    I just finished listing the ones that are left. A couple people snatched up several before I could even get them listed.

    This was kind of scary for me because the wood was pretty expensive from the wholesale supplier.
    My boss was really hesitant about letting me get these.
    His reasoning was that they were too expensive for most people, it was a lot of money and a much lower profit margin.
    He felt the risk did not match the potential rewards. Looks like it will work out though.
    You should tell him that people here buy knives for 3k+....

    These are some more newcomers (scales) that I will be adding to the web store tomorrow.
    I thought a couple of them might look good on a western handle.

    I just watched the Alice in Wonderland movie with Johnny Depp.
    There was a scene where Alice is asking her father if she might be crazy.
    His answer was "yes, I am afraid so, totally bonkers.
