KITH 2019

Here is my 2018 KITH WIP. Others should post a link to there WIP.


I really enjoyed the 2018 kith. It was a lot of fun. I would encourage anyone wanting to join, to give it their very best shot. You will learn a great deal about knife making as well as about yourself.

On 2019, I am riding the fence. I have a couple of projects to complete and do not know if I want another project, right now. Let me think about it a bit...

I have never done a bowie so that may lower the level of “my best work” or it could raise it. If y'all want to take that chance I would be in for a bowie. I guess we could change it to “the best bowie you can make”

Funny I was ruminating over what to make. I kept coming back to Bowie. So , I'm pretty set on one , but I'll go with whatever y'all decide. BTW , anyone recognize this Zito fella? Didn't we used to have a member by a similar name here in the olden days?

He is lurking. Getting ready to show case all the knives he has been making!!

Same here. I'm looking at some bowie designs now. I don't think they're necessarily beyond my skill, but I've never made one, so I don't know how it will go

It is kind if a cool idea for us all to make a specific knife like a bowie. I would enjoy seeing everyone’s take on the knife. Lets beat the idea around a little and decide. If it would prevent someone from paticipating then they could make another kind of knife.

I like the idea of a specific knife, if for nothing else but to force one out of “the box”. I’ve done a few in the past where a specific skill was showcased, like hollow grind, or flexible blade aka fillet knife.
It’s fun. If all anyone ever did was drop point hunters it would be boring.
And I totally agree. If someone can’t make a Bowie for any reason, they can make something else.
