    Dan,
    I have sent a few emails in regards to my deposit for my nessmuk. I would like my deposit refunded ASAP. I do not mind waiting for a knife. However when I am told that something will be ready the next week and it doesn't happen and no updates are given it gets a little frustrating.

    That's the way it is with Dan and the reality is most custom makers who are in demand take a longtime to get a knife from. I have been on this list for over a year because this is actually the 2nd version of the list but in that time I have received 6 other Koster knives. I'm always getting a knife in the mail and one of these days it will be another Nessmuk. One thing is for sure I don't want a rushed product and if it takes awhile to get it so be it. 3v knives aren't exactly plentiful so I'll wait.

    Just FYI for anyone watching/waiting....these things are BEEFY.

    I'm going to go get a spine shot of one of them so you'll have a better understanding. ;)

    Holy crap they look awesome! Thick ass 3V...doesn't come much tougher than that. The double red liners really stand out against the stag scales. I'm looking forward to this one, thanks Dan!

    Hey Dan, do you leave the spine rough on these for striking a fire steel?
    Thanks

    I leave them squared between the handle and the "hump" of the blade. I do a little bit of rounding over right where the handle stops at the ricasso (top and bottom) and then on the hump - for comfort reasons. Other than that, the rest of the spine is left square for striking a firesteel. That said, "square" does not mean it has a burr. You cannot cut yourself on a properly squared spine. It takes a fine touch to get this right. ;)

    Dan, I'm just curious if there will be any done in 1095?

    I'm out of 1095 for now - might do more later this year.


    I did more work on these again today - soooooo close to being done!

    I finished them all this morning and the ones with sheaths have already been picked up by my leather guy.

    I managed to ship one out and am waiting to hear back from elfruhike on shipping.

    Glad to see these heading out!! :thumbup:

    Oops!

    When I called my leather guy he was literally 4 minutes away from my house (usually takes 30-60 min to get here, plus needs a couple days notice). He came by and got the knives and is now gone. And I forgot to get pics.

    These turned out so nice, though...that I'll definitely be making some nice high-res pics before they leave - guaranteed. Especially the stag one...;)

    He said he'd have the sheaths done by the end of next week. If they get done any sooner I'll let you know.

    Dan, mine came an hour ago. It's awesome!!! this is one thick chunk of 3v. It shaves out of the box and is one of the sharpest of your knives I've ever received.
