Re: Throwing more "tech" at the mid-tech tomahawks

Moab - I'll send you a PM.

We did a mostly-successful test with vacuum-forming sheaths this weekend. Hopefully will be able to do some tweaks and further testing later in the week.

Re: Throwing more "tech" at the mid-tech tomahawks

One of my 12" Woodsman 'hawks. 1/4" 80CrV2 steel, Cerakote, and new tan TeroTuf handle slabs. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48794014958_6da088002c_c.jpg hawk04 by James Helm , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48794376996_0c0dd6e9c9_c.jpg hawk05 by James Helm , on Flickr And custom...

Throwing more "tech" at the mid-tech tomahawks

I've been making full-tang tactical tomahawks since 2013, with the prototype process beginning with nylon-handled punched-eye 'hawks extending several years before that. The 'hawks were my first foray into making mid-techs, which I define as using modern manufacturing processes to build small batche...

Forge-finished finery, bush swords, etc.

Been busy banging out bodadacious blades. Here are some recents. 80CrV2 steel, cord wraps, and Boltaron sheaths all around. A biohazard outbreak reaction bush sword and smaller utility knife that went to a repeat customer in Canada. The bush sword has scorched hemp for the main wrap and black paraco...

Re: Massive picture post: whole lotta forged blades

Ok, re: the Green Beret's wakizashi: I'm discussing with him options for setting up on his plate carrier right now, so he's definitely looking at carrying it on deployment.

Re: Massive picture post: whole lotta forged blades

Dabster - I'm not sure if the Green Beret is planning on carrying it on deployment, but I get the impression he is. He ordered it up when he was on deployment, but had me ship it to his US address when I was finished because he was only about a month out from being back home. He was quite happy with...

About to start my next batch when I make it out to the shop today. 91Eunzos - I could probably do a couple of scale-less mid-tech blades for you, but you'd need to find someone to build the scales for you. As I understand it, working mammoth too...

Massive picture post: whole lotta forged blades

It's been a very busy last several months, and while I have produced a good number of blades, I haven't been as active online to post them. So here's most of them from recent months. :D Everything is 80CrV2 steel, with various combinations of paracord and hemp wrapped handles, and Boltaron sheaths e...

Lamb splitter and carcass splitter

A couple of new big blades that got shipped out earlier this month. Two firsts on these: the cord-wrapped one is the heaviest I've made, and the slab handle on the lamb splitter is the longest slab I've ever made. Both of them are forged from 80CrV2 steel with Boltaron sheaths. The wrapped one has a...

Re: ST-1 stabby thing self defense tool

I might experiment at some point down the road to see how a G10 version would hold up, but they are designed with the idea of wearing them on a plate carrier or similar LBE as a backup. The handle on it gives a lot of stability, with the tradeoff of it being wider and a little less concealable. But ...

ST-1 stabby thing self defense tool

On the mid-tech side of things, I came up with a self-defense tool that debuted at Blade Show this summer: the ST-1. They're waterjet cut from 1/4" 4140, ground and heat treated, with a Cerakote ceramic gun coating, with Boltaron sheaths. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4821/46187262272_c0c650c4d6_c....

"Knife or Death" Ronin War Sword

I'm sure some of y'all have seen the new open cutting competition show on the History Channel, "Knife or Death". While I haven't gotten to compete on it (Several "Forged in Fire" competitors, including Rashelle Hams from my episode, have been on. She did quite well.), I did get to be involved in an ...

Re: Knives Illustrated article

Finally got a chance to sit down after doing Blade Show West. Tests on the knife in the article included a wrap durability and retention test of soaking it and the user's hand in a mixture of water, ice, and dish soap. The retention was solid, and the wrap unharmed. The tip was tested with stabbing ...

Re: Blade Show, months later

A better look at the forged blades. All wrapped handles. The cleavers are 5160, the rest are 80CrV2. The hemp wraps were torched prior to being impregnated with epoxy. Sheaths are Boltaron. Especially with the cleavers, I've been working on getting closer to the final shape with my power hammer, Gun...

Blade Show, months later

It has been a very busy summer and I haven't kept things updated as I should. Had an awesome Blade Show this year (first weekend in June! I am way behind!), and two full tables of inventory. This year had the distinction of the *first* show I've ever had a table where I wasn't having to sharpen blad...
