Chopper sheath

So yesterday my brother brought me a very crude looking knife which he had made out of scrap mystery steel with an angle grinder.
The knife itself is 14" (35cm) long overall and 1/4" (7mm) thick and weighs nearly 1.5 pounds (0,7kg). Not very sharp but apparently it worked effectively on firewood. it was obviously some sort of carbon steel, probably low carbon, so I forced a...

Those of you who missed my first post on the subject, read it here.

G Sakai Fieldman

I purchased a somewhat higher grade Swiss Army knife from what I believe to be the same people who make the Seki City knives.

Another Friction Folder with Blue Ti liners

Just finished yet another one of my AEB-L knives; it's simply too stunning to wait to post! It has a roughly 3" blade with Ti backspacer and Liners under some contoured peelply G-10 Liners. This was one of the first AEB-L Friction folders that I made, and this was before I really figured out how to engineer the pivot to maximize the amount of "wasted space" so it's a little bigger then it has...

Fake Spydercos: Initial Impressions

Here is an unboxing/initial impressions video on a couple fake Spydercos I bought off of AliExpress. I do not encourage you to buy fake products. I bought these out of curiosity to see for myself just how good the current fakes are and to report my findings. Long video due to my ramblings...
A more detailed analysis to come with lots of pics and possibly a final thoughts video, as well...

Friction Folder, Another Fixie, and Ti Diving Probe

Didn't get as much as I wanted to get done on my days off as I was planning, but still made a couple nice things none the less! 

First of all, my first steel-bladed friction folder!! I scored a bunch of 1/8"x3.2"x1.5" I wanted to keep the blade as long as possible so the normal friction folder design wouldn't really work... After some thinking, I decided to...

After a few hours of work, the first of my many AEB-L knives from heat treat is almost finished; Just nieeds a little more surface finishing.

Unfortunately two of my 14 blank knives warped irrepairably, so thet will get a rough edge put on em and torture tested to see how well with. None...

Carabiner wrap

I've had carabiners on my backpacks and messenger bags since high school so I don't lose my water bottle. The attachment has always been a simple affair, but I decided to try something new tonight.

I used "double ring hitching" from Geoffrey Budworth's Encyclopedia of Knots and Ropework, with a sort of constrictor knot (or maybe it is one) on the load-bearing end...
