    Lapco lapco.co.nz problem is they sell it in large pieces, so if you only want a small amount it’s not worth it, if you can find a friendly saddler you might be able to buy some, whatever you do only get veg tanned stuff as chrome tanned will fall apart.

    @viper, I like the knife photos, but your herb garden (used as the regular backdrop) is almost as impressive!

    @Puffin , HaHa , my wife will be stoked to hear you say that, she's a nurse on the front line with this virus so that will make her day and will tell her once she gets back from her shift tonight.
    It's also a good reminder for me to mix my back drops up more.

    I think that might be A2 steel. Less chippy than D2.

    SOG Terminus XR in S35VN. Was sharp out of the box then wicked sharp after using the ultra fine stones added to my sharpmaker. The XR is a much less slick axiom lock found on Benchmade folders.

    Tried to find anything on google but no success.
