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.
Rival Friction Folder Prototype
This little guy is starting to come along now. Profiling the little blade has been a bit of a challenge. It isn’t easy to hold it at all, mostly due to it heats up super quick on the 2×72. I don’t mind the challenge. I’m actually loving the not knowing part of it all. Kind of weird probably, but fun none the less.
I’m about to start working on the spacer for the butt of the handle tomorrow. For now it’s going to be pinned and epoxied on this one. I’m starting to lean toward making a liner lock after this. I’m not sure, sort of will depend on how all of you react to it. If you guys seem to like it, I’ll make some more. If not, I’ll move straight to finishing up my design of a liner lock (Yes one is in the works).
Well, with that said, if you’re a maker and have some tips for me please leave them in the comments. I’d love to hear from you, and learning more during the process couldn’t hurt. As always, thanks a lot for stopping by, and I appreciate your attention. I’m definitely not a writer.
