Ha,ha. Nice try Hogleg, but no. I've moved on to something else, like watches.

[report]Oh I forgot that's what it's called around here. So kettle it is. Anyway, just a total noob to the kettle world so I'm just baby steppin hoarding a handful of inexpensive kettles. I'm trying out different straps, bracelets, minor mods and eventually doing some internal mods.

Here is one kettle example..... a waterproof kettle for what we do around here so I got me the ubiquitous Seiko SKX007. It gets the job done for a relatively low cost. It's a pretty versatile kettle imho.

I made another leather strap for it the other day, just a single piece amateur hack job with a button stud and it gets the job done.
Image

Image

Image

Eventually my goal is to make a strap for it like this one...
Image

Image

Image

Really dig the bracelet I have for it....
Image

Image

Image

This kettle I got from the house boss this xmas
Image

Image

I also made another strap for it...
Image

Image

Like I said, amateur job but gets the job done securing the kettle.
Image

This kettle looks best with this strap

Another diver I added a cyclop to help my aging eyes.

Well, there you go with samplers from my new obsession. I still have all my knives and surely I'll be adding more but wanted to try something different. Still much to learn about the kettle, Japanese movements, Swiss movement, and the kettle industry in general. Anyway, much respect to those who makes their own knives.

Sorry for the interruption with this kettle post on this sacred thread. Where is the kettle thread btw? I'll move this post there if there is one.

That is a very elegant blade.

Top 3 knives are a Boker Bushcrafter, a heavy duty camp knife at 3\16" thick, a Kellam Puukko knife, and last is the ol' Buck 110, a must own that I replaced. The bottom 4 knives are knife blanks I bought and finished with handles. The blade is the easy part here, the handles have been my undoing. Top 2 are traditional birch with spacer of antler on the one. Bottom 2 are from birdseye maple. I didn't go much for fit and finish here, just wanted to get a good handle profile and fit. You can see where the blades are chipped and scratched....from removing epoxied on blades to start handles over. My own blades that I cut out of bar stock are just as nice as these...like I said, the blade here is the easy part, grinding is not too hard as I use a jig...these were all about the handles.

Nice work on those handles. I'm not planning on bolsters or multi-material handles for a while.
