My new Breeden knife, Tessa
« on: January 12, 2013, 06:22:12 PM »
What happens when you take the day off work and travel to Fairbury NE to hang out with Bryan Breeden? When I did it I got a cool new knife.
After talking about design and use.
He did a little cutting, grindind

So far

some more grinding and heat treat.

After lunch and talking about everything from knives to the Marines to politics and TV.
Add some handles and pants

Meet Tessa


I have enough paracord on the sheath to make a bow for a bow drill, make a lanyard , strap it to a pack or wear it horizontal on my belt.( a little long for that)
Bryan used a solid  7/16 rod for the center pin then dished it out to make the "Breeden divot" ( patient pending )  :)
Works well

Thanks, sorry about the pic's I was trying to save a little room. I could make them bigger.
The knife is great. I am not one for " one knife for everything" but for me this is close.
What a great day to be outside.

Awesome looking blade and it's cool how you came across it!  I take it you know the maker, or how did this come about?  That's the first "while you wait" build I've heard of, very cool!

I have one of Bryan's knives, it's a beast.

Very cool to get yours built during a visit, you can't ask for a better turn around time than that.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Yes it's O1 steel. I have met Bryan once before. We also talked on the phone and emailed. It was a planed trip. I knew what I wanted. We made a few changes in shop. Very happy with Tessa.

Handle is a little longer then I wanted at first but we talked about winter use and gloves.

Great looking knife.  I have been lucky enough to have been gifted a Breeden Pathfinder and I love it.  It is a real quality knife and holds an super edge.  I bet yours will, too.

Hi all,

Thanks for the kind  words all, on lgm's Tessa knife.

It was  pleasure have you come to the shop and getting to  chat with ya through the day.
Chris and I meet about 20 years back we both worked at the same place.
When Chris pulled up to the shop and we seen each other I could tell he was thinking the same
thing I was.  I know this guy from some where  lol  I asked him if he worked and that place and he said
yep.   Well anyways the rest is history as they say.


Some very cool pics you posted and it looks like you are getting some good woods time with Tessa.

Bryan

Hi guys! I recently found this forum.
Knives that are presented here are very steep. 8)
Did you tell where the topic discussed on the correct sharpening of knives?
Thanks. ;)

Yes, English as a second language and I must use translation software :(
I will try to re-ask the question....
I can not find the topic, where possible, have information about enchanting knives.
i'am sorry for my bad bad bad English

I'm pretty sure he's asking about sharpening knives.  Tim, there are many threads on sharpening.  Go to the search bar at the top and type in "sharpening."
