…From one of our own. I have seen firsthand the birth of this knife making company started from a garage workshop and now on its way to bigger and better things. Gary is a skilled knife smith that truly creates a one of a kind, quality weapon. MAKES TEAM KNIVES TOO!

Oh damn... the picture of the two 'posers' is too funny... 'posers' due to the picture... and in Gary's case there is a second meaning. Please do not crush me like a grape, and that goes for the other guy in the picture too.

Gary - your knives suck, because I don't have one, yet.:D
Next year - I think Gary wins the OKC knife grinding competition and walks away with the Best in Show knife there too.... but his knives still suck.:p


eta: his knives don't suck anymore as of 6/18/2011

Hmmm... I dont even know how to respond to that.:) As far as the problem you stated.. I sent you my address and I may have something here for ya. I am pretty sure you have split personality disorder though and one of you likes me the other.... well the other one has a prison shank (or even worse one of my own knives) waiting to stick me. ;)

The lovely and talented Mrs. Crusader sent verification pictures of your "poserness" that will not be posted here... but did make the HH6 and me laugh. The comments above were for comic relief only, well except for the crushing me part, and winning OKC grinding competition next year.

I will make it to the CrusaderTemple soon... work has been a bit hectic... when I show, what does the miniCrusader-Actionman like in the way of crunchy chewies or toys?

Oh... gotcha HA ... thats actually pretty funny. Didnt realize you had such incriminating evidence. Actually it's all good. It was fun and we had fun training for it that is till the last two weeks where I was starving and thirsty, I wasnt much fun to be around thats for sure. I know life's busy, you just let me know when you and the Mrs can make it out... the invitation stands. Oh.. and look at us.. we'll eat anything!

Up above ^^^^are a couple of pics of some fine work by CrusaderSteel... I'm really liking the 'forge finish' it subdues the blade nicely and adds a character that makes each knife absolutely unique. In the first pic - the maker's edc is up top and my newly acquired Melton Knife and Design sharp pointy thing is the lower one. The second pic is the obverse view of the lower knife, the slag burn on the blade adds a really nice 'birthmark' and matches the handle really well.

This design is not big, about 6 1/8" overall, split almost exactly between handle and blade. It balances very well, even though it is weighted to the handle, and the blade is 1 1/8" edge to spine from just in front of the choil (?), finger cut (?), handle relief (?) to the roll for the forward drop to the edge. The blade has some characteristics of a ULU, and of a competition chopper combined with the dexterity of a good caping knife or skinner. The handle design is a "3 finger lenth" and solid as a rock in your hand due to the ... um, see description above... it's great but it fits all 3 descriptions... I can't wait to see how it works for all of the tasks I have planned for it... including using the spine as a pry bar.

A concealable horizontal kydex sheath came with it and there is a skeletonized version that I've seen and held... this is an amazing piece of work... order yours now befre there is a 3 month waiting period, you will not be sorry.

Now I just need to dig up cash for the Bravo Smash... and get some bucks together for the large Combat Bowie ... This is great, now I have another crack dealer, um I mean knife maker... yeah, that's it, knife maker... to be in hock to...

Hi, I'm the Troll, I have a knife addiction....

Gary will dominate the grinding competition by just pinching the blade like wet clay into whatever form he wants.
