Merry Christmas everyone!!

Just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!! 

Take the time to say thanks to someone who doesn’t expect it, smile for no reason, shake a strangers hand, give someone a hug and tell them you care!!  Let your kids know that the Holidays are about so much more then food and gifts, they won’t believe you but they’ll remember it later in life.  Trust me, from such little effort can come huge rewards.  Stay warm, be safe, enjoy time with friends and family!  Guess I shouldn’t necessarily say stay warm as this extends to all of of friends, customers and readers that are scattered from the Midwest USA  to Kuwait, Brisbane, London and points beyond.  Anyway, I think you get my drift.

Merry Christmas!!!

I’m BACK!!!

Kinda took my time letting it be known, but I am back in operation.  Many thanks to those of you that sent emails of encouragement, they were much appreciated.

I had partial knee replacements on both knees Thursday and got out of the hospital Saturday.  So far the recovery has been incredibly easy with just Tylenol handling the pain nicely.  Anyone consideriing new knees, all I can say is that so far, the Oxford partials have been great. 

Thanks again!!

Great Eastern Releases the #36 Sunfish!!!

It’s finally been announced that the #36 is going to be a 362208 Sunfish pattern!!!  Here’s a really quick rundown of the basic facts:



  • OAL Closed: 4.25″
  • Main Blade Large Spear  .156″ thick x 3.75″ x 1″ wide
  • Secondary Large Pen Blade 2.658″ x .75 wide
  • Crescent Pulls on the Tidioute
  • Long Pulls on the Northfield
  • Burnt Grizzly – first handle material
  • Smooth Bolsters

The schedule has them starting to ship the first week of January with the Grizzly Cut handles and the Tidioute Trademark.   Following will be Acrylics, Frontier Bone and Carved Pumpkin.  The Northfields will be coming out shortly thereafter.

These will have the first 50 knives serialized with approximately 100 more run without numbers.  I think we’re going to see a lot of new collectors jump on this offering!!!  I’ll get more info out as soon as possible!!!

Closing Shop for a few days.

Hate to do this to everyone right before Christmas, but don’t have much choice.  I’m gonna get my knees fixed up and will be away from the computer for a few days.  The store will be open and you can place orders, but I won’t be able to process orders or probably respond to your emails from December 18 through December 22.

I’ve got a great incentive to get back to business ASAP as there’s some neat stuff coming through right about that time and I can’t  DON’T  WON’T see my wife sorting through boxes of knives to put in the store.  She’s kinda funny about that.  It’s like that old “you caught ’em, you clean ’em” deal I guess.
