    Andy, thanks. I enjoy seeing your knives whenever you post them up. Although it isn't likely to happen, it would be fun to get a bunch of the makers from the forum together sometime.

    Working on getting some loose ends wrapped up for the Tulsa show on the 29th right now. My bandsaw quit working on me so that has slowed me down a bit.

    I'm WAY behind on orders so there isn't much new to show right now. I have 18 knives on order and I'm waiting on steel for several of them.

    I do plan on making a camp knife for the WS&S challenge so I'll be posting up some pictures of that when I get it going. I am also planning an elk hunting trip and of course I'm going to need a knife set for that. I have the patterns pretty much settled on but haven't finalized the materials yet.

    I'm still around, just busy and haven't had a chance to update much.

    I do appreciate the interest though. Hope all is well with everyone and if you have a knife on order from me, I'm doing everything I can to get caught up as quickly as possible.

    Thanks,
    SDS

    Please make it a point to stop by and say hello. I always enjoy getting to put faces with screen names and talking knives sure doesn't hurt my feelings either.

    Cool, make sure to say hi and remind me who you are. I stink at remembering names. I like that clip point knife you have on your site. Neat knife.

    I guess I have kind of neglected the forum for a bit. With school starting back and Cub Scouts getting wound back up things have been hectic. I'm busily trying to get caught up on orders right now and haven't had much time to take many pictures but I'll try to post up a couple from a knife I'm working on for a member.

    Oil hardening steels are not something I make a lot of but they are impressive to watch being born. Here are a few pictures of a large camp knife being quenched.

    No kidding Mike. But you forgot the mens bible study I lead, the kids bible study class, the cub scout meeting, the two baseball games, the cub scout fishing derby, the three parties, and the wifes bible study...........oh and work. But I was able to get to the shop for awhile today and got some good work done.

    I managed to get the edge bevels ground on 14 knives, got 4 blades ground, and two more heat treated. It's slow but getting there.

    Thanks for checking out the thread and I'll try to post pictures as I can.
