Spyderco Kiwi 4 G-10

My Spyderco Kiwi 4 arrived on Saturday, I preorderd it back in January. 

It's nice, overall It's what I expected.  The only bummer is the 100% pinned construction. I guess no fancy scales on this guy =/

I got those Summertime Kiridashi Blues

Just wanted to share an interesting Kiridashi from a new maker I just picked up. You are looking at a Custom Kiridashi Made by Nick Chupin. It is made from 01 High Carbon Steel, Powder Coated...6.5" overall, with a 2.5" chisel grind. Nice file work in all the right places Blue G-10 slabs textured very nicely and kydex sheath and lanyard. The maker has a keen sense for ergonomics in a...

Chopper sheath

So yesterday my brother brought me a very crude looking knife which he had made out of scrap mystery steel with an angle grinder.
The knife itself is 14" (35cm) long overall and 1/4" (7mm) thick and weighs nearly 1.5 pounds (0,7kg). Not very sharp but apparently it worked effectively on firewood. it was obviously some sort of carbon steel, probably low carbon, so I forced a...

I have been carrying these both and using them a bit for a couple weeks now. I will now go through some aspects of both knives, both the good and the bad things.

I purchased a somewhat higher grade Swiss Army knife from what I believe to be the same people who make the Seki City knives.

Another Friction Folder with Blue Ti liners

Just finished yet another one of my AEB-L knives; it's simply too stunning to wait to post! It has a roughly 3" blade with Ti backspacer and Liners under some contoured peelply G-10 Liners. This was one of the first AEB-L Friction folders that I made, and this was before I really figured out how to engineer the pivot to maximize the amount of "wasted space" so it's a little bigger then it has...

Fake Spydercos: Initial Impressions

Here is an unboxing/initial impressions video on a couple fake Spydercos I bought off of AliExpress. I do not encourage you to buy fake products. I bought these out of curiosity to see for myself just how good the current fakes are and to report my findings. Long video due to my ramblings...

Friction Folder, Another Fixie, and Ti Diving Probe

Didn't get as much as I wanted to get done on my days off as I was planning, but still made a couple nice things none the less! 

First of all, my first steel-bladed friction folder!! I scored a bunch of 1/8"x3.2"x1.5" I wanted to keep the blade as long as possible so the normal friction folder design wouldn't really work... After some thinking, I decided to...
