The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Here is an updated price list for the website. These are not written in stone. Larry likes to talk to someone when they get one of his knives because he wants to make sure they know what they are getting So many materials look alike.
What's next? Maybe the very very rare "Teenage Girl's" switchblade. with the actual marketing material. The knife was actually marketed to teenage girls and the blade was etched to make it feel personal.
Can you imagine that today? marketing switchblades to specific sets of teenagers??
Since the next holiday is Halloween,
It is time to get those camera's out and snap some spooky shots of you favorite knife.
Share those blade shots with fellow knife addicts.
Use Halloween clip art, colors etc....Just have fun....…Continue

During the Civil War, as you know, a lot of soldiers on both sides endured horrific injuries, Often injuries from the dreaded Minie Ball led to the loss of limbs. I remember some huge number detailed in a Civil War book about the number of arms & legs lost during the wa. Astronomical.
Someone invented a knife for the Press Button Knife…Continue
I was thinking how tough it would be to give up the use of a knife or reading about them, for even one day, I got the shakes just thinking about it. Maybe if I develop a 10 step program, I will be able to bring my addiction under control. I need those who are not suffering too bad ( yet ) to make suggestions as to what those 10 steps might be.
I take no responsibility for what may occur to others who choose to follow the suggestions for a KAA program. And, I do…Continue
I'm new here so thought I better contribute something :) I like to fool around with making wooden scales for fixed blades and other embellishments, recently I made a blog post about making wooden lanyard beads and thought it might be of interest here as well.
Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!
I have been asked about my lanyard beads more then once and figured it was time to do a how to on them. I'm sure there are better ways but this…Continue
Every since Larry signed to become a member of the Knifemaker's Guild, he has not missed one show until this year. Larry had a heart attack in December 2012. During this year we had to cut our shows in half and because of loss of paid days off, he had to cut the Guild Show.
He has had a lot of support from his friends with knives, knife makers and suppliers. It means a lot when you have a community that is behind you through sickness and in health. I had so many phone calls the…Continue

This is just amazing and I would love for you to share it in a blog! You place it in there and either Hog or I will be sure it is approved.
A personal Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. This is the type of…
Its not for lack of trying or looking. Many times I have labored over a decision to buy you.... only to be called away to a sick lawnmower or ailing hot water heater.
But never did I not think about it carefully. Your sleek blades shimmered so, clip, spey, tanto, and spear. I never saw better stag or bone or Micarta yes, even celluloid.
Maybe someday, wait for me! I will return and armed with cash will make that purchase.
If you ever have felt like singing this ode to a…Continue
