    I picked up one of your paring knives off the exchange. I like it, it's a great little utility knife. I wish you had been rounding the spine back whenever you made it. I have some Fiddleback Forge knives and they all have a rounded spine. I too can attest to the prolonged comfort factor of the rounded spine. If you're not already doing it to all your paring knives, do it! I think someday I'd be willing to give a folder a try too. It's just nicer to work with in the long run.

    It was Ricky Bob's Birthday yesterday.

    I meant to get these pix up yesterday. However, being as Rick turned 89 years old yesterday, he probably understands about it taking longer to get anything up at his advanced age and condition.

    Thankfully I'm relatively spry at almost 65.

    Anywho, for an old fart, he sure does some mighty straight grinds.

    So with that in mind here's a belated birtday shout out to Ricky Bob Menefee.

    Oh yeah RBM, it's a scientifically proven fact that folks that have the most birthdays, live the longest.

    Live long and prosper my friend.

    Best,


    GWB

    Some Menefee Stag...............

    I've managed to sneak up on four of Ricks stag handled knives.

    But this latest one is especially sweet!

    I think it's the perfection of the grind lines that intrigue me.

    I hunted on my birthday. Great day was had. I forecast the weekend will bring a bent rod. Last Sunday 42lb blue came over the side along with maybe 20 quarts. Facebook I post pictures. Last time we got spanked. Grin...

    Mike I got a few #1 Randall's in the works. Have not played with guards in a long time. Just because I don't don't mean I can't. Looking forward to finishing a few

    You need more aluminum for the butt caps too. I do like that look!

    You learned well Ricky. Besides that maple T Bose Hunter I have from you, I picked up a couple of paring knives, one made by Rocky and one made by you that Vince scaled in Olive Wood. Those two little suckers are awesome in the kitchen!!

    Thanks
    It's interesting fact with slip/joint making. You work hard and it's seems you go into a standstill. Then all it once it started coming together. I think it took 10 years to learn proper mechanic's and how to make a spring. Since the first of the year things have changed more than the previous 5 years. Fixed blades to me is mindless work. Ive done mult thousand and in a environment which useing one tells the tale very quickly.

    I know you all think I'm biased a bit,when talking Menefee knives,rightfully so I guess. But I do believe Rick has built me one of the nicest custom slipjoints I've had in my life so far. Thank You Rick :thumbup:[​IMG]
