Roger has been busy

Click on any of these....they should enlarge.
Roger is trying to make all his buddies a knife...I cannot count how many he has made so far...probably this makes a dozen in the past two or three years.
I really, really like the feel of this one and I love the handle...it is micarta, an industrial laminate. When you look close at the handle you can see the weave of the fabric, but it is so silky smooth to the touch.

My niece is coming down for a couple days so I may not get much blogging done. We plan to go to a little quilt show over in Arthur, Illinois tomorrow if nothing happens. Other than that we don't have any big plans. Just to sit and visit a little bit.

Very nice. I am sure all that receive a knife will treasure the gift of love included with it.

I love the patina look of the handle. Tell Roger when I go to the knife store in the Smokies that's the kind of handle with the swirling like pattern that I look for. :)

Roger has been busy, but he does do beautiful work. The knives are works of art.
I hope you have a wonderful visit with your niece.

What a craftsman your Roger is... Let Roger read this about our laws concerning knifes..

"It is an offence for any person, without lawful authority or good reason, to have with him in a public place, any article which has a blade or is sharply pointed except for a folding pocket-knife which has a cutting edge to its blade not exceeding 3 inches."

At once I always carried a knife while out walking.. now I leave it at home just in case... seems our goverment thinks we would all run about killing each other. ;o)
