Absolutely beautiful knives! You have some incredible talent there!
And your sense of humor is off the charts. Laughed so hard at your response I had tears in my eyes!
Glad to see you on the forum!

Tagging,  knew you were making knives did not know how good they were looking!

Why are US churches sending missionaries to foreign countries?  Is it because we think we don't need them or because we think they might actually listen and change.

Are you using a laser to engrave your logo onto the blade?

Hey Rob G! Thank you and all, it is fun.

I electro chemically etch my mark using an electricity source that runs through a pad with electrolyte solution in it through a stencil set on the blade. A laser would be nice so that you could do one off designs, but they are really expensive.

A couple MC's in 440c and Micarta. 440c gets a bad rap because of chinese junk knives mislabeled as 440c, but it actually is a good steel. These are the first MC's I've made with 440c and Micarta and handrubbed. Both have leather crossdraw sheaths and I can make Kydex sheaths if you want. $160 each. I carry an older version of this pattern everyday and have used it for everything you need a knife for such as deer, rabbit, squirrel, boxes, shop work, etc.

First frame handled bowie. Was a lot of work, but it turned out well and I learned a lot.

The honest ones just said "440 Stainless" because the 440A was the problem. Great stainless, but horrible blade steel. 440C is great blade steel!

love the drop point. That is my favorite field knife.  $160 is a great price for a custom knife.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
