I hope to see you at the Blade Show in Atlanta!

I won't be exhibiting this year, but I will be visiting friends, family, suppliers and manufacturers. I'll have a couple new knives to show off, but I'll just be a spectator and an attendee. What a liberating experience that will be.

I will finally get to look at everything that I want and talk to every one that I wish to for the first time in about 14 years. I am really excited about that!

I sure would like to find one of these at the show. They are made by Antonini in Italy. Carbon steel blades, bolsters and frames are iron for strength and the handles are bubbinga. Antonini will be there this year.

If you are going, travel safely and please support the knifemaking community. Business has been down since the terrorist attack of 2001 for all but the upper echelon of makers. Help keep the craft alive with your support.

J & S Lanyards & Skulls

I received an excellent lanyard today from J&S Lanyards and Skulls very much like this one. The workmanship is excellent and the service is very fast. Jeff's prices are reasonable. I recommend him very highly. These lanyards are great accessories for knives, keychains and the smaller ones make excellent zipper-pulls. And the ones that have glow-in-the dark components are great for string pull light fixtures! You can check out Jeff's offerings at his ebay store or his FB page. I bet you'll enjoy looking around.

Some more of Jeff's work

Spring 2014

We'll be back in the shop soon. The drive to create and to use the gifts and talents that Our Father blessed me with is strong. Recently the Lord helped my brother-in-law, my nephew and I build two wheelchair ramps for my mother-in-law. She broke her leg at her hip and destroyed her knee. But the Lord is always with us.

I hope you've been enjoying my contributions to the writing team of Jim Weiss and Mickey Davis as seen in KNIVES ILLUSTRATED magazine. I've had a lot of fun assisting them and Mark Prince in their work writing about some of the most exciting knives and knife related products that can be found on the market today.

So watch out for some new knives. Thanks for your interest!
