    So is CPK (namesake of the pizza joints) the new universally used acronym or will the old NTM still be acceptable?!

    How about some shop candid's?

    You've all heard of Jo. She has the heart of an angle. In a jar. On her desk.

    Milling the bevels on the Light Chopper:

    ^ That's one of the knives that will be finishing up next week. :thumbup:




    CPK, manufacturing the worlds finest CPM 3V steel wool and brillo pads:

    [​IMG]

    ^ there is no glove made that will keep those out of your fingers. It's a labor of love.



    A box of Field Knives finish ground and ready for tumble:

    [​IMG]

    ^ we put temporary scales on those before the first tumble to keep the tang from rounding over. Those scales are ground back at bit at the ricasso.


    This is Sadie the idiot shop dog:

    ^ she's actually really difficult to photograph.

    She has a total of two neurons in her head and they're not connected to anything *shrug*

    Very nice and interesting pix Nathan!

    I wanted to name our last dog Spaz, for obvious reasons, but the wife wouldn't let me.
    While I love her to death, the dog ain't no card carrying Mensa member!

    Congrats on the forum Nathan, you deserve it, you make a flawless blade my friend and I cherish the Osage Drop Point Hunter you gave me. It cuts like a scalpel and the D2 holds an edge forever.

    Here's mine with an Osage Pen made by our own Dopic1. :)
