KITH 2012 KNIFE TRADE

Post by woodsman1031 » Wed May 30, 2012 11:02 pm

Hello,

I was thinking about getting another KITH started here. For the newcomers to knife making, it stands for Knife In The Hat. Basically, everyone who is interested in joining throws their name in a hat and I will find some impartial person (TRADRAG HELPED IN 2009) to draw the names. A week or so before the shipping date, the makers will be PM'ed the recipients name so they can make contact and get the shipping address.
I would also like to include knappers in this also. Steel or stone does not matter because a knife is a knife. Do your best work and have fun. Unless someone has any objections or suggestions, there is no theme to follow or size limits. Make what you make best. This is for first time knife makers as well as experts. There are great knives made from old circular or handsaw blades and an old block of wood. Now is the time to learn to make a knife. They can be forged, stock removal, knapped or even a pre made blade you add handles too from knife supplier. Sheaths are a must for fixed blade knives. It can be a folding blade or a fixed blade. If you are not good at making sheaths, just do the best you can and you won't hear any complaints. If you make a bowie and will get mad if you do not recieve a bowie, please do not enter. This is the easy way to start a collection, make friends, and have fun. I am sure that whatever you make, the, the recipient will be very happy with it.
To give everyone time to see the post and respond, I think the cuttoff date should be midnight July 31st and have the knives shipped by August 31st. Any sugestions for different dates are welcome. JOIN AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE!

One other thing, when you receive the knife, you have to take some pics and post them.

I am really pumped about this KITH. I have not even been in my shop to make a knife in over a year until the last few days. I have 3 started already!! :dance:
