    The best I can do for an update this week...

    I had planned to finish up the step by step with the hybrid sheath how to this week but the tripod crapped out making the pic taking a little challenging. I got a replacement and will be back on track asap.

    Mostly did some sheathmaking and started the finish work on the pikal (also rough ground the pikal XL). So I will add pics to the pikal FOS thread soon.

    Finally, just before leaving work yesterday I managed to crush my left social finger in the liftgate of a truck at work. Whatever bit me pierced the fingernail at its base and inspired a bit of profanity and even more bloodloss. Dumbass tax paid in full. What is it they say..."if you're gonna be stupid you better be tough" .....I didn't cry........much That must mean I'm tough....or ....my brain is too primitive to have a well developed pain recognition response. I'm going with tough :deviltard:

    Sorry...no pics of the bloody smashed finger...maybe I'll post some of the big blue and purple mess it will be soon.

    I sure get a lot of use out of my firstaid kit....


    Have a good weekend everyone!!!! :thumbsup:

    Sounds like fun. But that's the life of a steel junkie. Always bleedin from somewhere and doin good to have 8 out of 10 fingers partially functional at any given time. Good luck with NOT smackin it on everything you walk past. LOL

    I've been busy myself with school and work. I have a few knives I'm trying to finish up but I have so many new ideas I want to start on as well.

    Yea it was throbbing so bad the past couple of days typing was a little torturous. Now its to the point where it only hurts when I put pressure on it so I can peck out a post or ten. So I'm back like a bad rash :tubtar:

    5 days since it happened so How is your finger now ?

    old remedy to relieve throbbing .....
    I read somewhere that dipping your finger in some Rum then sucking on it will relieve the throbbing. :jdsmokin:

    I am back in action....as long as I don't whack it on anything I'm good to go.


    I think I'll skip the finger sucking and just drink the rum :bottle:

    I've got the red liners laminated to your black scales so I'll be fitting up the handle on your knife soon :parker:
