It's near the end of the post, but the stamp came out great. I was really happy with it. The most exciting part for me when using G-10 for the handle is matching it with paracord. I'm not sure why, but I love that little added piece.
The bone actually is blue on this side, which was actually green in the beginning. On the other side it's like....4 different colors. It's weird and awesome. My next knife is a sword. Short sword. Scimitar. Yeah.
I'm hoping that I can take a better picture than I did of this one. As you can tell from all of my knife pictures, I have trouble taking pictures of larger blades. The scimitar is quite a bit larger than this, so I'm still messing with the pictures. Hopefully I has something good for you guys to look at.
That being said I have something aweeesome lined up for later this week. I'm excited for it, even though it's pretty simple.
Whew! What week. I hope you guys had a great Labor Day weekend. I was wanting to get online, but I really haven't had time lately. I'm trying to work my way around to doing something really fun for October. Something note worthy. heh. Also!!! I've got pictures of my sword now. But~ I won't be sharing them with you guys until October I think. I want it to be one of the many highlights for the month. I didn't put it on my Facebook since people are complaining about it taking me a while to fill orders. :/ Times like that I want to be like~ Art takes time. But, eh. I just want to make awesome stuff for amazing people. You know? Even if it does take me five years.

I've got more knives coming soon. Awesome knives. Great knives. Stupid knives. Everything and anything you could imagine.
I know, I know. Seems like I've been doing a lot of survival knives and stuff lately. I really just want to make....everything! And as long as my friends continue to support me and pointing to expensive knives that they like and getting them for like 1/3 of the price. I'm happy to help.
Plus I like monies.
But in all seriousness. It's really fun making my version of manufactured knives. I thought about picking up a random knife magazine and making every knife pictured in it, just to see what my versions would look like.
That's a lot of work though. ;_;
Anywho. I'm pretty exhausted. Also, if you've ordered a knife from me before the middle of April, then it's been shipped. If it's been since the 15th-til now. Then chances are it hasn't been. I don't know why I suck either. >.< But! I plan on having the rest of April filled by the end of this week.
At least that's what my insomnia tells me.
Then!!!! I will have Tomahawks fo sales. Gosh. I'm excited.
Really wish I would have picked a different background to use. lol. I mean I always like it when I'm looking through the masses of backgrounds I have, yet every time I take the picture it reminds me of vomit.
Probably not a good thing to think about when looking at a picture of your own work. Yet, it happens a lot to me.
I wanted this knife to have a frontier/pioneer/period style feel. I do however like my own touch to my knives. I want to be able to tell just by looking that I made the knife (in a good way preferably). I went with a copper textured guard, along with some flame/curly/fiddleback maple. Which ever you prefer to call it. I choose a horseshoe rasp, because lets face it that is sort of my thing. Turning junk into more junk! Who doesn't need more junk? I do. You do.
We all do.
I hope that you guys have a great 4th of July. I know I will be. Steaks cooking atop a forge, is there anything more health than that?
