My CNC Mill is Down

Which is a real drag. The power supply crapped out. I sent the powersupply off to an outfit in western Germany who should be able to repair it. A new one costs a lot of money. I hope to be back up in another week or so. Untill then, I'm doing a lot of other jobs I've been putting off ... like sweeping the floor!

New Design: Mini Thorn 2011

Looks like I finally have the design finalized for my next production knife! This is a substantially overhauled Mini Thorn. Overall length is 150mm, blade length is 60mm sharpened and blade height is 30mm.

The production version will be flat ground not hollow ground like the handmade prototype pictured. Steel stock is 4mm and will remain so in the production run.

The rubber insert in the grip is removable, yet won't come out unless you take it out.

I gotsta' get these ready for Christmas sale!

First Look: Mytuko Major with Restyled Grips

I finished up the last of the Mytuko Major protos last week. All have black Micarta grips as shown on this knife. This one has a slight false edge and a matt stonewashed finish on the blade. It's a one of a kind. Price is €199 (€167.23 for non-EU sales).

Most of this last batch are unique so I'll be taking individual pics and posting them asap.

A few of the knives have narrower blades and most have unique false edges. I tried out a lot of different styles! Three knives will be sold only with a custom fitted leather sheath. The other knives - including the one show - may be purchased with or without a leather belt sheath.

More pics to come!

Mytuko Major update

I've redesigned the grip of the Mytuko Major following the lines of the new grip for the Mytuko Mini shown below. All Major grips are done in black Micarta. I have several test knives with variations in the blade shape as well as a couple that are stonewashed matte grey. As soon as I finish these up, I will have them for sale.

A small production run of these is still up in the air. I have to decide if the sales potential warrants the investment. The production knives will most certainly be done from thinner stock, I expect it would be around 4mm+.
