Tim,
PM sent requesting a #4 Boner, and a #6 Slim. Hope I'm not too late.

Looks like I built enough extra blades in this batch to meet all requests (unless I missed someone).

Hard to second guess the late comers, but sometimes it all comes together.

I would expect deliveries of this build to be in Sept and Oct.

I do not expect to do another batch in this calendar year.
Maybe next spring.
I will still have some blanks and some sheet stock left for that if and when.

Thanks
Tim

Just hit a 3 week or so interruption in working on this batch.

Keep the faith, we will get going again. Just a little delay at hand.
Thanks
Tim

OK, I am about to start working on final grinds on the blades.

I will be getting with those who I do not have a final fix on handle material so
I can get ordered what I do not have on hand.
Thanks
Tim

That Michigan Slim with a dropped point looks like a very useful design.


Every day on this side of the ground is a win.

I'm not sure how many I ended up using it on last year. Some just field dressing, some all the way from first cut to freezer. It's a handy pattern.

I love it. I seem to get back in line as soon as he finishes them. That pattern gets used at least weekly in the kitchen and I liked it on the few deer I used it on this summer. I can’t say enough good things about them.

Yes, I do and damned that is a big blade. I do not plan on doing any more large blades
after this batch.
