    That's great! I happen to appreciate the sowbelly pattern as well as Ken's work. :thumbsup: I think he can make anything.

    Ken uses some of the best ebony I've ever seen. Glad to see him back making knives again.

    3.25" Ken squeezed as much blade as he possibly could into that frame. I also love that it can be pinched open. A perfect edc, exactly what I wanted.

    IIRC, he was at the Badger show in March but I haven't heard anything in months, I'm sure Elliott would know

    I'll try to reach out for him, (hopefully today), and will report back at first opportunity.

    Just got off the phone with Ken. He's doing well, and sounds good. He's taken a hiatus from knife making but still has all his equipment and hopefully he'll be back at it in the not too distant future.

    He appreciates everyone's well wishes.

    Nice Erickson, Jack!!
    I took a serious look at that one, but decided I've been spending too much $$ lately.
    Ken's knives are always exquisite!!
