    Arkansas Custom Knife Show 2011 WIP

    I am in the middle of getting ready for the Arkansas Custom Knife Show, which is Feb. 12-13, and I figured you guys might want to see what is going on. Today I am going to be working on getting several knives and handles ready for glue up.

    Here are a couple of fun ones. The larger of the two is a Camp Cutlass and I think it will be getting some margarita G-11 scales and the small one a Pocket Cutlass will likely be getting Olive Drab G-10 scales.






    This is one that I worked on in Washington AR. I have a lot left to do with this one. It has a 9 or 10 inch forged blade and is maybe 15 or 16 inches overall, so it is a respectably sized bowie. Hopefully it will get done and get sold at the show. (Otherwise it is mine!)

    Allen,
    I expected to see a stack of knives floor to ceiling.
    If I remember correctly you sold every knife you had but one and didnít it windup on some calendar somewhere or something I kick myself for not buying it, but I never would have used it.

    Bring some down next week for a little preview.

    I did do pretty well at the show last year. Hopefully this years show will go good as well. It will at least be fun as I love the location and the people. Plus, my wife will be coming with me. Right now I think I may have 8 or 9 knives available. Oh, and I'll try to bring something to the next meeting.

    Do I see a bit of design influence from one of your teachers in that bowie? I believe that is my favorite of all of your work I've seen thus far Allen, but they all look great. Look forward to seeing them completed.

    I have some passes to the show. So, if anyone is in need of a couple of passes just let me know.

    Here is one for the show. It is one of my survival tin knives with red carbon fiber scales.

    That's pretty sharp... And I mean that in all applicable ways...

    Here is the bowie that I am working on for the show. I am not certain if it will make the deadline or not. Right now the handle is just about shaped and I have been experimenting with handle finishes on scrap pieces. I may even do some silver wire inlay on this one as well.

    I know I told you this before Allen, but I really like this one. It has great lines and is a very clean and classic design.
