So......this was waiting on me in a box from Texas!! Holy Crap this knife from @tpcustombladeworks is absolutely hands down my most favorite knife. Weighing in at almost 3/4 of a pound, this knife has a perfect weight balance for my hands and for what I will use it for. I usually carry a bushcraft style knife and use it for about everything. From sharpening no.2 pencils to butchering half a hog, which I actually have done with the exception of using a saw for bones. He custom made the handles using pine cones and white acrylic. So before you scroll off this post stop by @tpcustombladeworks and look at the process in his posts of this build. I believe he is going to make a video later of this build and if you like this knife, ask him for a quote. I promise you that you will be amazed!!! Tony is super easy to work with and communicated with me through out the whole process. #nofilter #pinecone #alumilite #440csteel #stainlesssteel #workofart #masterpiece #customknives #pineconehandle #texas #texasmade #texasknifemaker #bushcraftknife #beautiful #nc #tpcustombladeworks #littlebeardesigncompany #edc #everydayknife #wildernessgear #wildernesstools @apachesolutionsllc @sololeathergoods

“Of Ice and Snow”

This was the very first piece the two of us worked on together! It’s amazing how art can evoke certain feelings or recall memories. This piece, and its cousin, did just that! Even before we started layering and blending the layers, the colours spoke for itself. As we saw the lacing appear, and the colours blend, we were taken back to our some of the best memories of our first adventure together: walking along #Reynisfjara, in #Iceland. That particular #Blacksandbeach has long been a highlight to our collective #Bucketlist, and it was quite a surreal experience just stand there and take it all in. We brought back a bottle of black sand, some of which was embedded in the resin! This particular piece went to a dear friend of ours, who also followed in our footsteps a few months later...when it was a bit warmer, and had less blizzards! .

On the negative side:
-This didn't come out close to spherical.
On the plus side
+I was able to chuck it up after turning the piece 90 degrees, with essentially no scarring, tight enough the I could use gouges to knock down corners, without it coming loose
+The sponge-like block of maple dried enough to take the cactus juice and stabilize
+I was able to create interesting streaks of color with my acrylic.
.
I think 3:1 is a pretty good ratio. This would be similar in size and weight to a croquet ball (near softball size for anyone who is not familiar with croquet ball)

"Underwater"
This was one of the first pieces that we worked on together. I initially hated the first layer, and was ready to give up on it entirely. But, after I calmed down and added a second layer, I really loved the results! .

Here is the finished knife. It is pretty. The knife only weighs 5oz and an over all length of 10.5in. That's a nice weight for a long pack through the woods. The iron wood handle was part of the piece I filled with Alumilite on a previous post. I'll have to get some better pictures of the handle. It deserves it.

Alumilite Resin and Koa Bottle Opener 
Here's is the final product. This piece turned or beautifully. The resin is in stark contrast to the wood and the difference between sap and heart wood adds such a nice touch. I really like the new bottle opener kits I'm using and this piece is sure to go quick at the next show.

Cored Blanks

The larger mold is a little short so they piece isn't a total square, but the blanks work great. These set up perfectly hard and will make some awesome work. You can see the difference between wood and resin and that difference will only get better with a better shape and good finish.

“Yellow Brick Road” 
There were a lot of firsts with this piece. In previous attempts, we set out to do a piece with a rich forest-green as the colour of focus. Unfortunately, the green dye we used came out too close on the blue side. We decided to go with #acrylicinks on this one, but found that mixing the various greens really helps to highlight and accentuate each respective hue. We then tried a few splashes of #alcoholink. This was also the first time we tested out pearl-ex’s #interferenceblue. We need more interference!

Resin Casting

Over the holiday I did a bunch of resin casting as my resin is starting to kick off. This set of pours was a maple bottle stopper double blank and a koa bottle opener. The pieces are wedged into place so they can't float and then the resin is mixed and poured before they are rushed into the pressure pot. There's only 7 minutes between the two reins mixing and getting under pressure, so it's a relatively fast process. Once in the pot, I'll let them sit overnight to cure. They don't have to sit that long but I was casting these while family was over so I wasn't in a rush to get another cast in.

“Jupiter’s Eye”

Red has always been my favourite colour, so I always get really excited when red pieces work out so well! I originally wanted to go for a red and white palette, but resin has a mind of its own, and went in a pleasantly different direction. We mixed in some Orange #glowinthedark UV powder, courtesy of @technoglow . I couldn’t get a proper picture of the glow, but I gotta say that I am absolutely amazed at what happens when the lights go out. This was also the first time we worked with Pearl Ex’s #aztecgold, and I gotta say, we’re hooked! 
Final note: courtesy of a lone strand of hair in the resin, I might want to explore the #stringmethod a bit more. Loving the lessons each pour teaches us!

Last nights casting cut into some blanks. These things are amazing. The color is super intense. Love the silver and copper swirls with a hint of burgundy. If you are interested in any of these blanks or any past casting let me know. Stabilizing some wood now so look out for some hybrids.

Bottle Opener Mold

I needed a new mold for resin bottle opener blanks. I use harbor freight cutting boards and stainless steel hardware. Since the boards are hdpe, the resin does not stick to them so there is no need for mold release. The mold is rather simple but works perfectly for it's interned job
