Pre-Blade Show commissioned blades


Recommended Posts

The Blade Show approaches with frightening rapidity, as usual.  I have two tables and at the moment nothing ready. 

I did have this 5160 blade, but it sold within a few minutes of me posting it on Instagram.  My wife wasn't too happy about that, but my pickup's transmission decided it needed rebuilt RIGHT NOW and I needed the money.

The rest of these were commissions that I finished up prior to the show.  They're all 80CrV2 steel with Boltaron sheaths.

These two are about 7 1/2" blades.

A 5" blade with retina-searing neon orange over hemp, for a deer hunter who wanted a hi-viz knife handle.

And a blade a bit over 6".

If you wasn't stock for on the table Don't Show It To Anyone Beforhand! :) its hard for me to keep smaller items for on the sales table because as soon as I show someone they want it. 

Awesome blades as usual. The wife will forgive you. .... Eventually. Haha. 

Good luck getting stock ready for the table.

Great looking knives as always. Looking forward to seeing the big blades done. You've developed a signature style. I could probably pick out your knife from a table full of knives forged and finished by other makers. Best of luck at the show.

Thanks, Robert!  Been working on stock removal knives (I have two tables at the show!), got them heat treated today and will be taking them to get Cerakote tomorrow.  While they're gone, I'll work on finishing up the forged blades.

And one more forged blade, deliberately left with as much power hammer texture as possible.
