    @Phantom X I agree. I got to handle a box full of his Knives. Both his Knives and his sheaths are first rate. I ended up walking away with one and I'm thoroughly impressed with it.
    He's a lot of fun to talk and trade with also.

    That one isn't a regular model. The first one I made as a prototype to test out and Tennessee talked me out of it at a meet, then later had me make him another. As to the specs I'll have to look up the pattern I made for his and check it since it's been awhile since I made that one.
    Thanks,

    Thank You M. Hatfield.

    If you were ever able to meet Joe, @hamanky here on the forum, who makes these knives, it would help you to understand why I appreciate them so much. Joe is a true artist with his knives and sheaths, and an all around great craftsman. He is also one of the nicest men you will meet. His grind lines and scales are exceptional and his heat treat is dead on. these knives will rarely dull, only occasionally needing lapping.
    Here are all of mine so far, until the next meetup.

    Well said bro, Joe is exceptional both as a craftsman and a person!!!

    This may help define what kind of person Joe is. All my meetups are FREE and always will be although folks do make donations to help with supplies. When I was planning the last meet Joe contacted me and wanted to know if it was OK with me if he auctioned off one of his beautiful knives to help fund he meet.
    Needless to say I was totally blown away!!!

    Thanks guys! I appreciate the kind words, the friends I've made through making knives and the BCUSA meets I've been able to attend are amazing!
    Unfortunately lately I haven't been able to get much time in the shop because I'm the process of moving. The good thing is the new place has land, a better house, and a bigger better shop than I had before! It's a place my wife and I have wanted for about 5 years and were finally able to afford.
    As soon as I get everything squared away and the shop reworked for 220 vac though I have a few new designs in the works!
    Thanks again,
    Joe Hay

    Of course it hasn't been all work and no play though. My youngest said she wanted a "fort" in the woods at the new house to call her own so we've been working on that in the evenings.
    Thanks
