    Cool Great News

    I have made some substantial progress in handle making (after of a string of failure, partly by using horn), so I am finally going to start sending knives out!

    Also, for those folks who have purchased practice knives from me (yet haven't received yet), I will offer custom handles if you like, D or octagonal. I won't use horn though, but the new design with a metal tip (over blackwood ferrule) is an option for octagonal or D.

    Also, Western handles are in a pipeline. I am going to though all energy now to get the knives out, but I will continue working on a first prototype Western.

    Anyway, just wanted to thank you guys for your patience. This is a huge breakthrough for me, as handles is what kept me back lately.

    Thanks guys, and I repeat, I appreciate your patience. I now have reasons to believe that I can really achieve efficiency I was looking for in handle making. These are still shaped by hand, but the changes I made lately will allow me to reduce (and hopefully completely avoid) failures.

    They will have clean installation (tang hole will conform to tang), machi will sit squarely against handle and so forth.

    I am working on a first batch, will glue them up tomorrow and shape over the weekend. Have like 20+ knives waiting for handles, but this firts batch is only 5. So pics are very, very soon.
