    Nice job on those Daniel. I like the looks of the top one with scales however the one with cord would be great if concealment was an issue.

    Thanks! Yes both have their advantages, I have a hard time deciding which I like the most.

    Much appreciated!

    Does this mean you are on the sheaths for these? ETA of package complete? send money now? what up boss?

    edit: just remembered that your wife will be making the leather streamlined pocket sheaths.. so I suppose a little longer, no worries. I'm all patience. HURRY THE F UP! :D

    And I'll pay now if $ is important sooner than later. lemme know, l8.

    BAM! Sheaths! :D Actually all the sheaths are done! Yay!!!!

    I used to make sheaths as the final step but now sharpening is last. (and that is done too!) Send me lots of money.

    Last pic, first post: that's a beautiful blank canvass right there! Daniel, I must say, I asked for a bare bones knife, I planned to finish out myself and you went above and beyond to deliver a knife that can stand on its own!

    I know I have many other projects to finish up, but this one jumps to number two on the list, right behind my mini!

    Thanks! That is great to hear, I was worried the photos didn't come out so great... looks better in person I think.

    What are you planning for the handle? Be sure to keep us posted.

    btw, this is your 3rd run of knives??? you did a run of bushcrafters? (help me out, how many in that run?)

    then you did a run of legal EDCs? (how many there?)

    and now A2 tantos.. (yes, how many?)

    doh, I guess the run of 7 choppers would be a run.. and I know how many are in that one :D

    Did you do just a run of EDCs recently too? (how many?)

    What is the next run? (Ti run?) and are you still doing one ofts and custom requests?

    :D Thanks!

    One off's and customs - Absolutely!

    Currently I am holding off on orders until I get more caught up, I'm still working on knives ordered last year.

    I do want to focus on offering proven designs and doing small custom runs where customers pick the options. I'm also hoping to do runs of one style of knife all done the same way.

    I'm trying to support my family and plan on making it long term as a maker. Customer input will dictate my future plans.

    Officially next - mixed run of 8 knives, orders and new designs. They are profiled but not drilled or heat treated yet.

    After that - more orders, including D2 Tantos and Ti Bottle Opener Knives, I hope to have a few extras to sell

    Later this month or early next - Credit Card Knives

    I'm going to focus on older orders until I am more caught up, after that I want to switch to doing more custom runs. Customers pick the options but there will be way less wait time. I stopped taking orders a while back and still have an entire full notebook of knives to make.


    Great to hear! It is a nice size for all sorts of cutting.

    Much appreciated!

    Daniel the toxic green scales with stonewashed finish looks great. Just in time for fathers day! Woo hoo me!

    So much going on here. I like the sound of credit card and Ti bottle opener knives!! Can I get on the list for either if there is a list?!

    Thanks,

    Brian

    Great. I like the ones that allow time to save a bit.

    The Japanese wrap tantos look so "right" to me. What's up with the choil on the red days king one? Did someone request it?

    Sounds good. The choil was just to try something different on one, that one will be for sale along with the black/silver tracer and the white rayskin tanto.
