My Marlboro Man Knife Maker
The weekend show is over! Amazing how long a weekend can last sometimes! We came home with a little less than what we took to the show so I guess that is a good thing. We can tell the economy is hitting hard for us "starving artists". My husband however, hereinafter referred to as "The Marlboro Man Knife Maker (MMKM)" did very well this weekend. Seems like the only folks buying this weekend were the men... and for themselves. I can't blame them, MMKM makes gorgeous knives!
Unlike myself, he's a perfectionist!
He spends hours backfiling designs and names into these knives
hours sanding and sanding and sanding
hours sharpening and sharpening
However, I do cut his knife blanks out of bars of Damascus
This beauty he made for my birthday a few years ago!
Everything I love ~ turquoise, crosses!
He always has a lot of custom orders to fill and gained another three from the show.HERE and send him an email he'll put you on his list!
