    Well guys it looks like it gonna have to close the wait list. I and my wife split up a few weeks ago an since then I've had almost no time in the shop at all because my free time is being spent with my 1 year old son. I regret saying that unfortunately I'm going to have to close the list and call it quits for a while once the current On Deck list is completed, I just simply don't have the time to work right now. I'm very sorry guys, it really pains me to have to do this.

    Those of you on the wait list who have paid a deposit will get it refunded soon.


    Very sorry guys,
    Evan S.

    Thanks a ton guys, I really appreciate it. I don't plan on mothballing the shop forever, just a break for a while. How long that will be, I'm not sure. I might still do some knives occasionally under hobbyist licensing if time frees up.

    Thanks a ton to everyone for their support and understanding. My sincerest apologies to those on the list who won't be getting a knife, it kills me that I have to step down right now.

    There are very few things more important than knives, but family, especially your kids, are definitely one of them. Glad to see you have your priorities straight.

    Your kid is your number one priority. There is no greater satisfaction in life than watching your kid grow up and go out in to the world as a strong, motivated and responsible adult. You only get one chance.... priorities man. You got em in the right place. Carry on!

    Chin up Bro and look after that boy. Went through the same thing a couple years back. The moment we decided to go our separate ways I immediately shifted all my focus to my son. Luckily my wife and I were able (with the help of a therapist) work out our differences but the whole thing made me a better father and I think a better man. Im a PM away if you'd like to chat.

    No worries on the wait list, brother. We are all aware of what's important in life.
    Take care of you and yours, and if any of us can be of help to you don't hesitate to shout.

    While this is a bummer for the knife community, it's a win for you and your son. I, myself am a single parent and understand your dilemma. You're absolutely making the right choice and I applaud you for it. If you ever need and ear, or a Kestrel on loan, just PM me and I'll send you my number. :p I wish you nothing but the best!

    Evan, no matter how sad I am to hear this, I support you fully, and also look forward to when you start up again if you do. I know that designs will still be flowing in your mind, and you make one HELL of a knife that I am so very very VERY proud to own.

    I hope you stay active here still as much as you can! I always look forward to seeing your trip reports and also your factual arguing with trolls that try to say wrought iron and copper knives are best evar! Lol.

    Thanks for everything you have done for us all here and also for myself as well, I appreciate(d) it all so much!

    If you want to make a fellow happy, please keep the deposit and take that little man to the movies or out to dinner, my treat and pleasure. Enjoy the time with him, there is no getting it back once it's gone. Make memories now, wood and steel will still be here once he discovers girls...:eek:

    You're too kind my friend, thank you!
    I really hope I can get back into doing knives again later on down the road. Making you all knives has been awesome and my only regret is that I couldn't get a knife into everyone's hands. I'm hoping that once life settles into a predictable rhythm I'll be able to at least resume knifemaking on a hobbyist level. (Fingers crossed)
