I will be there with bells on...well maybe not bells?
But it will be my first time, is it a good show? I have heard mixed feelings about it?

Sweet Terry. I like the size and nice choice of woods, very clean work. And the photographs are first class too. Got any tips on getting shots like those?

Thanks guys.

Kevin, come on by and see me.

Don, I don't have any fancy lighting (something I need to resolve in the near future). I have to take the shots outdoors, and can only get a decent shot on an overcast day. I make the shots then tweak things with photo editing software.

In each of the three shots above, I used the photo editing software to remove the knives from the original photos. Next I created computer generated backgrounds, and placed the knife images on those backgrounds. To give it depth I created computer generated shadows.

Hey Don,
There won't be anything real artsy or any big Bowies. My decision to get a table was a last minute thing that happened while visiting with Jerry Fisk. We were talking when he picked up a phone, dialed a number, and handed the phone to me. He said it was Bruce Voyles and for me to tell him I wanted a table.

So everything be small, simple working knives. I've finished three and plan to make up three more. If everything goes according to plan, here's what I'll have:

Two of these ultra-light utilities (code named Platypus)

Two of my Montero hunters

Two of my El Camino dress tacs

Sorry to be so long getting back to you slagstag. I use Paintshop Pro. The latest version is very similar to Photoshop, yet at about 1/6 the price.
