    I have made neck knives with a similar blade profile, with a slightly different handle. I have played with kydex a bit, but was never very happy with it. Maybe I'l have to reexamine that material.
    Thanks,

    For the record, I'd be more than willing to buy a neck knife without a sheath.

    These knives look pretty sweet and both the buckeye and red elm look like they're ready to be made into killer handles! If you do another pre-buy like this at the end of the year/start of next I'd be very interested! (Gotta be a bit thriftier for a while in between though... )

    A little more progress, 4 with handles glueing up. the rest of the blades are finished up to the point of hand sanding. I'll be glueing another batch tomorrow. These will get finished tomorrow and will be ready for shipping either tomorrow or saturday. I'll be sending pms out tonight. Speaking of which there are a few of you that requested a place and havn't sent a deposit or choice for a handle. You will be getting pm's tonight as well. I have a few people that have requested these after it filled up. If I don't hear from you proptly, you might lose your place.
    More pics later.
    Thanks,
    Del

    Sure,
    yours is one of those pictured.
    I havn't done knives this small for awhile and I really want to say thanks to all who will be getting one of these. I finished a gyuto last week and they are always fun, but they are a ton of work. These little guys were a real blast. I always hand sand to finish the blades and handles, and hand sanding a guyto takes awile. These guys on the other hand go pretty quick, and I really feel like I am accomplishing something in a day working on these. I love making all sorts of knives, and I do like the challenge of the larger knives, but sometimes you want something thats quick and easy. Like making a grilled cheese versus filet minion. I will be doing more of these, probably even a few in damascus, in the near future.
    Thanks,
    Del

    Those look great Del, I know what you mean, sometimes I try and knock off as many little jobs as I can at the start of the day so I feel I'm making headway. Looking forward to seeing more WIP pictures, thanks alot.

    Yes, the vultures are circling and waiting for the uncommitted to falter!
