    It's no secret that I make and sell a certain amount of pieces for Blade HQ. This is done to reduce my waitlist and to make steady income. I do things in batches and at any given time I'm working on atleast 2 projects in different stages, possibly 3. This fills up the down time and is more efficient than doing one project all the way through.
    I aim to make money, I aim to make Blade HQ money, and I aim to provide high quality pieces at reasonable pricing for those who want them. Here's some of my portfolio:

    Like I said I do things in batches with the intent of trying to improve the product with each batch and to provide variety. Each piece from BHQ comes with a signed and dated warranty card and spare hardware. I expect my knives to be used, but not abused.

    What would you like to see?

    Maybe some stainless steel gremlins, I like having a little extra weight on an Edc.

    ^^^^This.

    (I have yet to own one of your creations, (so pardon my chiming from the peanut gallery), but from what I have seen on here and seen on BladeHQ, I think this one is my favorite so far, and would be a great base or starting point to diverge from. (Such as ano, drilled holes, or milled holes, etc...)

    Id like something with g10 handles, steel liners- 2 instead of 4, carbon steel spacers, carbon steel blade.
    Ooh and multicolor handles! I think it be cool if you did like a kinda imtation bolster look with one color g10 in the middle and anoter on the two ends.

    ^^ I've never seen this before, and I would love to see these for sale at BHQ. Beautiful blade :devilwag:

    Also, I would like to see a weehawk tanto blade Gremlin. Preferably with black G10. I think it would look great with the small design

    thank you sir, last time I checked there's 3 of them.
    for anyone on the fence, here's some more info:
    pb bushings for pre-set play(not free flowing tightened all the way)
    These were designed to be "purpose-built" flippers at 4.7-4.8 ounces.
    the handles are finished in an "orange peel" which was then buffed to resist oxidation and give a soft, grippy feel.

    Also, it's worth mentioning that bhq wants to clear the current stock before ordering more pieces, as is the nature of a retailer.

    For a future build, I pitched them ALL Titanium handle deviants (3/16" ti spacers, approx handle thickness 1/2"), so basically the same knife but with a little more weight and a little more cost (approx. $450) What do you get?
    5/32" 154cm steel blade
    ti slabs and ti spacers
    t-latch
    pb washers
    extra screws
    warranty

    Remember that everything is a work in progress and future plans are subject to change.
    Have a nice week

    I got the go-ahead for 3 deviants.
    The only changes atm will be a removable pocket clip and MAYBE using thinner stock (1/8" blade, 5/32" spacer). This will make it a little thinner but closer to an ideal weight.
    I'm getting pretty darn close to what I have envisioned for some time now.
    Thank you all for your patience and interest!

    The proto I have is about 5 ounces which is the heaviest knife I got, yet it has the most swing and the fastest flipping speed soooo keep doing that, great weight and speed plus very smooth:thumbsup:

    They look darn good man! Maybe someday I'll be able to afford one of your pieces, they look great and I imagine flip great as well.
    Btw all titanium would be legit as well!

    update:
    They were delivered on the 3rd but haven't been put up yet due to a large stock that needed to be cataloged first. They're busy people over there.
    I have some extra parts and I'm toying with the idea of doing a one-off.
