That really sucks Joe, I know you really felt bad about it. Look at the positive side though, it wasn't broke off IN YOU, at least you're ok! :shock:

Glad the customer was understanding about it.
He also taught me a valuable lesson - we are human, what’s really important are the people around us. I have always tried to be kind to everyone, to have compassion, love and understanding. Everyone has a story to tell, take some time and listen.
An excellent lesson for us all!

If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn't have made animals taste so good.

Teak burl - the subtle patterns and unique coloration remind me of stone.

Keeping up Kogatana improvements. These are all a learning experiences, with each iteration turning out a little better. I scratched some of the KU off when shaping the handle so I went ahead and polished it up a little and rounded the spine. Next time, I will leave it as is.

Had a heck of a time making the thin piece of leopard wood for the liner, but I really wanted that look.

Snakewood May be a bit overkill for a $29 knife , but hell it was scrap wood
