Chisholm Trail show

I've been working like a madman for well over a month to have 20 knives ready for the Chisholm Trail gun and knife show in Wichita.

The show was this weekend. I sold six and I count that as a good event for me.

I learned a few things too.
Primarily, that I need to have a better selection of larger knives to choose from (most of my work is pocket fixed blades).

I met a few very knowledgeable buyers--very refreshing to talk highly technical stuff with people in the know.

I post today in this forum primarily because I picked up a pre-WWII, wooden sheathed, Pilipino long blade. The story was that it was a war-time 'bring back' made from an old leaf spring. It is rough, rusty, and battered.

I plan to study it and make a modern replica from similar materials as an homage to those storied knives.

I'll try to post a pic tomorrow.

"Drawing your knife from its sheath and using it in the presence of others should be an event complete with oos, ahhs, and questions."
