Thank you! This is for the grandson/ex student of mine... his grandfather was a knifemaker that passed away about 15 years ago and the handle material was a tusk that the family kept from his old shop.

These knives are things of beauty. I'm not sure I could bring myself to carry one. I'd be so bummed if I lost it. These are some of my favorites I've seen. Good job!

That one was from a while back!ha most of my folders are 3 1/2" closed with a 2 1/4" blade unless someone special orders something larger. And I'm a big fan of orange g10! I made my dad 2 knives with it and it IS a little harder to lose!haha

Coach, where do I see your knives for sale? Or do we PM and get a quote on what we want? I need three matching, single shiny blades with a traditional yellow-ish Case handle although I really like the ones above. If there were a way to put some turkey prints in the handle that would be sweet. These would be gifts for a Colorado turkey hunt I'm taking my boys on in the spring in Colorado.

Yes sir, just send me a message and we can work it out! I do most of my orders through Facebook and Instagram...I did one for a guy in Georgia I think it was about 2 months ago w some turkey prints etched into the blade...turned out cool!

Love slipjoints. Quote from early that I could have said too.

"For me, it's a nostalgia thing with slipjoints...its the 1st kind of knife I carried, and it's what my granddad always had on him."

Thanks Ben!!

We received/gave them out today.

We intend to keep these three knives in our family for generations. Myself, my brother, and my dad will carry these daily now.

Thank you again for the great craftsmanship and smooth transaction.

Ben,
How crazy it was to watch these being made not knowing their future home. Then to have them reappear as a Christmas gift. My wife wanted something for us to be able to hand down to family for generations. Before her Dad passed, he made sure the grandkids received some special of his. And knives were part of him. Even I got one of them. How awesome are these three treasures.
Thank you,
MDB
