OOh, I really like this one. Really!
Be still my heart, black pearl inlay. Looving it!
But, nope. It's gone.
Shane also made a custom stingray skin lanyard.
Yup, wifey knows best- shoulda kept it hun.
sting ray skin inlay.
Yum! I love mokume. It reminds me of chocolate.
Loving this Mosaic pattern!
Did you know they are not having Blade show west in Oregon this year.
Don't worry, It was just Lacy's heart.
We are sooo going to miss it
but on a happier note Shane and I will be attending the
PKA knife show in Denver Co. August 20-22.
I'm excited to be there!
Shane will have a table there and we hope to see you there.

Heavens! I have not blogged For like FOR- EV-ER.
(Ever watch Sandlot? I just had a Sandlot flashback.)
I have excuses and good ones too, but let's just say January and I DO NOT like each other and I can't wait til February comes. Please come quickly February. I know you love me...
Anyways... Shane has been working his little fingers to the bone.
Here are a few of his talents...
This green folder was made in December.
I love Green! This is a soft neutral green and it just speaks to me.
Really, it's saying, "Lacy, you want me... you need me... you don't have a green knife...I would look really hot in that display case of yours."
Sheesh, that green knife is pretty full of himself, isn't he? Truth is... he's right.
I really would love to have this green folder in my new display case!
Oh, I don't think that I've mentioned that I have a new display case. Don't worry it is still guarded by lazer- light maze detection and of course Ninjas with numb chucks. Guess what, I added a security thumb print recognition pad too. Very cool. Aren't I just so technologically advanced?
(crazy cool file work.)
If you haven't yet seen the first folder that Shane can just scroll down to the last post.
Back to knives... Did you know that you love me? You do love me.(Yes, this does lead to knives.)
This is why you love me. - I tell you ALL of Shane's deep dark knife secrets.-
Your welcome and I love you too.
For instance, did you know that Shane was really scared to make a folder? Yeah, He was.
He'd see a folder and say, "I'm going to buy that."
I'd say, "No, go make it."
He'd say, "I don't think I could do it."
I'd say, "I didn't think you could even make a knife at all, and you have, so go home and make one." We had this conversation quite a few times until one day. He did just go home and make one.
This is where our he said/she said thing continues. "See hunny, you can do it. You've even madetwo folders now and they are beautiful. You, my love, can do anything! Your abilities are endless. That's why I know you are perfectly capable of putting your dirty clothes in the hamper, instead of on our rocking chair. Love you."
Shane made this knife as a retirement gift. It has such a soothing color combination. I love the California Buckeye Burl wood and the mammoth tusk bolster with that little touch of blue in the spacers. The blade steel is CPM S30V.
Oh my gosh, and check out that sheath. Shane did something new on this Sheath. He folded the lining over the top of the sheath. (I'm sure there is some fancy name for that but I don't know it and Shane is not around.) This sheath also has gator inlays. Can you stand it?I can't stand it! That is crazy cool.
My favorite file work!
Thanks for reading my crazy antics.

While we were at the Blade West Show a feller stopped by my table a couple of times and looked over my knives. He picked one up and said he really liked the Damascus steel it was made from. I told him I bought that piece of Damascus from Chad Nichols, and he is right across the isle so go check out his steel because he does have some very nice Damascus. A little while later the same gentlemen came back to my table with a very nice piece of Damascus steel he had bought from Chad and he asked me if I would make a knife for him from it. I said that would be great! So here are some pics of how the knife turned out. It is about 12" overall and about 2" at the widest point, so it is sorta big. The handle is made from stabilized Giraffe bone. I think it turned pretty good.

I finished my first folder from scratch a few weeks ago. They are kind of a pain in the but to make but fun also. I made the liners from .050 titanium, the handles from black & blue G-10, and the blade from A-2 tool steel. This one turned pretty good for being my first one. It opens and closed smooth and the lock is solid and smooth also. I hope to make a lot more of these in the future. Here are some pics of the folder.
It also has file work on the outside of the back bar, and on the inside!
Thanks for checking out my blog & I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Shane

You'll have to excuse the little school girl scream! But I have just a fun little tidbit to announce!
Our local newspaper did an awesome article on Shane and his knives (of course)!
It's been so fun hearing from people who have known Shane for years, and yet, had no idea what talent he has!
Thanks so much for all your kind words!

You can see why this Carbon Fiber Fighter was the first to sell. It is just a really, really cool knife!
The sheath has sting ray skin inlays! How cool is that?
