    David Mary Titanium Machete

    It's fully functional and ergonomic, and sharpened to where it needs to be for what I think will be an outstanding trail clearing machete.

    David Mary Titanium Machete

    I have received a billet of BT23 Russian body armor alloy, hardened by our very own @Mecha of Mad Science Forge. I am using it to make a two handed slightly upswept machete. It's almost done. I'll show pics here, and then take it out for a bash in the bush and share the footage ASAP.

    Tool marks

    I'm a maker so finishing a production knife myself is no big deal. If I ended up with that knife, it would take me a few minutes with my grinder on the spine, a dremel and sanding drums on the underside of the handle, then hand sand the whole thing with worn ceramic belts.

    Absolutely I can, so I guess that puts you at third in line, leaving three that are still open to be claimed.

    Belt Carry for Big Fellas

    I'm sure there is some mutant somewhere who can do it. Maybe a bunch right on the forum? I mean some guys rip phonebooks in half, and others can hammer nails into wood with heavily padded parts of their own bodies. I know I've never done any of these three things. I got about 25% through...
