I finally finished a first draft of my knife math!
You can find the draft here:
The file is huge because I embedded animations into the pdf file. If you have suggestions or comments, please let me know.
Because this is a _draft_ please do not spread this around....
Picked up this sweet little dashi by Mickey Yurco who is quite the little ingenious weapons maker. Nice basket weave pouch sheath for the belt, numbered to match the blade. 5mm spine, made from an old file and hand etched by Mickey to look like Damascus Steel.

(he has two other, nicer mills)
So I have a few questions for you guys,...
So I don't like LSCF (Lightning Strike Carbon Fiber). It's really pretty, but the stuff has actual WIRES in it, and if you actually use your knife for a long period of time, those wires start coming out and poking your hand. Not a fun experience!
So I ordered a CF scale from Don at Gator Scales, and I prefer it greatly!
Here is the LSCF scale:
Been selling a lot of knives lately (mostly from my collection, which is dwindling fast) So I decided to treat myself to this little jobbie.
A Custom Amsler Titanium (he calls it a ) Kiridashi Keychain Knife. I call it a Tiny Tanto. The ti work is very nice and pleasing to the eye. Countersunk holes and paracord wrap in the handle is a nice touch. Nice Grinds (the pics dont do it...
