There was some interest in following this, so I' thought I'd start a new thread for you guys. As always, this is in no way a solicitation for work. Just sharing the fun and joy in my hobby. Questions and comments are always welcome. Here are some WIP photos of the project I'm doing with the unfinished EDC 4 that recently surfaced. These blanks came from the old oak tree at the end of the movie "Shawshank Redemption". The blanks are pretty wormy and full of holes, but they have been stabilized. I laminated black micarta spacers. The blank I picked was the most solid and had lots of interesting character. The owner asked me to add a little more thickness to the front of the handle compared to a typical S!K handle. After consulting a little bit, we decided to implement more of a bushcraft style handle. I'll put just a little flare to it, and we also decided to fully capture the lanyard hole with the handle, and include a lanyard tube. All pins are stainless and brass mosaic, and the tube is stainless. We kicked around the idea of eliminating the back pin but have decided to add it. I'll work on that next. After grinding everything flush I am going to tumble the blade. It was only ever taken to the rough grind so it needs some help. After tumbling I'll glue it all up.
