We're in Atlanta at the moment and looking forward to setting up for the 2012 Blade which starts tomorrow at noon. Here are two more knives that Scott finished just before we left - a tactical EMc Xtra and a 10-inch French Chef.
I didn't have much time to take photos, but here are a couple of shots.
Finish: Parkerized with hand-sanded bevels
Overall Length: 10 1/4 inches
Blade Length: 5 1/4 inches
Handle: Scalloped Micarta
Sheath: Black Kydex with full shoulder holster rig
Scott Parkerized the entire EMc Xtra, then hand-sanded the bevels to a 120 grit finish.
The knife in the video is a collaboration piece recently completed by Conner McGhee and his father E. Scott McGhee (an ABS journeyman smith). This blade, dubbed the Guillotine, will be on display at the 2012 Blade Show in Atlanta along with some of Scott's knives. It's a brand new camp knife, not a dedicated chopper. Conner is the "chopper," and he's 9 years old.
Finish: Belt-finished scandi grind
Overall Length: 15 3/8 inches
Blade Length: 10 inches
Handle: Brown canvas Micarta
This is the first double-signed father-son collaboration knife out of Guinea Hog Forge, but we hope it won't be the last. We'll use this double signature until we can get Conner his own mark.
Conner was planning to sell the Guillotine at Blade, but Grandpa McGhee purchased it before we could get it in the case. He said we could show it off at the show but better bring it back!
