    Nice looking pieces! I Love that second one!

    There is someone in general chat asking for input on an edc fixed blade.

    I left a post in the thread with an older edc model shown and it's stats, as well as a message directing him Your way.
    These knives seem like they would be up his alley. Check the thread out if you want to send him a visitors message,

    Are these the last of the Hellcat bearing knives, or just the latest? ie have you now used up all of the bearings?

    Damn, I didn't read it like that!
    I Hope not! I will be doing some scrounging for funds for that second one if that is the case!

    It's been a while since i forged one of these...
    I don't weld them to a handle any more, so there is no ugly part at the end, and i get some more material to use.
    Heat treated and ready for handle work.

    Can't wait to see the vintage micarta on this one Dalibor! Ladies and gentleman, Dalibor has really developed world-class knives. I have a forged clever from him and it is a laser and finely constructed. Thanks my friend!
