  1. Well other than you used my initial's!!! All funnies aside that is a great first knife sheath! You tackled many things on your first that most won't try down the road! The important thing about making a mistake, is learning from it! Also it is only an oh oh, ""if you can't make it look like an intentional"! Again great first sheath!!
  2. Kid when I saw your post on Rob's post of ......... possibly a hobbit sword. My whole day lit up. I haven't seen anything from you in a coon's age!

     

    I thought you may have passed over the great divide, I haven't seen anything from you in long time. 

    Glad to hear you are still "kickin"!!! Please don't take this the wrong way. I remember talking to you on the phone and it was like talking to an old friend!

      Kid I am sure sorry to hear about the health. Don't worry about me ever forgetting you! There is some knife makers I can look at a knife and tell right off who the maker was without ever seeing the makers mark! 

       

      It's that way with your leather work. I saw one of your holsters a while back and I had to ask the guy if "Kid Terico" made that one. He was surprised that I knew the maker!! I told him he has a distinctive style and it's not hard to know who made it if you know his work!! 

      Terry, I will say a prayer for you and yours!!

  3. Rob I am with you on this one. I have always liked your work and you have my interest on this one!!
  4. You got some serious talent!
  5. Real nice work John. You have got those puukko knives down pat!
  6. I have one I have been using and it has always run and cut true! I bought some new blades a while back. Every since I got the five blades I have had trouble when your tension the blade it immediately makes the blade turn to the left. I had become convinced that something was wrong with the say so I disassembled the thing and spend tow days working on with little success! I did discover that since the blades have run in that catawopased left hand turn it has caused premature wear on the lower blade guides. So now I need to replace them! However today I put the last one
  7. Not a lot of shop time but, boy you sure have the points for,............Honey I need a new hammer, tongs, compressor, er a ....................... Think hard Geoff you don't want to waste those points on a dud! Oh, I need a new power hammer! Isn't funny how your points take a lot longer to earn than they do to spend!!
  8. I do not do kitchen knives but if I had to say I might have to do a wooden sheath! Having said that, "every knife deserves a sheath"! I mean hell what do you do with a knife without protection for the blade. A folder is safe inside of it's handle. A hunting knife or any carry style knife is worthless without a sheath to protect the knife and its owner! I figure its a necessary evil when it comes to sheath making!! There is a good DVD by Chuck Burrows about sheath making and has a lot real good tips on how to get the professional look! https://www.amazon.com/Custom-Knife-Sheaths-
  9. Real nice. Like them both. I like the top one most! On questions of how to what is your secret to getting all the pieces in epoxy and in place before it becomes a mad dash at the end to get everything lined up before the epoxy sets! My biggest problem with these types of handles is this. In my hurry to get it all assembled I find out later when grinding down, I have a dry spot on the leather pieces.(Never tried birch before) The dry spot is usually somewhere in the tail end/pommel end of the knife! It will look like there is epoxy and I guess it just wasn't enou
  10. One only has to take a quick look at that piece to realize that it was a treasured piece! The amount of work and time it must have taken to complete is a testament to quality of the engraving! https://samlinger.natmus.dk/DO/asset/2359 nprovos I am unsure as to call you Niels or the avatar name but this piece really speaks to me! I assuming by following your work you may be about to make a copy of the piece. If that is so I would love to follow the process! If you find or have any more info on this piece I would love to see it! Was this a piece that someon
  11. Where in the _ell do you find these auctions ? I look at auctions and flea markets and such and most are selling worse junk than I already got!! Great finds!
  12. I live on a dead end street in a cul-de-sac in the county, here in Florida. One day on my way in to town. I see this bird. I think it was a male Brown Thrasher. There is a female about six feet away. The ole boy is strutting his stuff! He is dancing, spreading his wings fully and kicking up the dirt in an attempt to impress the female. I was sitting in my truck, fully involved in watching the dance he was putting on. When all of the sudden a there was a hawk came diving in at full speed. Locked his talons on the small bird and began to peck him with its beak! All I could think was
  13. Damn fine work Rob! Thanks for the WIP. Rob, damn fine work! I looked at this pic and I am thinking he said he was making a socketed spear. This look like the beginning of a tomahawk. Then it hits me. I suddenly understand how the socket is done!!!
  14. Geoof, simple is good and that one is great! I think too often makers seem to try and throw everything but the kitchen sink into a knife!! Simple is like a woman with just a hint of perfume, clothed in a way that has your imagination working overtime to fill in the rest of what your eye can't see! A simple knife hits all those marks, not to much perfume and just enough visual to make you want to pick it up and get to know it!!
  15. A buddy and I went camping/fishing one day. When we first got there, the first thirty minutes they were hitting like gang busters. After an hour of not another bite. I told him, well at least we won't be eating beans for supper! I reached down and pulled the small limb I had tethering a stringer of fish. Raised it up and son of %@$&^. Out of nine fish we had two the turtle had not eaten! Oh well so we only have to eat a few beans!! On the other hand Mr. Turtle didn't have to eat any beans!!
