Recon preview. by Logan-Pearce Recon preview. by Logan-Pearce
:la: :la: :la: Facebook me! :la: :la: :la:


I've been on a 'friending' binge, of all the people that liked my Pearce Knives' page. It was fun, because I got to see where a lot of your are from. I enjoyed it so much that I just went crazy and started adding all kinds of people....

then it said it would ban me from using the adding friends thing. :O

I wonder if that stupid friend suggesting thing would go away then. -.- I hate when it tells me who I want to be friends with. You don't own me Facebook!!!

Anyway, I got a little carried away, but in all seriousness it was a blast. Just fun see who likes my stuff and where they are from.

Now! About the knife:

Recon! Yay. It's my tactical tanto.

I was trying for a double hamon, which I did get if you look close enough. The plan was to have most of the knife black and then the bottom part lighter colored. Instead, it was exactly the opposite. >.>

Not a big deal though. This was really just a test knife. As the handle material used here is what I plan on using on Backup. It's textured....but I wanted to see how much of a pain it was going to be once I put the pins on. I don't want to end up having screws on my tactical knives, but if I keep using this material, I will probably have to.

I do like the material a lot though. The way the texture feels is just awesome. Since I do use smaller pins on my Backup, I might be able to figure something out to keep as much of that texture as possible.

Again, just playing with materials/designs/etc. As for Recon itself, it will have a matte black coated blade like all of my tactical knives. I'm not sure on the handle yet though.




In other stuff: One of the two Avatars will be posted tomorrow. :D So you'll get a break from my Remnant Knives and Tactical Knives at least for a day.




Doooo it!! :iconcreepylaaplz:

Really dig the taper of the blade with the tanto point, different from most where the blade doesn't have much taper to the end...
The handle looks great with the file work/jimping the bottom side as well.

Motivated me to dig out some of my old partially finished blades and grab a file and see if I can make some more progress on them, and just made my own Kydex press and started playing with it a little bit...

Thank you! I don't do a lot of tanto inspired stuff, but I do like this one.

They do own the information you give them. I deleted mine long ago, for other reasons actually.

Why sharpen it before putting on the coating?
