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.
