I have the 5" boner and the Slim. So glad I decided to on those. About as useful as any designs out there for my needs.
Think I'll go a different direction this time.

Tim, if you have these blades still on hand, how about a #8 Skinner and a # 5 DP this time. If ok, I'll get with you on the handles later.

For those who have spoken for a knife-----

If you have not requested a handle material, please pm me and let me know
your material preferences and liner color if you want liner under the scales.

I usually have a variety of materials on hand, but special requests may need attention.

I have a variety of woods, such as walnut, maple, desert ironwood plus some odds and ends.
I usually keep black, green, natural/tan and maroon linen micarta on hand but can get anything Jantz has.
I usually have some G-10 in basic colors, I am not that big of a fan of G-10 as it is glass filled and quite heavy
and is hard on saw blades, but it can be done.
I also have antler material such as caribou, elk. limited sambar stag scales and rounds for stick tang blades.
Plus other accumulated stuff.

Thanks
Tim

Not a big issue here, I just like to be ahead of the game if possible instead of
last minute scrambling for something I could have gotten easily previously.
The manmade stuff is pretty standard with the suppliers, but the natural stuff is best bought
when you get a chance to actually handle and look at it.
Thanks
Tim

Well I guess the sabbatical is about over. 2022 was a very busy year and I do appreciate the business.
But I an hoping for this year to be down a little and i am going to go a little slower (I think) this year.

I am starting to work up the info and batches for this year. I cut blanks for all known orders and add some blades to
the build for the late comers and other orders. Not a problem filling all orders I have this year, just not forecasting
a ship date yet,but....... S/B sometime from early spring to fall or so.

Thanks tor the business.
Tim

Well, I am getting close to a 40+ blade grind. Waiting for the weather to lighten up a bit
so the unheated garage is not tooooo cold to work in. Probably another batch grind later this year.

I have piece mealed out a couple knives from blades I had on hand and will have a few
more in a couple months or so. Then later I will be doing the new build knives.

Thanks
Tim

I got one of Tim's piece meal jobs in the mail today. Big sized Slim with buffalo scales. Flat out gorgeous. It's in the image gallery but I don't know how to get in into a post in this thread.

Opened up the doors due to some sun shine and a slight break in the weather to
do some blade grinding yesterday. Long ways to go, but will be slowly working on this
batch in future.

Ok Geedubya, tell me about that chef's knife. What steel and how do you like it?

I am seriously thinking on asking Tim for a chef's knife in S35VN.
