Ha! I like that! :thumbsup:

I'm only on my third almost completed knife in the 2015 lineup of Filekniven 3.0 (TM) ;D and I've learned enough to know that... well I've a lot to learn! Just tonight, doing some hard-core serious research (watching youtube videos!) I watched most of my 'technique' get smashed to bits! lol!

Nah, I'm still pining for another Redlore!

Another?! Most of us still don't have our first! >:(

I might hold out for a Kanukkniv, though. ;)

Is the brown handle one yours Steve?
 Looks like it has a little more re-curve than Bernie's.
Funny, I ordered a couple sets of those green scales and was thinking they would look good on the Bernie blank I have.
Both look awesome.

I think everyone missed out on this one, it is one of my all time favorites for the scales...

Totally matches the Sangria that you drink Gray :D

Well, mostly because they look perfect. Clean, polished mirror finish... Clean crisp lines. Scales are perfect, both the same and square in the handle, not a trace of a gap anywhere... Honestly, I'm not sure I have the skills, and the patience it would take to make that. I just can't see it.

Red, I'm not flattering you - I own one of your knives - so believe me when I say I WISH I could make a knife like that.

But if you keep saying it, I might start believing it...

You sound just like I did, whining to Trent that I couldn't do it as good as him. It doesn't happen overnight, but if you stick with it, you can get there ;)

Now he is better than I am! Anyone can do anything as long as they focus and practice. Steve put a lot of hours and research into his skill.

Thanks Steve, I'll toast her with a cold glass of said sangria when she gets here.
I gave away a lot of knives this year to all the grandkids and some to friends that I had collected from several makers, but this one they will have to pry from my cold dead hands.
Good job and please take a few photos with the whole package when done, your photos way exceed mine and I want to show it off.

I went right out to my young apple tree and trimmed some limbs off, debarked and made some feather sticks, got it all dirty and sappie.
cleaned the blade, hit the strop.

so is the Mick Spain blank up next?  I remember that one now that I think about it.  It should make for a decent scandi for someone.  Also did you, or are you planning to test it's heat treat?  Would be curious just to see where it was as to how good of a job Mick did on it.

I did test it, its HRC58. I had no doubt, Mick is a really good maker. And yes, that one is up next, then it's on to custom orders that have been waiting over a year now. I wanted to get these blanks done so I could use them to work out any rust I may have gotten taking such a long break. I am feeling pretty good about them now, so after this Mick blade, I will be doing SIXFOOTER's knife, and a couple more. Then I will start taking orders again.
