should have included a banana for scale. 13.125" overall with a 7" blade. I'm aware of some negative press, but a few friends love them. Saw it for less than half price retail - couldn't pass it up.

Nice replacement marlo! I had that Junglas in consideration when I was looking for a big fixed blade knife. I think you'll get your $ worth with that knife. I ended up picking up the CS SanMai TrailMaster, very happy with it. That Buck Hoodlum never made the selection after numerous reports of it failing like yours did. Looks like you did put a whoopin on that Hoodlum though, bravo! :cool

I've always been as big a fan of buck knives as my father is but it's clearly a design flaw on the hood. 4 years of steady batoning abuse and i was surprised it didn't fail earlier.

The junglas is definitely on a different level.

My first visit to Argentina while attending a business dinner came across a KDS steak knife on year two went to their shop. Year three ordered a knife, the matron said very expensive and hard to get steel given the difficulties of importing into the country. My reply was no real hurry, emailed a couple of times no reply. Two weeks before returning asked an Argentine colleague to call on my behalf, three calls no return call. Next to last day there to my surprise my co-worker simply drove up to the shop an hour and half each way - said what I requested was not possible. Bummer,

He sent back an image of this knife to see if was way a possible alternative. Image

I of course said yes. I could not risk offending his friendship or efforts. Its is remarkable, not quite my style but very nice. So I booked a car for the following morning to visit the shop, and found this beauty.

Image
While there I requested another knife blade shaped just like this one but wood handle in total...to be picked up next year..

[report]A few months ago my daughter mentioned that she knew a guy who was giving a bladesmithing class. Knowing my affinity for knives, she correctly assumed that I'd be all over it. What better way for some father/daughter bonding than learning how to make a knife? We signed up, as did my brother and his daughter. The dude "teaching" the class was a nice enough guy, and I'm sure he knew his shit, but he was no teacher. It was pretty much a totally unorganized free-for-all, jockeying with eleven other people for position at three forges and five anvils. It was still pretty cool and we had a good time.

Here's what happens if you beat on a very hot railroad spike for a few hours:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The results were less than stellar. I beat the hell out of my blade until there wasn't enough meat left to really bevel a blade. Of course my brother's turned out way better than mine. Fucker. At least Mom always liked me more. He did a paracord wrap while I used a piece of oak for a handle:

I know it's crude as hell, but it inspired me to get serious about making knives. And to make a better knife than my brother. I watched a shitload of you-tube, sectioned off a section of the basement for my shop, bought some equipment, ordered some bar stock and have spent the last few nights at my new belt grinder. Now I have somewhere to go while my wife spends three fucking hours every Monday watching "The Bachelor". Here are two almost ready for heat treating:

The heat treater has a minimum racking charge so I'm going to wait until I have seven or eight knives ready to do at once. I hate waiting, 'cause I've got some nice zebra wood and black palm for handles that I'm dying to see finished.[/report]

Thanks, Pimp. Your July post was part of what kicked my ass into getting serious about this. I'm guessing you've cranked out a few since your last update. Let's see what you've been up to.

Any of you knife-o-philes have a good suggestion for where I should list a fancy hand-made knife for sale? My father is trying to unload a Jimmy Lile drop point. I think this particular knife is worth about a thousand bucks.
