I'm in. Ray had mentioned a possible thought last year, a boot dagger.
That is another that I have never attempted.

dagger is also on the list of knives ive not played with.

I'm just starting to fiddle with sub-hilts, but that might be a bit much just yet for a KITH.

A dagger would be pretty cool.

I can't commit to anything at the moment but who knows between now and when a date and theme gets set. I'm definitely interested.

I'm interested. Still disappointed I had to back out of the last one. I'd like to hollow grind a boot dagger. That'd be cool. Keep me posted!

I'm interested, still have the unfinished blade from last years KITH laying around. I'll get it finished up eventually lol. Still mad at myself for not being able to get it done in time.

Oh I know lol. Now I just gotta figure out what to do with this massive Bowie blade lol. Buddy of mine likes to use them for knife throwing, may just finish it with a good hard handle and gift it to him
