Thank you for the reply! I hadn't thought about grinding it in that manner. Thank you very much.
I would like to again express how much I appreciate @Daniel Fairly Knives. I first contacted him straight out of the blue about 2 years ago asking if he would let me collaborate on a few of his knives. Much to my amazement, he agreed. We did 3 knives together, and I consider that one of the formative events that helped me make a mark with my knife handle making endeavors. Daniel is absolutely a class act, generous with his time and information, and makes some fantastic blades. His style really appeals to me. When he agreed to do this project, I was again amazed, and even more so when the knife came home. He's a hell of a guy. Please check out his work. My knife doesn't even begin to showcase his talent!
Well... here I go again.
I had a 4.1 (new spec) and then sold it, which I regretted. I recently traded my way back into one, and last night I started into a set of Koa slabs that should match the ones on my old spec 4.1 (these came from the same slab I brought home from Hawaii).
I got them drilled and the outline roughed in last night. Also got the finger pocket dialled in. I'll keep you posted as I go.
For all the advantages of synthetic materials nothing brings out the beauty of that steel like fine wood and leather. A joy to see--I need to hold it.
Anyone know of a place to buy scales? I am looking for one 4.7, and possibly a 5.1
@ATJ999 I imagine you have checked on the S!K web site. Additionally, there was a thread around here some time ago for extra S!K supplies (fasteners, sheaths, handles) - you could post in that thread. There is also the Facebook fan page, you could post what you are looking for.
Apart from that, I only remember one other guy who does handles in materials - I want to say it was @Hale Storm but I don't remember for sure.
Ok thanks, I will take a look, thanks again!
@TRfromMT this is great to see! As I always am with your work, I'll be eagerly watching for updates
Hoping to sneak out to the shop a little this weekend
Absolutely Awesome. I like all of them, but I am really partial to this 4.7 how it kind of fades to the rear. NICE!
I managed to get back in the shop today. It's been awhile but I got the 4.1 handles polished up and the first coat of oil on them. They'll be on the knife in another few days.
Some of the best yet! Koa is all that and then some.
Finished up the new spec 4.1 handles. Little side by side comparison shot for you. Low light, so only so-so look at the figure, but you get the idea...
Adjectives are failing me Tony. Just excellent my friend
^That. Flat out beautiful.
Super cool. Very talented.
I completed the set and put some Koa on the 4.7. These are more marbled than the tight curl I normally use. All three if these came from the same slab. Lots of variation.
Thanks for looking. Merry Christmas, guys.
That is a beautiful set of knives!
@TRfromMT those are gorgeous handles. I don't know if I would have guessed that they all came from the same slab. Keep up the incredible work
Just added a Sagewood Gear sheath to finally complete this piece...
