I think we posted the same time. You have to excuse Murph, see, he was born with no manners! :D Anyway, like I said, Anything yoy want on a Magua, you can have! Thin is in! :thumbup:

I think we did post at the same time. Naw, Murph's right on the money. I was being a smartass towards him for no reason other than for what I am. A nice guy who CAN be an asshole SOMETIMES. But the strange thing is...I usually I localize the bad manners to my own family. Strange that my true self came out in a thread....hmmmm, I'll have to think on this more.

Anyway, I figured you'd pony up a serious answer after the digs were dug.

Thanks TM.:thumbup:

Is the best way to email you through the website? I don't have pm privileges yet and I have a few quick questions... nothing too urgent.

Good deal. You guys might have one somewhere in the middle of the stack from me assuming it went through the other night.

Or show up unannounced.... like an inlaw.

Unannounced visitors are greeted with the business end of a shotgun. Unless acompanied by growlers from Sun King. Then there greeted with open arms.

Todd,

It appears the finishing process on the Hornet is different from both the Yuma and Magua. Is that a parkerized finish on the Hornet? If not, what, if anything, do you do different to the Hornet that you don't do to the Yuma or Magua?

No real secret as far as different finishes. Same process all around just different ways to apply it to whatever mood Im in at the time. I use a PBC etchant solution sold at most Radio Shacks deluted 3 to 1. The 01 really reacts to it well. the different finishes are just a result of the prep work on the steel. If I want it to look old and wore, I dont remove any of the decarbonization from the heat treat, then etch it, then hand rub it with steel wool. If I want it to look black, I finish the steel out to a very uniform 400 scotch brite. then etch. for this process, there cant be anything left on the blade that you dont want to show up. both of these processes you have to neutrilize the etchant or it will rust before you can set it down on the workbench.

Ah-ha. Ok, I watched a YT video of someone using the PCB just a few days ago. Now I see it. Thanks.

I cannot find any prices for any of your products anywhere?

And you wont unless you contact me. Heres why, and please realize that this is out of necessity, not just a effort at being a a$$hole. but custom knives are just that. custom. I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I can literally do just about anything you want. As soon as I put concrete prices one something which may be a base model price, somebody will come along and order that same knife with filework, gold inlay, and mastodon ivory and think they should get it for the same price. It sounds stupid for anybody with any logic but I swear this happens all of the time. So, prices deoend on just that, SPECIFICS.

Completely understandable. But you seem to have an already established line of knives including the M-18 which now seems to be turned into a semi-production knife? Those were what I was referring to. :)

O.k. If you've seen my website I assume you are reffering to the workhorse line, I will respond to your PM tomorrow with a full price list. right now Im coming down from a 16hr. day with no dinner and on the way to the sack! good night!

Todd is known for doing the right thing. If he doesn't come through, pm your addy and I'll readily mail you a brick, 550 cord and burlap sack. Finding the right bridge is up to you.
