I’m worried I’m walking a fine line here sharing information here about the knives I make since this is a Spyderco forum. If this isn’t appropriate please, someone from Spyderco let me know.

So after a lot of thought I decided to change my brand. The cobra thing wasn’t working. I decided to go with something friendlier and more approachable as a knife maker. I plan on making fun colourful designs so the angry venomous snake just wasn’t going to work. Since I’m a huge space nerd and well, monkeys are awesome...

Cool name and logo. I love it! ;)

Made another wharncliffe after work tonight. This time with peel ply g10. Neato.

I don’t know why, but I like the small fixed blades. Has Spyderco ever made a tiny fixed blade for edc?

LC, your knives look awesome and inspiring. Recently I thinned a Benchmade puukko. It turned out great, but nothing like what you have going on. Keep up the great work.

First attempt playing with CF today. I’ve decided to call this knife the Epoch since it’s sort of my first official design.

I actually really liked it. It seems to be easy to work with but pretty dirty. The end product is worth the mess though.

For sure, it’s a favorite material of mine too. But it is very messy, as you said. Some folks prefer to wet sand on CF to help reduce the dust. 👍

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 calling my small wharncliffe design). I’m happy with the results so I’ve got another one on the go as well as a tanto that I’ve shown below.

As always, thanks for looking.

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 didn’t quite turn out like I had envisioned but I certainly made some

Yup it’s an acid wash.

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