    Alright guys. I am done with orders. I am not willing to just start piling up a bunch of orders, but I am willing to do small runs for y'all if you are interested.

    The first run will be limited to ten knives. I want this to occur every other month or so. We may have to ajust that as time goes on. Subsequent runs are likely going to be 5 people. If it gets where we can't fill at least 5 spots, I am going to let it drift west. For the first run I am proposing a handle configuration of Cocobolo scales, and natural canvas micarta liners, bolsters, pins, and bullseye fillers, but that part is negotiable. In this first run, a participant can choose his model/models. Please don't ask for all ten spots. Max of two spots per person please. When the list is full, I will order the steel, and document the whole process. Edited to add that I'd like to stick to Woodsman size or smaller.

    *The point of doing a common handle configuration is to keep the overhead down. If there is some combo that is affordable, practical, and you want better, I can ajust that part. I won't be doing stabalized woods though. I want this knife close to base price. The bolsters add $20, but I'd like that to be the end of upgrades.

    Signup here by picking your model. Then please send me an e-mail that contains all of your contact information. This e-mail will serve as your signing up and your name doesn't go onto the list until I have that 411.

    I hate to be greedy, but it's christmas so I'm in for a runt and a nessie. (unless you want to make me a BLChopper...but I suspect that's over the line.)

    I'll take a spot Andy. Leaning towards a Recluse with a convex sabergrind, but do you need those details yet? Can we specify # of pins, steel thickness, etc...?

    Glad you are doing this, Andy. Really cool. If I wasn't waiting for you to tell me when I need to pay you for your personal Bushfinger, I'd jump on the list! :)

    Did I miss it? If not I would like a convex sabre grind Hiking Buddy. If I missed it, I'll try again next time.

    I'd like a Woodsman to match the Bushfinger you just sent me.
    Cocobolo with Black Canvas Bolsters and Convex Sabre Grind.
    I'm ok with the next run if I missed this one.
