Knife Makers Associations

Steven Janik

Ok guys and gals. I'm a newbie to this and feel compelled to join a (or many) associations. With what you know now, where would you start? I'm currently buying blades online and making my own modifications with tang shapes etc, then use whatever I can find for scales. I've had good luck selling these pieces online (around $300.00 avg), but I've got a ways to go. I'm a hunter and love the drop point and have created "the mosaic handle bolt" as pictured below. Any comments or opinions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

It kinda depends on what you want outta your member ship. There are dozens of choices out there!

Maybe a local group would be the place to start....

Those mosaic bolts look pretty cool! :)
