300 year old Sticky Pine Knives project

Received a piece of 300 year old sticky pine from Andy the Axeman. I decided I will cut it in two for two full tang knives. I will make one Bowie for myself and a Nessmuk for Andy. Attached herewith the progress pics. I have forged the Bowie from an old file and the Nessmuk from a Land Cruiser suspension. I have finished the Bowie off with a Bleach etch to give it an aged look, and it will receive an iron guard and pommel. Will update this blog with progress pics as I go…

What is under the CRKT Bear Claw scales?

I've always wanted a CRKT Bear Claw since I saw it long ago. I was into knives and martial weapons since I was a kid, but when I saw a hawkbill blade somewhere and then eventually learned of the Bear Claws and then the Karambit, i knew I wanted one of each.

But what happened was I skipped the Bear Claw as I couldn't find any here in the Philippines. I was able to find a Karambit quickly enough, A Mantis Cinq3, then I found a decent hawkbill blade, a knockoff…

I have wanted to join the club for years, but just didn't ever make it happen.

When I was a teen my mother was going to pay for my membership as a Christmas gift, but I wanted something else more that year. So it just never happened. The Club was pretty new back then.

For all the "Smiths" out there - - -

My dad had a story that he'd tell me;
