    Quote from Tom Rodgers: “Thanks Essexman. I have actually just secured a G10 Urban in the Green Scales and a UKPK with CF scales and S30V blade so I may have to hold on for a weeks or so!

    - hello and a warm welcome to EM, Tom

  • - not sure that's des-ir.......if it didn't look like proper stuff, Rob likely wouldn't have used it. SA has so many different hardwoods. Got this s/hand and Rob refurbished it for me, can't recall the wood, but an unusual one... edgematters.uk/attachment/3235…d3e5cbed19c189b628d625dadedgematters.uk/attachment/3235…d3e5cbed19c189b628d625dad

    - cool, nice one, Amir............can see you giving it to someone to use while you watch though I normally use Diafold sharpeners, then finish off on one of Longstriders bit strops - get my axe edges to shave-sharp

  • Quote from LX_Emergency: “Interesting that they would list G10 as "brittle". I remember someone testing it alongside Micarta on youtube or something....and it was FAR from brittle. Similar with CF in my experience. ” - indeed, there's a few excellent makers who prefer G10 to micarta

  • @SharpestEdge.......'buy' some of my Wenge...? Certainly not..! - if you pay the postage, you can have PM me

  • Quote from Jimmypie: “Quote from Tigertim: “Every day a school day ! Thanks @Jimmypie ” just my guess on his finish, it'd be great to hear from the maker himself , but if you want that "driftwood" finish on furniture and flooring then that's generally how it's done , steel and brass brushes , wire wool , elbow grease ” - yep, that figures, Jim..........sure is a fab finish I love Wenge and have used it on my architectural jobs too - bathroom worktops/border line in timber flooring/b'fast bar top…

  • Quote from richp: “@Chui that's an amazing knife, Paul! Details...? ” - apologies, I know no more. I screen-grabbed those pics on 13 May 2011 when I was on BB cos I was so taken by the finish and the design. IIRC he was Eastern European maker.........and the effect he created was by using wire wool, so it took out the softer grain, but left the harder part - stunning, eh!

  • Quote from vilePossum: “wenge makes for some seriously nice knife scales imho. ” - one of the very nicest I've ever seen... edgematters.uk/attachment/3218…d3e5cbed19c189b628d625dadedgematters.uk/attachment/3218…d3e5cbed19c189b628d625dadedgematters.uk/attachment/3218…d3e5cbed19c189b628d625dadedgematters.uk/attachment/3218…d3e5cbed19c189b628d625dadedgematters.uk/attachment/3218…d3e5cbed19c189b628d625dad

  • Quote from xellos99: “Wood arrived 2day. Chocolate + black (Hidden Content) ” - nice slab of Wenge (pronounced wengee, not wenj, as some people say .............. )

  • - ooh, well, to me that looks very cool and a wonderful thing to be gifted

  • - forgot...........also have this small one in Giraffe Bone, and it's a truly perfect wee thing image-proxy

  • - very well done, Joel........and most certainly very well done, Shing - absolute stunner

  • Jim doesn't knock out that many knives, so I'd suggest he is very much a custom/handmade maker. These shadow patterns are linerless and I'd further suggest one of the nicest most satisfying 'gentac' slippies you could have. They're not rugged construction of course, but day to day usual edc chores eg string, paper, fruit, cheese etc - not a problem, a pleasure to use. Dunlap c-f shadow pattern, very much the same as @CragMasterCraigs one there... image-proxy image-proxy - and one of his Lanny Cl…

  • Peli case enlightenment needed :)

    Chui - - Knifey Chatter

    Post

    Hi Joel - haven't read through all the posts, so forgive if I'm repeating. I carry some knives in a Peli type case - very lockable and waterproof. I feel quite self conscious carrying it, as I feel people looking at me thinking 'wonder what he's got in there', so I'd defo not get a yellow one To be able to stick a couple of good padlocks on it when I do transport - even if in the boot of the car - is always going to go down well if apprehended by boys in blue for whatever reason. If you're only …

    - would suggest if these were actually made in USA, they'd proudly say so. However, as we know, there's more n more coming out of the Far East - be it China, Taiwan, whatever - that is of a very high standard indeed. Perhaps these guys have the components shipped back / QC / assemble..........whatever the case, they appear to be producing a very nice product - but final say will be after one's in the hand of course. They may well be a tad overpriced for what they are, I don't really know yet....…

I plan to start my first knife in the next couple of weeks at the mall moment I only have a bench grinder and some Emory paper... experiments on lengths of mild steel have gone surprisingly well, but I think I will need more gear for the actual knife.
