Tom,
You hit it right with the "Gunny" as it is one sweet knife. I'd be in for the raffle too. Wink
But if I lose and it goes to someone who needs it, then that is G2G with me.

Besides I could always hire you to make me up one for the Hog hunters in Florida. No custom knife makers here in Guam. Had several guys check out the photos of the P-fighter and the Nessmuk that you made for me. I gave them your web site info. Good luck with the house hunt. Cool

FWIW, I think thats a great idea, will give a chance for a larger number of folks to give $$ for a good cause (and a chance at a great looking blade). I agree the timeline for a "SHOT auction" is to compressed.
the plan was to just display the knife at SHOT. I dont think thats gonna happen.

My new plan is to do the drawing April 19, here in MT, at the local PD, drawing to be done by a wounded service member. I should be able to get TV news coverage. It is gonna be a blast. I just have to iron out a few things.

Tom,

Just received both the MFK and the STX and I'm more then a little impressed. Pulling the MFK out of its sheath I immediately noted the balance and weight. I was expecting something heavier but its perfect. I've bought more then a few customs over the years and I'm hands down impressed with your work. The green scales are very nice! These are CRAP iPhone pictures and do not even remotely do these justice. I'll need to get my camera back from a friend and take some REAL pictures. Thanks!

For those considering.....pull the damn trigger. You'd pay much more from MANY makers for the work Tom is producing.

Hey, Tom. Glad to see you on the Forum. I'm a proud owner of a 5" Grunt and it is a great knife. It slices, dices, chops and cuts like a much larger knife due to the unusual, yet very practical blade geometry. If my Grunt can't do the job, the job requires a chainsaw or an axe. Mine came with a first-rate kydex sheath with tec-lok.

Once I figure out how to post pics, I'll post a photo-review of the cutting, chopping and batoning I did with my Grunt.
Here's another Tom Halloran knife in action.




I've had my double edged Pikal for about a year and a half now, and it is still wickedly sharp and tough as nails. I've used it for opening all sorts of cans, prying wood lids off of flare/ammo crates ect. while I've scratched the hell out of the shot peened finish, the knife continues to impress. You hold it and you know you've got a knife thats made to work in your grubby little paws.

My only mistake with Tom's knife was in ordering only one. I choose a knife that was very dedicated in its use, its a fighting knife, and not a multi use knife.

But thats an issue I'm hoping to resolve very shortly.

Thanks again Tom, I have a couple other photos of it I'll be sending your way shortly.
It has been a while since I posted a new design. This one is on its way to Afghanistan to a fellow LFer.



Nothing earth shattering, just a shorter version of the MFK, with a different handle shape.

Blade is 4.625" OAL is 9.5"

I dont seem to be getting tired of this blade shape Wink

Now back to the regularly scheduled program....

Any idea of the weight of this one with sheath? I love my Randall, but I keep looking for something lighter for backwoods use.

Even though these drive me crazy to make, after doing so many combat/utility knives; I sure do like the finished product. Too bad I dont have time to make myself one for this years archery season.

So I guess you won't be knocking out dozens of them? Bummer.

I'll post pics pic when I get it, unless you beat me to the punch. You've gone way above and beyond the call of duty, and I do appreciate it. I'll have to put you on my Christmas card list for this one!

FOR TEXAS!
