12/28/03 I get an e-mail from Joe asking about a custom knife. He’d seen some of mine listed and wanted something close to the ‘white stag’ I have posted in available. He’s getting ready to do a couple knife shows, one in April and the Blade show in June and wants to have a couple show piece samples to promote his engraving. I’ve never had an engraved knife but I sure want one. After a couple messages back and forth we came to decide I would make two knives, he’d keep one and engrave another for me. I’m excited. I send Sandy a message asking his help with a couple sheaths. He agrees. We’re off to the races...
