That 16 bore is sweet. Got to handle it and the sub-hilt this afternoon before they were to be shipped out.The Reno is up there with them also.
We had a nice discussion about how these big wheel grinders make them cut so well.
The price increases are just to keep us level. I have had too many 2 to 3 % increases and insurance goes up $50 or more a month.We are never on par with what our costs amount to.

with the price of materials and shipping going up the way it has been, I doubt you're even breaking even.

i do'nt believe custom knife makers make any money, they are lots of farmers & ranchers doing it in their spare time but the money comes from wives & other side jobs like welding , goats,hogs, & chickens. if any doubters are out there ;please request a visit to one of these guys shop. you better pack your own lunch.--cranky72

L parson had his first price increase after doing bussiness for maybe 10 years. I think he went up about 10 bucks thats part of my increase. He deserves more than that. Frankly his sheaths are worth double. The sheath is just as important as the knife!

Here is a 7" semi skinner called the "The Reno" Its got a 3-1/8" blade with 2-7/8" of slicer edge. Tapered tang,some killer Ivory micarta,red liners & black micarta pins. A real nice one with super thick Menefee made in pocket leather.

Eye candy time...

These two are in the pocket small fixed blades,a "3 Finger" and a "Little Dandy" . The three finger has ivory micarta and black micarta pin,with a tapered tang & red liners.
The Dandy has 1/8" stock,usually 3/32",it has black micarta hand jigged by Rick ,with red liners & spun pins. Both have Menefee leather,and "drawn" swedges on the blades.

Those are some great looking knives Rick and Vince. But I imagine you guys can guess which one I am partial to. I cant wait to get my hands on "The Reno".

Rick the pics of the 16 bore do not do that thing justice. I really like it and it fits my big mitts surprisingly well. The stag 3 finger you sent is no slouch as well. Both are top notch work.

I do like the ivory three finger as well. Is it the same, size wise, as the stag one you just sent me?

Reno

Boy, I pity the guy who gets that thing......

If it looks half as good as the stag on the three finger they will be very lucky.
