Ok another Sinner recurve bowie is complete. I just wanted to post about this one to highlight some of the changes done to this variant since the first one/prototype. This one posed all the normal fun challenges as most hidden tangs do. Guard fitting, spacer glue up/alignment, and through tang handle pin were a challenge as always lol.
Now, for some of those changes. On this one, I contoured the spine and under the ricasso area. Even though you really can’t get your finger in that area above the guard I thought it would nice to have that area rounded aesthetically to match the spine.
Next, I completely redesigned the guard shape itself. I decided that nice sweeping curves would be a better feel, and flow with the design of the blade better. It still has a press fit nickel silver guard like it’s predecessor, but this one also has the addition of vulcanized black paper spacers in between more nickel silver.
Another thing is the butt end of the handle was shaped much rounder and more “egg shaped” you could say. I think that really help to set off that spalted maple burl handle all the more. The blade shape itself went unchanged. I didn’t want to refine on that too much so it stays true to it’s original design in the end.
I hope you guys like this more refined version of the Sinner. I feel like I’ll be making many more of these in the future…or I hope to anyway. If you’d like to see the rest of the finished images, jump over to the gallery and check them out Here.
Thanks for visiting the site, and thanks for checking out the posts. I really do appreciate it. Come back anytime.
I just wanted to do a post on here for all you guys that have Instagram (most do). I just recently hit 1000 followers over there and I’m doing a knife giveaway to commemorate it. So, if you want in on this get over to Instagram (@walterwhiteknives) and follow me and activate notifications. You’ll then know when I make the official giveaway post. Here are a couple of in progress pictures of the Badger that I’m giving away.
This Badger is 8 1/4 inches overall length. The steel is 3/16 inch differentially heat treated W2 tool steel with a pretty vivid hamon. The tang has also been tapered plunge line to butt of the knife.
The front of the knife also tapers from plunge line to the tip. For handle scales it will have some broken aluminum core resin scales that resemble a kryptek type design style.
It will also have a hand stitched sheath of 7 to 9 oz. veg tanned leather. I’m gonna stain it a nice medium timber brown color. It’ll be ready to become one of your every day carry options.
In closing, if you’d be interested in winning such a knife free of charge, head over to Instagram (@walterwhiteknives) and give me a follow. Some double taps are always nice as well. Thanks for reading this little update. I’ll update here again soon.
Here is the first new frame lock design. I’m calling it the Sheepdog since it has that distinctive sheepsfoot style blade.It is definitely on the large side for being a folding knife, but that’s ok. Some of you guys really like a hefty big folding knife that means business. Well, I’m here to please where that is concerned. I still need to design the pocket clip for it, but that won’t take me long. This will be up for ordering very soon. If you like it, feel free to comment about it. If you want one, get with me. Just send me a message or head over to the Custom Order page. It will be added to the custom order form shortly.
This one is the Apex. It is a EDC (Every Day Carry) sized frame lock. Small enough not to be too cumbersome in your pocket, yet still big enough to take care of the daily tasks. This one has a drop point style blade with a swedge cut into the top of the blade running about 2/3 up the length of it. This will be a solid little performer. Both this one and the Sheepdog above will pivot on caged ball bearings with full titanium frames and screws. The quality in these two new designs is where they will shine. Top quality materials will make for a tough, long-lasting companion. As with any of my designs, if you like it, shoot me a comment about it. If you want one, just send me a message or jump over to the Custom Order page. Put a little bit of Texas in your pocket!
As always, thanks for giving my post a read because I really am grateful. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, also Don’t forget to Like & Share. It really helps.
I decided to do a complete overhaul of the shirt designs. I created another shop style t-shirt, and one involving a little satire. You can guess which is which I’m sure if you head over to the Shop. Both designs are added to the Shirt Shop, and I added some coffee cups to the product list. Yes, you can have these designs on your coffee cup, I know you’re truly excited about that. Another great addition is now if you decide you’d like a shirt, you have the capability to change the shirt type/color/style and change the design color. So you can customize the colors to your liking. The new designs are up, and the Shop is ready to handle your orders. It’s a really easy way to support a Texas small business.
We’re also running this promo early August:

Just posting to let everyone know that I’ll be out of the shop from July 1st through July 9th. The family and I are going on a much-needed vacation. Taking our kiddos to Jellystone Park up near Dallas. I will be back available on Tuesday July 10th. I really appreciate your understanding.
Talk to you guys soon!
