Halloran Knives

I think that I like this one in particular of all the ones posted.............what was/is the handle material? Any plans to make more of that model? What's the composition of the metal? Forgive me if it was answered in an earlier posting. Thanks
Tom -- I'm with Lloyd and T-Bird. That is one fine looking knife. You're on my list of folks to talk to soon.

Yea baby! Maybe you ought to re-think the whole one of a kind thingee on this model!!! I hoping that the new shop facility goes well for you and look forward to getting a chance to grab one of those hunters in the not too distant future. ..........
now back to our irregularly scheduled program:

here is a slightly different take on my tanto. Nuthin fancy...

1084 steel 1/4" thick
text. coy brown handle
3.5" blade/ 8.5 oal






now if the guy who asked me to make him a tanto would just send me his address I could get rid of this thing Razz

Now that's sexy Tom. Is that a one off or something you regularly do?

Damn, Tom... I figured a few a year, but I guess I'll have to join the Knife-A-Day program. Put me down for one of these too. Nice tanto, by the way.

Frown Sorry, Tom.

Oh, and yes I agree with Nguyen and Jeff; it is amazing. Tom is awesome to work with.

proof that I am still doing something even though the new shop is not up yet. Before we moved I got a bunch of stuff heat treated and ready to finish. This set here is for groomsmens gifts.

Now back to our regularly scheduled nasty parkerized beasts...

I'm going to steal your photo since its much better than what I can do, but that knife has served me everyday for close to 5-6 months now, and other than a little wear on the handle, its no worse for wear after prying open ammo crates, popping a UH-60L door out of its track, and all of the other duties we generally ask of our knives.



That knife, goes literally everywhere I do.
I finally took delivery of this beauty Thursday afternoon.




I LOVE this thing. It's hard to describe how comfortable it feels in the hand, especially for such a serious size knife with a 1/4" thick blade. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect blade if I'd designed it myself.

... oh wait a minute - I DID design it myself! Big Grin

Now I need to go find some 2x4's or unwanted trees to chop up with it.

FOR TEXAS!

unfortunately it is not talib blood, but what can you do...but it is really cool to use your own knife for its intended purpose!

i just had a great day hunting and had the presence of mind to snap a shot of this knife in the middle of its work.

I have not been really doing a lot of hunters, and this one was made at least a year ago for elk, which I have not used it on. Thought it would be a little big for deer at about 5.5" on the blade, but it has worked perfectly.

and to prove that I am an idiot, I shot 2 deer in the bottom of a deep coulee, a mile away from the truck. My partner shot one, and I am whooped!! I ain't as young as I once was, and I sure aint good for 3 but we did it!

I have always enjoyed Tom's knives and have 3 of them so far. Wink But this huge Halloran knife is growing on me! Reminds me of my old carry knife back in the USAF, an old Becker Knife and Tool 7" fighter. I gave my Becker to an young troop at Hurlburt Field after I retired.

But Toms knife has a bigger choil on the front of the handle,which I like on BIG knives as I have a HUGE hand. Tom I sure hope I make it out to visit you in your new shop. Keep on making superior knives for all types of use. Cool Sgt P.
Glad to see you are getting a chance to use your knives Tom! I Can't wait to put one of your Seax's to work when the new shop is rolling!I am looking forward to owning my first TH knife.

Well............here it is 6 mos. later and I still haven't ordered anything.......the 6mos delay thing really puts a damper on the whole immediate gratification impulse. What's the status on the new shop are you up and running and "grinding" them out or should I wait a little longer to place an order for a hunter model and a parkerized beasty boy? The photos of the hunting/archery season have just put me over the edge (pun intended) which hunting models are you going to make? (4 models you referred to)...........thanks for the knife porn!
Looks like we will have the shop sheeted in and roofed by tomorrow. Next big push will be to get electric run over to it and start moving stuff over there.

Everyone has been supremely patient, which I sincerely appreciate, and now that there is some meat in the freezer I can totally concentrate on finishing the shop and getting back to work on some knives.

Everytime I have taken a few weeks off from grinding, I come back with improvements, so I am excited to see what this delay will bring. I have a few new designs in the works and will be continuing with the proven performers.

This will be the first dedicated shop I have had and I am really really really pumped about getting back to work!!!

Semper 360

I'm envious, nothing in the freezer yet and will be going out today to see if I can arrow one for the butcher tonight.........wish I had me a genuine Halloran hunting knife.........I'm sure my chances for getting one today would greatly improve! Good luck with the home stretch on the building and will look to the spring to let you talk me out of my hard earned dollars!!!

Looks amazing.

So I learned today I am an idiot and dont understand how email works.

If you ever sent me an email thru my official website and you never got a reply it is because I am stupid.

I today learned if I just clicked "reply" to your email, it just goes back to my inbox. My apologies to anyone who thought I ignored them.

If anyone has an order in and has not recently heard from me to confirm that you still want it, give me a shout and I will try very hard not to be an idiot this time (but there is no guarantee for future non-idiocy implied or otherwise.....)

That being said, the new shop is done enough to get back to doing the lords work of making sharp pointy things.
