The favorite item for me to make is very detailed folding wooden knives. Have been making them appx. 10 years. Have make well over 700. By being close to Fort Knox, Ky and having several customers there the knives have spread around the world. People are now starting to collect them. All the light colored parts are maple, the handles are from many exotic woods which I buy in small quanitys. Each knife has appx 12 to 15 parts. I pick up the handle emblems from a lot of different places. Some are buttons, some are earrings. I can usually find and put on speciall request emblems. All the knives are marked USA and KY ,and are signed and dated. These four are #,s 82 thru 85 for 2011. If I get everything just right the blades make that snapping sound when the are opened or closed. Just fiinished these yesterday 3 of them snap really good and the other just a little. Thanks for looking and if you all seem to like them will post others from time to time.
