Hi Trad Gang friends. [Smile]

Sorry for being absent so long. No excuse really other than busy with other things.

I haven't been shooting my bows much in the past year or 2 due to a recurring shoulder problem, not archery related, but it affects my ability to draw my bows. So I have been playing with the rifles more, and that's not kosher here, thus part of my reason for absence.


Not building as many knives lately either, but here are a few that I did in the last several months.

I'm glad to see you're still pursuing your skills. I'm loving that gun action.

Nice knives. I like that folder especially but they're all really nice.

And a good old Canadian boy too.

Nice work as always, I really like that 2nd one in the lineup, but like Lin says, they're all nice.

Shoot your guns if you like, just keep those blades coming. Thanks for sharing.

That's what I was going to say.
