Dad went up to North Carolina for the weekend and stopped by the Smoky Mountain Knife Works and picked me up a few presents. We're a gift giving family. It's like Christmas Morning! [img]http://i.imgur.com/iMT5DSi.jpg[/img]...

re: Anyone Into Knifemaking? - PurpleandGold Motown
Yeah, I'm really enjoying it. I work in real estate and marketing, so I rarely get that satisfaction of holding a finished piece or completing a project all on my own. Checks are nice though.

Anyone Into Knifemaking? - PurpleandGold Motown
I decided to make my Dad a homemade father's day present. So I picked up a blank and some scrap ebony from Woodcraft. FYI ebony smells like shite when you're grinding it. Needless to say, it took me much longer than I thought, but I'm happy with my first attempt. Since then, I've made two mo...
