    Great work! Great designs! Hope to see some in person someday. Are you going to be in Dallas for the Spirit of Steel show?

    Hey Hank,

    Thanks! I would like to go to SOS but I'm afraid work is going to get in the way. There is a very slim chance I could make it up on Saturday.


    Thanks for all the good comments guys.

    Those all look pretty excellent to me! Not rookie material but rather very professional! Clean, the fit and finish looks perfect, the grinds look perfect as well! Great work! Good user friendly designs too.

    Rookie?

    You are definitely way past the rookie stage. If you are working a full time job and doing this much work, you must spend a lot of nite time hours. Great looking knives.
