    Ban, you ever consider making a dagger? I definitely pick one up from you if you did. I bet you'd make a nice one with proper geometry that would actually cut....

    Nope. Not yet. Daggers would be fun to make. I may try one soon.

    Ban,
    What would be a good belt grinder to purchase for a beginner? And how much $ might one invest in order to have an effective set up?

    Depends on what you want to do with it. Sharpen knives or make knives? I started off with a Grizzly grinder/buffer back in 1998 and still use it today.

    Would you be open to a project that might not be your usual style?

    What sort of project are we talking about? I am pretty curious and adventurous by nature and may consider it if it peaks my interest.

    Speaking of projects, I have a concept I've been toying with for a while: SAK blade replacements. If I could take apart my alox Farmer, put in a Ban Tang M4 blade of identical specs...man that would make a good all around tool incredibly more useful.

    Might be crazy or not worth it, but I can't quite get it out of my head...

    I never tried taking apart those alox folders. I actually like those things quite a bit. A premium steel main blade on one of those super handy knives would be really sick! M4 or 3V would be pretty darn ideal for me. I wouldn't mind diving into fun projects like that in the future if and when I have the time. As it is, I already have a pretty darn busy life.

    Yeah, they would be sick! Think of how many people would buy SAKs that'd been modified to have blades in premium steels.

    Anyway, yeah, that's a lil fun thing for down the road. I just wanted to stake my claim as the first (as far as I know) with the idea

    I was wondering what kind of delays you have right now when ordering a knife from you =)

    At the current rate I am going right now it is at least a few months. It just all depends on how busy I get with my regular day job.

    Ti frame lock with a sleek looking, stupid sharp, frosty blade! I'm not going to think about this too much or I'll just torture myself.
