Sweet looking knives!! I like the work and your style.

I read a book about knife fighting authored by Hank Reinhardt.

According to him, you have put yourself at a disadvantage by gripping a knife in that fashion. It costs you reach.

I wouldn't know myself, I don't practice the art.
Excellent craftsmanship by the way!

Those are awesome. What tools did you use to make them? A grinder? Id like to make my own knives one day.

Thanks y'all! I normally use Wilton/Jet 2x72s.

I guess it depends on "knife fighting" and sneaking & sticking etc.

I subscribe to a different thought process... Put 'Em Down, Take 'Em Out!: Knife Fighting Techniques From Folsom Prison by Don Pentecost

Towards the latter of his life fairbairn started moving towards filipino style fighting blades. I believe eventually he would have landed on a P'kal version of a blade.

Ill check that book out. Sounds like a good read Slug. Thanks!

Slug nice work. Very clean. Do you make a lot of filipino designs? Do you make trainers as well?

Thank y'all

I don't do too many as I'm not big on large blades but the P'Kal style I will have more and more of over time.

On trainers yes I do as well as full nons.

What's full nons?

Nice work bro.

I was at the Shivworks EWO course in Sac last November. Ended up "rethinking" a good chunk of what I learned in 5 years of traditional FMA.

All my EDC is pretty much pikal-only now. By a strange coincidence, I happen to be Visayan.

I've got a few blades from Ban Tang who is also a Shivworks practitioner and pikal advocate.

Dumb question but is the sharp edge facing down in the top pics? I like the look but Im wondering where the edge is. Good job BTW.

At first I was having a hard time trying to figure out how to "deploy" that knife but the more I research it, the more that knife is becoming very dangerous. I would hate to be on the receiving end of that blade up close (ie; having my back muscles ripped to shreds).

nice work $lug, do you have a website I could check out?

Very nice work slug. I'm a fan of Southnarc and his reverse edge defense material. That design is right up his alley.

05-02-2014, 12:02 PM
Thanks everyone. I like Soutnarc's instructional videos a lot as well. He does not manufacture his own tools however (they are made overseas) but maybe someday he will get back around to that. I figure plenty of room in the market place.

All the best,
