The last few of these I’ve made have had killer action. It took a while for me to hone in that micro adjustment for the detent ball. There’s very little tolerance between too stiff and not enough so it gets stuck halfway out. I’m pretty happy with the new pocket clip too 👍👍🔪🔪 #knives #knife #metalarts #framelock #flipper #customknife #customknives #dailygrind #titanium #anodized #knifeporn #edc

It’s like a Tamagotchi, but more dangerous and less annoying. #knifemaking #knifemaker #customknives #customknife #frictionfolder #foldingknife #pocketknife #edc #knife #knives #woodworking #metalarts #dailygrind

I mean it’s pretty cool, but is it too cool? The Wendigo is one of my all time favorites, and so is the black and white / Patrick Bateman combo. I’m really enjoying the new material from @wkrmn, the cells bring it all together. I think i will use my first Zirc mark in this one too! Exciting. #knife #knives #knifemaker #knifemaking #knifeporn #customknife #customknives #dailygrind #edc #metalarts

Another reason why I love the Haley Strategic D3CR chest rig. The Velcro backing allows me to mount it inside my Vertx Commuter bag for concealment/bug out bag, as well as having it mounted to my Shellback Tactical Banshee Plate Carrier.

Custom leather sheath for my ‘One for The Road ’ knife .

The 'Road’ was purchased by a collector of my work and we discussed at length the ideas for a post Apocalyptic leather sheath .

Made from wet formed 4 mm thick veg tan distressed on the workshop floor , double dyed light / dark brown for an aged effect then rubbed back with wire wool .

Riveted with hammered copper saddlery rivets and brass kydex eyelets and set for horizontal carry via a large tek-lock.

 For vertical carry the sheath runs on a Dorset Woodland blade’s kydex extender . The sheath is finished off with a custom made fire steel in the same materials as the knife and a hammered copper fire steel holder  with kangaroo leather lanyard with bronze shackle and leg tie .

All of the add-on’s are removable via kydex hardware screws with the top leather belt keeper having a Cyflect Glint &Glow Concho  fixed to a brass cog .

Sheath for my primitive Neo- tribal kiridashi  .

The friction fit sheath was made from a mountain sheep leg bone from Snowdonia National park mountains .

Sun bleached then aged brown with potassium permanganate  wrapped with 3 strand braided sinew and added beads in bone, buffalo horn skulls from Nepal and ship wreck found copper nail eyelets  scavenged from my local beach on the Jurassic coast .
