    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!
