today I just made someone smile. a iraqi war vet, his name is jarrod
he was a MP in the MN NG redbull DIV. mutiple deployments
like everone else, anyhoo I just finished a knife with matching ferro rod
in boxelder, as a thankyou for his service, better than a beer i thought.
and also another neighbors daughter his neice that hunts deer also.
her dad is going to give her the knife opening day this comming season, i wish i could see the smile on her face
when she gets it. i done that one in curly ash. it's really nice when we can make someone happy
do something for them when they never expected it, it made me happy.

Thanks, wolfy. Just playing around and added the lanyard tube instead of a pin but that's a good idea. The Deluxe Model will, of course, cost a lot more. Hahaha.

They're lookin' better all the time, Sarge! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

What's the story on that lanyard hole in #3's handle? 

Colclesser Brothers Deluxe model perhaps? :shrug:

Yeah, we have ol' Rudolph Diesel to thank for the first fire piston. 8)

Hummmm, could be that the fire piston came first?....LOL....

The fire piston may have inspired Rudolf Diesel in his creation of the diesel engine around 1892.[8][9]

Not a lot of knife time lately but I've squeezed in a little time to work on #3. Still need to sharpen it but it's nearly done. Same dimensions as #2. Black walnut scales again with Tru-Oil finish.


Primary difference in #3 (foreground) and #2 (middle) is #3 has cleaner plunge lines, the scales are thinner, and the tang taper is more symmetrical - thanks to some tips from 1066vik. 


I like the scale contour better on #2 (left)...


but the handle thickness on #3 is a little closer to the original.


Balances well


#400 grit satin finish

I've got two more blanks from the same sawblade as #2 and #3. Hopefully #4 and #5 will finish up a little closer to the original.
