TM,

My goodness, that is exquisite craftsmanship. I'm completely in awe.

If you don't mind, how long have you been at your craft? I can't imagine how long it takes to hone skills like that.

Lol, I guess this will show my age a little. But I made my first complete knife, start to finish in 1998. Before that I piddled with putting handles on factory blades. From 1998 to around 2000, I probably only made a few knives a year. 2001 people started buying them off of me. 2010, I got pretty serious about it, and 2014 I quite my job and now do it fulltime. I just turned 42, so to answer your question, ive been piddling/modding/making knives my whole adult life and even drew them and carved them out of sticks when I was a kid. So, a day or two! :)

If I was that guy's boss I wouldn't know whether to give him a raise for being so good or chew him out for screwing around enough to get that good.

Congrats! Keep up the good work...and the twisted humor. It will come in handy later, like when she hits puberty and starts dating.

Cheers Greggins. That is the actual real reason I own knives. I'm too piss weak to learn a martial art..

Hey, I still do that at 16! Hooray for squirty turds! :D

Glad all is well Springy. :thumbup:

Squirty turds are the best Dawso. No straining, no aneurysms. Just skid marks. Gotta love it. Good old skiddies..

No gang signs!!

Before you know it, she'll be running out the front door to hop on her boyfriend "Snake's" chopper, screaming how she hates her family and is going to run away. And it'll all be traced back to this pic...

At least that's how my nightmares usually end...

Mine will probably begin if I actually get some sleep!

Congrats bud!
Is she your first?

Thanks Bill. It's the 2nd for me and 1st for my wife. I have a 15yr old and a 5wk old. Yeps. That's the way to space your kids out!

Such a cutie. Congrats dad!

Thanks heaps Maus. She's the most gorgeous little creature ever!

That is one cute bean there Dad, good to hear from ya and the updated pic.

oh ya, in on two like the cool kids do.

Thanks brother chip. I'm still here. You guys will never get rid of me! NEVER! Mwahahahahaha! I'll likely end up like a new mother on Facebook; won't stop posting new pictures of my beautiful baby girl.. I'm so stoked I got a girl.. Seriously though. I gotta learn how to fight..

In on 3. There are still people who haven't reset their posts per page limits?

Gearing up for a fantastic birthday here. Found out today my parents decided to shell out and get me something from my long-term wishlist (34" ultrawide monitor for my computer), which looks like it's inbound next week. Wife is getting me new parts to get my mill back up and running, and one of my favorite authors is in town and doing book signings. Also, Crouching Tiger 2 out on Netflix, and Daredevil season 2 coming on the 18th.

Finally got my ps4 if anyone wants to add me and play star wars battlefront or something

Send me a request...
JeepBlade444

Todd...that's Freekin beautiful bro...beyond knocking it outta the park. Hope they frame it and all that!

I'll never own a spyderco...they're so damn ugly...remind me of spy vs spy every time I see one. Never seen on made in USA either...even if they were, nope.

Yeah...I'm loving some Buck folders. For me folders are pure utility as I carry my 11/24/14 daily, I just don't see what anything over a $60 folder will do for me better than a sub $60. In fact....I don't even have a +$25 folder cept some vintage stuff that I don't carry that were inherited. On that note...I had a spyderco that was passed down and I traded it for a BK7 so...

I'll check out that vantage pro. I've been eyeballin something like that in a premium steel. Not crazy about the 110 style. So far this Wally world $15 special 721 has been more than suitable for my utility needs and its been seeing action daily since I snagged it.

I'm pretty brand loyal with about everything. If I know it's quality I'll stick with it. I know Buck has a bunch of Chinese crap and I'll steer clear of all that but I'm thinking it'll be my next Blade brand behind anything Ka-Bar since I can't get a USA Ka-Bar folder.

I know this is dragging out but I've been absent so I'll end it here...
I snagged a 1461 Impact D2 spear point today. Can't wait to check it out. It'll be my river Knife.

I will once I get everything updated. This is what I hate about getting a new system, everything has to download. Anyways, when you get a request from ONElastMothman, that's me. Do you have a mic?
