    I'd like to nominate Sleestack for new builder. Sorry, don't know his real name, just his forum handle. He posted this knife as his first knife and I was very impressed.

    I nominate Ty Adams. He has come a long way in a very short time and turning out some really nice knives:

    I'd like to nominate Daniel Rohde. I met Daniel last August at the Knifedog Hammer-in. I've seen his work develop over the last couple of years, and considering he is 18 years old, I think he is one to keep an eye on. He is making some very fine knives.

    Wow this was a tough one to pick who to vote for

    Tell you what guys, this is tough. But I'm gonna second that vote Daniel Rohde, he's really got some clean lines and very nice choices of materials that compliment each other. I've been noticing his work a lot lately and really like it.

    I really think Ty Adams deserves this one this year. I'm not sure I even should be in the running for this anymore.

    Daniel, you are wrong about that. You are doing some great work, and a lot of people are taking notice.

    Ty Adams KNIFE MAKER

    Well thanks Daniel. But you meet all the criteria, and are doing some amazing work.

    Actually I need to apologize for an oversight. Daniel won best new builder last year. We only want someone to win best new builder once. So again I'm sorry for not catching and correcting this earlier

    Thanks Brad! That's what I thought/ was trying to say. I hope Ty gets it this year! It would be well deserved.
