    I only need 6 hours of sleep at night and 8 more during the day...

    Good morning! I'll hopefully have a Kwaiken finished up and posted today, wish me luck!

    Cat nappin' is where it's at! haha
    I got used to sleeping a few hours at a time when I was in Alaska. I actually liked it, it seemed like I got a lot more done. It took me over a year to get back to sleeping a solid eight hours.
    I look forward to checkin' out that Kwaiken when you finish it up!

    I joke, lol I have kids. :D

    Hi Wayne! What's going on! What have you been machining?

    I have 5 knives almost done, one is an order then I'll have 4 up for grabs. I'm working on parts/materials/tooling for older orders so selling some stuff but have a big backlog. $400 in tooling etc is here now for that stuff...

    I'm also waiting on materials/etc or new knives, 9 new designs in the works.

    I've been playing lots of guitar when I'm not in the shop! I hope to have a band together pretty soon.

    Hey @Daniel Fairly Knives , I'm not machining any more. Changed jobs back in July. I'm a technician at an auto parts manufacturing plant. Better pay and benefits. I'm making fuel injectors now. I trouble shoot around 15 machines. Always something new to learn. Rarely gets boring.

    That sounds good, you can't beat better pay and an interesting job.

    Me too! I'll have more knives up soon! I'm taking it easy right now as I got my eye shot last week but plan on grinding this afternoon.

    Spring is here and I have 5 foot tall snowbanks and several feet on the ground, Winter was brutal!!! The shop had snow right to the top of the roof and one shed got partially crushed!

    New designs might be out this week, it depends when stuff gets here! I'm excited!

    Not painful but not exactly pleasant! You can see the needle go in which is really weird, pretty sore afterwards. I finally made it back in the shop today and got some grinding done... also working on getting lenses for my new full face respirator "in respirator" glasses.
