SHARDS

 I was asked by a good customer to make a Mini version of the Ti Shard. He wanted it to be a full grip knife but as small as possible and adapted to his hand size.

The Original Shard is 280 mm long:

It had to be reduced to 200 mm OAL, and I also decided to make it slightly narrower :

The final result is an ultralight blade weighting less than 30 grams. With a beautifully executed multi-grind (A.K.A. compound grind) and a well thought-out handle the Bladetricks Mini Shard is a compact EDC urban everyday carry backup neck knife with an excellent tip and a long slicing cutting edge.

Grade 5 Ti-6Al-4V titanium offers an excellent combination of lightness, high strength and toughness, while the carburized (tungsten carbide, 71 HRC) cutting edge provides an increased sharpness / edge retention.

THE CAT IS BACK!

 The HellCat Jab Hawk was one of my first tomahawks designs when I became a full time knife maker back in 2010. During all these years the model has been evolving in my head. Several new versions came up, and I opted for the most loyal to the original model:


Tactical tomahawk

Knife maker tomahawk

Best CQC EDC tomahawk V grind

For the handle, I wanted to try a new material instead of the traditional micarta or G10 that I generally use. Even if not so popular among makers and after some research and testing I concluded that FRN (Glass Reinforced Nylon) was the way to go for many reasons:

It is very tough
It is a much lighter material
It is easy to work
The look and feel is great.
Easy to find

The only downside of FRN I found is that it cannot be glued, meaning that it can only be mechanically attached to the handle section.

Thicker than usual copper pins were used to secure the hand sculpted black FRN handle scales to the handle.


The final result is a well balanced, easy to carry and efficient compact tomahawk.
