    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!

    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.

    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....

    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.
