I'd be interested in Pattern #6, the Loveless style drop point; except, I'd like a small (1/8" diameter) sharpening choil next to the finger guard, and the blade sharpened all the way to the sharpening choil. Is that doable?

That is doable.
You send me a pattern of exactly what you want and we can do that.

I had a couple complaints from customers who got a knife with the blade done as you requested.
The complaint was that the hide would catch in the choil and not cut when opening up deer etc.
I don't see that as an issue because I don't usually have the very back of the cutting edge do much cutting.
So, sometimes I do an angled step there and sometimes straight back and sharpen to to ricasso.

But, as stated above, we can do it however you want it and and send me a hard copy of the profile.

Thanks
Tim

PS: the pattern request is for two reasons. Give you what you want. Not have an issue when get it in hand due to my interpretation of request.

Update
I have not cut out any blade blanks yet.
As it stands now, I would think that the first finished knives would start being ready around early March +++.

Unless I missed someone I have the following members lined up for knives out of this M4 batch. -Some details still open.
