Part II of Paris's knife

Made really good progress today. Knives are ground out, handles are shaped and ready to finish out tomorrow. Did I mention how much I hate carbon fiber...stuff is really bad for you...but dam it always looks good.

Laying out the handles

Drilling and counterboring

First fit of scales

Getting down at the grinder....bad weather out the door

Almost there

Handles cut and fit

See ya tomorrow for finish.

New work in progress

Yesterday I got started on a order that is special to me for a close friend of 20+ years John. He ordered a knife for his son Paris who happens to be a squared away 12 year old.

After discussing some options and what he might use it for we settled on one of my mainstay models the CPMD2 DP except I made his a CPMD2 DPM the "M" stands for Modified. The CPMD2 stands for "Crucible Particle Metallurgy" it is some of the hardest and best edge holding steel on the market today, not quite a stainless steel but it does have a degree of rust Resistance built in ( I prefer my personal knives to made in this steel ).

The handle will be coarse texture black carbon fiber which is top shelf, tough and very good looking material. I will also be building a fire starter and integrating it into the sheath. Paris is a member of a wilderness group in the San Francisco area and they get cut loose to go adventure in the vast coastal wood of the west coast.

I wish I could be there to see his reaction when he gets his knife which I know he will treasure for life. With his first real knife being a custom makes me feel good in that a future knife connesuir is born, which in turn will keep the whole cycle alive.

More to follow later, the knife or knives are in the oven getting there second temper and will be ready to grind out later this morning.

Its the knife just below the to large SAR kukri's I am also working.


SAR Global Gear For Sale 22JUL10

This is my gear or "Tool" side of the house or non-knife type objects that I custom make in my shop.

The SAR Eclipse Signal System has proven to be a winner. The tri-angle and SS Dog tag have been effectively tested and used by Private Security Contractors in South Africa and other areas of operation around the world. The farthest signal thus far has been 15 Kilometers or 9 miles. The Tri-Angle and SS Dog tag are in use by the Redmond Oregon Smoke-Jumper Hotshot crews during wild land fire fighting for directing both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft delivering fire retardant, supplies and crew evacuation. This is currently ongoing in wild land fire operations around the entire United States. It is also implemented in gear selection by Master rated divers, Instructors and guides in the Florida Keys diving area.

For the Tri-angle mirror I am currently using 6LA4V Military Spec Titanium, that has a like mirror polish very effective and very light and will not rust in saltwater environments making it a good choice if you will be around saltwater.

The cover is constructed with high visibility "blaze" orange or low key black coarse textured G-10 which is a high impact glass/resin based material. It is resistant to all foreign materials.

The Dog tag version is constructed from 2 USGS Identification tags which are made from high grade stainless steel and very high resistance's to rusting. The mirror tag portion is also almost like mirror polish and very effective.

The Rivit that holds the devices together is a black coated brass and will not rust and I have had no problems with terminal failure when used properly.

The reflective tape applied to these signal device's for night recognition is the best stuff on the current market period.

The White with the honey-comb grid is called SOLAS "Safety Of Life At Sea". USGS approved and rated at 900 candle power reflect ability for night time operations.It also has DAYBRIGHT capabilities.

The Green and Orange with a honey-comb grid is HIGH INTENSITY TYPE III tape. Rated at 250 candle power reflect ability for night time operations also has DAYBRIGHT capabilities.

These devices make great pull tabs on jackets, backpacks and used as a key chain is nice when you misplace your keys. A great tool or gift for anyone that ventures into the Outdoors.

Below is a series of Hair combs I have been making for the last year. They work very well on the hair, beard and moustache. They also can be employed in a defensive manner. The 3/4" tines are very rugged, stiff and pointy but not sharp. I have flown with my comb and cruise through all security checkpoints so far.

I recently sent all three large combs to a friend that is a world class combatives/martial artist in Scotland. He will be testing and providing some video soon.
