I do not take an order lists and make knives from that "said" list. I did this during the earlier years of my knifemaking and it became something that took the enjoyment out of the process. More often than you would think phone numbers get changed and email addresses bounce. This led to considerable frustration and slowed down momentum so I changed how I do things.........
What has been working for several years has been this.
I tell people that are interested in my work to make contact with me. And keep making contact with me. This builds a relationship, and in time, will get someone a knife of their own. It may take a couple of years to work in a knife but if you show interest in what I make I promise that it will come together.
Basically "lists" get overlooked but PEOPLE DON'T.
I do save an email list and let people know each year what is available after or during the annual Atlanta Blade Show. This also can work into an "unofficial" interest list that I can work from when able.
The long story short is..............if you want a knife - Contact me several times during the year and we will work it out. It make take time but anything handmade often does.
Thanks for your patience and interest in my work.
