I like that a lot - did you cold blue or hot blue? I suspect cold, but it would be great if it was hot :)

its just cold blued, its pretty hard wearing though on previous knives i'v used it on. i give it 3 separate applications rinsing and degreasing between coats, the final finish of the steel is important, around 600 grit gives a more even finish. buffing with an oily rag finishes it.

The finish looks stunning - I meant only that the hot blue confers a little more protection. Great knife and nice kydex too.

Nice job! They'd never issue ones like that, would they? QMS would never let go of such lovely looking kit :cool:

I'm a big fanboy of the real thing, and I love to see interpretations of military issue knives! any chance you can do an Ontario pilot survival knife? Stacked leather handle, big skull basher pommel but with a decent blade that isn't as soft as butter.


Looks lovely to be fair!-id like the hilt? To protrude slightly (like on a F1) -let me know if you make a few :)

I also reckon slight finger guards, bolsters and finger choils are the bees mobile trocho-ginglymus's! lol
