I haven’t posted in here in a while; I’ve been super busy; this was last weeks work. I try to put out one knife a day. I’ll take Saturday or Sunday and profile, rough grind, heat treat and temper my blades for next week including my custom orders. I'm still making and selling over 300 knives a year.

Ben; I started making knives 18 years ago as a hobby, with each sale I bought more and more tools. Today I have a weekly procedure, I profile, rough grind heat treat and temper my weeks work on Sunday afternoon. Then Monday starts the work. Every week I get at least three custom orders and I also try to put a few out for sale in between. I never work on one knife at a time. I also have a few corporations I do work for that buy my knives for special events, with a minimum order of 10. Then there are the wedding parties and groomsmen gifts. Graduations, birthday days, I sell a lot of knives.

In between waiting on curing time for epoxy I do other things, l stabilized wood, I have always have a wood drying box going. I'm blessed to have built up a good customer base, with longevity comes repeat orders and good customer service spreads like wild fire. I'm where a lot of knife makers would love to be, but I'm not where I want to go with my knife business. I sure don't post all my work on here, just enough to keep me in the loop, besides, you'd all get tied of seeing it. roflmao
