Mine is the one on the top left, patterned after a Kestrel Caper with some changes. Made thin and hard. Got a finished picture from Tim, great looking knife. Anxious to receive it.

My new Olt just now arrived. And it is gorgeous! Fills the hand with no hotspots, balances well, perfect blade geometry, screaming sharp. It is just excellent in every regard. I couldn't be happier. It is going to be hard waiting until Fall to dress out a critter with it. Thanks Tim!

That is a beauty!


My .25-06 shoots 1/4" all day long and I don't even have to do my part...

Beauty! My blade is the one in the top right in the picture. Caribou antler bolsters with curly maple handles. Can't wait to see it!

The last 4 knives in the group are in the stage of putting handles on them.
Those with sheaths will take a bit longer to be ready to ship (couple weeks yet).

Three of the last 4 have more complicated multi material scales.
That adds some time to get fit and finish to look right. The fourth is a
stick tang assembly which is a little different assembly than flat scales.

There not far away.

Thanks
Tim

As these knives out of CPM M4 get to you and in use, how about starting a new thread
on how this steel performs, how you use it, how you resharpen the blade, etc.

Being new to me, I do not have much experience with it. It does seem to hold and edge well
for the little use I have experienced with it. It does seem to give a toothier edge than other steels
I have used (440C, 154CM, A2, S30V, CPM 154, 52100)
Maybe I will try to take one down a bit further to a finer edge than I normally do.
None of the other steels I have used have tungsten init. M4 has 5.5%

What ya think????

Thanks
Tim

Getting some more requests for CPM M4 knives.
Probably start on a batch in fall/winter time.

IF any interest see the patterns shown back on page 1 of this thread.
A couple special pattern requests may be considered also.

PM me for interests.

Thanks
Tim

Tim, per our phone conversation, please put me on the list for a 5" Skinner (with NS bolster) with the Black Buffalo horns scales to match my Loveless DP you made several years ago!!!

Can't think of a better combo to leave my son someday...…

I was under the impression that this was all done months ago. Are there still blanks left to order something?

Four posts up Tim said he is getting requests and is looking to make some more blades out of the M4. Get in an order if you want a really nice piece of steel. I have the one marked BNT in the patterns on page one of this thread. and I really like it a lot.

This will be the THIRD go round of taking and filling orders with CPM M4

I do have some sheet left for special patterns.

I have some unground blanks left yet to be processed into blades and heat treated.
They are of the patterns shown on page 1.

I have a few extra processed and heat treated blades left from the batch I made while filling the second round orders.
They are of the patterns shown on page 1.

Decided to go with a 5" skinner this time around. Loving my scout from the last run, dang thing holds an edge. Used it in household duties but haven't put it to real duty yet. Still just as sharp as when it was shipped.

Shinbone, I asked Tim to make me one of his Loveless style drop points several years ago, with Black Buffalo scales and I have carried that knife on every hunt since. You will love it! Just a great all around and classic style.

Beautiful blade, congratulations!

That pattern in the fabric makes that smooth contoured handle look like not finished, but it is.

So I guess I have all interested parties for this 3rd build in the queue.

I will be ordering some more steel this week. From there it will be into the winter time to finish.

I will start a new thread for that build when I have blanks cut and shaped.

Thanks
Tim
