Hey Everyone!! Its that time! The California Custom Knife Show is upon us! I was able to work on 3 really cool and special Customs for the show and I am SUPER excited to show them to you! The 3 knives that I will show you are a bit of a departure from the customs that I have made in the past year or so. This is the first one that I want to introduce! It came right out of the Argonne forest where it was used during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of the Great War. It is showing a bit of "battle wear" but I assure you that it is more than ready to continue its patriotic duty!
Building this knife was a dream! I had in mind to make a Battle Field Pickup in a Custom and then the ideas just started flowing...The patriotic "Star and Bar" really set off the lockside and then I carried it through to the full bronze backspacer. The "bullet holes" I carved into the g-10 to make it look like the knife actually took a burst from a Maxim M08.
The build of the knife is also very unique...The blade is full thickness of a regular XM18 but the lockside and handle is the thickness of the XM18 Skinny....so a real unique build! Also the grind is unique in the the Harpoon Spanto is hollow ground in both the belly of the blade as well as the tip...
Had a lot of fun creating this knife and honestly it is going to be hard to see it go! When you are holding this knife you can almost hear those shells coming through the trees...………….. This will be a auction piece at the show,the other two will be lottery knives via a beep beep style lottery..... Thanks so much everyone!! Rick Hinderer
