    2015 Blade Show preview

    Just finished putting up my 2015 Blade Show Preview page! It contains MOST of what I will have at Blade this year. I still have 4 hunters that are nearly complete, and hope to get a few EBKs done too.

    Oh Boy - I hope to see the African Blackwood Handled Bowie in person. That is one impressive knife.... as well as all the other knives also.

    Wow Ed, that's some amazing work. Some of the Damascus patterns are mind boggling to me, love that Fossil pattern. You might sell out before the show!

    Hey Ed, thanks for the preview. You're taking a great looking lineup, with some nice variety. Nice finish pic of the carved handle bowie, and you also got the double accordion sanmai to pop. Look'in good. Have a great show.

    Take care, Craig

    That's a lot of hours and a lot of awesome to show for it! The bowie and the hawk are my favorites. I hope you have a good show Ed.

    Thanks for the kind words folks! For me, the Blade Show is all about doing pieces that are "different". I always have the inward fear of how things like the "Split Personality" flippers will be accepted.....I've kinda come to the realization that some folks will like "different" and others will probably hate it...... I'm hoping to have a good show.... the old benchtop milling machine in my finish shop REALLY needs replacing.

    Ed - I should have mentioned your website showcasing your blades. It's VERY well done, well laid out. I think I remember you mentioning doing your own webpage work?

    Again, those knives displayed are just what I expect from you - GREAT!!!

    Ken: Yep, I do all my own photography and website work. Its more because I'm just plain anal then anything. When I had a "company" doing the website for me, I would have to send the pictures and verbage, then usually wait 2-3 weeks for them to update things, and they would never get it right, so I was always "chasing my tail".

    The reason for doing my own photos is much simpler.....I just couldn't afford to keep paying for pictures that I either didn't like, or that were just plain crappy. Its also a major pain to pack up knives, ship them off to a photographer, wait around for the knives to return, etc.

    Both the website building/maintaining, and the photography took some time, and a lot of learning, but neither is super difficult, and if I can learn to do, I'm sure pretty much anybody can. I don't profess to be a "professional" at either, but like most of us, I have way more time then I do money. I've actually gotten good enough at the website stuff that I have a couple of other folks who's sites I've built and maintain for them.

    Ed those are some mighty fine looking knives & hawks. I think I do see a little typo in the description of the second Split Personality Flippers. I think you have the word Slit?

    I am by no means an English major, but after all of your hard work on the knives and the pictures etc, I just wanted to let you know.

    I think those "Splits" will go over great!
