    ......yes he is real, Sydney Northern Beaches boy if I remember correctly. He rarely returns now and is somewhat estranged from his remaining family here. The original Mad Max (set in 2021 !!!!!) was what we in my small country town called “Friday Night” !!! :D Often heard screamed by the frightened masses was “run - the weirdos are coming”!

    .......old Uncle Chop Chop was a great pretender !!! He learned in the early 90s that there was an appetite for his “stories” and sorting the fact from fiction was something else. Melbourne’s underworld was quite different from Sydney’s for many many years but they now both present much the same. For example Sydney would just not have tolerated Carl Williams and his antics. But there was a time that Melbourne would not have either. A more gentlemanly manner of business allowed such as him to thrive.

    ...... ahhhh the Kellys yes well don’t forget your legs are not bullet proof !!!! And the “goon bag” is one of Australia’s great inventions !!! I have fallen for many a girl with one tucked under her arm at the party !!!

    Here are a few pics of this latest W.U.R.Knife I completed (Wilson Utility and Recreation Knife). This one has a blade of CPM154 stainless steel, stainless guard, aluminum handle, and aluminum buttcap w/skull crusher pommel.

    It has a hollow ground blade, black GunKote finish, and tan cord wrap. I'm very pleased with how the whole package came out. Feel free to leave any feedback or comments/questions. Thank you!

    Don't think I posted this one yet, a S.A.F.E. System I that was completed earlier this year. Has about all the options, hollow ground CPM154 stainless, steel plated buttcap, micarta handle sleeve, Basic Survival Kit, and GunKote finish. Ready for action!

    ....... I can get past the knife because of that Old School Tigerstripe in the background. It may not work in too many environments but it sure looks cool !

    Been awhile, but the move out of Portland is done and getting settled in the new place/shop. A little slow at first, but producing knives again.

    Here's an M7 I just finished. This one has 440C stainless (great steel, try and prove me wrong:):)), M.O.A. System, functional sawteeth, and a few other options. Also has an optional ferro rod handle. I really like the tan handle wrap, also.

    Thank you! I am really loving this GunKote finish, as well. Added it about 18 months ago, and love it so far.
