It’s here… The ultimate goal for us is to provide the premier Hand Made American tool with the least amount of waiting time as we can humanly provide. After several years and tens of thousands of reinvested dollars later, we are arriving at this goal. Consider this a test run for future drops from Scorpion 6. We have 4x Bensag 750’s, an LR-1, a Thestral, 3x Pingvin Tools, and a KeyBar with our blade insert. The website has been loaded with the products for preview, and the drop will occur at 1200 MST tomorrow (15 Oct 2022) See you there!
Blade Show West is rapidly approaching, and we are very excited to be exhibiting there this year. BSW was originally in Portland, then moved to L.A., and is now in Salt Lake City, Utah! The Blade Show staff has always taken really good care of us and puts a lot of thought into their locations and exhibitions. I have seen photos of the venue as well as the floor plan and am impressed. For those that have not attended a Blade Show, it is a surreal experience for everyone. It is a great place to meet and socialize with makers,Continue reading “Upcoming Show!”
Nearing the end of summer, I was watching the Terminal List by Jack Carr and saw a scene where the main actor (Chris Pratt) pulls out a tomahawk and disembowels his enemy with it. There is no fixed tool in the world that feels as amazing in the hands as a good tomahawk or axe. This new found inspiration led to me hopping onto my CAD computer and getting to work. I wanted to make something lighter, stronger, sinister looking, and more mission capable than a typical “combat axe”. I designed one with a pick, and one with a hammer.Continue reading “The Renegat (Renegade) Axe”
In the challenging times we are in, and those yet to come, we will be faced with things that force us into making a choice. On/off, yes/no, left/right, etc. I have a request. No matter what you are facing, no matter the challenge- do not settle for less. There have been an abundance of knife makers and others struggling to get materials. Instead of diving in to find it, they take the easier route and order it from China, diminishing the quality of their materials and not informing their customers. This is unacceptable. In a recent study, they found thatContinue reading “Don’t settle for mediocrity”
The B1-Balisong (B1-B) is our first attempt of a Balisong knife. Even though I have very little experience with them, I felt that I would learn and challenge my abilities by making one. Press fit stop pins into hardened stainless steel was my key goal. After making the prototype, I realized that I do in fact enjoy this kind of knife. I moved the prototype around into more experienced hands for feedback and criticism. It went over so well that we decided to bring a few to Blade Show in Atlanta! So now, we are moving forward with a fullContinue reading “B1-B Run is Alive!”
The time after Blade Show is always a wild time. For the entire year, that one event is something that is always being worked on because of how immense it is. After cleaning the shop, replacing all of our machine tooling, restocking every consumable, and cutting the next Blade Show- we are back in business. Unfortunately though, after the show and travel across the country, I came down with an upper respiratory infection which has led to acute pharyngitis. After antibiotics the doctors still think it will be weeks before I feel better. We are still working, still building, stillContinue reading “Sunday Update”
As we have all experienced, social media has been a draining part of our everyday lives since inception. As most things, it is a powerful resource tool when used correctly. Unfortunately, it has become a cesspool of drama, politics, control and endless advertising. So, we are launching the S6 Blog. No algorithms, no targeted marketing, no restrictions and no drama. We will be posting photos, updates, how to tutorials and schedules consistently to this page. Turn away from the mindless scrolling, and come here for the positivity, knives and #scorpion6family
