all in all its a no go , if i force myself the chances are i will cut off a finger or bugger up what im making .

 

as for materials i love buffalo horn micarta in any material , the laminate resinated woods G10 , dymond wood etc and stabilised wood .

i envy anyone that can work wood all my life i wanted to be able to , its like my kriptonite , i can work stone, metal, masonry and synthetics but the medium wood ..... we just go to war .

the above materials are superb in my mind its better for me as its all very tough water proof shock proof take a nice shine and consistant to work , i feel confidant with it and know it will do its job very well and look good .

 

the laser cuts have arrived and they look great , my own design of bushcraft knife is a triumph i think , eligant perposefull and the correct size thicknes and material . it will be one of my top 5 knives i think .

for anyone that has been waiting for one of my bush craft knives will get one of these and i beleave will be very very happy , it has a real classic line and ballance and would look good as a stalkers knife also i beleave , im haveing one as my own knife and will put it through hell to see if its of the right quality .

il load up some pics now for you as an appitite wetter .

all the best , matt.

Well what a day yesterday was!

 

Completed my two hand forged knifes with a good deal of help from Matt.

 

I'll try and get some pics up soon but im chuffed to bits with them, a little bit unique but very very nice and i doubt there will be anything similar for a while, a good couple of days of work in all.

 

Get yourself signed off for a couple of days matey and chill out!
