    Been working on some new designs and projects.
    All builds are from scratch with no kits involved.
    Acquired a piece of USA Damascus, as I do not have the equipment to make my own.
    The first knife is a liner lock with brass and mammoth ivory.

    Thanks Strig. Appreciated.

    Thank you sir. Up to this point, my folder production has not yet filled family and friend requests. I’m working on processes to increase pieces turned out of the shop.

    I like the nickel and stag one.

    Let us know when you start taking orders.

    Yes, definitely interested in your work when you have the chance to branch out. I understand and appreciate you taking your time, seen way to many makers get in over their heads!

    Thank you, sir.

    Absolutely. Will put out a PSA.

    Already in over my head!! Just not with orders.
    I have been making fixes blade knives for seven years. In that process I found it best to make a knife and sell the product, rather than sell the product then have to fulfill the promise.

    This is 100% the reason why I stopped doing modding work on knives. I still love to tinker and do so quite often. But I hate knowing that I'm holding onto someone else's money while they wait for me to find time to work on something for them. The stress of it took the fun out of it so I gave up doing it for other people.
