I can't recall shooting this one of Gary Blanchard's. Picked this one up back in '98 at the Knifemakers Guild Show when it was in Las Vegas. Any knife nuts in So. Cal may want to look up the California Custom Knife Show that will be Oct 26-27'th at the Embassy Suites in Anaheim. Lots of sharp stuff to spend your $$ on. :)

More practice with another layer. Probably would have been better off masking then I wouldn't have the softer blend. Ah...next round, I'm tired. ;) The biggest PITA is getting the pantographed signature to show on the blade. Same challenge as above with the Blanchard piece. Figured out how to do that so shooting these became much easier. :)

Hawaii maker Scot Matsuoka flippers. The Calif Custom Knife Show was fun and was nice to catch-up with our friends. A bit of toning on the last one since it seems monochrome with the bare titanium handles.

Spent most my time at Mel Nishiuchi's table. This was one of his stone handled liner locks.

Nice! But, it looks like a nightmare to sharpen.

Jimmy Fikes is quite a legend in the world of custom knives, especially with folks that like forged pieces. This is his "Cabin Boy" model, very rare in Wharnclille, might be the only one.

Very nice. What is the material used to wrap the handle please? Doesn't look like paracord.


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

Wish I could tell you and getting ahold of Jimmy is near impossible. I know it's impregnated with an epoxy and stands up to use. He uses a green wrap a lot, looks like same material.

The first custom knife I bought, a Mel Pardue made late 80's. An early flipper type that if it had the lower blade tab-lug would be spot on. Sold it about 7 years ago.
