    Mike, those are those Jantz blades. The most time is in waiting on epoxy to set. I made those 2 one sunday afternoon.

    I have made a couple from Jantz and a couple from knifekits.com , Ive been happy with both! Want to make something a little more tactical looking, Think in my three month vacation comming up, after the garage is rebuilt, I will have plenty of time to tinker!

    Just so everyone knows, Mike (Papasmurf) is an military aircraft painter, and while painting, slipped on top of a wing and took a header off about 8 feet onto the floor and tore out his shoulder, so now he gets surgery to put it back somewhat like it was. So if he gets grumpy the next couple of weeks, we know why. He will return to normal before long.

    I made this from an old file I found where my great great uncles place was. It has a Rockwell C of 63-64 (eek!) so I won't be doing any prying with it. I shaped the blade on a surface grinder, then hand shaped the blade point. Drilling the lanyard hole was the worst hole I've ever drilled in my life, I burnt through two carbide drills with multiple sharpenings. The saw teeth were also done on the surface grinder, with a cut off wheel mounted. I hand ground the finger grooves, blued it, epoxied the micarta handles and brass pins. Final blade length is about 4.5". A friend (ww2 vet) did the sheath for me.
