Pandemic activities
« on: December 14, 2020, 12:24:07 PM »
I stay home a lot these days, not cause I have to, just because there is not much to do this time of year.  Make sure the water isn't frozen in the stock tanks and feed the wild birds is all that is on my list at the moment.  Too cold to work on my knife collection so what do I do?  Surf the net looking a photos or and articles about....... knives.

I check Sarge's FB page, go to 24 hour Campfire and read the knife section and sometimes there are links there that will lead you to some interesting knife makers/sellers.  There was one that led to this web site:

They make a pretty nice looking folder which is something I am looking for at the moment.

Thanks for posting that.  I have, of course, seen your knives on this forum and like your designs.  Now I have another place to visit every so often.

Stan,  I did not know you visited over at the 'fire.  What screen name do you use there?   I have been active on that forum for almost 181 years, and spend a lot of time in the knife area.

Sam I am under stantdm at the fire.  I follow the knife thread quite a bit lately and have seen a lot of your posts.  I thought michiganroadkill's post on the SV35 was interesting and like that photo of the green camel bone knife you posted.

181 years is a long time.   :-\

stan, it's not easy being old.  laughing

Tim is making me a follow up knife based on that design.  Longer handle,  longer blade,  and convex this time around.
