I know that I have not been around here a lot in the past few months.
My Damascus business has picked up some while the kitchen knives have been slowing down, so I have not made many extras. In addition early this summer, my wife went into the hospital for a week. That scared the hell out of me and I had a rough few weeks myself. Then I have spent the past few months catching up both with work and financially.
I am having to limit my expenses and I just cannot afford the subforum cost any more. You guys have been great, and I am not giving up on kitchen knives at all. If you are interested, my website is www.ealyknives.com
I will post available knives there, and I am always up for making a custom.
Thanks,
Del

Glad to heer from you Del and sorry to hear about your wife. I hope everything is alright now?

And great to hear you are still in the kitcheb knife business even if you have to drop the sub form.

Your random damascus is still one of my favourite patterns.. and my 270 is still my go to knife.

Hope everything goes well.

Will,
one thing I did get done this summer was to post a series of videos on making stainless Damascus on my facebook page under Delbert Ealy. I posted the first one to my Ealy Knives facebook page as well, still have to get the other up.
check them out if you have a moment.
Thanks,
Del

Thanks for all the warm wishes.
My wife is fine now. It just threw my whole world into a tailspin.
Thanks,
Del

I've enjoyed "knowing" you through the forum Del. One of my first really cool experiences here was when you made my daughter and me matching paring knives some 4 yrs ago. We're still cutting with them.

So sorry to hear about your misfortunes Del. Hoping that things turn around for you soon and strong. The parer you made for me is still my favorite. God bless.
