Yes I stopped bleeding, at least it was not my trigger finger. who knew a 360 was a fillet knife in disguise

As far as orders go, I am HOPING to be caught up by New Year, and then I am going to be making batches of about 10 knives, of one model, at a time. I am going to see how that goes before I decide about taking orders.

Yep - it "looks" like a chisel grind, but that may just be the hollow-grind giving that appearance of depth. VERY good looking knife, though! Your stuff is definitely getting better and better.

FOR TEXAS!

Here is a small tanto that a guy name Joe has been waiting patiently for about 15 years or seems like it.....



Hollow ground blade, flat ground point
7.75" OAL
3.5" blade
CPM3V tool steel, .200 thick, matt finish
Camo brown G10
7.5 oz
This is the first of the 3V batch....

Sometime waiting is good, since I can make better knives now than when I took the order!

That is really georgeous. Any idea when the production models will be comming out? Or have you scrapped that idea?

I just need to figure out how to clone myself or train monkeys and then will be cranking out blades!

Here is a new design that I am still tweaking



3.5 " blade of 5/32" O1 tool steel parkerized
7.75" OAL
thin textured Coyote brown handle

it is a nice slim package still working on a name.

the young PJ who has the straight spined version posted a while back was supposed to help with a name, but I know he has more important things going on!

I REALLY like that blade shape--looks like it would be a very usable hunting knife since it's not too long as to be unwieldy and not so thick that it's overbuilt for gutting/skinning...

..............................................

yep I built this one as a all around using knife. still working on refinements, but this size is about as big as it will get.

Going to do some tantos with this same overall design. maybe a warncliff and a clip point too. if i ever have time...

I was lucky enough to snag this blade off of a Facebook post...I'll throw a review up when I have it in-hand.

For those who care about such things, trainers are in the mix for STX and Pikals, aluminum and G10. Not going too crazy on the fit and finish, but they are quality and nicer than anything I have personally seen.

basically 3/16" thick 6160 aluminum all edges rounded off, handles glued and pinned. same profile as the real deal, with no texturing.



Thats all for now!

Call it the Guardian, as that is the callsign they are using downrange.


Nice. maybe "GuardianAJ" (to put a tweak on it and give a nod to a non-PJ that has the first production one... just a thought).
Here's a couple new ones....




Utility Tanto
5/32" thick O1 tool steel, Textured G10 handles with black liners
3.5" blade
7.625" OAL



Something a little different. I wanted to make a fighter suggestive of the original tanto style, which turned out more of a blunt bowie style point, but I am still happy with the result.
3/16" thick O1 tool steel, parkerized, hollow ground with swedge
Black canvas micarta handles, palm swell/contoured and textured
Blade 5.5"
OAL 10.75"

Semper 360

I finalized the design on the new utility blade, at least for the drop point standard version. I am happy how this one came out.

The new designation is RD, for Ridin Dirty....don't know why, just is...

The NF logo, for never forget, is by DUke and came out great.






O1 tool steel, 5/32" thick,parked
3.75" blade, 7.50" OAL

The handle fits completely in the palm of my medium size hand.

This one will get a leather cross draw sheath when I figure out how to run the new machine.

I have some of these in S35VN stainless that I am looking forward to finishing.

Semper 360

I want an RD! Amazing work! I think this would make an excellent EDC blade on my belt, no?

Look what showed up at my house today!










With my Strider DB/LE








The Seax feels awesome in the hand, this is a fantastic knife Tom.

According to the paper work I think I have "NF" knife number 1, so be jealous Smile

Mods if these pics are still too big let me know and I'll resize them.

I was about convinced that a SEAX was the next Halloran to come live at my house - I think that just changed...
...and you are...who?
I got home today from shift and my Seax was in the mailbox! Damn, I didn't really understand what people were saying about how it feels in the hand until I held it. Absolutely fantastic. I have small hands and it is still perfect. It's extremely well balanced and comfortable to hold in both forward and reverse grips. It looks the same as KCBRUIN's above except the handles are in OD (excellent photos I won't even try...). Tom is at the top of my list if I ever need any more sharp things.

Basic black goes with everything...

Still liking the Never Forget logo that Duke came up with for me. I originally intended for it to represent the the blood of the wounded and fallen, but I ave since decided it can mean whatever the beholder wants.



Semper 360

Definitely liking the grip.

HA! I just saw this...that knife is super awesome and is now the work knife...AND it's got my last name on it...how cool is that?

" I want half of you over here, half of you over here and the other half of you over there..."

Been a while since I posted anything new.

Nothing earth shattering, just a new variation of the STX. Basically the same knife in a double hollow ground config with a pointy flatground tanto tip.

This one is in 5/32" 35VN stainless.

very comfortable in forward or reverse grip, and it excells in pikal style. Fuckin A...

the edges are about .015" thick

Semper 360

Here is a F.U.K. that I am real happy with.

5" blade of .200" thick S30V, HT by Bos, 9.875" OAL

carved coyote g10 handles, black oxide blade finish

 

 

been real busy with a lot of smaller knives so it was nice to take a break and do something a little bigger.

 

 

Semper 360

Damn Tom, already beating myself up for missing that last 360, just makes the wait seem longer w/ these pics.

 

Lloyd when I see you @ Paul's next wknd., mind bringing all your samples of Tom's work so I can coon finger 'em?
