Looks great!

You showed me a pre-pre-prototype of the concept sometime back in late '06 or early '07. One of those ideas which had me hitting my forehead saying "why the hell didn't I think of that?" Absolutely farkin brilliant.

Very nice job forming the thumb stud to appear as a primer surrounded by a case head. I like the slight recurve to the belly of the blade, and the use of Torx screws to enable user dissassembly for cleaning.

As usual, your handle grooves look like a sure-grip is assured, and the deep cut behind the pivot combined with the file work above the thumb stud are well thought out.

Plus, as usual, you make a knife big enough for those of us with big mitts.

Very well done, Spencer!

Excellent folder Spencer Just what I need for my series 70 Colt.


Now for the hands, bag balm works great for frostbite on the hands.... Smilebut hard work really takes it's toll on the mitts.

I'd better get in line for one of your SAR 1911 TDT or I'd wind up with #3,0003 CoolSgt P.
Maybe I am a dumbass and missed the info (yes I know I am already a dumbass)... but how much is this puppy going for once you starting selling them off?

I don't even want to know how much time you put into getting that 'just right', Spencer. Great work. Love the blade shape, and the stout size.

Just a question, Spencer, does it have a double edge?

Thanks in advance.
From the photos, no, the false edge has not been sharpened.

I read this post about an hour after I posted our own fixed blade w/bushing wrench.

There's no comparison. Your blade is amazing!

Back to the drawing board for me....on to the Blade Show for you.

FYI -- I AM NOT THE ONE SELLING THIS KNIFE ON BLADEFORUMS.

I simply saw it was for sale on Bladeforums and thought folks here would be interested.

My apologies!

Walrus, thanks man. I am on Spencer's list now.

Boy am I glad too! The 1911 TDT is what the "doctor" ordered for us with HUGE mitts!

And about checking out Spencers hands, well I come from Vermont, hometown where the Mt. Infantry school is in Jericho. Many of you know it personally.

I didn't get frostbite in VT, hell I had to travel half way round the world to freezin cold S.Korea to get it. So bag balm is a friend to people who have frostbite in their hands & feet.
