    Since all the knives for 2010 have shipped, I`m starting this for 2011 knives.
    This morning I ground out Set #1 Hatchet & Riverwoods, Set #4 Hatchet & Nessmuk, both for D86PQ, #1 of the yet to be named reproduction of my first knife for mqqn, and a Kentucky Fieldmate for me! :D

    Hi Stomper -

    Wow! Nice way to start on the new year's models!

    All three of those are jaw-droppers.

    That is probably the prettiest Kephart I have seen anywhere, and your Kentucky Field Mate is gorgeous with Ironwood.

    I am looking forward to seeing that JK #1 soon as well!!

    best regards -

    WOW. The KFM is gorgeous!! How is it compared to an ewok?

    Oh and btw, any way to make my version of the JK original with a full sized handle but shorter blade? Say about 3.5, 3.75, or so??

    About 1/2" shorter ( blade 2 1/2", handle 3 1/2"), and 7/8" tall compared to 1" for the EWOK. You tell me what blade length you want, and I`ll make it that size. I`m so darn easy. ;)
