    On quite a few of the posts that I have looked at I am unable to see the pictures that were posted. In fact there is no indication that a picture was ever posted other than a mention by the poster and comments by others. Now, it been quite a while since I have visited the forum, but after a...

    First knife completed in a long time

    As many of you know I have a number of afflictions that have been slowing me down. However I have made a determined effort to fight through it and follow my passion. The greatest reward was seeing the face of the new owner who told me that I had not only met his requirements but that I had gone...

    Corby help

    I bought some corby's from Boss to make some smaller knives thinking they would be the ticket. Funny thing is, I can't figure out how to drill the handle material out for them. Can anyone tell me what they use to make the holes to use these. They have a .185 head and a .135 shaft.

    Alittle help with a unique request...

    I recently had a prospective customer ask me about making a knife using a wild turkey leg for the handle. He explained that the spur could serve as a finger guide. Personally, I cant imagine a knife like this, but if you have seen something like this, or have made something like this, or have an...

He sent a news clipping outlining the womans plight and gave me his affiliation information as well as his personal contact information. I believe this guy is legitimate and the cause is...

    Brotherhood is sweet

    Terry (aka kidterrico) and Wade Hougham pulled the nicest stunt on me any guy could ever hope to have pulled on them. Terry bought a sheath from me, sent it to Wade. Wade made a knife to fit it and then these two hopeless souls sent it to me as a gift. When I found out about this gesture I...

    Wicked Edge ?

    I feel like I ought to be getting frequent flyer miles for riding the short bus so much, but here goes another example of my undying ineptitude. …and I know this horse has probably been rode to death and been buried. But I've got a brand new shovel and I'm going to dig this horse up and see if...
