Knife patterns organised

With a little down time I was able to get all my standard patterns transfered to sheet steel and hung on the wall






I now have a pic of them that can be used when I am for a blanket request to see what I make and then a decision can be more easily made as to were to start the discussion from.

see if you can find a green river bushmans friend from the 80s...thier boning knife is similar. similar to your safari hunter but with diferent back edge....that is by far my favourite style of blade and served me well for years...got one well worn one with huckery old homemade oversize handle left and just used it to slice up my venison.one Ive got lost its tip and some time in its past so not ideal. great knives for general hunting use,great for sticking pigs and all I used for dressing out sheep.
keep up the great work.

I have been working on a web site for a couple of weeks and now have it it up and running so I can easily point those to it who are asking for information on what knives I make and what options are offered.
Have a look round and see what you think.

Looks good Garry, tells you everything one needs to know.
I always wondered what the three dots meant, Trinity, makes sense now!

Thanks Mitch. Will see what traffic the site has.
I like that my makers mark tells something about me rather than just identifying the knife as one I have made.
