Here are a few photos from the Queen Cutlery production line of the scales and bolsters being put together for our Plumber’s Whittler.The scale is now ready to have the holes drilled into it!

Many thanks to the folks at Queen Cutlery for taking time out to make a few photos of the work in progress.

Michael, that is just wonderful news!

The trade card coming this one is very cool!  It is a replica of the orginal?

Well I got the good news from Ryan Daniels yesterday that they finally got the last piece of tooling for the whittler and it is being worked on as we speak. I am told that it will be ready the first week of Nov ::ds:: Production pictures will be posted on our website as they come in. Thanks to all for being patient with us on this batch of knives.

Yes Jan the handles will be smooth bone, I wonder who gave us the idea for that, and the Cattaraugus Rosewood!! This is the first trade card we will be including with the knives!!

Excellent guys!  Thanks for the photos of the progress, the progress notes and a hint at what the extra coming with this one is.  Cant wait to see these AND the trading cards.  Have you announced the handles yet?

The first three pictures is like a machine I run at work. We call ours a surface grinder with a magnetic table.
Thanks for all the photos!
