Devils need to know Mike......
Introduce yourself to the Jerzee Devil here:Testing the Waters (new member introductions)
Testing the Waters (new member introductions)
Uncoated Bravo neckers in A2 with normal handles (as in not screwed on, but glued and pinned with bravo contours...) please and thanks.
this is a wish list thread right?
These are Kind of New.
Convex Scandi Grind in CPM3V.
The Neckers are going very well
We are already making a second run after only about 6 weeks.
The Bravo-1s are still killin' My Production Schedule.
We are making another 600 of the Bravo-1s in about 2 weeks.
I think we are well up over 5000 of them delivered so far.
Our Machinist has just added his third CNC Mill so we will have enough machine time in 2010 for all of the folders without taking away from our regular production.
The folder is getting Closer.
This is just a proto and it will be a bit more styled up but I'm still testing it.
We are going to try to do at least three Folders in 2010 now that Travis has the extra Milling Machine.
As some of you know we make knives for other knife companies and the Blackjack knives have really taken off. We made them a couple of thousand of them this year and the just ordered 500 more to be delivered before the SHOT Show.( A Mix of Model 1-7s and HALO Attacks)
They also want more of the New Model 125 as soon as I can fit them into the Schedule.
They want me to design a new boot knife for the line for 2010 and I just have not had the time to finalize it.
We have had to hire two more folks and I'm going to hire at least two more in the next few months.
Reid also has to hire another person for the sheath shop and Travis has to hire another person (or two) for the machine shop.(Reid is getting a lot of work from other knife companies)
He is talking about going to 2 shifts in the machine shop. We have developed a new sight rail for the M-4 and he is also doing all of the Scope Mounts for our Friends at Dakota Arms.
We are about 10 days away from Releasing the New S-T-S- 5 Compact Fighter that was requested by Force Recon.
Here is the CAD.
These will be Powder Coated with detachable handle slabs like the Bravo-Neckers.
This is a short run and there will only be about 180 for civilian sales on this first run.
Once Travis gets that third Mill up - tooled up and running right we will start on the Butterfly knives for another Company.(I'm pretty confident that he will have to add another)
They want to start off with about 1000 of them.
As some of you know - George Brinkley - the owner of the marbles trademark - filed for chapter 7 - leaving the Brand name in the hands of the courts.
There are a number of people interested in purchasing the marbles name from the Bank.
All of them have individually Contacted me to see if I would make the entire American made line of knives if they were the successful bidder.
I told each one of them that I would be happy to make the knives.
When this happens we will have to fit the Marbles production in with the Bark River and all of our other Outside Jobs.
As usual - next year will be interesting.
I know that this is a Down Economy but we seem not to be effected by it and our business just keep growing.
Aside from all of that - not much happening.

I will get me one of each. And I don't buy fighters but that one just looks too good to pass up.
What are the dimensions on the Liten Bror? Similar to the Aurora? It looks narrower and the handle looks a little more tapered toward the back than an Aurora?
Are the bolts on the neckers slightly recessed or do they protrude slightly from the handles?
Are there differences in the 2009 Bravo-1 from previous models?

Why isn't Travis a member here? He can make money here too
The Liten Bror is smaller than the it's big Brother the Aurora.
The blade is right at 3.775 inches and the handle is still 4 inches so you have plenty to hang on to.
The Screw sets on the necker do protrude just a little from the Surface of the handle.
We did the first one totally Flush and you could feel the rim of the Recess in your hand.
It was actually less Comfortable than leaving a little of the Screw head stick up.
We have not Changed the Bravo-1 since it's introduction a couple of years ago.
I don't know if the S-T-S- 5 will be as successful but we are ready to ramp up the production on it if necessary.
Mike, it makes me happy to hear your business is thriving. I like it when the good guys win. Keep up the good work.
That folder looks
I absolutely love it!
Have you picked a name for it yet? Will it be in the Bravo series?
