    Looking for ideas for the April Special. Maybe the Bird & Trout?
    Any ideas are appreciated.

    rather than a specific pattern, how about offering a 10% shop credit towards your next order?
    so if they order a $150 knife for April delivery, their next order will have a $15 credit.
    if they order $1000 worth of cutlery for April, they get a $100 credit...... :eek:

    Stretched Potawatomi or stretched Blue Gill. Or I saw a Worker B&T.

    I need to figure out a way to make the holes perfect, can’t afford to be throwing steel away. I’ll get it figured out.

    it does have the advantage of encouraging followup sales & getting folks to plan their next purchase......

    I don’t know if it’s a case of it no longer being offered, or that I really like the one just raffled off, but my interest in a camp knife is piqued.

    If there was interest, I could probably be convinced to make them.
    I like the one that I raffled better than the original one. It reminds me of a Bowie.

    I just reread your post about them being timely and costly to make, so maybe they don’t make much sense as a special. That said, if there is enough interest, I’m interested.
    Seems like some iteration of a B&T might be popular.

    If there is interest in a knife like that raffle knife, I would possibly offer it. Anyone interested, at around $285 plus $10 shipping? Regular price is $300 plus shipping.

    I am persistent if not annoying, I got to vote for the worker B&T with a stretched handle and slight downward curve at the end and a drop point blade of 2.75 to 3.25 inches.

    That's the specs on my "waterfowl" worker. I would be in for another in 3/32" O1 John with a slimmer handle than my current. But I will be in for that at some point this year regardless

    Looks like a B&T / Worker might be a good candidate.

    3/32 01 steel of course, I would not change the handle too much, like the one in the picture, more to hold on to. I like a handle with a 4 finger grip or long enough where you can maneuver the blade.

    If you go with the stretched B&T, would it be available in either flat or scandi?
