    I've been working on two fairly major projects for the last four or five months for Blade Tx in February. Finally done! The first one is the "Border Bowie Multi bar Damascus with explosion on the top bar and twisted W’s on the bottom bar, with a bar down the middle that contains steel from the...

    The Fred Bear Project

    My "big" piece for Blade this year is a Fred Bear themed bowie knife. I included vintage Bear Razorhead broadheads in the damascus, which you can see as the dark lines on the sides of the "arrow" that I put down the middle of the blade. I wrapped the arrow billet in bars of twist 1084/15n20...

    Battleship Texas Bowie

    Provenance is always interesting. For the wood, I do have a COA as it was purchased on the secondary market. The ship steel was given to me by a guy who got it from a guy who didn't have permission to give it away. Battleship folks are really picky about who gets their stuff in the first...

    I've made about 100 of this hunter over the years, and now I've contracted with White River to make some for me. CPM S35VN and various synthetics. Should have a good variety, plus a bunch in orange/black and blue/black suretouch. Knife is 7 3/4 with a 3 1/4" blade. Comes with a right hand...

    First production project

    They'll end up with alot more than 120 before we are done with this project, I bet. Kind of trying to follow the data and see how sales go, then make a quantity decision for a run available for the fall hunting season.

    First production project

    Five months ago they said they were something like 15K knives behind due to covid shutdowns, but they still took my project. Another well known company was 30K knives behind and wasn't interested at all.

    First production project

    IDK that it was excess capacity really. They did 120 of them for me, and lead time was roughly 5 months. I guess that's a small project, but it's huge for me!

    First production project

    As knifemakers y'all appreciate the tension between making what sells and making what you want. You may also be familiar with not having the time to make as many knives as your customers would buy. To get around those issues, I contracted with White River Knife and Tool out of Michigan to have...
