Cool! That Reese Weiland is a chunky little sucker. ;-)a Has me recalling that when the tactical theme started it was nearly unheard of to use 1/4" .250 bar stock in a folder. The frame lock using 1/8" or 3/16" liners. Although Chris Reeve's Sebenza of the time were using thicker Ti which was followed by many makers.

It's a beastly thing, but oh so fun to carry. Had it at work today, didn't feel it in the pocket, but knew it was there. Cut cardboard and banding like a champ. Had a little struggle through shrink wrap but did fine. I noticed a slight curve to the edge, but I can fix that with some re-profiling if I find it necessary. The only real drawback is the width...the scales are so far apart you can easily get your fingers in there and cut the heck out of them if you aren't careful. Had to make sure when I put my hand in my pocket I kept it against the scale and not where the edge was.

Playing with an idea I had for this jigsaw dragon I made a long time ago. It typically hangs on my office wall, and while looking at it one I day I had the idea to put some carbon fiber on it and use it as a background. Not quite refined, the grey carbon fiber was a quick lay on cardboard and it shows, and the dragon isn't as good as I hoped it would be...but then again it was just a random thought I had


Does it work at all?

I've had the CRKT Pilar for a while now, just recently bought the Pilar III, and decided if I had two I might as well get the third. CRKT Pillar II...so I got them out of order, so what...

Iconic knife! Herman Schneider did some fantastic work in the industry. Much how Jimmy Lile and Gil Hibben did for the Rambo knives.

This is one of Gil's limited pieces I'd photographed in '06 featuring Linda Karst's scrimshaw. Shot on film with the Bronica 645.

It's a POS for sure. An old movie "Cobra" with Sly Stallone...the bad guy had a knife like this. Popular back in the day, but obviously crap if it's been in the garage for so long without me remembering I owned it.

You've got some really nice pieces, thanks for sharing. I've got Bill Ankrom folder, scrimmed by Linda, with a tiger, engraving by Fred Harrington.

Beautiful! Have long liked Bill's work! Linda's scrim as well. I've not seen much of Fred's work though know his reputation spoken by others. Thanks for sharing that. How long have you had that knife?

I've had this since the mid 90s, ordered it at one of the NY shows. I've become good friends with Bill and have owned at least a dozen of his knives.
