The little lady bug was accidental, lol
The MP-1 I am afraid to lose, lol
The Extrema Ratio is today’s carry. I think that will stay there for a bit.

Spent some quality time with my SpydieChef today, flat-polished the presentation scale to a near mirror finish then flamed it. First time I’ve had it apart, nicely made internally with a solid pin for a blade stop and bronze bearings. The ano coloration is not exactly what I was planning but all in all I’m happy with it, took plenty of time anyway. lol

Amazing! I love the spydiechef. And you can get blue titanium screws for it on ebay.

Koenig Arius, Custom built with CTS 204P blade steel, DLC coated flat grind blade with polished flats, DLC coated furniture… including the Ti backspacer and Ti clip.

The Ti scales are custom anodized purple per my request as well.

I re-sharpened it today to 17º per side and polished this new edge to a near mirror finish. WICKED!

I am suddenly having the urge to get a new knife…. again…. This and my favorite 2A store and just called me to let me know my long waiting (at least 2 months ) order is in. Good thing I have been saving up. LOL

Y’know, I “read” that 3, 4, 5 times, and I kept seeing “Koenig Anus”. Sick

Methinks they should see their product names in print first before committing.

 

Looks like a really knice nife otherwise. Big Smile

I am not big on the metal grips, but otherwise the blade on that one are just fine ( also dont like what i call movie blades / blades with elaborate curves )

Most blades of mine have been hollow grind, just by chance its not really anything i look for, and i have no idea if its a Scandinavian thing, and besides i dont have any knifes made in this immediate area.
The knifes i made myself in my younger days when i had access to steel and a forge and associated machinery was all hollow grind too.

What sort of knives did you make?
I bought a couple of old files at the local flea market so sooner or later I’ll give it a try too. Smile

I became partial to Titanium scales in a frame-lock aspect years ago, there’s just so little to wear out or damage. And with our intense summers sweat damage is a real issue, the salt content from the sweat wreaks havoc on pocket knives. So this one was sought out, for it’s CTS 204P blade as much as the Ti scales… the design that fits the hand so well just reached out and grabbed me so I kind of had to call the knife maker and have a chat with him. Bill’s a great guy, his customer service is up there on a level not often seen today.
Very pleased with my Koenig, may well sell off a couple of Brous blades and a Medford SUK to appease the wife. Wink

Mostly based on the Bowie shape, but i also did a few in the conservative Scandinavian shape like Mora and Puukko.
Nothing special and sold most of them off to hunters in the family or friends of theirs, dont have a single one for myself.

While red hot metal and beating on it was not on the curriculum in my apprenticeship as a machine worker, then i spent most of my time doing non related things.
blades, did a few conversions of guns, and a little shine work on guns too.
Wanted to move on to become a gunsmith, but i was not allowed to join or serve my countries armed forces, and the private sector here for those kind of jobs are near to null.

It was harder back then as this was in the 80ties before the inter-web, so if you wanted to convert a M1 carabin then you had to hit the books ordered via more or less known magazines Innocent

All illegal of course, but pretty much anything fun are that here, so a man have to be creative and operate outside the constrictions of Danish society.
Me carrying a tiny little Ganzo pocket knife are also really naughty by me.

Nowadays it’s much easier to find tutorials about knife making for sure. You should have kept one of those blades as a relic of your knife making times! Smile
What’s about the Danish knife laws? Wasn’t there some sort of liberation a couple of years ago?

There was some changes not long ago, but i think that was more to allow for workers to have a exact o knife in their work pants and so on.
The 80 – 90 mm blade of a little folding knife are still a no go.

Some years ago they banned all but the smallest caliber air rifles due to some kids/ youth shooting at people with w .22 PCP air rifle, so the same stupid again ruin it for every one when a few make a mistake.

I was fortunate to learn a lot from one of the old black smiths, so for knife making i dident have to hit the books that hard.

The old smitty did put his foot down when i turned up with a nice length of Bofors steel wanting to make a samurai sword, so i cut it in 3 and made 3 nice stilettos instead.
Those 3 went like hot cakes among the gangster idiots i wasted my time with in those days, as if any of those pussies was ever man enough to walk up behind a person and plunge a knife into anyone Facepalm
Actually the only gun action we ever saw was some idiot shooting himself in the foot.
Silencers sold well too, and all you need are a .22 and then press it against the skull before pulling trigger, no can needed for offing a person in broad daylight.

If I had a dollar for every one of those little Swiss Army knives I’ve lost during my lifetime, I’d have at least enough to buy another one. I can’t keep track of those things to save my life.

I too have plans to start knifemaking from old files!

I’ve been collecting files for several years, buying at tag sales, estate sales etc. I only buy the vintage USA made ones. I’ve got probably around 150-175 or so, a lot of really large ones, I want to make some big survival, Jungle types. But I’ve got many medium and small too. I’ve always admired the Anza knives.

.
I’ve already got an HFT belt grinder to monkey around with, (a lot of beginners start with it) plus I have cut off saws, a floor drill press, bench grinders etc etc. that I’ve had for years (I tinker with motorcycles, auto repairs etc.) If I get into it I’m planning to sell almost all my knives to buy a proper belt grinder.

Got a few books, and been following knife makers on Youtube, and I’ve designed some patterns on paper I want to make. I’ve also been studying on making sheaths, both leather and kydex. It’s something I’m planning to do in retirement! But I hope to get started sooner!

.
On You Tube I’ve always liked this guy, (Gavco Knives) followed his videos around 5-6 years ago:

I also like this lady (Kaila Cumings): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5s0TsAfDlI

Here’s a couple of really cool vids for your viewing pleasure!:

So the knife situation isn’t getting better but at least the Danish people are the happiest ones in the world according to several surveys. Wink

Mentioning gangsters I think I’ll have to watch the movie “Pusher” (1996) again to get to know more about the Danish crime scene. Big Smile

Wow, thanks a lot for the links! Thumbs Up
I also bought a mini belt sander but I’m afraid it’s not good for any serious job. The other thing which still keeps me away is the heat treatment process. I must read/watch more tutorials about it before I’m ready to go.
