Title: Budget Bushcraft Pack Skinners RETURN!
Post by: rainshadow1 on February 05, 2020, 02:22:45 PM
Lots of you guys know I homeschool (5 boys!) Part of our curriculum is doing REAL stuff in the REAL world... This is one of the latest...



My 15yo son, Alex, is bringing the Budget Bushcraft Pack Skinner back to the RainShadow Shop!

Had a TON of people love these little knives! Made with sawmill bandsaw blade steel and micarta grips, sheathed in kydex thermoplastic. Shaving sharp, amazing edge retention and toughness, handy and cheap!

This one is SOLD... He's planning to make more as he has time, so they can be ordered.

Alex is meticulous and detail oriented, he's learned under supervision (and the heat treating will remain under supervision, these are wicked cutters, and they will always be.) His work is as good as mine on these!

This one is now representative, the style and size  is almost always the same. 7 1/2 OAL, give or take.





Let me know if you want to order one. The time frame will vary, but no payments will be accepted until you approve the finished work!


$50 delivered.

You got it... except im going to keep posting, it helps me keep track.

Heís taking to it and doing really great. Super proud of him. Itís been hard to get him into the shop because heís SUCH a perfectionist, he gets frustrated with himself. But he got rolling this time and it stuck, heís excited!

Ended up getting 8 out of him this time here, not bad considering the playing music at church, and snowboarding, and a frenzy workout with the Selah football team, and all the other stuff we cram into life! Proud of this kid, I'll tell you what!

Post by: rainshadow1 on March 12, 2020, 04:13:04 PM
A and E above went kinda that direction, I don't know why he went that way, maybe he likes the russel skinner style??? but it'd be easy to go from there to the pelter. Yeah, I can specify that and see how he does!

No hurry but I would take a 3D and would be really interested in 1-2 of those rounded tips like Machias was asking about.  I make it to Selah about once a week and could save you the shipping time and cost.

These knives are every bit as nice as they look.   The pens are also really cool.

Thanks Dan-o! I texted Alex out in the shop at about 7 that we were starting a movie. He asked, ďWhich movie?Ē And didnít come inside til 8... heís working on another batch!

Very proud of his recent work ethic.

Davidís pens are getting very precise and professional. Really proud of him too!

Itís 100% their work, but I inspect everything and it must pass, or theyíre not allowed to sell it.

Owe a lot to guys like you who support and encourage them. Thanks!

You're on the list, bearhunter99... but it will be awhile... Happy to meet up when they're done! (Hope the cops aren't still out to get us for leaving the house by then!)

I also didn't want the wild colored ones.   

I asked for a couple nice, conservative, professional lens and told him to use his imagination.

Bearhunter, Pens that aren't turned from something really expensive run about $20 each. David Has a facebook pen page he's trying to flesh out a bit, but no website or anything.


Here are Dan-o's pens.  Wenge. And Bison/Ivory.

P.S.   Your boy puts a seriously sharp edge on these knives.   I've sharpened a lot of knives in my day, but I have to admit I don't tend to get as good an edge as some people who know what they are doing.   I'm happy to have super sharp knives......   but just a tad frustrated that a 15 year old can get a knife so much sharper than I can.

He has good equipment, and he's kinda a perfectionist... even though he's a beginner!

This bandsaw steel is pretty awesome too.

Alex comes back home for two weeks tomorrow, he'll get one or two more batches built... I hope.

Running low on phenolic micarta, but we'll look for more, and switch to hardwoods in the meantime. (Different set of skills, mounting wood scales!)

 Again, all knives will be buyer approved before arranging payments, so if you wanted one thing and we show you another, then it isn't a problem. No obligations, we'll make more! This is school!


Thanks Again, to all of you who are supporting Alex in this. He's taking to it, and it's sinking in as a trade skill. Who knows what he'll end up doing, he's a football freak, and a very accomplished musician (fiddle, texas guitar, classical guitar, electric guitar, etc), and he really likes the idea of wildlife biology... But through you guys, he's also seeing the reality of bringing income through sweat and skilled hands. I genuinely appreciate it, guys. Thank You!

This was Alex's first batch with wood. He did great, didn't crack any of them out. Had really good lines and bonds and pin work... Proud Dad moment here, this is kind of a graduation! Hardwoods are tough, but not like Micarta, and he handled them like a pro!

"Wenge" hardwood makes for a really cool look on these budget blades!

I'll be presenting this pic with numbers on the sides to the guys who are next on the list, with the exception of the pen guys, because I don't want the pens waiting around, risking damage or loss... (there are kids in the house!)

My other son, David (just turned 14yo) is making the pens and letter openers. $20 each. These pictured are ordered and pre-sold, but let me know if you want him to make a pen or two for you!

Widgeondeke, you're probably in the next batch, 2-3 weeks. I can make sure if there's Wenge left that we can get them included.

Bearhunter99, I'll have David add it to your beaver skinner order... I'll have Alex practice that round design soon.

JKEEN33, I'll put you on David's list... which is MUCH shorter!

Both of these boys won't be back to my shop for another week and a half, but I'm setting up a satellite shop at their Mom's place so they can do these projects over there too.

