    Austin,

    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!

    Chris

    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:D .....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!
