    Hey everyone!

    I have been especially productive lately and busy as always!

    D2 tantos are almost ready for sheaths, the epoxy only has to cure for 24 more hours. I used more belts on these than any batch yet. I think the finish came out nicely.

    They are likely all spoken for, I think I'll have to eventually make another round of them.

    The 12 knife Ti Bottle Opener Knife run is on! They are just barely started but will be on time as scheduled.

    Mini Cleavers... the feedback was so good I have more on the way! I was up late last night doing the heat treat, these were a 3' bar of steel yesterday morning.
    They are 1/8" O1 tool steel and most are 6-7" long.

    Credit Card Knives
    I have been having a tough time sourcing a countersink for the finger holes. I ordered the first one 5 weeks ago, it came in late and was the wrong size. This last one has been 10+ days now and the manufacturer won't answer the phone... I think it is a wash too. I'm going to probably order another one today. They are expensive too, I have to sell several knives just to cover the cost of one bit!

    No worries, what is important is that once they are in hand and around forever that they will be the best! I always think of that... this will be around forever with my name on it, it better be something I am proud of.

    Keychain Tool
    - they will be around asap!

    I have so much other stuff going on in the shop it isn't even funny!

    I hope everyone is having a great day! :)

    it's great to sort of peek over the shoulder of an inspired knifemaker/mad scientist on a roll!
