    Thanks for the warm welcome
    Yeah I'm sure this is the start of me falling down the rabbit hole of a knife addiction, and I hope there's no cure :p

    Stay safe and healthy all.

    She is a beauty David and by the look of it those scales aren't going to loosen up anytime soon. I'm working with some Purple Hartwood scales for a knife I'm making and I have to say that is an absolute pleasure to work with but man this wood makes oak seem like Balsa wood in hardness.

    Another new member here from the UK! I've always been interested in knives, but over the last year I have found myself rapidly sliding down the slippery slope of knife addiction . It looks like I'm going to learn a lot from you guys

    First day on the forum. I picked up my first nice knives about 20+ years ago. Then I just settled on mainly Leathermans until a couple months ago. I am determined not to get too crazy but I am on my 3rd knife and just ordered a sharpener. So how few many knives can you have before you have to say you are a collector?

    Looks like I found the right place for NFGs.
    Just joined but I have looked before on Tapatalk.
    I am in Central Texas. Retired last year and have always wanted to make knives. Unfortunatly, I never had much chance. Took up buying blades, putting handles on them and making custom sheaths, both leather and Kydex as well as combination sheaths. I also shoot, hunt, reload, obviously fish as well as make custom rods and soft baits. I am on a couple other forums with the same name.
    Also, If anuone knows how to make this Forum work on tapatalk I would be emensely grateful. It is a lot easier for me than a laptop. I can' seem to get it to work.
