Hi all,
I've posted this on a couple of forums already but thought it really belongs on here.





























There is more infomation about it on the British Blades Forum as well as the EDC Forums     

Hope you like it

The link to the British Blades forum page in my first post has quite a few paragraphs on the method and thought process i went through.

I didn't want to post it all again because there was so much of it.

(sorry i didn't realise the first links were broken, now fixed)

*cleans my eyeballs and puts them back in* WOW!  :drool:

I'd estimate that thing isn't half factory components at this point. I really dig it! This a true one of a kind tool, and I wish I had the skill to match it.

That is amazing. Does that serrated blade actually work? I really love the way those screw thumbstuds look on the opposite side of the blades.

I copied the serrations from an old colt knife that had the serrations laser cut into the blade, i assume after hardening, but the knife didnt seem popular so i would suspect they dont work that well, i havent tried to put a proper edge on it or the main blade but i will in time. In fact the only real advantage of this serration type is that its relatively easy to sharpen.

As for making any more...like this, definitely not, however i am working on a 1/4" square drive tool for the wave/charge and because i am planning to get the patterns water jet cut its very cost effective to do lots, so after some testing i may feel ready to sell some but that still demends on a large number of factors. Not least of which being whether or not a square drive is any real use without a ratcheting system but i endevour to find out. I feel it will depend on what is kept in the necessary accompanying socket/bit kit.

Thanks again for the kind words

Going to give this thread a kick to the top of the pile in the hope that Tofty is going to be bringing it to the meet-up. :pok:

Oh, and thought some folks might not have seen it and just might appreciate a look. 8)
