Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

Wow. That's one sexy knife. I love it. I think it's perfect for a small EDC fixed blade. Really well done, hopefully be contacting you soon. It's just a bit tight with the Covid-19 scare right now. I've been laid off at work so it makes things hard. Really though, great job. That makers mark is awe...

Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

Finished. I’ll say this one comes with a secret swedge because most people don’t seem to notice that it’s even there. Next time I’ll leave a gap between the swedge and the main bevel. I grinded this completely freehand which I’m feeling proud of. The blade is the last of the CPM154 I had, heat treat...

Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

Already posted this one, but I redid the acid wash, added a sharpening choil, final edge and my logo so I thought I should show the final product. https://i.imgur.com/QLQunUB_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium https://i.imgur.com/97MOiqv_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium

That tanto is gorgeous ! Is the blade acid washed ? This would look stunning as an inner pocket knife, à la Bud Nealy

Yup it’s an acid wash.

I’m gonna revisit making tiny knives that would fit in the pocket soon. Thanks Thom

Re: What happened to the Native III moulds?

Sal, now that I’m making my own stuff I actually know what .0003 means. That’s incredible. I’m learning a lot about finishes, grinds etc and it’s given me a huge appreciation for how well your knives are made.

Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

Coming a long way in a pretty short amount of time! Simply stunning LC, I think the EPOCH is my fav! Thanks so much! It definitely has a Yojimbo flavour to it, which isn’t surprising considering it’s one of my favourite Spyderco knives of all time. Tonight after work I finished up this tanto. It di...

Re: So, how are you staying busy during the lockdown?

Me, I’m playing with my kids and our new puppy. My wife and I try to watch movies after they go to bed. During the day on the weekends I’m in the garage trying to make knives and during the week I’m working from home. But really, it feels like business as usual for me as I’m quite the homebody.

Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

I hope everyone out there is staying safe during these crazy times. Been a little while so I thought I would share some of the stuff I’ve been working on. Recently I finished my first stainless blade using CPM154. I decided at the time to try out making a larger version of the Epoch (that’s what I’m...

Re: Biggest knife sins?

Pull through sharpeners, bench grinders, using them as screwdrivers/scrapers/prybars. With the exception of the TORMEK unit ( wet, water cooled grinder) nothing powered by electricity should ever be used on a knife.>> even a low quality knife deserves much better than that. How do you think these k...

Wife and I are working from home now. And yes, now that the border is shut I won’t be picking up any knives to bring home to Canada anytime soon.

Re: Grail Achieved, Slight Issue.

Not that this helps but this is one of the main reasons I stopped chasing older Spyderco knives. I would get my hands on an older model that was great in so many ways, but I could see the lessons Spyderco has learned that we’re missing from the older knife. That’s not really your case here as it’s a...

A salt UKPK is in the works as per Sal. Hopefully it gets a release at some point. I remember him saying the fork was a bit of an issue for a salt knife.

Re: BladeShow 2020!

Looks like I’ll be attending too. I hope I get to put a face to many of the folks here on the forum. I’m insanely excited as it will be my first real Blade Show. I went to Blade Show West last year and it was a lot of fun. I’m expecting this to blow it out of the water though.

I’d prefer if they were flat and didn’t come with speed holes. But they still look very nice.
