    FS a hand made cusyom camp sword! (or really big knife lol) PRICE REDUCTION

    This swaord/knife was made to be between a machete and a knife. Its big enough to tear thru wood and brush yet still agile enough and sharp enough to be used as a knife when needed. Here are some specs

    Steel 3/16" thick 1095 that was heat treated and triple tempered by me in my even heat heat treating oven
    length = 12" blade and 5 1/2" handle
    handle material - G10 with stainless steel pins
    sheath - red oak and leather

    I left a big piece of the leather on the back for people who would like to attach a molle vest attachment like http://www.knifekits.com/vcom/produc...roducts_id=284

    Price 100$ shipped with insurance







    Chopping test - cut thru a 2x4 and be able to shave arm hair afterwards (this is a part of the junior and master smith test they use for the ABS - american bladesmith society)



    No chipping or cracking after whacking the 2x 4 in half



    and it still shaves!

    Turned out great!

    The sheath is a very nice touch.
    I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve

    Yeah of course id post a pic! LOL I put a lot of pressure on myself to always make a knife better then the last and I always seem to take the harder and more complicated choices. The challenge in this one was tempering the spine so it was springy enough not to crack when chopping and whacking away yet still have the edge hard enough to take a nice edge and hold it all the while having a light and nimble feel. This thing was made with ruggedness in m ind and meant to be used HARD! Thats why the g10 handles and stainless steel pins. The sheath was even thought of and made really sturdy. That is some super thick leather (9-10 oz) that should also last! I really like the idea of my knives outlasting me or the person that bought it. A simple wipe down with any kind of oil or wd-40 after a camping trip and you are good!

    Yesterday i was going over the cost of materials and realized at first I was gonna use a nice piece of redwood burl for the handle and later changed it so this thing would be super water/destruction proof to the g10 handle which is alot cheaper then real nice stabalized wood. The price should have been 100$ shipped with insurance. So sorry

    I wish you did Ka-Bar style knives. I need a good/rugged/ugly sheath knife that has a strong blade. No fancy handles needed either, just wrap in leather or rope.

    I can do other styles. Ive done everything from bowies to traditional japanese tantos to skinners. Thats the fun part to me. Only limited by my imagination and skills.

    Yeah it isnt everyones cup of tea but I like the idea of this thing being super rugged and even being thrown in the back of someones jeep etc and no real worries. I might do another down the road with a more elaborate handle and sheath
