• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

Yep, just checked and the line for my work is still silly long, thus the insane quotes on time to get to the work.

I do apologize, I am working as fast as I can without compromising the quality of my work. Its a balancing act that I am not willing to go to one side or the other. Speed does not equal quality, more often it equals cut corners. And NO I will not do that. Period.

I have passed on production work before because they asked me to cut the price while still maintaining the quality. Sorry, that aint going to happen. :)

I got here providing an excellent product at decent pricing, most all of it hand work. This wont last forever as there is a history of degenerative arthritis in my family so the clock is a tickin'. More machine work is in my future, but until then I will strive to provide the best I can do in form AND function. I dont make safe queens that arent intended to be used.

I can't thank my customers enough for their support, I am in your debt, I work for you and NO ONE else. No knife manufacturer is my boss (no matter how much they think so) and they will NOT dictate what I do and how I run my business. This is my New Years resolution. I let it happen way too many times in the past few years and no more. Its no one's business but my own and my customers. End of story.

Lets have a better year, better sheaths!

Always, and in your case I really REALLY hope the wait is worth it. :eek: :p :D and I am thinking of, if I get the time for it, making something to give to those two you were talking about. Just because. The ASHBM has been a blessing, I want to make it worth it.
