He Tweaks. He spends just about every evening working on his laptop tweaking the design, placement, line, what have you of whatever knife he happens to be working on that day and the next. Seems he can't leave well enough alone. But it keeps him happy, if somewhat frazzled. And he now has a new model, the smaller flipper which is the Mid-size 4F. (This doesn't imply that there will be an even smaller flipper .) This knife is roughly the same size as the Tangent. The blade is about 3.4".

Mid-Size 4F[/caption] He's also been hard at work wrapping his mind around 3-D machining. He's used it on the scales and bolsters. He's got lots of plans for future textures and designs.

He's out in the shop working on those even as I type.

Seems time gets away from us so easily now. Especially this summer. To those who are awaiting an order please know that they will be started after we get back from Vegas. Thanks for your patience and your patronage.
