    lol! Right? The only design that I have given a sort of ‘ownership’ is the tactical skinner I have done for @Toyotamafia and that’s because he bought 7 of them.

    It's an awesome knife. I'd recommend it to anyone. I hope you sell a bunch. You nailed the handle shape.
    It's in use as we speak.

    Some knives look good. Some knives feel just right in the hand. Some knives perform well. Not all knives achieve all 3.
    That’s my goal. I spend a tremendous amount of time looking at knives and pictures of knives and holding knives. I’m continually amazed at the number of impractical and obviously uncomfortable knives being sold.

    Wow…that looks incredible! I was showing my son some of your pieces and he loved them. We are going to find a blacksmith class to do together. He is 10

    I’m going with bare, all the way. And if she’s into stropping, I’m game for that too!

    Keep us posted on your blacksmithing adventures. I’m excited for you and your son. 10 is an awesome age! Are you employed in the trades and already have a decent shop?

    Last summer, my youngest son spent his vacation here with us. While he was here he made his own Damascus knife. We worked together for about a week. I had him ‘shadow’ me through the process each step of the way as I did a similar knife in front of him. Some of the crucial steps, like the heat treating and etching, I did. C33ED2E2-1B42-4D82-86A7-0BB00FB6F414.jpgheres the knife he made..

    No…I’m a banker by trade :rofl: I have done a few things with blacksmiths over the years through my involvement with Boy Scouts. One of our leaders was a Horseshoer/Blacksmith and let a couple of us goof around with his forge. I really had a lot of fun.

    A friend visiting from AZ brought me some cholla skeleton. I’ve got some pieces cut, cleaned, dyed, stabilized and cast in epoxy. Pretty excited about the knives they will be going onto!5C9B4C98-1902-47E3-B196-4F35BB93F1E2.jpg31A9FBC7-921F-41B5-8A00-E768B5AFAFCA.jpgFCD9DC7A-1F63-48C8-BCAC-3E3EC371A724.jpg
