    Since I am no longer taking orders, I have decided to create a "wish list" of knives and combos that you would like to have. There is no guarentee that I will make these, however I feel this is a good solution for both of us and I will work from it time to time. Please keep post in this thread to specific individual request and avoid posting things like " such and such sounds sweet" or "would love to see that one" and such.

    Bison in cpm154 tapered tang with natural box elder burl over black with green pinstripe

    Thank you for all of the support and I hope this will work for everyone!

    I have two I would like, and I wish I would have put an order in before.
    Shortmuk with Osage. Black liner with orange pin stripe and a matching bantam. And a matching bison. Seriously I would love that. All in cpm. Can you make this happen? I'd put an order in and wait months if I had to for a bantam like that or muk

    I want a really cool Big Mama Bison... Black bolstered osage scales... tapered. I want you to do filework on the spine that reads Big Mama Bison... :) If you think the filework would be in poor taste, I'll gladly accept it without!

    Badger in 5/32 CMP154 (with hammer textured flats), Black linen micarta bolsters atop buckeye burl with black liners and blue pinstripe.

    *Edit* I changed my mind a bit and your wood work is so damn nice, I don't know if I'd want to use a bolster. So... given the choice, I think I'd want a Badger in 5/32 CMP154, buckeye burl with black liners and blue pinstripe + mosaic pin (size/location of your choice), though I'd happily buy the blade in either configuration with or without the bolster.

    a) evergreen in the bolster with black pins in the shadetree OR

    Looking good folks, I am taking them into consideration during my next layout of steel.

    FYI, I hollow grind and have started to do a few flat grinds. Convex grinding is not in the mix yet, I would like to conquer it before offering it on one of my knives for sale.

    Thanks! Keep them coming!

    Quartermaster in 3/32 or 1/8, tapered tang with file work, Saphire shadetree burlap with black micarta bolsters, over black with orange liners! Oh, and lots of the hammered look with epic spalting on the non ground part of the blade.

    PS: If by chance you've mastered the convex by the time you got to mine, I'd go for that, but either way I'd be happy! And I'd leave the artistry of the pin choice up to you.

    Found the pic of the file work I really dig:


    That sir is crazy cool file work!!!

    Loveless like hunter, CPM 154, 1/8, but 5/32 is ok as well, tapered tongue, handle from burl or stabilized wood preferably dark like walnut, cocobolo, African blackwood, wobocho but not the must ( I do not want bocoto) with 2 mosaic pins and metal boilster (nickel silver guard- if I do not mistaken). pretty much like you did for yourself with other type of wood handles that it will not be identical twins. please no other visible pins, except above. liner and pinstripes what you think will be good match for it, except pink and blue.

    Stingray EDC CPM154 1/8", tapered tongue, handle burl or stabilized wood - choose something what you like, from handle material you have you have, with 1 mosaic pin opposite side from the hole for the rope ( forgot it's name) toward the blade side or in the middle. no other visible pins.
    liner and pinstripes what you think will be good match for it, except pink and blue.
