    As 2016 winds down to a close, I cannot say thank you enough to everyone who has made this year in the shop a great one. To everyone who has bought a knife, took a class or just followed along, THANKS for your continued support. I accomplished quite a bit this past year. Even with a few bumps in the round along the way, I still managed to grow considerably.

    Here is a look at where 2016 is ending and I'll pick up for 2017!

    A pair of prototype "Finger Hole Cleavers" are in process. These are taking way longer than I originally intended, but it has been a new model filled with little things that need more thought and fine tuning. I'll decide when these are done if they become a regular offering down the road.

    6pc. hand tool sets continue to get forged and go out to customers all over the country.

    Modification of a B.T.K. blank I had on the bench and decided to chop and grind on it a bit more for a pronounced poon at the tip.

    Deer season 2016 wasn't a waste, had a great time at deer camp and managed to fill the freezer a bit.

    Coke, the superior forging fuel.

    Getting closer with these. I had to redo the scales a few times to get the shape down pat. Those holes present a mess of problems when sanding.

    This one will be hard to lose in the woods, and keep clean.

    A speical project S.B.K. that will get finished in Cerakote by my friend at Drake Firearms, check him out if you're in the upstate of SC and need a deal on a gun or firearms finishing.

    As the year ends I've got a few knives up and available for immediate purchase on the store. I will split my work load for 2017 and keep a few extra knives online, while I work on custom orders. Due to the increase in classes and other projects, leads times on custom knives for 2017 will be around 3-5 weeks from ordering for completion.

    Thanks everyone again a great 2016 and I hope you continue to follow along as I keep traveling along on this adventure.
