I see I need to make a trip west. He is getting a nice set up, and makes some really nice knives. I still have oil if he wants it.

How does a guy get on the list for a new knife? That is a neat set up and he is a handy feller. :D

You are gonna have sooooo much stuff from here in the Sandhills, that you are gonna have to make the trip. Maybe even gonna have to bring an armored truck with all that crusty old money. :p What, with a paur of leggins, a knife, a truck load of heifers..... By the way, wipe the drool off the screen.

They are beautiful knives, and they must be sharp. I count 2 sets of missing whiskers in these pictures alone...

Beauty of a set up, looks great.

Was the anvil made from a piece of rail road track?

Those pics and the topic make me want to travel south for a visit.

Craftsmanship is in short supply in these days Made In China.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the nice compliments. Sparky is quite handy at whatever he does. He did make his anvil from a piece of railroad track. I think his goal is to get good enough at knife making, and sell them for high enough prices, that he doesn't have to fix hay baler axles. :wink:

I sure understand how you could get so excited. Our weather has been nice enough, that I am getting started on some of my fencing projects. And like you, I may have to take on a few more jobs on the side, to fund my chillies.
