Tanto sharing for Bryan W

This is a Tanto that was given to me by the widow of my best friend that died a few years ago.  He loved the Japanese swords, and unfortunately I know little of its history.  I did have an expert look at it, who determined it was made from a cut down (or broken) WWII Japanese sword.  The polishing is not correct, the shape of the blade tip is a bit off, but the parts are all authentic and someone put a lot of time into this piece.  The collar was noted as being very…

Motley

I assembled and disassembled it about 198769312 times. But it came out really interesting and a bit different from it's brothers.

The steel is 1.2379 (D2), 61 HRc, OAL - 165mm, blade only ~75х25х4mm. The handle is white corian, composite wood, acacia and stainless steel and brass spacers.

Wenge(r)

Another tiny one. This one went away before I had the chance to make some photos, so I use photos made from the new owner.

The steel is 1.2379 (D2), 61 HRc, the handle is wenge.

The name is untranslatable pun - in Bulgarian "wenge" is the wood and when you add "r" (wenger) it means "warlock".

Plain or Fancy ?

I like a great looking knife , I really do .

Just as with most people a fancy set of handle scales or a little damascus really get's my attention . I have one or two knives that are very attractive and I wouldn't part with them for any reason , but I pick up and carry the same few knives all the time . With the greatest respect to the talented guys who have designed my users they do have one thing in common , they are Plain !

I never really thought of this until I started…

The Wasp

After a long break - I sold my appartment and moved out, I started working again. 

This one is ordered as a gift - first knife for a newbie hunter. The customer - a friend of the hunter chose the shape of the blade and left me to choose the handle materials. At this time I was drawn by the Dark side of the Force, so I decided to put black corian and yellow and black composite wood and black fiber spacers. The steel is 1.2379 (D2), hardened up to 61 HRc. OAL - 230mm, blade -…

Remington Bullets

I might not catch many peoples attentions here with this, but I am looking for a few Remington Bullet Knives. The original bullets from the 20s-30s. I am currently stuck on 11 and looking for the remaining 3. R1613 with bullet shield, R1263 two blade drop point, R4466 the baby muskrat. These are the 3 I am looking for at this time. I'd still be interested in seeing any other original bullets if someone has a few for sale. 

Thanks in advance!
