when you make your sheath, put a layer or two or even three of masking tape on the blade starting about an inch from the top and ending about a half inch from the bottom. cut the tape with scissors for a neat appearance…"

Favorite Kind of Knives
Love 'em all!
I am 24 and I love knives, guns, bull riding, and anything outdoors. Right now I lack the experience to make my own quality blades so I guess I am more of a kit builder. I buy up old beaten, new production, and kit knife blades in order to re-shape, sharpen, and replace handles/scales. I have gotten quite good at making/shaping my own handles/scales as well as good Kydex Sheaths. I don't sell them, I am good enough to give a knife to a family member or friend but not good enough to charge. Once I am happier with my novice skills then perhaps I'll get into the business aspect of it. Be on the look out for J.E.E. knives because sooner or later I'll get REAL good.
Get homesick seeing folks from Arizona sign up. It's great having home folks move in to town, looks like you've been busy unpacking and checking the sights.. I see that you've met a few neighbors too.
Any way, Welcome aboard.
