    Alrighty then. I've screwed a few thing up lately....royally.
    One screw up was the before mentioned soldier river that I cut out of the wrong stock. Not a huge deal but still time consuming.
    The big screw up though was on lmt66's knife. I messed up the plunge line big time on his oversized soldier river. It was so uneven a blind man could have seen it....but I didn't. I sent it out without ever seeing it and he emailed me pics of how bad it was. He's a gentleman and just pointed it out so I'd know I actually did it and he said he didn't want a replacement, it wasn't a deal breaker for him.
    I couldn't let him pay for something that sub par so Saturday I started a replacement for him. And not wanting to just heat treat one knife I went ahead and cut out a Burris fork to heat treat with it. I would have gone ahead and made the next knife on the list but it was to short notice to spring it on the customer.
    So this batch has grown by two more knives.


    In progress pics








    Hopefully I'll be done by Monday and then on to sheaths.

    Iz, remember the old saying- "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get !"



    It will all come together, so take a moment to relax, regroup, and rethink.

    Good work brother.
    I've dabbled in to leather several times and never stick with it. I bought the wrong leather but thought I'd go ahead and do a trial run for a sheath today. I got it started and thought "this isn't going too bad" and when I folded it over after sewing the belt loop I realized I had made it a lefty. Oh and it also wouldn't sheath a toothpick with much room left over As Gordon Ramsey says "In the bin!". Hey at least I tried. You do great work bro, I need to get some pointers.

    Iz, it's much easier to see mistakes in someone else's work. I draw hundreds of minute details every day at work and for the most part catch mistakes, but give me someone else's work and I can find issues lickity split. Part of it brother.

    I have said it 100 times, but you are of a small breed of true craftsman Iz Turley.

    They look great Iz! We all end up making mistakes--the important thing to remember is to take deep breath and know that nothing is insurmountable (neither is it the end of the world).
