    Don't have any on my puter at work - may have some at home. Could always take some, I suppose ... if I remember.



    Just stapled a note to remind me when I get home.

    Here is some of his work from a year or two ago.

    He blacksmiths at the John Deere historic site 2 - 4 times a week and will be going to an advanced blacksmith class later this year.

    I think Bladesmith does too, but he has not been making any due to health issues.

    mtman, check out the old threads in the barter board. I believe they had some pics of what he makes in there. Maybe an email addy too.

    My uncle makes beautiful knives to order, he's a retired dentist in El Paso Texas. Making knives has been his hobby for years. If you're interested, send me a PM and I'll tell you how to contact him.

    If you want a nice knife or and not a store bought one everyone else has I would try K.B.A. knives , the guys name is Karl Anderson, he makes custom knives and is one of the best newer knife makers in the country, You do pay more for it but the quality speaks for itself, he has a website kbaknives.com with some of his knives pictured and for sale, I have a couple of his knives and they are exceptional.
