Awesome photo! What are those tag looking items and what are they made of?
My customized Boker Subclaw Multicam:
Multicam Micarta, Multicam Paracord, Titanium bead.
Those are in fact 1" oval "failed" tags, bronze alloy (the seller on EB said...). I bought a bunch of them for a couple of bucks and i'm starting work those (on the posted pic are four like folks in my family... simply etched the names on one side, at the moment).
if you allow me to take a little joke about your avatar's name, you... will surely survive, as an artisan ! I'm sure that you can work if you will for a lot !
Nice work, good choice of colors, Ti bead (saw also other beautiful yours), the right kind of paracord... that's all good !
My gf gifted a Meru Taffy to me on my request. I was curious about the knife because it was less than 7 dollars.
I reprofiled it to 20 degrees using a GatCo. Besides that I regularly have to recenter the blade by tightening the pivot screw, I am really surprised by the knife. It is razorsharp now, holds an edge quite good is surprisingly comfortable to handle. The opening is a bit awkward, you have to get used to the angles. The clip is a bit too tight, but that is something which can be fixed. All in all: It looks nice, costs next to nothing, is thin, easy to sharpen and holds an edge quite good.

What Kershaw is the one in the middle?
Just got it today...Tuffknives Death Toad #3...
From left to right:
Strider SMF, CRK Umnumzaan Old Pivot no LBS, Timber Ghost Mini Osprey Kiridashie, Grayman Satu Full Ti.
That is the Cryo, with a custom brass overlay scale that I made for it.
Like them both! I carry a CRKT Stubby Razel daily! If you don't mind me asking, did you do the work on these?

Today let this old guy to have a roundabout.
Yea I did all the work on them , I have a page on Facebook called Kelly's customs or shoot me a email at my username here @gmail
I've thought about getting a CRKT Mini Razel before... I just might still.
Well, I had a splurge at heinnie Haynes (probably 'the' UK knife seller), and got 5 new 'UK legal' blades...
First order included these two
A rough rider baby toothpick.
For £7.95, it's a lovely little knife. Sharpens up well, but the blade isn't ground centrally. For 8 quid though, it's great. Small, and gets nicely lost in a pocket. Been carrying it for a couple of weeks now.
A marbles handyman helper 2. Again, £7.95, but you can tell. Hard to sharpen, and feels... Cheap. I bought it for the novelty really, as it also opens into a 400mm ruler!
Some lines don't... Well, line up, but again, for 8 pounds, it's a fun little gadget.
Anyway, I was a bit flush, so placed an order last Saturday for these next 3.
A bear grylls/gerber grandfather knife.
I don't really like gerber, don't mind bear grylls, but just really liked the look of this. Traditional meets new. It'd also a good bit bigger and heavier than I thought, you do notice it in your pocket! Nice knife though for £22, but the blade nail nick is very close to the body, making it difficult to open with short nails...
Then a boker plus trance 42
it's smaller than I thought, even though close to the legal limit, and nice and light. The flipper won't open it fully yet, hoping it will when it loosens up a bit. Not carried it yet, just playing with it at home.
Last is this, a boker plus XS
It's heavy for what it is, but I like some heft to a knife sometimes. The handle is the biggest of the bunch, but I like that due to my shovel hands. Quite stiff to open, but no issues with a strong back spring that some reviewers have. Been carrying this since I got it, and really like it. It replaced the toothpick!
The pocket clip is stupidly stiff though, to the point where it's basically unusable.
Cheapish knives, maybe not the best blade steel, but I'm happy with them all, as UK choice is limited for carrying with no good reason.
I'm not a steel snob, and happy to touch them up as and when needed
This just in: ESSE Zancudo. Solid, no frills knife. Very impressed so far. 4" closed, just under 7" open. A generous cutout for the thumb, resulting in easy opening. This one will see a lot of carry time.
I don't know how other peoples were out of the box but I can tell you when I pulled it out the box I was terribly dissapointed in the fit/finish of it and it got a whole make over top-bottom/inside and out and it changed it completely
