here are some of my knives been working on. I do them all myself including heat treat. Am getting my Elmax stainless to 62rc and for skinners/field dressers have worked very well even though grind the edge down to about .009 to .010 Think will need to take a break so I can get out and call some coyotes this winter.
Being I am a hunter and have used many blades in the field the hunter style knife has been my focus. That said I really want to try a 8” chef blade. Any other makers here?
They look great!
Wow. Sometimes I think I'm a handy guy. Then I see what some of you can make! Very impressive.
You are very talented!
Beautiful work Robert, I am currently working on an Alabama Damascus beaver skinner. I will post pics when finished. Any advice on the kydex sheath process? I'm thinking about going that route.
They are All very nice, But I REALLY like that First one.
Work of art for sure. Now, would you skin a coyote with one of your knives? :) my best, Paul
Thanks for the kind words. I would absolutely skin a coyote with those. Minus the little cleaver. That said been real fun learning all the ins and outs. To be honest though would prob grab a havalon for old stinky dog. ??
Here are a pair of A2 blades I finished up. Coated in Socom Blue Cerakote.
Very nice, I am just getting started in making knives, got a lot to learn. Forrest
Is a slippery slope when you get started. Ask my wife. I now have a garage set up like a shop with tooling and such. And after you think you have it figured out you learn something more and apply that so you are forever gathering new processes and skills.
Those are beautiful!
^^^^^What he said.
Great work, those are beautiful.

I would definitely buy that clever one, and the first one is beautiful! How much for the clever knife?
PM me if you like...
Thanks again all. I put pencil to paper and drew up a new design. Think will make a few out of CPM 3v and W2.
Sweet looking blades RJ. I make a few in my spare time.
That’s awesome. I have not done leather yet but is on my list of things to learn.
Those are beautiful RJ. Do you sell them?
Yeah those are beautiful knives. I'd have a heart attack if I lost one.
I do sell them as get them done but slow on production as do in my off time. Everything I have posted here was sold or spoken for. I don’t post anything here for sale as respect to the sponsors, not sure how pat would take that. Maybe classifieds maybe? Not sure how that would work. Just posting my progress in learning and style. Here is one am working on currently. Maybe will check with Pat to see if he would allow me to put something in the classifieds if available. Thanks guys all the kind words.
