It is a tad different on this one. I lost 8 mm of the tip after HT, so I had to reshape on the fly. Is isn't as bad as the photo portrays, its the angle of the photo, it makes it look narrower than it is.
No wonder I didn't notice. Here's a picture of the blank and the fully ground knife, side by side. I asked Pierre for a comparison shot, and here it is:
It must have been the angle!
Im late on this, but would love to get in on one
Just letting you all know I've been using the prototype pretty hard for a few days now. I'll be bringing it with me on vacation, and then it will be sent on to the awesome panel!
So far, I've spotted some minor things I'd tweak, to my preference, but it's a beautiful knife, and boy is that throwback handle COMFY!
Here is a pick of me trying to make it a new leisure suit:
And one of some patina...not the best pic, but I'm packing!
I'm gonna have lots of fun with this one, all week long!
it's looking real good. would love to see a saya for it as well. lol. =D
since it looks like you're making one for it, or does it already have one?
Yea maybe a discount for a saya if some one wants one
Woah- slow down guys... I'd rather just get an awesome mid range priced knife. Throwing a saya into the mix is just getting into the way of Tom making sayas for all my other knives...
