    Tony, if you are reading this, I am curious about the choice of D-2 for a top of the line knife like the Wharncliffe Lockback Whittler #0.

    You make so many knives in 154CM and ATS34, what pushed you in the direction of D-2 for this one?

    The fellow I made that for had it made to use. He has about a dozen of my knives and uses them all. Lost it once and went back the next day and found it in some leaves. Had his butt puckered pretty tight, panic I think is the word. Haaa. D2 is one of the best using steels out there if properly heat treated.

    Awesome, thanks for sharing.
    I would love to have one of those.... I would maybe trade all of my Bose knives for one.:)
    Well maybe not all, lol
    But a few anyways.

    Beautiful work Tony, a friend of mine is going to Blade just to see your work in person. Hopefully I'll be able to do so as well one day :D

    Sure is fun seeing these work in progress pictures! Makes me realize I need to own a T Bose knife someday, I hope I get the chance. I've had a knife from all the makers I really like except Tony...I need something from the one who started it all.

    Love the use of a bushing on even the small blades, taking that extra step that so many find unnecessary is one thing that sets these apart.

    The Wharncliffe whittler is beautiful... Beautiful. I can only hope for Tony to collaborate with Case on one like that, more graceful than the lockback IMO. Nice collection.
