Soldier steel: A build-along

Postby Storm Crow on Mon Feb 15, 2010 11:00 pm

A soldier who saw some of my knives posted on this forum contacted me about making a pair of knives for himself and his brother. He's headed for Afghanistan at the end of the month. His brother's already there.

I'd have to resize all of my pictures to post the thread here, and that takes bloody forever with Photobucket, so I'll just post a link to the thread about it on Zombie Squad and bump this thread here whenever I update with new pictures over there.

It's been updated.

Clint, the profile is based on the Randall Model 1, though in practice, I think I have a longer, flatter belly as it approaches the tip. The rest of the construction is totally different than the Model 1.

Really nice work Storm Crow. I'm very impressed.
