I’m back from my Daughter’s wedding/vacation. We had a blast! Now back to the every day chores like picking up the garbage from my nightly visitors. I do love seeing them but man do they make a mess.

Back to daggers in the morning!

On the way to Italy! If the stars align as expected, one of these will be auctioned at Blade Show.

Reate nailed the bevels/swedge on the Mini Chicane. These will be awesome! The Derecho will be here before these. Due to ship to me the end of April beginning of may.

I’ve been making knives for 13 or so years now. Until this January, i have not once been contacted about removing clips. Since January, i’ve been asked at least a dozen times about shorter screws so people can remove the clips. Is this a new trend? Are people wanting this?

The Derecho is due to ship to me around the end of April. It will be here before you know it. 
For those that didn’t get in on this pre order. There will be a small amount at dealers. From the dealers you will be able to get either of the aspirated versions, a grey/carbon fiber, blacked out/Carbon fiber, grey/ blue g10 or a grey/olive g10

Mini Chicanes aren’t due until the end of May.

I am now knee deep in the Arch Nemesis batch. Here is a shot of the clip progress. These are a big pain in the ass to make as there isn’t much to hold them by when doing the show surface.
The first 10 Arch Nemesis are going to Blade Show, anything I make after that will be up for grabs as they get done.

A favorite custom Chicane in anticipation of the upcoming Mini production version.

Just placed my order for the Mini Chicane. This will be a little different from what you have grown to expect from my past runs.
I’m changing the way im offering my production knives. They will be available for purchase through my website. I’m not going to be doing pre orders for them. I will be putting them up once I get them in hand. Because of this, there will only be a fraction made compared to what was made in the past. Like 10%. There will also be less options than before. If they go fast, and the interest is there, then they can be revisited with different options at another date. If they are slow going, they can be shelved and new designs could make their way out. 

This will make it harder to get one, and harder to get the one you really want but it will help keep the value up. Especially with the limited edition versions. I only ordered 10. Thats far off of the typical 100-300 of the i can normally sell. 

I also have the prototype Field Grade Evo being made as wee speak. They will be offered the same way. I’m hoping they do well as a entry level version of my knives. We will see. 

Thoughts?
