    Forgecraft Thinning

    My customer asked that his Forgecraft be thinned because he was tired of the wedge effect he was experiencing. He OK'd me to do what I needed even if it meant removing the cool factory look and logo.

    What I found was that this knife was VERY thick along the middle (tip to ass) so I removed material from this section and then blended it all together. I was able to keep some of the logo and factory stamping, I then etched and buffed so that it still retains some of it's history and looks it had.

    Can you see the difference in the grind? I hope the owner can feel it at least.

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    New shoes will happen eventually. Didn't know the knife would come out so sweet!

    Debating a wa conversion but for now I kind of grew accustomed to the handle. With all the fancy shoes I've got it feels good to have one knife with some work boots.
