  1. as of this posting thire are a very few tables still open
  2. last renn faire season , I was walking through the Bone Carving booth at Maryland Renn Faire, and noticed a Bodkin that was bought by Will(the owner/main carver) it was a first gen Bodkin that was at best a very plain jane piece well Will's magic turned it into a real looker and I though some would like the carvings,I know Im blown away at Will's work and My work is in the same booth as makers like Kc Lund enjoy the pics! ~M~
  3. the Cal knives club has taken over what was left of the pasadena blade expo show, it would be nice to bring this back to its former glory NOTE: CONTACT Alex Felix @ 714-719-6858 or INFO@CALKNIVES.ORG for table cost and info tables are still open., please come out and support your fellow smiths
  4. it dose look long but the handle is shorter than it looks , when you hold it your finger is in a perfect spot , its just a weird piece
  5. love it!!!!! as Ironfoot was not easy to reason with , Im sure his taste in steel was much dealt with the same reguard that being said I have no doubt Dane would have been thrilled about this piece!!!!!! great work great back story!!
  6. well the Brea knife show has come and gone........................... wasnt a great show from a monatary point of view but good to say the least. We all have that box of "stuff" we dont want to toss but dont want to keep, I call Mine the "WHAT THE F##KIN' HELL WAS I THINKIN'" box! a few weeks befor the show I got antler in and saw this base and got a flash a "I know what this will work on" so I built it up tossed in on the table and it got pounced on very early in the day , the buyer left thrilled , I was just amazed. its a kind of intergregal nessmuck sorta thing made from forged O1 ,fiber spacers and a whitetail spike edge quenched in ATF , oddly showing a "temper line" I havent been here in a while , work and joint health and orders have robbed Me of pleasure time as always feel free to state your feelings
  7. Im not a bowie guy but thats working for Me your stuff is always eye candy Uncle Jimmy
  8. with help and guidence from Bill Herndon , I got this one done its a Bill Stroman style scottish dirk, in stainless damascus. I snagged a drop at the cal custom show in garden grove ,ca about 2 years ago handle is female springbok, guard is brass, bolster and end cap is wenge ladder pattern stainless damascus blade about 3 and 1/2 inches long I got lucky it feels great in the hand
  9. Ill be having a table at the Southern California Knifemakes show , the 24th of june in Brea ,Cal. I wanted to do one "standout piece" for my table do I opted to do a damascus Bodkin , in the pattern I started maked , blade is 4 metal random damascus, bronze guard throat and cap handle is sanbar stag I got lucky enuff to get to Bill Herndon shop for heat treat and etch, yea I figured 2 to 3 hours ,................... I ended up spending most of the day , I can only hope I didnt keep Bill from anything done, on the final finish I had to regrind and repolish the blade as it just showed way to much scratch marks, got it home , to asemble. got on the grinder and the grinder motor died, then I scorched the horn with rouge fob on a dremil tool end the end it looks ok.............................Ill just not forget or forgive this beast for the fight <LOL
  10. looking nice Uncle Jimmy!!!!!
  11. I was lucky enuff to have Will at the William-Llyod carving booth buy a few of My very early pieces. the following season I walked(well mkore like staggered) through the booth and didnt even reconize My own stuff!!!!!! Im stoked ,Im in a boothe with the likes of Kc Lund!!!!!
