    This is for everyone who placed a custom order from 9/13/18 to current.

    I decided to post these all in one thread rather than trying to keep pictures organized per each model.
    Mainly becuse I usually work with more than one model at a time.

    No problem! You are welcome! I tried to remember to take pictures as much as possible. I hope it adds to the experience and also enlightens a little about some of the steps involved in making these knives.

    I've been flowing along on IG and really enjoying the progress. Can't wait to see the finished product man!

    I, too, have been following the WIP posts on IG. While the knives easily speak for themselves, watching the process does elevate my appreciation for them and the joy of ownership even more.

    Thank you, Chris, for sharing these pics and explaining the many steps that go into the creation of your pieces.

    :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    It really does. I'm always really happy to see WIP pictures, and it's really great to see mine in there. Really thrilled to get my first OK&T.

    Now it will need pants, though...

    @bonafide often works together with Chris and should be able to set you up with a perfect pairing.

    Congrats on your first OKT :thumbsup:

    I'll admit I'm kinda wishing I'd gone black over natural rather than ivory over natural, but it still looks fantastic.

    With all the available options, it’s easy to start second guessing choices. I’m sure we’ve all been there. I think it looks great and, moreover, is a combo not seen quite as often.
    I think you chose well!

    Thanks for bringing the awesome, Chris! Only one problem—I’m at work and after seeing these photos I need a change of pants. :confused::oops::D

    What is the wood used in that Vildmark in the top row, middle? Looks kind of like Buckeye? Super gorgeous.

    I do this every time. Then when I see Chris's finished product, I'm completely happy with it and glad I made the choices I did. My Warthog from the group buy late last year is one of my favorite knives in my collection.

    @madcap_magician, ivory G10 is a beautiful choice and makes a stunning knife. Any lighter color handle can show transfer though. If you reach out to @bonafide, I would mention the ivory. He may have some recommendations to limit/prevent color transfer from the sheath. Any transfer would only be slight, and it comes off easily, but you may be interested in avoiding that maintenance if possible.

    That's a good tip, thanks. I usually prefer natural leather for sheaths and holsters anyway.

    Looks like California buckeye burl to me, either gray/yellow-dyed or natural.

    Chris posted up all the Vildmarks with rough shaped handles on his Instagram yesterday if anyone who doesn't already follow his IG wants to get a sneak peak. Looking good!! :thumbsup:
