Link to old album.
One of the pictures to perhaps tease your interest.

BTW: Thanks Tracy for allowing us old collectors hang around and now have a forum.

Thank You,
I have only recently decided on a true direction in collecting rather than just accumulation which I did for years (40+).

That direction will be exposed when I make my first knife, a folder in the pattern I have chosen to concentrate on.

I do have a great one from you, it just will not stand up on the shelves and will not show if laid down. :eek:

It was great meeting you and glad to know you are over here. 2thumbs

Dang it, I have been here a month longer and you are within 2 posts of me.:sleeping dog:

Do I get a prize if I have more than you? I was thinking your new Hampton ivory trapper...:D

About as much chance of that as Tony Bose coming to my shop and teaching me all he knows and taking as long as it takes. But that is essentially what he has done for Kerry and it shows, Kerry has only made 30 to 40 knives and I can not believe the fit and finish of his work. Tony has done well with him. Plus it does not hurt that Kerry is naturally talented and has a true gift from the Lord. It shows.

I figured it was worth a shot.;)

I've got about a year and a half or so to go before my name comes up on Kerry's list. Hopefully he will still be able to get that amazing ivory then.

I might can help with that, happen to know someone with a room full. He inherited it from a knife maker friend, I sent 6 sets to Kerry and 6 to Bret Dowell. Both used it well. But my favors could be running out with the guy.

I might actually take you up on that. Bret is going to be making me a swayback jack sometime in the next month or two and I would love to have some of that creamy ivory for the scales.
