Howdy folks,
I'm Phil Tham from central Texas. Made knives part time from 2002 to 2005. Had a change in jobs and relocation that took me away from the sport for awhile. Anyhow, I'm now retired from the traditional job and back at knife making again. Happy to have found this forum...looks like a fun place.

Awesome work Paps! I especially like that third one, with the concho in the handle.... Nice TX theme.

Great filework too.

Thanks HHH...the scales on that first folder are the result of a little experimenting I was doing. It's a pinecone core cast in acrylic resin.

Paps, welcome to the Dawg Pound! Thanks for posting the photos, nice clean and beautiful workmanship. The knives posted are some of the most functional designs with striking beauty as well.

Welcome fellow Texan. I wish I was closer to Bryan, I would love to learn from you. Great looking knives. Would you drink a cup of coffee w/a Texan and gimme some advice on knifemaking if I ever got close to Bryan?

Welcome to the Pack! I really like your pine cone experiment. Certainly caught my eye. So did your filework. Nice looking knives. Knifedogs are the Best, a very addicting and informative group like you never met.
 
Your knives look awesome. I'm just getting started with this obsession! I live just up the road in the "big" city of Riesel. Thanks for the pictures.
