    This video has been in the making for over a year! Over the last 4 years I have been working continuously to improve my process for making the Resolute MkIII and this video documents what it has evolved into!

    First the handle material (G10) is prepared, then the blades and handles are CNC machined, then the blade is hand-finished, heat-treated and DLC coated, then the blade and handles are carefully married together. After the knife is completed the kydex sheath is made using a combination of CNC machining and hand work.

    This process has taken over 4 years to develop and has required thousands of hours of experimentation and design work, I believe it makes the most of modern CNC machining and old-school hand finishing! Nevertheless I continue to evolve this process and improve my knives every day!

    Hope you guys enjoy the video! If you have any questions let me know in the comments!

    I’m puzzled how this video has been unliked! The only thing that could have made it better is if the narrator from How It’s Made did the voice over. Awesome video, keep them coming.

    I'm not a fan of that drop-point, no-grind-line blade shape (in terms of appearance, that is), though it seems to be a trendy shape these days. That shape doesn't look anywhere near as cool as something like the blade of Buck 119 Special ( which is a particularly good looking clip point). It looks like a short and fat version of a chef's knife blade. It would look better if it didn't just have a simple wedge-shaped cross-section. The lack of a grind line is the main reason that it looks like a chef's knife blade, though I guess it makes the hand sanding part a lot easier.

    Why isn't this video/ channel monetized and running ads? I would gladly watch all the ads on your videos and not skip them to put money on your pocket. You are very talented and this is a great channel!!! You should get something in return
