  1. About a quarter of the tables were empty. Some because of covid, some for other reasons.
  2. Masks were required but not worn. Crowd size was minimal.
  3. After discussing it with a long time ABS Master I will be offering advanced classes where the student can pick the subject covered. If there is some part of your knifemaking skills that my 25 years of experience can help with then let me know. These will be one-on-one classes held at my home shop in Branson, MO and can be from 3 to 5 days in length.
  4. You may see a little Persian or even Egyptian influence in the blade profile. The hilt is all me. The steel is my latest cannister mosaic (1080 & 15N20). The handle is blackwood with ivory & 416 fittings. The overlay on the ivory butt cap is fine silver.
  5. Very nice. Congrats. The dagger shows a hamon. What is the steel and is the hamon planned? I use a lot of W series and have never h/t'ed one without a hamon forming.
  6. Yes. 416. Pommel is drilled & tapped.
  7. This is the first mono-steel Bowie that I've made in a while: Blade: W1 Handle: Stabilizing giraffe bone Fittings: 416

(Exotic materials like silver, ivory etc extra) To reserve a date in Jan/Feb/March requires a $100 nonrefundable deposit Contact: garymulkey114@gmail.com
  10. Those of you that know me, know that I love making the historical style of knife which usually means large. Recently however I accepted a commission to design & build a knife for a customer who has a collection of knives that are <5" OAL. For this I decided on a boot knife of random pattern damascus with a full tang which I left proud for some rope roll filework. The scales are blackwood with 416 bolsters. Not my typical post but I occasionally enjoy making something different. Let me know what you think.
  11. That's done in a cannister.
  12. It's been a while since I've posted anything so I thought that I'd show you one that I just finished for the Arkansas Show: The blade is a two pattern mosaic of 1080-15N20 & 1084 powder. The guard is a wheat twist made from four 1/4" round rods (hot blued). The handle is mastodon bark with 416 & damascus spacers.
  13. This one needs another 3-4 coats of finish on the wlnut scales and it will be ready to sharpen:
