Jim Drouillard ...aka ... "Drac", made this folder based upon one of Tim Herman's designs. Tim coached him through the whole process.
Nice job Jim on your first folder!

Jim sent it to me to "hack up"!

This one will get shipped out as soon as Jim and Amy are settled in their new home down Texas way.

Great Job Tim. Hey, Think I have got the butt plate thing worked out. Have made a holder and should give it a try in a few days.

That's three strikes!

Jim did a FANTASTIC job, no matter how coached or not. I'm impressed. YOU ROCK! ;)

Tim H. did a FANTASTIC job coaching Jim to complete such a great knife with his usual generous self!

Tim A. did a FANTASTIC job on the 'scratching', giving this beauty the stature it deserves.

Kudo's to all!

The engraving looks great! I had dinner with Jim and Amy last night and Jim left for Dallas this morning. Was quite enjoyable having such an enthusiastic starting maker around and will miss him.
After I got home I looked here and saw this and called Jim immediately and he was bummed because all his stuff was packed on Monday so he couldnt come see this post. I'm sure he will be quite happy as the engraving looks great and was exactly what he had in mind.
Good job Tim.

Well I made it down here in one piece.


Looks even better than I pictured it! And I never used the phrase "hack up".

Only thing left to make is a fitted lined box and it will be ready for Christmas.

Thanks to both Tim's for the help and instructions,
