C'mon Don, everybody knows that the promotions make more than the feature.
We're talking action figures, happy meal toys, and of corse your own Saterday morning cartoon before we are all done.
Jackie Chan, move over.

I'll bring plenty of copies Don. Don't forget your sunglasses and body guards.
Hav'n fun, Geno

I'll have my Mom there for a body guard. Paparatzi beware!

You know, we should have at least half a dozen makers there who have made their videos. Geno, Dwayne, Johnny Stout, Alan, maybe Harvey Dean, and others including myself.

This show is the place to get autographed copies of videos.

I'll also bring one or two (better make that one) Bowies if I can get to Austin this year.
Looking forward to the show! If I just can't make it, then I'm looking forward to the 2009 show )
Robert, you never did answer my question about using the rise and fall fixture. I hope to see you and your wife there and also your first trapper.

David Broadwell(sculpting), Linda Karst Stone(scrimshaw), Weldon Whitley(slip joint folders), and Jim Pugh (lost wax casting)are more Texas artist who we have shot videos with, and trying to get there.
Texas has what it takes, we just need to get together in ONE place.
Pass the word about the show where YOU live, please (everyone).

You don't have to be a famous knifemaker to attend.
If you love knives, be there.
Makers, collectors, or just enthusiests, all will learn and grow from this experience.
You don't have to be or come from Texas, just get here July 18th.
God bless,
Geno

Hi, Johnny. After you've typed in your message, scroll way down the page to "Manage Attachments", click on it, then when the window pops up click on the "Browse" button. It will search your computer files and upload whichever file you select.

It limits the size of the actual picture more than uploading from the internet.

I don't like the look of the wharncliffe blades on my 2 whittlers, but they are made because a customer ordered one with that blade. I told him I'd send it to him after the central Texas Knife Show.

I guess if you actually used the knife to whittle, the blade would be better than a clip point. It's stronger and cuts the same start to end.

Here is my trapper I'm working on. Coming along nicely so far. I have the brown stag scales soaking in Nelsonite.
