  12. I think as long as someone did as well as they could there is honor in the work.I think what you did for the kid is not only proper but shows the world is not so bad as major media wants us to believe.

  17. Why yuh'all harpen on Uncledaddy.Gots to get some eatins somehows.
  18. The clip,filework and caving are well done.Congrats
  19. I started with a 1" belt grinder.With great care you can make good blades on it but is much more difficult.If you can put a pyroceam platen liner on it,it would help.I began with a 1x42,then a grizzly 2x72 and now use a KMG.If you are serious about making knives then buy the KMG and skip the money spent on other grinders.Buy once,cry once,buy twice cry twice,etc...JMHO
  20. I dont recall seeing this style before.I like it.It plays with light and reflections very well.Congrats Don
  21. Thank you Don for your support.I absolutely will be posting pics.I have 16 knives nearly done.All they need is a dip in acid to expose the hamons, logos,then sheaths.All the other work is done. Dan I look forward to seeing you two there.The wakashzi(spelling?) you made last year was outstanding and I cant wait to see what you will bring this year.Peerhaps I'll make it to Token Kai too.
  22. The Bay Area Knife Collectors show is in two weeks.This is my first show and would like to invite all that come to drop by and say howwwdy.
