    Hello everyone I just wanted to say how humbled and honored I am to have this forum here, I feel awkward advertising it so I've only told one person thus far (jv3)and that's because I past his number in my phone and just had to share in the excitement so I texted him, thanks for breaking the ice Jay!! Maybe I will get over this weird 'self promoting feeling' and spread the word, but for now I just cant shake it.. odd...

    I'm currently working on a batch of knives and hopeful to have them up for sale next week as I'm still waiting on my new makers mark (almost 6 weeks, long aggravating story). That's 'if' I get my stencil before I leave again on the 31st, I will have my phone to get online and stay in contact for the 7-10 days I'm gone.. And I should have no problem shipping them if I bring them with...

    I can't wait to release the new batch, I've crossed a lot of bumps in the road of life and jumped many hurdles the last few months but everything is moving in the right direction and the knives are showing it !!! I've pretty much dropped 2 of the designs I've done before (at least for now) and I've changed one of the names, I will be adding some more designs and tweeking a few existing ones...

    I appreciate everyone who stops by and I encourage you to post anything you'd like..

    take care,

    was stoked to see your new sub-forum.
    offer stands if you ever need help manning a table at a gun or knife show - and a place to stay if it's close enough to my home. :)
    best of luck man!
    (and yes, i'm still using that piece of reground bandsaw blade to cut leather)

    Thanks, i appreciate it.
    I may have to take you up on that, and it funny how well those little experimental blades have held up for folks.

    Right now im at the lake for 10 days, when i return im going to finish organizing the shop and start at it hardcore. I should have a couple knives up for sale as soon as i get back.
    Thanks man i appreciate it, im hopeful people will be happy with them

    Glad you're happy with it, you picked up one of the first 17 i ever done, if it ever needs a spa treatment feel free to send it in and ill give it a once over for free!! And remember the knife is guaranteed for life!!
