    Howdy folks!
    It's that time of year again, where I post pictures of all the knives I made in the previous year. Well, except for a few that I didn't take pictures of. Many of these have not been seen here before.

    In 2016, I invested a lot of money in camera gear (not that that was necessary, but it's fun) and in the latter part of the year, I started acquiring more backgrounds to use in my pictures. I also invested a lot of time in learning how to take and edit better pictures (not as much fun, but definitely necessary). I still have a lot to learn (and gear to acquire. ha!), but hopefully y'all can see some progress being made.

    As always, thanks for looking, and your comments and critiques are welcome.

    Without further ado, and in no particular order, my 2016 output:

    Phillip, some very nice pieces there. I particularly like the Kukuri in post #6 and the Loveless Dixon fighter post #1. My favourite is The Fighter/ Bowie in post #2

    Also, what is the wood for this handle? It's very interesting.

    Funny. I was watching when you posted. Had not refreshed for a while, and I was going to say I know for a fact you made more than you had shown, because I agonize over every one you post up for sale......Watching until they sell. Wishing I was in a position to snap them all up!
