it's been a long time!

Postby lerman » Mon May 20, 2013 4:03 pm

Hello everyone,
it's been a few years since i last posted anything and i felt like i owe you guys an update since this place was a home for me for many years, and spyderco is what started my knife addiction.

so it's been years since i bought my last knife and i did sell a big part of my collection, but it's all for a good cause, i'm now officially a full time knife maker, some of you might remember me posting my designs here whan i was a teenager, it was my dream then and it's reality now.

here are some of my works

Hey, lerman. Welcome back, bud. :D

Glad to see you have been busy in your absence. Those are some very good-looking knives. Do you have a website?

Welcome back, Lerman. Very nice knives, by the way! Beautiful hammon lines in pics 2 and 7. Do you use W2 steel by chance?

Those are some beautiful edged tools. Please share your website or just post more about what evolutions your skill has gone through. I love the carbon fiber handled model in the trio photo and the Wharncliffe / hawk at the bottom of your post is causing my radar to go off like crazy!

I think you have a very bright future and the liquidation of your collection is certainly paying dividends. Exceptional work!!!

on the second pic it's not a hamon, it's a stainless and CPM D2 san-mai, and on the seventh pic it's a hamon on F3 silversteel

Lerman,

Welcome back. I am glad to see the level of skills, which you achieved. It is very impressive, especially considering your age.
Do you have any plans to make locking folders?

hi Roman, how are you?
i have alot of folder designs waiting to be made, i started with fixed blades because thats what you do when you start making knives, but folders is the dream, and my next goal is making liner locks.
