Ready to start my 2017 knife season up. Gonna make a 14" Bowie/chopper to start out. Gonna use D2 tool steel (has become my favorite blade metal as it's hard as hell and doesn't need treatment with kid gloves) and a wood/metal/composite handle. Will post some pics when I get started:flag::flag:.

Thanks, Dan!
Don't forget, your invited down here to hunt turkeys this year again, just let me know.

If the birds are as hot as they were last year, look out. I killed two boss toms last year in about 5 days.

Well, finally gave up on my sander build and bought a partial one. Got it working yesterday after a week of making small parts that it needed.
After 3 months of useless work, i'm again ready to start my "bowie chopper."

This sander will cut my grinding time by 80% Can't wait to get started!

Well, finally got the hunter done for my neighbors nephew.
Next, finish the bowie.
The blade is D-2 tool steel and the grips are imported, Italian olive wood. I really like the wood, how bout you guys?:flag::flag:

One like that around $100.00 with a homemade sheath. For you, much less.
Also less for anyone on this site.:flag::flag:
