    Does anyone use a KSF Sheath for your Wilder knife?? Just wondering if they would fit and if so what model.

    Honestly I think any of the pocket sheaths would work. The DPN and SFN are around 6" long and the DPFN is about 6.5" long and no more than 1" wide

    Thanks for the reply. Can't wait to see the finished product. I know the guys at work are looking at your knives and planning their options as we speak.

    I would love to see pics of the SFFN when finished. I have been wanting to order a SFN and never thought of the finger option.

    THese are really cool. I'd like to get on the list for either a loveless necker or a a DPFN. Can you squeeze 4 fingers on the grip with either of them?

    I have small to medium sized hands & 4 fingers are no problem on mine. If I put them all close together I'd even have room for a fifth on there.

    The grip is about 3,6" on mine.

    That looks like it would work fine. Rub it into the leather strop then run the knife over it with the edge trailing.

    There are a few in this thread... somewhere.

    Hey Jason... any idea when you will start on this next batch? Not being impatient, just excited to have some of your blades!

    I plan to start cutting them out this week. There are 50 knives in this batch and it will take a while but I promise to be diligent. I have a full time day job, a wife and two young kids, and I am very active in the city so its hard for me to find time in the shop but I promise they will be done as quick as I can.

    I have 2 knives in this batch. I can't speak for others, but I don't want you to rush Jason. As you achieve more succeess, your demand grows. The trick is to keep putting out products of the same or higher quality while increasing your output.

    50 knives is a massive batch and will take quite a while, especially with the rest of life. Please, take your time, and everyone else, while I share In your anticipation and excitement, let's not pester Jason or push him.

    Good things come to those who wait!!!

    Respectfully-

    Drew

    Thanks a bunch Drew. As you pointed out, it's easy to rush and skimp on quality and that's exactly what I DON'T want to do since I want to be known for quality work and outstanding customer service. I think what I'll do is to profile, grind, and heat treat these all together and then finish the handles in batches of 10-15 so that the fit and finish doesn't suffer.

    I know that at least two people have orders in that will be Christmas presents and I plan to have them finished by Dec 01. If anyone else needs theirs by Christmas let me know and I'll move theirs to the front of the list. Otherwise I will do them according to blade shape because similar blade shape means similar handle shape = repetition and quality.

    Thanks, I hope the wait will be worth it. I personally have a hard time shipping off every single knife. I love them and want to keep them all!
