"Lock Bar Carbidizing"

Hello all,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving?
Well, I'm at the shop today milling the outside profiles on the new Nebuli blades.
While they are cycling, I have 4 1/2 minutes of idle time.
I decided to multitask, and carbidize the lock bar faces on the Titanium frames.
Carbidizing puts a thin layer of carbide on to the Ti hence making it more wear resistant when the lock bar engages against the hardened S30V knife blade.
Here's a quick video of the process.

"Translucent Green G-10 Lanterns"

Hi all,
So I was walking past the stock rack at the shop the other day, and saw this 1/2" diameter rod of Translucent G-10 sitting there. A light bulb moment occurred, let's make a Self  Lighting Gas Lantern with this stuff.
I machined it all up, inserted the vial, then ran to the bathroom with the lights off to check it out.
Yep, just as I thought, not only do you get the light from the viewing holes, but the G-10 itself glows as well:)
They were tough to photograph, and are quite more impressive in person.
.500 diameter * 1.500 long Translucent G-10.
3mm * 23mm SLGV.
#10-32 stainless steel socket set screw drilled thru for additional vial viewing.
20 viewing ports.
 Black Paracord lanyard.
I have 2 0 available out of the 4 prototypes made. !!SOLD!!
USA price is $95.00.
If you'd care to make a purchase, just send an Email to:
Happy Thanksgiving,

This will include Pay Pal fees, and insured USPS Priority Mail.
Other destinations $330.00, and be forewarned I'm not responsible for the package once I post it.

"The Butcherette"

Hey there all,
I had some time at the shop today while one of the Machining Centers was cycling, so I decided to try my hand at a Necker type knife.
Material is CPM S30-V, and overall size is .140 * 1.000 * 3.000.
I still need to send the 4 I made off to Heat Treat, give em a bit of a tumble, then add the final edge. Oh yeah, gotta do some Kydex sheaths too.
I'm not certain if there will be a production run, gotta give them the field test first.
Thanks for taking the time to have a look,
