    This is a really great step by step. thanks for putting this up Crash. You make it look so easy, I may even give it a try! Very nice work. It takes about as long for you to make a knife as it does for me to tan a hide.

    Yeah I agree with everything, everyone has said thus far. Just a thought Crash, Isn't it about time for you to go "Part Time Pro"? You do really nice work, I know without a doubt you could sell those easily.

    That is awsome Crash. I can't wait to get my hands on it. I'm so excited. And don't worry it won't look beautiful for long, I plan to put it work.
    1. If it's in your kit and you don't know how to use it....It's useless.
    2. If you can't reach your kit when you need it....Its useless.

    I really like the color of the scales. I hope we get a "roadkill" moose the day after I get the knife. I plan to carry and use this knife allot and I can't think of a better way to break it in the on a moose.

    I think its about time you started marking your knives. I like the "Crash Knives" name. Also start numbering or naming your designs.

    I've been informed that I may have the knife as early as Monday. I feel as giddy as a school girl.

    The rates vary quite a bit depending on the options chosen, but it looks like in the neighborhood of $35 to $60 USD with insurance.
