    @J-RAY1989 not a problem brother. Just doing my part since I don't have much in the material department to offer, but I do have some time to invest to keep the list updated and helping to keep things organized like the secondary list I kept for Woody.

    MULE CALL!
    I had good reason to be excited for this. Mules look oddly big in pictures, but it's actually the perfect size for what I wanna do with it. The scales are amazing and have what looks to be white micarta liners (maybe?). I know I'm going to have a lot of fun with this one! Thanks again @woodysone [​IMG] [​IMG]

    @Brhowser87 I have a artisan cutlery small archaeo in my rotation. And really like it. They do make a nice knife. If you like the proponent, the tomahawk might be worth trying out;). They think are similar in size. The tomahawk may be a hair longer though.

    You guys are horrible with peer pressure. "Come on smoke this it's fine you'll love it" :p:D:D:D

    I really appreciate It but i can't right now I don't have anything I can put up. If something comes along I might give it a shot. I like their knives.

    Well it looks like that’s the last one, I’m glad that they all made it and hope all of you enjoy these as much as I had putting scales on them.

    Only problem is now I want to pick up some mules from Spyderco and start doing my own scale work. I'm slowly becoming a monster. Already been looking at picking up the machinery needed to start crafting my own knives.

    That’s the trouble with the forum, it makes you want to push yourself to be the best you can be.

    That and watching copious amounts of forged in fire. Good thing is we can learn just about all there is to know about the hobby, just from these forums.

    Don’t forget Knife or Death, I didn’t know that a Titanium sword could be hardened to preform like it did and where’s Johnny?

    I don't watch that show much, but I did see that episode. Started researching titanium cutting tools shortly after. Internet is Surprisingly barren when it comes to that.

    The PM2 from @J-RAY1989 arrived yesterday in great shape. Me being me, I couldn't leave well enough alone and had to modify it further. I don't like peel-ply texture so I gave the scales a quick sanding. I intended to re-dye them, but I kind of like the softer, semi-translucent look with his original black/red fade so I think I'll leave them as-is for now. A quick sharpening this morning and it's in the carry rotation. Thanks again!

    That's because Sammy @Mecha is pretty much the only one doing it, at least with hardenable beta alloys. Mission knives is the only other that I can think of, everyone else is just carbidizing the edge on 6Al4V and calling it a knife;)

    That handle really looks well broken in with the black to red fade, nice work!;)

    Hey I really like the carbidized ti knives! It doesn't work on the hardened ones, you have to use a fairly soft ti for it to work right.

    I will admit, they are handy in a small utility type format...they'll slice (saw) through stuff for days;) I feel like they'd take a lot of damage in any sort of chopping applications though...
