Thanks Trav!!! Man, I cant believe the blanks have not shown up yet........ Guess its good I stay busy in between having them cut....lol
Looking good bro looks like you have been busy.
LOL.....Man, thanks for your patience brother. I have to stay ahead of the game while waiting for blanks to show up. I am going to start ordering 20-30 of 2 different designs at a time from now on. David is the man and got them out quickly. Now its just waiting on the USPS to get there butts in gear.
I don't know where you get your stuff, but there is a knife making suppliers in Davis, OK. Here is their link http://www.jantzsupply.com/
I order most of my materials etc through Tracy @ USAKnifeMakers.com I have browsed Jantz quite a few times. Just have not ordered from them yet. I get all my steel from McMasterCarr.com and Aldo Bruno AKA The New Jersey Steel Baron. I hope you didnt misunderstand me saying I am waiting for blanks as in factory made blanks. These are blanks of the first knife I completed for a buddy of mine. I had a lot of interest in that design so I sent over the design to David @ Great Lakes Water-Jet to cut out a few for me. Saves time!!!!
Thanks for the reply!
Just finished up two more Entry Tools.
The brown/black/tan variant is going to one of our troops. He will be taking it with him back to the sand box in October. I am working on a K-Bit as a gift to take with him as well.
The handle material on his is Todds Random Urban Desert micarta. I still have to oil them down a bit. I am still learning, but seem to get a little better with every shot. My biggest problem is my grinder stalling out half way through each pass...VERY frustrating learning curve. But, I have a new grinder coming soon, Thanks, Tracy2thumbs .....also having a friend of the family to come wire me up with 230V. VFD here I come!! I cant wait.
Thanks for looking guys...still a rookie...but still learning!
Thank you. Jeff! As long as they keep getting better I am ok with that...LOL
Looking good Mr. Martin!
