Adding RipSnort to the list.
That is enough for now to keep me busy for a few months.

Thanks

Well, except for a couple tweaks, I think I have all the blanks profiled for this grind.

I will drill handle holes and pre fit guards before doing the bevel grind to the blades.

I could send a pic from my smart ass phone to someone of the pile, both before and after grind,--- IF they would be
so kind as to post it right here.

I got my Gentleman Hunter today. It's even better than I thought it would be. Here's a link to a pic. It was too large to attach here.

Blades are back from H.T.
Now the work really gets rolling.

Clean em up.
Finish grind.
Mount guards to those needing them.
Fit and install handles.
Sheath to fit knife.
Final finish work, sharpen and logo.

And deer season is just around the corner.

Probably some time in Dec before first ready to ship.
Balance in Jan.

Thanks
Tim
