Ross got ya covered, Staff.
Come on down, it should be a good time.
I love Raising Arizona!! How could anyone dislike such a great movie?lol
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.
Nemo me impune lacessit !
Knowledge, experience and treachery will defeat youth, strength and enthusiasm every time !
Wisdom is knowing what to do; Skill is knowing how to do it ; Character is what lets you actually do the job.
Iz I made Kerris GR sheath a lefty and had to scrap it after we had talked about screwing up materials at your place. I guess it happens. lol
Good work brother.
Iz, you've got a lot goin on man!! Feel free to give me short notice anytime, lookin forward to that green river!!!
Sometimes life just kicks you in the Butt, get up and kick back!!!
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).
