Ok traditionally we have tried to do a knife swap around December. Our last one was summer based. So I figured we are in January and hunting seasons are winding down holidays are wrapped up(see my pun there wrapped like a present hahaha).

I'd like to see more than 4 of us do it.

For those who dont know how it works is we set parameters of a type of knife we will build. Age 18 and up and we agree to build a knife in a timeline and then cover the shipping to whoever gets the knife we make. At random its selected who gets which knife. But in the end everyone makes a knife and In return receives a custom made knife.

All skill levels welcome, this is about learning, community, fun and enjoying the process.

So let's hear some thoughts who would have an interest?

Ok

Here are my thoughts for knife swap 4.

Neck knife
Size up to maker but must be able to be worn around your neck.
Forge or stock removal up to the maker
Must include a sheath or holder with a chain or lanyard for your neck. Have fun be creative and stretch your ability

Anyone is welcome skill level doesnt matter. This is about learning, having fun and making something you are proud of to share with another.

Timeline. Finish by March 31 then mail out the next week.

Rules

1. 18 and up
2. Must follow all laws etc, knives are sharp, participants, forum etc arent liable etc.
3. You agree to ship your completed knife to the selected new owner, in return someone sends u a knife.
4. All skill.levels welcome and have fun
5. Post photos when we are done to show the forum


What do you think gang?

Working at getting back "in shape", its been a few years since I did much in the shop, but I am working off the rust! Been wanting a smaller anvil for the gun room so I didn't have to walk out into the main shop, so I found a nice one on ebay and it came today. got it clean up ready to work. Working on a few blades to get back into the groove and take a break from the rifle build.
