This is a collective effort from Edmund Davidson, Steve Johnson and Wolfgang Loerchner, heat treat by Paul Bos, engraved by Barry Lee Hands which will be donated and raffled to raise funds for Lung Cancer research.
It's off to Paul Long's in Texas for a sheath.

This knife has been a pleasure to work on. It was great working with Edmund, Wolfe and Barry on it's construction. Not to mention Kevin Jones, of CKCA, Paul Long, who's doing the sheath and Chuck Ward, who'll be taking photos. Keep and eye out, I have a feeling that it's picture will show up in the best places!

Great job by all involved.

Looking forward to seeing this knife at the CKCA Banquet.

Might have to buy a chance on it also.

Take Care

Hi Steve,
Have the details of the raffle been figured out yet? will that occur at the BLADE show?

The details are still pending, I believe. There is a discussion happening on the CKCA Forum.

The raffle looks like the way to go, but how many, how much per ticket, etc.? Thanks!
Good question Steve. All the options/opinions are before the board and a final raffle process/rule set will be forthcoming in a couple days.

Have any of you worked on a collaboration before - and how did it go? I find it frustrating in hoping to get my part done on time and done well. Then there is the transportation of the "part" to the next guy, always worrying about it's safe arrival, etc. Fed Ex is pretty worry free, I've found. This one went well, though there was a "bump" or two along the way. It was an honor to work with these gentlemen Edmund Davidson, Wolfgang Loerchner, Barry Lee Hands, Paul Long, Chuck Ward and Kevin Jones of CKCA.
