Dyed hand cut bone. High Carbon Stainless Blade and Spring.

The Second Gentleman who stopped by today purchased this knife - finished at Midnight. $750. SOLD

Thanks for taking a look. Hope you like it.

Also - you recall I've showed you the shells for another Expedition Case I was making. Like the Nickle Silver Hunting Cases you have seen. That is now Sold. Along with another letter opener and much of the jewelry I had listed.

I'm very appreciative of the fact that the value, and uniqueness of the products, spoke for themselves today.

There are more in the works.

Best,
Gary

I forgot the obvious. This allows me another flurry of work time on my Outrider Group!

AND ... We completed the big swap over to a completely new firm of Realtors representing our Maryland property. I don't expect flowers - but I worked all week (the third week of this nasty chest infection - antibiotic finally has that trailing off) but I've had at least one - often two Migraines every miserable day last week. It's been a joy. Conclusion: we are keeping the lights on, and meeting the obligations. I don't expect a thread of thanks - I ask for participation in order to keep the forum healthy. Not seeking endless praise. I have to tell, you and show you, what I'm doing each week - and where we all are - or otherwise there is no way for you to know.

When the darned house sells - it will help much - by way of lessening outflow. However; I'm never going to recover the lost $100k planned to make up the time needed to clear the ledger, and live off of for that period. So; it's gonna be work if I pull it off. I hope it's realized that one enormous number of people have lost everything in the last couple of years. Life isn't always fair - usually isn't. But - what you have seen me do, is what I will continue.

I just try to give you the reasoning behind what you see here.

Very nice work Gary, how do you achieve that high gloss finish (if it's not a trade secret....)?

Hello Neil,

Bone is dense enough to polish that highly. Progressively finer abrasive belts on the grinders I made, then buffing compound on cloth wheels of a powerful buffer. There is no "applied" finish.

Thanks!

Hi Gary.

Another beautiful knife. The stained bone handles' are turning into amazing patterns. The owner will enjoy showing this knife to his friends and family.
