The April 12-14 is the Oregon Knife Collectors Association (OKCA) annual show in Eugene Oregon. http://www.oregonknifeclub.org/
I was able to get started on some knives for the show earlier than most years. Usually it seems I’m in a panic the week before the show trying to get everything ready, this year I started out getting things ready by a couple weeks ago. Hopefully with six weeks to prepare I will have some cool stuff for the show.
I have several Works In Progress, (WIP) and I’m doing a number of Barlows in stag. I don’t have time at the moment post each one separately, so I thought I would show you what I am doing in one big thread. This is just a quick glance some of the things I’ve got going that are probably a little closer to being finished then some of the others.
To give you a look at the quality stag I am using here is one picture that shows four Barlows and a Schrade 123OT. It only shows one side of the handle but it can give you an idea of the nice stag. I will update from time to time with more pictures as I finish up the knives.
I know this is not a Barlow but I know you stag lovers will probably like this one Schrade-Walden 165OT with stag. Pardon the Gorilla Tape on this one, it's sharp! It was tough to find stag thick enough to replace the original handles but for a small fortune… I found a set. I can’t wait to get it finished!
You guys have been very good about giving advice and opinions when I have asked for it, and I do appreciate and value your opinions. Please don’t hesitate to share your opinions on these knives. Thank you!
