    I was feeling kinda Tactical these week, so I made a couple of my favorite models. The bigger one is my B.D.U. Scout and the chubby one is my ED Tac Bowie. I gave them kind of a retro military feel with OD Green G10 and red liners. The pins are carbon fiber. They have a blued/stonewashed finish and I also blued the tang all the way around.

    All comments are welcome, thanks for looking!

    Very nice, the bigger one looks very practical/tactical.

    I gifted your 'Sinister II' to a family member.

    I like the looks of the larger knife quite a bit. If I were going to design a custom knife, I would want an 8 inch blade with about 3 inches on the top side of the blade sharpened. Then I could get all warm and fuzzy over a knife like that. I realize that an 8 inch blade is longer than many people like though, and it depends on whether I was looking for a general purpose camp knife, or a camp knife that would so partial duty as a weapon.

    I think many people forget that almost any knife, even a "fighting knife" will probably spend 99% of its using time as a general purpose tool, rather than as a weapon.
