I like thick handles....on more than knives too!!
I’m with ya.
Hows things going at the PK factory
I bet he is super busy.
I am waiting on a re-handle. What are you waiting on?
A handle/sheath on a PK pitbull blank
I think I am way behind everyone else but the Michigan Bushcraft yearly get together is next month.
I bet it will be worth the wait.
Why has it been so quiet in here?
I blame the Blade Show Scramble. A time when every knife maker on Earth has a bit tougher of a time getting work done.
Sorry guys, but I'm still alive and relatively unharmed.....
I feel like this month has been a giant f'ing waste. On the 9th mu mother in law has a total hip replacement and her care has taken a toll on the household. Every damn minute I have had to myself has been spent doing auto repairs, yard work or the occasional small project to make it easier for her to get around in the house or in and out of bed.
Jana is finally on the mend though, shes able to walk again short distances without a cane and out and about with her cane. She cam drive herself around starting today and shouldn't be as needy so it's back to work for me! Thank god cause the time spent on the grinder and making sheaths n such is what I do to keep what little sanity I have left.
So to all you patient awesome customers, bear with me a little longer casue spring is here and that means fair weather and late nights for this guy!!!
Oh and yesterday me a Mrs. PK celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary!
Congratulations, happy anniversary!
Glad to hear from ya, Chris! Happy anniversary
I did get a little bit to do a sheath done for that Beck clone....
I also started some finish work on some blanks that are coming up for orders but dont have any pics of those on me at the moment.
There's 5 or 8 or more, lol, handle jobs or order blanks ready to handle that I'm starting on tomorrow morning before work, most already have the scales rough cut and ready to glue once I restock on some tube and pin material at ace in the A.M.
These include ones for @M.Hatfield, @Teeps, @CPRPE, @Kimber22 and @Wandy to name a few plus a couple more.
Glad to hear that things are running smoother... I was really beginning to worry that something bad was afoot. Take your time...
My thought exactly.
And No, that's not all of what I am currently working on.....
2 in glue tonight, 2 more before work tomorrow and 2 after work too. 6 to shape Tuesday morning before work. Probably 6 or 7 more just about ready to glue up too.
The Swiss ain't got Jack on this American's work
Little regrind work for me member here.... it was in need of it for sure!
That belongs in a museum!
I wish I wasn't lactose intolerant.
That cheese looks yummy!
Before work, work!
That Blue micarta looks great! Nice handle work.
Thanks! It's not neat done yet. I will hand sand it to 1200 or 2000 then buff it then it will be available for sale.
Blue, red, or orange.... when is Chris going to just get some rainbow micarta I wonder?
You should check out the Mexican fiesta pattern that g.i_hansenandsons has for sale lol
That is actually what got me thinking. Saw it come up in my Instagram feed.
If I did that in my area I'd have half of the neighborhood trying to buy it.....
Lol yeah you would!!
I moved to the south side of OKC, right int the middle of Moore/ s. OKC so .....
But then I pulled the tape and my heart sunk, looks like this scandi will become a scandivex
Wow that orange one is awesome.
$180 worth awesome 3V
Your work is awesome as always
Lighting sucks but you get the idea lol
Are you making these blue ones on purpose just to drive me nuts? You’re like a dealer, you know...
So when is it going up???
Lol maybe, and how soon do ya wanna buy it
Remember that flooding garage issue that keeps me from working when there's water in the garage?
Well here's hoping it is fixed lol
What a wild month it's been.
Stuff is still happening tho!
Then there's this lil guy in the background
Couldn't run the grinder, but the drill press is quiet! And at 1am that's a necessity lol
So what does the rest of that red one look like? That’s an interesting handle shape and it’s speaking to me a little...
It's a small thin sheepsfoot kinda shape. It's a re handle for @M.Hatfield
It used to be this one:
The Purple Heart wood kept shrinking and expanding. Made for a great carving knife though. Still will be a great little carver.
Well, project stop the garage from flooding kinda almost worked. Only half of its flooded.... leaky door is to blame this time.
Enter 1 board, a piece of a brick and 2 round sandbags and theres a halfass fix for the night....
I was wondering how you made out with those storms...
Rained like Noah's arch was needed, lots of flooding and water rescues apparently. My store closed at 2 so I got to go home and be with the dogs and family.
Stay safe and be well. Everything else can wait.
Is it over yet? Tornados and storms last night just a few miles from the house, flooding and no sleep all night.... everyone I know is okay tho...
Time to put the newly handled and modded Ontario machete to work on cleanup
Glad you are safe and dry! Please stay that way.
Oh and Happy Memorial Day!
