    Simple little drop point hunter

    Nice knife, Wallace. I've made about 50 that are very similar in the blade - a little less bulky in the handle. They make great little utility knives. I use O1 with a variety of handle materials - a lot of maple - but usually don't do bolsters. I can turn 'em out in bunches and pretty much...

    Marks and stencils, help!

    Hi Liam, I used to do a little graphic designing in a prior life, so I took the liberty of redrawing your logo thoughts in a vector format, which is what your stencil maker will want. I didn't have the font you used, but that is easily changeable. I'd be happy to work with you to tweak it...

    Official Summer 2013 KnifeDogs Knife in the Hat Thread

    Got my knife from DonL last night... and its BEAUTIFUL!!!. I use a lot of O1 and maple, but this is the nicest combination of those materials I've seen in a long time. It has a great feel in my hand and I suspect it will become my constant field companion. Thanks Don. Dick

    Hey Craig, Your knife's in the mail - they tell me you should expect it on Saturday. I hope this is something you like. I'm not sure I'm happy with the handle so if you need to modify it to fit your hand, it won't hurt my feelings. I think you'll like the way O1 performs. I've used it...

    Laugh if you will...

    Thanks, Liam. I agree. At the end of the day, even fantasy should be functional. Dick

    Laugh if you will...

    Thank you gentlemen. I enjoy making knives that look and feel every day useful, but its also necessary to push the limits occasionally. After grinding (on my Sear's 2 x 42) I normalized once then soaked at 1500 for 10 minutes and then did a vertical quenched in peanut oil. Tempered at 500 for...

    Stolen Knives

    Through the efforts of two honest people, I have my knives back. Thank you Tom and Sandra!! After becoming suspicious of a private sale, they took the time and interest to track me down via the internet and my knife dog post, and now I'm only missing a hunting bag and a couple of tools. The...

    Stolen Knives

    I don't have any knives for sale on the internet, so if anyone spots one with this maker's mark, I'd appreciate a heads up. I lost 20 - mostly bowies and fighters from my shop last night. Thanks, Dick

    Wearing a knife with braces.

    I use a metal belt clip from Tandy on my small EDC. It does a good job holding onto the top of my jeans, but it will tear up the fabric over a period of time. Dick
