    Really nice. A fresh approach on the execution of stag handles, very unique and artistic to say the least. Love it!

    I was able to work out a deal with Mr. Esnyx for the barlow he had on the exchange a little while ago and am quite pleased I did.

    Evan has really stepped up his game and is turning out some great mods, as well as his custom pieces. I am always looking forward now to what will come out of his shop next. If you're thinking you'd like something unique for a knife, I suggest giving Esnyx a look.

    He did a great job fitting the stag, and I especially like the bolster work he did. Just good stuff all the way around on this knife. Wicked sharp too. And he added an EO notch to it for me knowing I'm fond of EO models.

    Knife is shown next to an alox SAK, and a Pony Jack for size comparison.

    And Evans pic showing the Lloyd stag & stepped bolster work better. Hopefully he doesn't mind me lifting his pic. :)

    Jack, this Case, IMO is one of if not the best mod that Evan has done so far :thumbup:

    Joe, this is a beautiful knife also :thumbup:

    I saw it on the exchange and thought it was a masterpiece. Stepped up his game indeed - and I expect that to continue. :thumbup:;)

    My eyes just refuse to cooperate with me. Could you take a few pictures closer to the bolster?

    Thank you, now I see clearly how it is.

    I've never seen bolsters like that before. Do they have an origin in old cutlery, or is it a new thing Evan came up with?

    Either way I really enjoy seeing the pictures of Esnyx knives. You are obviously very skilled, and I'm exited to see what the future brings.

    That 99 with the Bonestag is a very striking conversion! And the step bolsters are nicely done, and traditional. They have been around a long time.
    Nice to see your work evolving, Evan! The knives look great.

    For the past year or so, knives have been a large part of my life. I have never found something that has brought me so much joy and excitement(besides my family), and I feel I would be doing myself a disservice by not pursuing it, and giving it my all.

    Well, folks, its official. After going back and forth for the past couple months, I have finally reached a decision. Today, I gave my two weeks notice to leave my job in order to pursue my passion full time! It's going to take me some time to plan it all out, acquire equipment, and set up my new shop, but, before long, I will be in full production!

    I have a long journey ahead of me, but I think that it will be well worth it, and I have this community to thank for it! So many of you have been so supportive of my work, giving me the courage to pursue this full time, and I couldn't be more appreciative of it all. I only hope to live up to, or exceed, your expectations! I hope to see some of you at future knife shows!!

    Wish me luck!!

    Evan, all the best to you sir! I look forward to seeing you grow in your passion and the future work you will produce. I have no doubt that you will exceed our expectations. Let us know what shows you will be at once your own your feet.

    Congratulations for doing what I think most of us want to do, but very few dare.

    I hope this works out well for you.

    Evan, if I were to encourage or cheer on anyone it would be you! Your work is so well thought out and even historic at times that you have nothing but greatness ahead of you IMO. It's always exciting to hear of someone else, even in these weird financial times we live in today, going for it with everything they have! Your talent is there, the desire and dream is there and after all this is still America! I can't wait to see what starts showing up once you have more of what need to achieve your goals!

    Evan, I don't possess your knife making gift but I have been in your shoes when taking the plunge in starting your own business. Honestly fear is a great motivator for me, as our boy's were 11 & 6 years of age at the time. I don't accept failure very well unless I can find a positive in the mix.

    I'm also not much of a gambler but I'd put my hard earned money on you every day. Your morals and ethics are outstanding and to me your already successful:thumbup:

    Congrats for pulling the ripcord and heading out on your own. I did that 2 years ago (with a software business...completely not knife related) and haven't looked back.

    Best of luck and enjoy the ride!!!
