I have too many to post bro, I sell a lot of knives every week and get orders daily. This week I sold four groomsmen knives, three up swept skinners, two capers, one boot knife and two EDC's. Tomorrow I have six steak knives to profile rough grind and heat treat. I have to get ready for next week I have two sets of kitchen knives and make time for a set of matching groomsmen knives. I do take off Sundays for church. Knife making isn't a hobby for me anymore.

Okay I'll play. All these go to the same person ( most of my work is custom orders ) 7 skinners the same for groomsmen's gifts and one Alabama Damascus Montana skinner with spalted pecan handles. Seven Kydex sheaths and one leather sheath with initials stamped. Going to work real hard today to start on the sheaths and have them all finished up by Saturday. This will make 14 out the shop this week... and it starts all over again next week. It's definitely an entire day of working with a respirator jimping and shaping those handles tear me up. If I remember I'll try to post some finished pictures.

I've been trying real hard to take some time off for some serious hog hunting, was going this weekend but, work comes first. Maybe, I'll get to go to Church Sunday, I had to skip last Sunday. God is good, He knows I'm busy, He's the One that got me this way.

Lots of shaping and sanding for you today up Post a pic when they are done!

Too cold in my old shop today and my son is coming up to go to my grandsons baseball game this afternoon so I'm taking the day off. I have 8 in process in the shop plus waiting on some Alabama Damascus billets ordered for some other orders. It's good to stay busy!

Did your hamon come out of the etching dark? I use a lot of 1075 because I will do a hamon from time to time and 1075 had enough manganese to give your a pronounced hamon.

Here's one I did last month.

Mike I've got a very heavy 6x6 set of elk horns that have always been kept indoors so the are natural colored. I'll text you a few pics this weekend and we will see if they might be something you might want or need. Take care sir
