    Usually fixed blade knives don't do a THING for me. But YOUR knives have a style, finish, and lines that scream "ARTIST" all over them! Good luck at the blade show!

    I've played with it....it looks a lot like my H.O.S. model and I never could make the V2 handle look good with that blade shape.


    Thanks all!

    And would THAT be a MSD that I see taking shape over there on the far right? :manganr:

    Not an actual MSD or AET as it will be called going forward. That was the one I started back at the beginning of the project but totally switched gears in the middle of the process....so I finished this one up for Blade....the Tac-chete! :knifey:

    Bet that'll raise a stir!

    Still waiting for those to get into normal production... :ropeman: I have absolutely NO need for one... and I'm droolin' all over the floor waiting to get hold of one. :bwah:

    That thing is bad to have around the shop......Mike sent it back last week for the next round of tweaks....every time I pick it up something in the shop gets whacked.


    'Bout to have to rebuild a shop table :knifey:

    Well, the old saying about having a hammer... well, apparently the same (relatively) with an AET comes down to "everything needs a good chop". :bwah:
