Thanks for looking.

You're a talented man! I personally actually like the stock handle the knife came with and the lightness it brings. Different strokes...

Very cool sharpening notch! How did you go about that?

I see you went with the refined finish. What progression and angle? Did you worry about the naysayers warning about refined finishes for steels with high carbide volumes?

Cheers,

Rick

Nice work Rook! I've never been enamored with the Manix. Nice size, good steel and all. I just can't get past that button / slider or whatever its called release / lockup system.

Rookie, this is beautiful as usual. What are you going to do with those scales now? I sense another project soon!

Used a Dremel tool for the ramped notch (ramping it prevents snagging).

If you look carefully at the last pic, you will see the tiny 500# micro bevel.
