I've been having a lot of fun with these window knives, and have another half dozen in the works.

I saw your WIP video on this and thought it looked really cool. Nice to see how it turned out.

Beautiful knife, well executed; but I have to ask why you call it a tanto?

I remember the craze a couple of decades ago where *everything* was a tanto---in the Knives annual they even had a "viking tanto" and so am a bit gunshy of the term applied to blades.

... it vaguely rhymed with LEGO... haha

That's a better justification than most. :lol:

Another beautiful knife Theo, I love the contrast between the edge and shell.

I'm thinking folk making RR spike KSOs should call them Tontos. Tonto's knife was forged from a RR spike taken from the evil robber baron's rail road. Just thought of that and I needed to get out or I'd forget it as soon as I started reading the next post. 

What's next?

Really cool Theo! it's sort of funny that they are legos, with the blue under the wrap looks at first glance to be gemstones or something :)  Man would a nicely laid out feather look great in one of those handles.

Frosty, there are a lot of window blades with animal heads and wacky integral guards coming soon, just you wait ;)

Das, Legos are precious to me, haha. I love the feather idea, gotta try that.

Amen to that. Lego's were my entire childhood, and probably the reason for what little engineering skills I have now haha. Beautiful blade by the way. Looks really clean.

Man, Theo, you keep one upping yourself dude, another beauty!

BTW a couple weeks back, they finally aired your episode of FIF up here, congrats on the win! It was awesome to watch, even though I read all the spoilers on here.
