2017 Finished out really well :) I have about a 4 month backlog to start 2018. I post most WIP stuff on my instagram @timostheos but I will post the better pictures here as well.

I still take a fair amount of re handle commissions. 120$ labor plus materials and shipping for western (150$ labor for wa). Did you know you can have a
western shape handle with a Wa type balance? https://i.imgur.com/1tD2bNQ.png

I am open to custom orders with about a 4-6 month wait. I will work with any steel but stocking the following: aebl, nitrov, W2, hitachi blue#2, 1095
General pricing information: http://timothyjohnsonknives.com/2016-custom-price-list/

I do have the following projects started but not claimed. These can be a had a bit sooner than the standard lead time. PM me if you have an interest.

Several out door knives in the following steels: 1084, 1095, cru forge v, nitro-v, and aebl (approx. 4" blade length)' https://i.imgur.com/kDEulrh.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/AAo1h52.jpg https://i.imgur.com/LHTEjsN.jpg

Belt finished XHP steel with a Lace figure Redwood burl handle and g10 ferrule. The handle is gently contoured. If anyone wondering on the process for this type of handle here are some details:
Ferrule is fit and handle block is broached and drilled. A little fine tuning of the broach and tang is needed to properly locate the pin hole. The handle is epoxied and left to cure for 24 hours.
The handle is then squared up to the now affixed knife. I pencil is my lines and rough it out with a 60 grit belt. The handle is then finish shaped with 220 grit leather backed sanding block up to about 600 gritand then a soft foam backed sanding block the rest of the way.