Hey Steve, is there certain kinds of woods that work better than others? I have some really nice old growth juniper would that work well? Mule deer skinner made from mule deer habitat?

Hey Karl,  That'd be cool, but I don't recommend Juniper. It's a softwood. Springie, and sappy, so it'd be better than fir or redwood or something, but it'd still wear really fast.

I have some vacuum equipment, but I'm not set up to stabilize right now. 

If you are really getting keen on the idea, now that it's in your head, I could get it stabilized by someone set up to do it. (Rick, bearmanric, is set up. I know a few other guys.) Stabilized it'd be fine. Otherwise, it'll wear down and noticeably deteriorate within a few years of use.

Any of your honey holes have hardwoods? Like Oak, or Maple? Madrona from Alaska?!?!

Thanks KB. I'm really tickled to have him taking to it and getting it done. He's learning free enterprise thanks to you guys!

That steel is awesome, and he's heat treating and handling it really well. Should be a great little worker for you.

@bearhunter99 , did you get my PM? Need to talk about breaking up your order.
@rainshadow1
I didnít see a PM?  Maybe try again?  Iíll check and see if inbox is full.  Never mind. It just came up.

I have some Madrone limbs but they arenít from AK?  Would they work maybe?

This batch took awhile, but I'm really happy about it, because Alex did work at both shops on these! These were worked on in both sides of the State! My house and his Mom's house. (We're setting himself and his brother up to do knives and pens/letter openers/tops etc. over there too.)  So, hopefully no more down time!

I'll be contacting the next ten knife orders to see if they want to choose from this pic... This batch is also Wenge.

You'll be contacted in order.

Curtis, I dont give free passes to kids just because they are kids....   some leeway sure, but no free passes. 

I got 3 of the knives and I dont remember how many pens.   
You will be impressed with the workmanship.  Not impressed that a young person did it.    Just impressed. 

There was no looking at the knives/pens and saying to myself....  well, you helped some young guys.   
I unwrapped them and just sort of wished my craftsmanship was up to theirs. 

Buy with confidence.

Pens/Letter Openers is pretty short, but David is also rebuilding a car and teaching guitar lessons (along with football, playing on two worship teams, skiing, etc!) So likely 2-4 weeks because of distractions.

Ok Guys, To my knowledge, the list has been played out! All have been contacted. (If somehow I missed you, please let me know asap!)

From now on I will try to keep Alex going on knives as he has time, and I will get him to profile out different styles. I will also keep David going on Pens, letter openers, and etc.

We'll still accept orders, I may even start forwarding your contacts to them directly and begin teaching them to do customer contacts as well.

When we don't have orders going, we will post them up for open sale, and they will go first come first served. So please watch for this thread to pop up occasionally!





I have to thank you all again for supporting and encouraging both Alex and David on this! My homeschooling efforts are being rewarded with brain wrinkles that seem to be set in, and this one is due to you guys! I recognize that completely, and thank you all sincerely. This is wonderful stuff, in the long run, when they look back on their education with me, they'll know that you guys have been a very important part of their early years. THANK YOU!

Steve

Batch of Buckeye Burl Budget Bushcraft Skinners By RainShadow2 (Alex) who subcontracted RainShadow3 (David) to do a few steps for him.

Thanks to Big Rick from RR Calls for the nice burl wood!

This whole batch is for one customer, they are already pending sale.

The ďlistĒ has been exhausted... if youíd like to order a budget bushcraft knife, please send me a message with an email address. I will forward them to Alex, and he can begin the ďcustomer contactĒ portion of his training... and take Ďone offí custom orders directly from you! (I will supervise, and make sure he takes good notes and collects contact information.)

Thanks for the help you all have been raising my boys!

Steve,

Very pleasant surprise in my mail box today.

I got my 2nd order of knives and pens.   

The knives look great - every bit as nice as the first set.

The pens, if anything, are even nicer than the 1st set of pens.   It's a bit subjective, but I really love the new set of pens.    5 different pens , all very unique and reallllllllllllllllllllly nice.   Awesome materials and craftsmanship.

Thank your sons for me, and thank you for raising craftsmen of character!

All the best,
Dan

Ok, here he goes, the post I'm making...

"RainShadow2 (16yo son, Alex) made these two recently. Custom orders that he handled himself, start to finish.

Alex is continuing the ďBudget Bushcraft Pack SkinnersĒ for the RainShadow Game Calls & Custom Knives Shop!
Sawmill bandsaw blade steel, amazing performance and unbelievable toughness!

Message me and I can connect you with a budding entrepreneur who has JUST taken flight!"

Customer for this whole batch has gone silent without payment...

Time has passed with regular attempts to contact, and these have been ignored.

These knives are up for open sale, please let me know if you'd like one....


Thanks!

I'll take the bottom right one. Same price as last year? It's going to be for my person on the HW Gift Exchange.

Thanks wadu1, but...

Buyer (suddenly) reappeared, said family emergency and the check has been mailed... I'll give him a little more time...

Alex is making them one-off now, let me know if you want to get in contact...

Buyer came through for the batch of 10, so they're gone.

If you'd like to get in touch with the Budget Knife Maker, or the Pen/Letter Opener maker, send me a text number or email address, and I'll get them in touch with you. Thanks!
