    First.....Thanks! I am completely humbled by the fact that you guys think enough of my work that you would order a piece.

    I'm pretty new to the knifemaking thing and even newer to selling my work so it has taken me a while to get my system down as far as taking orders. When I joined up here back in August of last year, Ron was just starting to talk about firing up the individual maker forums. I wasn't quite ready to officially start taking orders but he made the whole deal so tempting that I decided to jump right in. Well the response has been fantastic and the JD members have been very supportive. Initially, placing an order was a real informal thing. Someone would PM me and say....I want ______, I would say, ok I'll put you on a notify list for when I make that again. I still had a few orders I was working on from local guys and other forums so some of you have been waiting on something from me since last October. So starting this year I worked up a more formal list based on a first in first out system. You guys that have been waiting the longest are at the top of the list. Going forward I will be able to actually at least guess at a wait time and orders will be filled on a more systematic basis. Right now it seems to be running about 5-6 months for new orders. I also wont be actively pursuing sales anywhere else until I have met demand here.

    Another change, I will be having my all leather sheaths made by a real leather crafter. I have been doing it myself and based on the time it takes me I have been upcharging for it. For what I have to charge for one of my "pretty decent" leather sheaths, I can have a real sheath maker do his magic and make the customer a real work of art. I will still do my own kydex for no additional charge and will still offer the leather hybrid loop for just a little more. In the time it takes me to make a leather sheath I can make a knife so this will improve the work flow greatly.

    Thanks for hanging in there with me and participating on my forum. Once I get caught up I have a few new designs I want to play with so I am looking forward to a fun year.
