One final video of the last Xerx I made. This one was done with a compound ground 3/16" blade and linerless Blackwood carbon fiber from @aj_composites. It came back for a Timascus clip and is headed back out tomorrow.

Potential auction knife. I'm definitely liking the size. It will more of less be a one off. I just shape the material until I am satisfied. If everything works out, it should make a great edc. If you never see an auction post, something went horribly wrong and I threw it in the creek 😀 #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

Started assembling this one today. 3V blade, Titanium liners, unidirectional carbon fiber. Still a lot to do, but it's s start. #knifestagram #handmade #edc #knifepics #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #knifeporn #igmilitia #knifemaking #knifemaker #knifelife #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #ticonnector #trugrit @ishambladeworks

Let me take a little time to update everyone on what’s upcoming. First, thanks everyone for the continued support. Many more giveaways will be coming along with new additions to the @thetravelingknife. I currently have 8 more 0055 clips to finish, so if you are still waiting, I have not forgotten. This week was a bust as my mill went down and I have been waiting on a part. I also will be making 5 more Timascus clips for the War Admiral. So if anyone is interested, shoot me a DM. To the few of you waiting on the modified 711s, I’ll be starting on them in the next week or so. I have 4 blades heat treated for custom Xerx, but they are likely 6-8 weeks out from beginning to come together. I am also planning on doing 3-5 of my edc razor in the coming months. Lastly, I’m in the process of moving my design into CAD for my first production knife. Im extremely excited for this and will definitely keep everyone updated. Again, thank you all for the support. Definitely DM me if you need anything. 👊

First one of this design is finished and ready to ship out tomorrow. I'm extremely happy with the outcome. #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

The potential auction knife continues to progress. I installed the detent, did some milling, and set the lock. Hopefully later this week it will be ready to go. #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

Another WIP. This is one of four hopefully headed to heat treat soon. Liner lock with cts204p blade. It will have timascus bolsters and carbon fiber scales. #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

Birthday dinner carry!!! This one is pretty much a safe queen and I only take it out to play with and carry on special occasions! Absolutely gorgeous work by my good friend @apurvisblades! Such beautiful lines, carbon fiber, and that timascus is breathtaking!😍🔥👌🏼🔪 #knifestagram #everydaycarry #knifeporn #knifenut #knifepics #knife #knifefanatics #knifegasm #knifeaddict #knifecollector #knifecollection #edc #edcgear #knifeobsession #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #xerx #10 #carbonfiber #orangepeel #timascus #birthday #happybirthdaytome

Absolutely awestruck. What a #mailcall to end the day! @apurvisblades Xerx 3.5in with a carbon fiber scale, orange peeled Ti, a stonewashed, beautifully ground blade, and to top it all off, a gorgeous and stunning timascus pocket clip tying it all together. I'm blown away by the precision and craftsmanship, and the action is perfect. This one is a keeper! 😍🔥🔪👌🏼 #knifestagram #everydaycarry #knifeporn #knifenut #knifepics #knife #knifefanatics #knifegasm #knifeaddict #knifecollector #knifecollection #edc #edcgear #knifeobsession #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #xerx #10 #carbonfiber #orangepeel #timascus

Today I was able to get 6 of 7 knives basically ready for heat treat. The two razors are spoken for. Three of the Xerx are still available to reserve. There are two that are 3/16" CPM154 and one that is .156 CTS204P. Anything that isn't reserved will be finished the way I want and then placed up for sale. Thanks!

This upgrade/ rebuild is coming along nicely. This is the first time I have done polished titanium with a stonewash. Timascus clip and backspacer. Blade refinish. I also colored the hardware. @windsor1621

I find it really cool when a knife comes back for some upgrades to be able to implement new finishing techniques that I have learned since it was built.
This is Xerx number 3. Today I chamfered some holes, reshaped the handle, and contoured them again. It will also be getting a blade refinish, Timascus clip, and Timascus backspacer. I'm excited to see this one head home post upgrades! @windsor1621

Here it is. Finished for the 10th time. Prototype Persian and knife #6. Titanium scales, cts-xhp blade, GTC bearings, Timascus clip, titanium pivot, titanium collars.
I ended up changing the blade up a little. I also put it back on the belt to even the grinds up a bit and left it at a 220 grit stain. Rock solid lock up around 35 percent.
Since this is the prototype and has been through so many changes, I'm thinking of running a silent auction on it for 24 hours. It's had a ton of love and work in this one. Not perfect, but I doubt I'll ever get even near perfect.

This is the 6th folder I completed last year and the 1st of my Persian runs. It has been hanging out with my good buddy @grindingknives and just recently returned home. This particular knife has been through multiple changes to reach it current state. Even though my work has evolved, I still love looking at where it started. More than likely though, it will just sit in my safe. So after I blast/ tumble the scales tomorrow, and touch up the edge, I'll probably offer it up for sale. It could also use some cleaning and oil 😀. I want it to have a good home. Someone who will use it and enjoy it for what it is.

Today I brought it all together and contoured the scales. I did a quick coloring on the Timascus to see how it all looks. It will be much more even after I polish it. Theoretically 😂

Lucky enough to finally own this fine dime!
-
It's a custom built knife by @apurvisblades Modified Tanto Xerx with a slight recurve. Hollow primary with flat ground tip. Cts-xhp .125" blade heat treated to 61rc and tested. Titanium frame lock with titanium show side liner and carbon fiber scale. 7" OAL with 3" cutting edge. GTC bearings, ceramic detent, and titanium pivot and collars. All the hardware was heat colored. Lock face is carbidized and lock up is rock solid at 40% ish. Titanium was slightly orange peeled and blasted. Carbon fiber was lightly blasted to add texture. The blade was blasted and stonewashed. Since I won, I chose to go with the carbon fiber clip to finalize the knife.

