Introducing the Taylor MBS (Mini Broad Sword)!

When my niece, a Houston police officer asked me to make her a knife, the Taylor MBS was the result.  Taylor is my niece’s name and the MBS moniker came from my brother’s initial reaction to the knife.  He said that it looks like a little broad sword.  Hence the name became Taylor MBS (Mini Broad Sword).  This is the first knife that I have officially named.  The blade steel is CPM 154 cm.  It is a stainless steel with excellent edge holding ability.  The handle is afzelia xylay burl with water buffalo horn and leather spacers.  The blade was professionally heat treated by Texas Knife Maker’s Supply, including subzero deep cryogenic tempering.  Beautiful custom knife and custom sheath, both made by Vance Hinds.  The blade is a double tanto with a chisel grind, polished to a mirror finish. The guard and pommel are double aught “00” iron, heat blued.  Texas residents must pay 8.25% sales tax.  Shipping and handling is $6.00 to the U.S. International shipping rates will be determined up purchase.

SOLD  ($450.00 for a similar knife to be made)

I am an Assistant County and District Attorney at the Ellis County District Attorney's Office. On November 20, 2017, Comedian Bert Kreischer inspired me to start a weight loss journey. I started this journey at 475 pounds. Through Bert's support, Professional Wrestling Hall of Famer and Fitness Legend, Diamond Dallas Page reached out to me and changed my life. DDP Yoga and Nutrition under Dallas' guidance keeps the weight falling off of me and increases the quality of my daily life, every day. I started this podcast and blog to personally track my journey but to also interview other extra usual individuals. Those that inspire, teach, help, create, invent, discover, or are simply interesting. A lawyer for 24 years, I see negativity and conflict daily. I want to be part of something positive and inspiring. This is my outlet, my journey, my mid-life crisis, my future. If you know someone inspiring to you, let me know. I will interview this person, maybe he or she will inspire us all. Thanks. Vance
