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...

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?

Logan-Pearce Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Geez, now I will have to conquer and capture facebook.

Oh, this one isn't going to be coated. It's basically a mock up. Just to see if there are any changes I want to make before making more like it.

Is that why the steel has a dullish texture?
Reply
:iconlogan-pearce:
Logan-Pearce Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yep! Since this knife isn't being coated, I made sure to have it as non-reflective as I possibly could.

Are you going to make a finished version of this one? The design fits my "MUST HAVE". xD

Yup! I plan on having a finished version in a few weeks. I'm still trying to decide on the handle material at the moment. It's the only piece that is missing.

First tactical knife I really like, somehow it speaks to me. :)

When I did my facebook account for my forge I made it a company account. This way I avoid the whole "friends" thing.
You could say, I don't have a facebook account, my anvil has one. ;)

Thanks, bro. One of the few tanto inspired knives that I actually enjoyed making.

Well I use to use my personal one a lot, but I stopped for a while, until I made my business page.

Me either. Well I like them, but it's one of those things I like the way they look, but I don't see myself really making them type of deal.

I really like the looks of this one. Is that handle material rubberized? I think I know what it is, but not sure. Beautiful knife.
Reply
:iconlogan-pearce:
Logan-Pearce Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
It's peel ply, G-10 I assume. It feels like fiberglass and looks like G-10. Haven't tasted it to be super sure yet. lol

LOL, It looks like that horse stall mat material that was on several blades at the custom knife show back in February.

The Arkansas show? Naw, it's not horse stall mat. I do have some of it though. lol. I couldn't help myself. I've yet to actually put it on a knife. I'm having a hard time talking myself into it.

:iconlioslaith01:
Lioslaith01 Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012
Yeah the Arkansas one. I think it would be a good handle on something you intended as a pure working knife. Like a skinner or a filet possibly.

Oh man. Did we meet? I didn't get a chance to look through all of the knives there.

Yeah, I was wanting to put it on a EDC or utility knife. I like the way it feels.

Potentially, where was your booth set up?

If it stays 'grippy' with blood or water on it then it'd be great, even some sort of bushcrafter.

In the back. :D I like to stay hidden when in public. I was on the outer edge. Like when you first come in I would have been on that first aisle if you went left or right, instead of walking straight. I say left or right, because there were two entrances. I wouldn't have been with all of the awesome makers. lol. I'm just a lowly n00b after all.

I'm definitely going to be putting it on something. I was considering it as a secondary option on my tactical knives, but idk.
