    This is why I love making knives... going from an idea to something that can be used and counted on. I started on paper with these then cut out the pattern to transfer to steel. I adjusted the design a bit from paper as the handle needed a bit more thickness. After that I marked my Steel with Dykem, clamped my knife down with a kant-twist clamp and scribed the design down. My heat treated template knife has holes located and sized for my hand held center punch so I also punch in my hole locations. This ensures repeatability and accuracy with only simple hand tools

    Background story...

    I've seen a lot of talk on the forums that due to the high prices some people are losing interest in custom knives. Even though I remain sold out on all knives with a big backlog I don't like seeing this happen. I can't lower my prices on folders or even my labor but I sure can bring it hard like nothing else with affordable fixed blades that everyone can use and own. I'm excited about knifemaking more than ever before and want to bring you guys along for the ride. This will be a great opportunity for some of you to check out my work at a gateway price. i never skimp on anything and will work harder for your money than anyone else. How about a run of 100% handmade CPM-3V fixed blades with scales for under $150? I'll post more about the design below., let's get excited about this knife thing!

    It would be hard to over state how much I'd love one of your pieces in that range, out of 3V! I can't see how this wouldn't be a best seller.

    150! :eek: Even a bike mechanic can afford that! :D
    I like the holes to fit your punch in your template idea. :thumbup:

    Will you be taking names down or just selling them as you make them?

    Thanks Tony! I just can't say enough about the incredible support you guys have given me.


    Very good to hear! I don't know how I made it without the center punch! I've been doing them with a hammer/punch and this is much better, only cost a few bucks too.


    Thanks! I may extend the run if I get enough interest, right now I'm at 13 of 14 spots filled so there is still one space left.

    Much appreciated!


    I have a list going with one spot left. I may make more with enough interest shown so just let me know either way. Sign up only on these. Thanks!


    Thanks! 3 finger grip on these, they are made to index nicely in the hand that way. I wanted the feel of a 4 finger knife with that blade size but the shorter 3 finger grip that does not stick high out of a sheath, These will carry exceptionally nicely which was big goal along with a tough, affordable hard use edc made for the people.

    Good deal, can't wait to see it. I sent you the specs by direct e-mail, the BF e-mail can be a little dicey, so you would also have my address.

    Let me know if you need anything else...thanks.
