Thanx Matt!!!
                       The Blade reminds me of a Skinny Wilkinson Sword Dartmoor, without the hollow handle, probably because of it's cant. She is 6mm Thick of O-1 Steel, feels OUTSTANDING in the hand, with plenty of heft, and GREAT balance! 8) I'm looking forward to putting her through some tests and see how she performs! :) I'll post what I find out, and I'm betting it will be good news! :cheers:

 Thanx Trentu!!!
                            It's a Nice Blade, and the Sheath is really well thought out too! 8) We will see how the Epoxy Paint wears upon use. If it does, I'll just strip the paint off and go ala natural,...with a coat of oil! I'll keep ya posted on it's performance, as it looks like it just wants to be used, just like Red's Blades! :cheers:

I'm glad you like the sniper knife, the sniper is the knife that gives me more work to do, has lots of details if I make a mistake ruin all the work, but I did it with pleasure.
Thanks for post images.

Question ...


Is that groove/slot for a firesteel, or a cord/strap/belt cutter (rescue hook)?

It's looking good, Remo!
Yep Matt, I like it like this! :) To be fair, the Black Epoxy paint was very durable, and was not coming off at all. It would scuff a little bit when working with the Blade. A little bit of Oil on her, and she cleaned right up! 8)
I've had decent success with Mustard Patina's before, so I thought I would go that route.  :cheers:

                 Mario's intention for that slot, was to serve as a Strap/ Belt Cutter. 8)

Thanx Zammer!!! 8)
                                                He Did a Nice Job on this Blade I'm thinking! :)
It probably took quite a few operations to build up that Blade, with all of it's intricacies. Also, @ 6mm thickness & in O-1, it is quite a substantial Blade! :thumbsup:

Is a knife for life, you'll never break it, and it is so easy to sharpen this steel just a bit of sandpaper 500 and become new again.
