Customized Al Mar Payara with Green Inferno Kirinite handle

Customized Al Mar Payara with Green Inferno Kirinite handle

This is a new color being distributed by Eagle Grips, I believe it is Green Inferno. I was sent a set of scales to try on an Al Mar Payara.  It works very easily with standard belt grinders.  As it heats up it tends to warp but as it cools it always comes back to straight.  I ground it down to about .125 before putting it on this Payara.   I would like to get some comments on the material and the color.  Is it something you would carry?   Thanks Kirk

IMG_2878IMG_2874Once again I have been busy prepairing for the Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade show, or S.H.O.T. show as it is called.  It is a dealers only show that all the companys in the trade come to and present there product.  It is held in various places throught the country but will be in Las Vegas this year and for several years to come.    As always I will be attending with Al Mar the knife company, we will set up our booth on the main floor and have many beautiful knives to display.  One new product I have been working on this year is customizing there Eagle Classic folder with Elk antler.  Now this isn’t just any Elk antler, it is sheds from the Elk Song ranch in Oregon.  The top picture shows the donor antlers and the lower photo shows five of the finished knives.  They will be availible through Al Mar exclusivly.   I will be in Vegas for 7 days so be looking for more on the show when I return.  I will try and take lots of photo’s to post so you can get a feel for the show.   There is a larger picture of the five knives on my home page and Featured knife.  Thanks for looking and check back.

Al Mar Mammoth tooth Classic Eagle

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

DSCN7774 Here are Five Eagle Classics with beautiful Mammoth Tooth scales that were commissionedby Al Mar Knives. Through my design work for the company it was decided that I should do a few custom handles. These will be done in a very limited number.  The mammoth tooth is all natural colors, they where not dyed to achieve the different shades of brown with white bands. Mammoth tooths is kind of tricky to work with as it is thin and prone to crack and break.  I glue the scales to a .015 thick piece of black fiber material.  This stabilizes it and helps it hold to the handle when glued up also.  It is ground very thin once it is glued to the knife, then sanded down to 800 grit and polished.  It takes on such a shine you can look right into it.  If you have any questions or comments about mammoth tooth and it’s properties just let me know.  These knives will be for sale by Al Mar Knives and are headed for the S.H.O.T. show.  Thanks for looking                      Kirk

Site Launch

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010


DSCN7427I Just finished this Custom Al Mar Havana Clipper and sent it to a collector in Germany.  The Clipper is a great little knife with many uses, not just the snipping of cigars.  This one has explosion damascus blade, white Mammoth ivory handle with ivory in the thumb stud.  Gold anodized titanium liner with full filework.  A true one of a kind piece.

   I have some other factory Al Mar’s that I have been customizing that I will be posting.  They will be going to the S.H.O.T. show for display and sale.  So check  back  for a sneak preview.


The site is up and running, although it has a few issues that we have to get figured out.  I will be posting photo’s of projects that I am working on and interesting events that I’ve been to.  Look forward to the S.H.O.T. show 2010 that is coming up the middle of January.  I have been working on some customized Al Mar knives and also some custom 888 Professional blades that can’t be shown yet.  Merry Christmas to all.  If you have any questions or comments please leave them.  Thanks
