Tim,

eMail sent for a #3 Trail Boss quote. I would like it to closely match my existing #5 Drop Point. I sent you a couple of pics on my email too.

Many thanks ahead of time.

I answered your email.
I should have an extra blade for you.

Thanks
Tim

Right now, I am nearly at a frozen stand still.

Some knives out for sheaths.
Some ready to go out for sheaths,
Some ready to be assembled.
Some still out for heat treat.

And before you say that I should put some source of heat in the garage,
then I would feel obligated to do a lot more and for now I have enough on my plate.

Thanks
Tim

I thought it was cold down here in Wild Wonderful West Virginia, but Michigan is another kind of cold that has to be experienced, but not more than once, in my opinion.

Goodness Tim, stay inside where it's warm. I can't speak for others, but don't feel any obligation to work on my knife until the weather warms up enough to be comfortable and enjoy working.

8-12" coming here tonight and in the single digits. Only good news is I get my 2nd Covid shot tomorrow.

It is warming some. Headed into the 30s in a few days.
We get our first shots today.

First couple of knives from the S35VN build shipped out today.

Couple dozen in the queue for finish grind, assemble guards, assemble handles, finish, sheath, and sharpen.

Thanks
Tim

It seems to me like this CPM S35VN at 60/61 Rc is taking more effort to sharpen than
other steels I have used in the past.
Anxious to hear from customers on how the edge retention on these goes for them.
And the touch up as required.

Thanks
Tim

Yep, I have switched to the edge pro Matrix diamond stones. Even abrasive blasting them with 80 grit AO I had to up the air pressure to get a consistent finish.

my new Olt knife showed up in yesterday's mail. I could not be more pleased!. Tim did a slack belt convex on this one, and the handsome handle is dyed Camel bone, one of my favorite materials. Hair popping sharp, and easily cuts dry Ash, Oak and Hickory wood. The shape is my old design from 2011, but made longer.

I received mine in the mail on Monday too. It looks fantastic, and feels great in the hand. Great job Tim! Thanks again for using the maple that I provided for the handle; you made a new family heirloom.

Very happy with the quality of workmanship. I have large hands and this skinner fits them perfectly. Anticipate ordering a boning knife in the future.

Shipping some more out next week and working on the last batch that
should go out around the end of this month.
Then a couple stragglers after that.
Thanks
Tim

thanks, I am quite proud of it. The one below was the original, in S30V. My design, and Tim's impeccable execution. Dyed Camel bone handles on both
