    That's a beautiful tool, that has emerged from the shrapnel like a Phoenix!
    Let me again applaud you, Ken, for making tool knives that appear less "sexy" to some, but more so to me!
    Another challenge, and well met!!

    I was hoping you would have forgotten about it! LOL JK.
    I broke the one spring in my 3 pt setup trying to adjust the tension, went a wee bit overboard!

    Having wanting a Texas Jack from Ken for a while (and always changing my mind at the last minute) I was surprised when this Texas Jack came up for sale on the forums last week, and to see it still available when I got home from work, I had to assume it was meant for me. Well it arrived today, and I'm blown away. The size is perfect-3 3/4", the steel is what I would have requested-D2, and the bone color is fantastic-Ken Really did a great job with this one, I'll use the picture he had taken, as I haven't had time to take any myself. BTW, this is going right in my pocket-Enjoy:

  6. Gorgeous knife, Tony! ...can't wait for my next one from Ken!

    Great knife Tony. Congratulations.

    Ken I will be glad to put a thread together, just say the word. I think I am almost as excited over that project as the owner to be is.

    As some of you may know, a while back I did a quick poll concerning shipping out my knives in the cheap zippered cases. Thanks everyone for giving their ideas and opinions.
    I have made some progress. I wanted to keep things "in house" so I purchased a heavy duty sewing machine and have been teaching myself how to sew.

    Here are a few pictures of a simple soft case with Velcro closure. I will be experimenting with different type outer materials and things.(please note, these case are not for sale)

    Thanks Elliott,

    Its a start. This is the first one that I made, out of 10 or so, I would even think about sending out with a knife!

    I will say that it seems like a lot of work, Ken, and though I really appreciate where you're coming from in doing this I hope it won't take away too much time from what we all admire you for most.
    (Especially if it ever becomes too much of a chore.)

    Nobody here, I trust, will ever be disappointed with your going back to a simple zipper case or pouch without all the extra time, effort and expense on your part. Well, I guess I really shouldn't be speaking for anyone else. I certainly won't be. Heck, I was happy enough with the shop towels!

    I do enjoy this aspect and while not taking that much time from the shop Nettie has expressed an interest in taking over the case making operation. I like to think my role in this is R&D

    Ken,

    Respectfully, if you are going to offer cases on your knives I think it would be classy to set up a custom embroidery of your makers stamp for the outside fabric cover.
