  1. I've got one....picked mine up in 1979. Enjoy!
  2. Let's not forget knife #1 is still available folks.
  3. I'm still hobbling around but I got tired of sitting on my keester. I take is slow and steady. Thanks for asking.
  4. I've picked a blade I feel confident you will like. I plan on making two handles and I'll let you pick one and I'll put the other up for sale. These handles take time....lots of time. The pieces have to be cut, sanded and there is a lot of cutting of G10. These handles take me about two weeks to assemble and cure before I can ever begin to shape them so it will be weeks before you see a knife. I'm just letting you know up front. I work in the shop for 4-5 hours a day tops in between doing the things I need to do around the house.
  5. Damascus isn't in the future at the present time. Damascus is a fickle mistress and I have to be in the right frame of mind to mess with it and right now I'm not feelin' it. Sorry.
  6. When you say similar do you mean similar as in the style of the handle specifically or knife size or the exact shape of the blade? As you can imagine the handle takes forever to assemble....no really.
  7. I was thinking about it but not everyone wants to spring for a leather sheath. I can arrange to have one made if anyone desires it.
  8. 1. 1/4" thick 1084 carbon steel. Blade at 7 1/2", OAL at 12 1/2". It has a custom made brass finger guard with G10 and faux ivory handle accents. Handle made from Zapota. Brass pin and lanyard hole. It has a false edge/swage running entire length of spine. Includes combo leather/kydex sheath. $145 shipped. 2. Sold!!! 1/4" thick 1084 carbon steel. Blade at 5 3/4", OAL 11 1/2". Finger guard and steel handle accent are also 1084 carbon steel., brass and G10 accents. The handle is made from 6 pieces of Padauk, 4 pieces of birds eye maple and 2 pieces of chakta vigra. This is truly a one of a kind knife. There is a false edge/swage on the spine and comes with the combo leather/kydex sheath. $155 shipped. Thanks for lookin'!
  9. I remember it all....as a kid growing up in the 50's we had a store much like that not 2 miles from our house. I loved that place. Old Mr Timmons was always good for a piece of hard candy from the big jar on the counter. And yes...my first car had a suicide knob on it.
  10. I've always said it's not easy being me but it seems to be getting a bit harder lately.
