Pre-Blade Show commissioned blades
#1
The Blade Show approaches with frightening rapidity, as usual.  I have two tables and at the moment nothing ready. 

I did have this 5160 blade, but it sold within a few minutes of me posting it on Instagram.  My wife wasn't too happy about that, but my pickup's transmission decided it needed rebuilt RIGHT NOW and I needed the money.

The rest of these were commissions that I finished up prior to the show.  They're all 80CrV2 steel with Boltaron sheaths.

These two are about 7 1/2" blades.

A 5" blade with retina-searing neon orange over hemp, for a deer hunter who wanted a hi-viz knife handle.

And a blade a bit over 6".

Great as always James
What is your table number again?
See you at Blade
Hopefully the S won't HTF and I pray every day that it won't. It would not be fun.

Perhaps if you didn't post them on the internet, they would be available for blade.

It will be a shame to arrive at Blade and see you sitting behind an empty table...especially if I just "happened" to have some cash in my hand.....just sayin....

Some mornings it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps!

I do believe, sir that Confederate Script is no longer accepted...ever since the war of northern aggression terminated and the carpet baggers descended south of the Mason Dixon

CS Script is better than gold, or loonies, or even toonies in these parts.  But in case Mr. Helm is bein particular, I do have Federal Greenbacks that are about as good as the previous presidents word... they are the "coin of the realm" so to speak and backed by the full faith and might of the government..... Rolleyes

I can probably entice him to take them if I offer enough.....

Anyone going to Blade that would like some VIP tickets to get in earlier than the general public and for less money, let me know. I have some on hand.
