Couple small light duty available

Wed Jul 23, 2014 3:15 pm

I have two knives available. All of my knives leave my shop with a hair shaving edge (finished on 10K Imanishi stone). I use West Systems marine grade two part epoxy and SS or brass pins. Both of these knives include sheaths. Any of these items can be returned up to 7 days after being received for a full refund as long as they are in original condition. I will etch my makers mark on right side bevel or engrave my insignia if preferred before shipping.

The sheaths were made by my soon to be wife Tonya :)

Both Knives are AEB-L hardened to RC 60-61 by Peters
OAL= about 8"
Thickness= .110
Cutting edge= about 3.25" and about .010 behind edge.

Mammoth/G10- 120$ + S&H (price includes sheath)

epoxying a layer of mammoth to G/10 was just something I had to do. For me, nothing beats the feel of the old mammoth tusk in hand.

Stabilized River Birch- 80$ + S&H (price includes sheath)
This wood was salvaged from one of the great lakes. This blade has a nice point and scalpel like feel in hand.

Here the sheaths are wetformed and folded over , now drying. Next step is to cut and fit the welts, stitch the belt loop and then the rest of it. My Wife does most of this stuff , she is gettin pretty good at it :)

thanks peepskp,


Here some final pics. The knives are boxed and awaiting USPS. I never get good final pics of my knives b/c we always finish late at night and I have crappy fluorescent lighting and camera..Oh well, these knives are about .010 behind edge with a beefier tip. Edges are finished on my 10K imanishi. Although, many more experienced users than me prefer a 400 grit edge for a utility knife. I like the fine polished edge myself :)
