A while back I bought a blank and a handle ( the factory has shut and production has ceased) . It was a good price , I had the blank ground by a member on another forum and obtained a pommel and lanyard eye . The bolster eluded me and has continued to do so for some time .

A recent chance conversation with a work colleague suggested her husband worked in a machine shop ! With no more delay the knife is now complete and usable ....

I bought the blank on a whim and then realised turning it into a working knife was going to be a chore . It’s finally finished ( minus the handle insert and sheath ) , I might get a kydex sheath made for it and then use it as my camp chopper .

It’s cost me a fraction of a “real” Dartmoor .

Just had a look at the Dartmoor. Not much of a difference and at a fraction of the cost it’s a win win :thumbsup: selling it !??......only kidding :D:rofl:
