I wanted to start this thread by saying thanks to Mr. Ken Hurst.
He is a true southern gentleman and interesting to talk to.
I posted this knife that I am working on a couple of weeks ago.

I think it looks great, but then again I like anything and everything that he does. Can't wait to see the finished product. You have a great start.

Hey Greg, that's a nice knife you made. Mr Hurst is doing a fine job on engraving, beautiful work indeed. One of these days maybe I'll go to Oklahoma to visit you, God BLess. Rey in Texas

Absolutely stunning work! Maybe someday I will be able to make a knife as nice so that it would warrant some of his amazing touch. Great job to both of you.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all for their kind words. I did work hard at trying to design something special for Mr. Greg's client. If anyone is interested in discussing an engraving project for themselves, I'd be happy to talk to them about it. I'm almost always in the shop seven days a week, 10-12-14 hours a day & have a phone right beside me. Thanks again, Ken 910-221-5288

I am waiting on the handle to come back from Mr. Hurst.
Considering the recent lose of his wife my stuff is probably the last thing on his mind (as it should be). I talked to him on Saturday and he said it would be shipped that day.
Thanks for your interest.

Hey guys,

I Just got my handle back from Mr. Hurst.
I am stunned, this is absolutely beautiful.
These are pics of the knife loosely fitted together, I still have to blue the handle then grey the scroll work.
Once again, Thanks Mr. Hurst. I have enjoyed working with you and look forward to our next project.
