You really can't beat that 01 Enzo blade for a quick and high quality project.

My next set of made knives are cut out of D2 and have started the final profile before sending off for heat treating.

Remind myself to learn heat treating.

Great looking knives! I really like the tweed micarta. Looks like a colored carbon fiber material almost.

Thanks, I had a good bit of the tweed from back when I built and repaired a couple of tube guitar amps. The older cabinets used to be covered in tweed. I thought is was so cool I even rescaled my SAK with it.

Ps. I can't wait to see how the Nessmuks turn out! That blade design will be what I pick up next!
