Group is moving

This group will be deactivated on July 4, 2014. As I begin to set us up for transitioning to the new format our provider is offering, we will lessen the amount of groups that we host and those that are not showing activity regrettably will be the ones that need to be deactivated. Thank you for the posting. Not wanting to lose the information in this group it will be transitioned to http://www.iknifecollector.com/group/odds-ends Box Full of Knives

Thanks Rusty for posting those you did a great job on the pics!! Not to worry though we have a few irons in the fire for our next project.

The Champlins have been top-notch so far.  These are S/N 27.  Hopefully there will be others to join the group.

Although this latest offering has been cancelled (at least in its original form) I will still be looking forward to the next one in the JBF line!!

Thanks for keeping us updated, Mike.  Judging by your previous offerings, these will be well worth the wait.  The photos on your site are a pretty good guide to making a knife.  I almost feel like I could run those machines after studying all those pictures.

Here is the latest update on the knives, I spoke to Ken Daniels early in the week and as of today I will be picking the knives up on Monday Dec 2nd. I will then start to get them mailed out. I should also have more pictures this week and as soon as I get them I will Derek will post them on our site. Again thanks to all that have ordered a knife or set of knives for your patience with these.
