I’ve come to really appreciate Osage Orange. It’s a unique wood. The very center is pithy. The outer white wood is as soft as pine. The orange heartwood is so durable it’s legendary .. literally. Documented cases of Osage Orange fence posts…Continue

After a bit over a yr & a half of constant use .. the spring broke..The closed OAL of 3.58” is about what I consider ideal for pocket carry. The blade steel has proven itself. And .. I’d already put some time into this one when I reversed the…Continue

Saw this great piece of work and I am looking for some advice on repairing the pin on an Al MAR OSS model. The wire cutter portion the pliers grip is loose.  Does anybody know who might handle this kind of muti-tool repair?

Thanks in advance

Im not sure if its an improvment either but there are a lot of those alloy SA knives, now he has a unique knife. Very well done.

If I was your Shop teacher I would give you an A+ for that project.

Especially nice work on those pins! If I were the owner of that knife I would be very pleased.

One of the more fiddly projects I have taken on. Is it an improvement? I trust the owner thinks so.
My first time ever with Micarta which was interesting and as always I learnt heaps along the way.
