    Thank you! I agree, he has some good taste. He plans on using it, so that was the driving force, I believe.

    True story. Beginning October 1, I am going to start adding a "Teasle Surcharge" to each knife. This is to cover incidentals like ripped jeans, sutures, and canvas tarp clothing.

    You may be right...that would explain why he requested that I not actually put an edge on his knives.o_O:confused:

    Here are a couple more pics. This SAFE System II has an aluminum handle, as opposed to the usual steel, to cut a little more weight and make it trail friendly.

    It also has a blade just under 3/16" thick, and was ground to be a slicer. No GunKote on this one, per client request. It worked out well, the knife came in under 10 oz. Very pleased!

    Here's a pic or two of the P.A.L. Knife- Personal Attaché, Lightweight. Very pleased with this prototype, and the sculpted/machined handle came out exactly as I was hoping. And who doesn't love skull crusher pommels!:D:D

    I usually put a slightly thicker (but not thick) edge on "tactical" type knives, in case they are used in unforgiving circumstances. But the edge is still quite keen, in my opinion.:):)

    Finished a few more SSII Kodiaks recently. Really enjoy making these, and they bring a lot of functionality to a reasonably sized package.