If this knife catches your eyes, I'd highly recommend giving my buddy Adam @apurvisblades a follow to see what future projects he has coming shortly for the public! I've been following him for months now and decided this was the knife I had to own!

He's very talented in this field of work and has progressed to an extremely high caliber of quality and design with every knife he produces. #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #knife #igknives #usnstagram #ctsxhp #carbonfiber #carbonclip #knives #knivesofinstagram #knivesdaily #edc #edcknife #titanium #titaniumknife #knifemaking #customknives #customknife #customknifemaker

I really hate to see this one go but it is finished and ready to head to the auction winner. I really am enjoying this shape and size. Like I said, I will probably do a run of five of these after I finish what I have on the bench. Thanks so much for everyone's support! #actionisamust #handmade #edc #apurvisbladesxerx #apurvisblades #bestknivesofig #knifesale #knifeporn #knifemaking #knifemaker #knifepics #knifelife #knifestagram #knife #blades #blade #instaknife #igmilitia #usn #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #titanium #ctsxhp #ticonnector #trugrit

Down to just over two hours for this first auction. It officially ends tonight at 8 PM EST.

This one will be finished up tomorrow and ready to head to heat treat. Two are on the way back, and four more are headed to @trugritinc.

Number 7 found its way back to me for some added jimping. I forgot how much I enjoyed this knife! The user has really carried and used this piece. That is awesome! #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

I did a bit more work on this one. So far, it is probably one of my favorites as far as overall aesthetics. I've got to order something to finish this one up. Assuming I'm happy with the end result, it will definitely be an auction piece. If not, I'll make another from scratch and still have a low starting price auction. Currently, I have six knives I'm finishing. I'm thinking about doing a run of 5 of these after that. This one ended up with an OAL right at 7". If anyone would be interested in one of the 5 either comment or shoot me a DM. I'll post more specific information soon. As always, thanks so much for the support! #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

I had the 1/8" thick cts-xhp that I scraped from the copper bolstered build. This blade was already heat treated and tested to 61rc. So I decided to reshape it install it in a new handle. This appears to be the smallest knife I have made to date. It will be around a 3" blade and probably 7.25" OAL. I have not done an auction yet, so I'm a week or two when it's done I'll more than likely give it a shot. I expect to open the auction fairly low, so stay tuned if interested. #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

Another WIP. This is one of four hopefully headed to heat treat soon. Liner lock with cts204p blade. It will have timascus bolsters and carbon fiber scales. #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust

So here is the copper bolstered Xerx with the new 3/16" blade. I cannot wait to see this one come together after heat treat! #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust #copperknife

I ended up with a badly inflamed left elbow. Due to that, my progress has slowed considerably as it heals. Luckily, with some help at home, I'm able to still progress some. This is the new blade I decided to put into this knife. It is not completely where I want it yet, but it's getting there. This is 3/16" cpm154. I also added a bit more belly. I decided the scales needed a bit more so the copper got a titanium collar and the titanium a copper collar. #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust #copperknife

So, this build is on hold for a bit. I decided that the thin blade stock just didn't work with the overall tank feel of the knife. So I will be doing another blade. The difference is, the last was .130", and the next will be .187" 😀. I should have the steel in the middle of next week. So hopefully in about a month it will be nearing completion again in a configuration that I prefer much more. I hate to have to do that, but I am my own worst critic. I refuse to offer something for sale that I myself would not be 💯 percent satisfied with. #knifepics #igmilitia #knifemods #customknife #customknives #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #blade #knifeporn #knifemaker #knifelife #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #edc #handmade #actionisamust #copperknife

I woke up feeling creative I guess. Handle scale from a large Xerx that will be up for sale in a week or so. #knife #knifepics #knifelife #knifeporn #knifemaking #knifemaker #knifestagram #igmilitia #blade #blades #handmade #customknife #customknives #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx

I took this picture with my most recent build the other day before it shipped. Here you can see the size comparison with my @weknives 617. This Xerx was around a 3.3" blade. The more knives I make the more I find myself liking smaller blades. #knife #knifepics #knifelife #knifeporn #knifemaking #knifemaker #knifestagram #igmilitia #blade #blades #handmade #customknife #customknives #weknives #weknife617 #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx

This one is getting there but not quite there yet. I still need to tumble this blade and polish the flats. This was my first attempt at a slicer style hollow grind. While the outcome is nice, it turned into more of my typical Persian style than a tanto. I may actually prefer this those. Tomorrow much more will happen. Hopefully I can wrap this one up. #knifestagram #handmade #edc #knifepics #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #knifeporn #igmilitia #knifemaking #knifemaker #knifelife #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #ticonnector #trugrit @ishambladeworks

Lock set and additional contouring done. Finger relief for lock enlarged and grooves added. This one has fought me the whole way but is coming together nicely. #knifestagram #handmade #edc #knifepics #apurvisblades #apurvisbladesxerx #knifeporn #igmilitia #knifemaking #knifemaker #knifelife #usnstagram #usualsuspectnetwork #ticonnector #trugrit @ishambladeworks
