    Ready to start my 2017 knife season up. Gonna make a 14" Bowie/chopper to start out. Gonna use D2 tool steel (has become my favorite blade metal as it's hard as hell and doesn't need treatment with kid gloves) and a wood/metal/composite handle. Will post some pics when I get started:flag::flag:.

    Thanks, Dan!
    Don't forget, your invited down here to hunt turkeys this year again, just let me know.

    If the birds are as hot as they were last year, look out. I killed two boss toms last year in about 5 days.

    Well, finally gave up on my sander build and bought a partial one. Got it working yesterday after a week of making small parts that it needed.
    After 3 months of useless work, i'm again ready to start my "bowie chopper."

    One like that around $100.00 with a homemade sheath. For you, much less.
    Also less for anyone on this site.:flag::flag:
