    Well got this done today..Would have got it all heat treated but Phillip had to spend some time in the ER(very bad Gout attack in the knee, bad swelling) Anyway a few knives in O1. A Kephart, a Nessmuk and a thin bladed small game/Fish style knife. A couple forged knives. A striker knife and a bigger knife of the same design and some strikers..I would have heat treated the O1 blades tonight but at a 20 minute soak each and two two hour tempering cycles I just didnt have time..Oh well, we'll get it tomorrow evening.

    Lisa,
    Your longer-than-4 1/8" handles are the cat's meow! Keep 'me coming!
    Love your renditions of tried and true designs.

    Best regards,

    Amen, I REALLY love the two striker knives especially the little guy the perfect shape I envisioned in a combo knife/striker. How much for the little guy? :4:

    Lisa,
    It appears you need to start taking orders for the knife w/striker because I want one too depending on blade length of knife.

    That wouldn't happen to be my C striker, would it?

    You know Lisa; if you keep making stuff, I am afraid I am just going to have to continue to send you money... :4:

    Wow. I'd REALLY REALLY like one of those larger striker knives. Is that one for sale? Any plans to make more, even slightly larger than that?

    Really hope Phillip is doing well and the swelling passes quickly. Nothing aches like a knee. All the best.

    I like the striker knife but my brain said wait... Could you make one with a Nessmuk style blade on the striker knife???
    Mostly cause I want a Nessmuk and the striker knife is cool...

    And I feel for Phillip - Got the gout working on my toe for the last week...
