It's starting to develop a nice patina.
So much to respond to here, I'll try to hit some of the points. Thanks for the compliments and feedback on the leatherwork. When it comes to a sewing machine, I didnt want to transition one day and have everyone go "Hey wait a minute, is this machine work?" That's something that needs to be known, not because it's a compromise, just a construction change.
Another reason I'm leaning towards it is that it seems like an inevitable step because of that very reason. My fingers already cramp up from leatherwork and the heal time is just going to get longer and longer. Kind of like how I used to be able to drink until 2am and then get up at dawn to run 5 miles. Now I need a whole day to recover from a few beers!
I do as well, it's extremely satisfying. What's counter-therapeutic for me is knowing that one of you guys has a knife that's finished and are waiting a long time for the sheath. I don't like that, it bothers me.
I hope this isn't being done at a restaurant Fondle your pepper in private!
Thanks Jared, that's exactly what I'm going for, simple, effective and with attention to detail. I think detail in clean work is more impressive that intricate tooling.
Some jokes write themselves!
I think you'll be in good shape, Scott sent 2 large pieces and they're thick enough to rip in half to make a set.
Ooh dat's nice! Looks like a quick strop sharpens things back up?
Can't speak for others, and I know it's only one factor, but I have no problem waiting for an awesome sheath for an awesome knife. But also realize that as the volume goes up, something's gotta give, so if a machine makes your life easier then go for it!
Hey, I apparently didn’t read through all the posts thoroughly enough to realize that the denim isn’t a new stock material. If it’s in short supply I’m happy to go with something else. Seriously not a problem. I don’t think I’ve seen a color I didn’t like.
Only in private, I'm not an animal...
You're welcome John. I couldn't agree more.
Yeah, expected some razzing from that. Oh well. :shrug:
Denim is definitely in the line up and I have plenty Embry, no worries
Only because we loves ya
Good deal, thanks, John.
Yep, I just hit it on the flannel wheel with some compound and shaving sharp again.
If there isn't enough I know where I can get more.
John how thick do the scales need to be?
I’m try to find some rag Micarta
Minimum 3/16 Greg, I can always try to rip down a thicker piece if you can't find scales. I'll keep an eye out.
Went camping for 5 days to celebrate the 4th! Weather was perfect! Wore my Cowbell the entire trip, crossdraw. Great little knife for EDC, I'm very happy with it.
Coffee the first morning.
Cowbell actually makes a really nice bird/trout knife. My son cleaning a few we caught with it:
That's awesome, so glad to see these are getting used and coming in handy!
The next pair is handsanded and the scales are ready for drilling.
Natural and blue denim.
Those look nice. Are you planning a Pocket Camp Knife build at some point?
Yes but those are after the pocket warnys
Hah, you laugh, but think about it - a Pocket Camp Knife with a matching Pocket Hatchet, in a piggyback pocket sheath. See!
I’m not laughing I’m praying
Peter Piper piggybacked a peck of pickled pockets?
I'll be getting the Camper handles epoxied and shaped with this pair of Cowbells.
