A Prosecutor’s Knife!

A knife of many firsts, this is the direction I hope to take my craft.  The wife of one of the prosecutors in my office asked me to make a knife for her husband.  Although many months late, I finally finished the knife.  I took inspiration from the great knifemakers: Wayne Morgan, Turtle Knives, and Tomas Rucker.  These are three of my favorite makers.  The blade is 52100 ball bearing steel, hand forged and acid etched.  The acid etch will inhibit rusting.  The guard is “00” wrought iron.  The wrought iron did not etch like I was expecting.  The hidden tang handle is made of stabilized maple burl, black spacer material, desert ironwood, water buffalo horn, and a `leather spacer.  The hand made sheath was made and tooled by my wife, Mary Hinds.   The overriding theme of the knife substantiates my business logo: Hand Made for Hard Use!  I hope Jake gets many years of hard use with this knife.  Vance Hinds


About www.extrausual.com

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
