I just finished up the last two I'll have time to work on before I leave for Boise. Both are of the bowie size. The S guard bowie has a W-2 blade that is just under 9", iron fittings with a stellar sea cow rib bone. Overall its 14". The other knife has a forge finished 1959 Nash Metro blade that is just over 9". Iron fittings and a curly maple handle. Overall its 15". Both have two ply leather sheaths.

LOVE that forge finish! You've been busy, Ray. I've been lazy.... :/ Hope the show goes really well for you! Let me know how it goes. Maybe by the time you get back, I'll be able to use my arm again and actually finish a knife finally.... This whole shoulder surgery is the pits.

I'll second Peter's comment on that forge finish! Love it. You've been busy, and it looks good. Good luck at the show! I hope you bring home awards and bundles of currency. Have fun too. :)

Sounds like a downer to me. Too bad. Seems like people would get smart one of these days and realize you make the best knives in the world and start buying them! Just more proof that people are crazy....

Peter, Its more of an economy issue than anything else. I was not the only one with little or no sales.
