1911 Holster Completed

Check out my picture of this holster I have been talking about. When I presented it to the Officer (Which because of nature of his work had to remain anonymous), said. "James, I knew this holster was going to be great, but this is superior to all my expectations"! I know the Texas Rangers will love this when they see it.

French Knives : Fontenille-Pataud

In my opinion, Fontenille-Pataud makes the most beautiful European (not only French) production knives.

I'm fond of their skills.

They have Laguioles...…

Return after a long time

I just came back to this page after a long time.  It is really nice and I would like to come very often.  I signed in and tried to join a chat, but could not for the life of me see where to "send" a message.

I now have the opp0rtunity and potential to begin making products for our Troops. My first order is from an established and highly decorated Officer. I have also revised the Colt 1911 Pistol Holster to a more effecient model. The Officer I am working for has been able to draw and shoot, taking out the intended target, in 7/10 th's of a second. WOW !!! Don't mess with this guy, especially when he is packing his 1911 in my new holster design. Sorry, no pictures are available as this…

In Memoriam
ZDP-189 Knife Steel

ZDP-189......  This is a new steel to me, I was wondering if anyone is familar with this steel or maybe even owns a knife made with it. I see it is tempered in the mid 60's RC. I think it was developed in Japan but not sure.
