I love lacewood and quilted maple

Recommended Posts

Here are the two knives I just finished. They are better in your hand than they look in pictures.

Coastie,

WOW! I don't even come close to needing another knife but those are absolutely BEAUTIFUL.

 

I think I like the maple a little better but I wouldn't throw either of them out of the scabbard! Excellent job. If you ever decide to make one for money ... let me know how much.

Cap’n, Thankls Cap'n! The lacewood scales dye & stabilize nicely but the quilted maple is (was) my favorite knife. It is going to a new home on Friday. It wasn’t sold. It was bartered away. I somehow feel better that it was bartered. I like bartering with the good folks here. I hope the end user likes it as much as I do! The lacewood knife sold within two days of being made. I don’t think I advertised the maple one as ‘for sale’ until someone here asked to see my other knives. I like the guy so I included the maple. Stupid move for me… awesome move for him!

 

Thanks Nana, I’m getting better. I am a little embarrassed at what I sold eight months ago but the knives cost less back then.

 

To all, remember, although I have not published the prices yet, Christmas pricing for members is in affect. Ask for pricing if you’re interested. I won’t advertise Christmas prices until next week… but the prices are pretty darn good.

Lee, I stabilized the wood and sealed it with sealer and Tru-Oil so there shouldn’t be any place for the blood to fill in. But I cannot say for sure. The blood should be wiped off when done using it but it should be fine.

 

A few friends have used them to gut and process deer and thus far, no complaints. And one of those was a special build for a friend that has no arms and uses hooks. I made the knife to fit his hooks so there are a lot of tight edges and so far, so good.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
