ART! with a capital K!
Absolutely gorgeous. Forget about the shield, this work stands on its own merits. No need to slap someone else's logo on it just because they provided some of the raw materials.
Unreal...so kit. WANT.
The vic logo might look good just bead blasted on....would be awful hard to hand that over to someone else to work on it though I'd imagine.
Thanks everybody! I won't be doing another one with the hollow pins, only torx screws from now on. I figure it would have taken half as long if I could have polished those scales first and then installed them. Filing those rivets down without screwing up the sides was a major . But it has to have a shield. That's the most important part.
Oh, if you must.
Etched, either chemically or by abrasive blasting sounds like it would be cool. ...or engraved/milled.
 Forgot: :bow:
Is their a functional reason for the hollow tubes or is it a just because I can kind of deal.
I got started on this one before I ordered any of the stainless torx pivot pins. I had the thick wall titanium tubing so I thought I'd use it. I also wanted a bail on this one (which I'm working on now) so the hollow pins are going to help with that.
Fantastic work, well done!
Sooooo, how does it feel to use compared to a std SAK?
She's a heavy beast. A nice kind of heavy. I wouldn't put it up against the Mjolnirman but I'm sure it would come through a head on collision with any other SAK unscathed. Titanium has a grippy feel even when it's polished so it's interesting to have a knife that's so smooth but still doesn't slide around in my hand.
I lnow what you mean about Ti being kinda grippy. I've just has a big needle made from Ti for paracord work. I find it really easy to work with due to the feel of the Ti.
Just about awesome!
Very, very, awesomely well done.
Your attention to detail and 'fit and finish' really shows, and has paid off tremendously. I hope you receive appropriate notice/recognition (and payment) for your most certainly deserved and obvious talents. I'm delirious w/envy.
Well done, sir. Well done.
I'm sure the guys at SOSAK forums would love to see and drool all over your work.
Also, if you don't have any luck on feebay, there is likely buyer lurking there.
Check that. It's been a while, and seems as though the SOSAK sub-forum at knifeforums.com is gone, or something. Too bad, really. Lots of neat projects from what I remember.
Last one... I found what seems to be a 'new' sub-forum (my links was dead), but there doesn't seem to be much organization or consistency to the posts. I don't recall them being so scattered, but perhaps my 'view preferences' were different then.
*I haven't read through these, no idea what's there, as of now.
Thanks Jeeves. I'd like to get pics of it up on SOSAK but there just doesn't seem to ever be anyone at the helm over there. My pics won't load onto that site and most of the menu options have nothing behind them so I don't know what's going on over there.
Now thats cool, excellent work on that entire project, turned out great!
