Caught up on most of my work, and trying not to make a mess in the shop with a personal project coming up. So, thought I'd start getting some info for a passaround. I'm thinking 2 knives. One stainless knife, most likely a laser, with solid attached handle. The second knife in carbon, thicker, s-ground for a righty, with removable handles. Yes plural as in two, and interchangeable. One will be wa handled, while the other western.

I like to fit my western handles to individual hands, so I'm thinking if I can find 5 individuals with similar sized hands, I can base the passaround interest off of that. Incredibly unfair, I know, but who knows, maybe I'll change my mind since there will be another option available.

If interested, post a pic of your hand, taken like so, and we can get the party started. I'll post pictures of the work as I go along, but you'll have to realize I'm going to have to split the time making this knife with paid orders, and a bookcase my wife and I are just starting. For clarification, I'm looking for the length knuckle to knuckle, and the width of the index "pointer" finger.

Once I figure out all involved, I'll take requests for materials. Hope you're all having a great Monday ;)

Don’t know if I qualify, but doesn’t hurt to try!

My phone camera is currently broken so I'll get you a hand photo later, but this deserves a bump :)
At this rate, take your time lol. I expected a few more responses than this, but maybe people are overwhelmed with the pass arounds going on at the moment.

Oooh, a lefty! I'm down. H&ll, if I don't get many more replies, I may just make a knife for each of you ;).

Does it have to be using a way cool vintage ruler like yours?
Ha, I bought cheap ruler in college to do some drafting in an engineering class. That was 20+ years ago, so I suppose it's vintage now. I still want to make my own out of metal like that. It would be a beast. Reminds me, I still want a drafting table as well, but that would require room to put it.

Sweet!

I'll let this go a bit longer, and then we can start working on all the exact details! Thanks to everyone so far for taking the time :).

Would love to get in on this if CanUs is an option!View attachment 89489
I don't have a problem having the knife go to Canada, but custom fees up front will most likely be high. I know there's a way to get reimbursed for the fees if you can prove you sent the item back, but I don't know the whole process. I'd feel better about it if you did more research, so you weren't hit with anything unexpected.

I’m actually a righty, it blanked my mind that I had to take a pic of my right hand haha. I’ll try to take one later tn
That's ok, I just realized that I took a pic of my left hand as well for the example. Guess I feel more comfortable taking the pic with my right hand. Not normally a problem, as both hands are usually pretty similar in size, but there can be differences sometimes.
