There is a lot going on in the shop! Yuko and Bryan sold their home and are moving while Pam and I will be leaving for a short vacation. Andrew will be working a lot while we are out and Yuko will be back in. Things are a little mixed up but working fine!
We have a new employee Johnna and his friend Kaleb who is just learning right now. Johnna is making post on intagram and is really into Medford knives as well as just about anything that can cuts! Both are great kids and attending college right now.
We have the last group of 20 Elk handle Winkler 2 belt knives coming in this month! So if interested do not wait!
Also we hope to have the Medford drop point Maurader in for Christmas but it maybe after the first of the year. This knife will be "cera-coated" (do not know the color) and will have just a few dog paws where your index finger and thumb grip the blade. Will not be all over the knife.
If interested email me and we will let you know when they are coming and will send pictures of the prototypes. No prices are known at this time or delivery dates.

Micheal Vagnino custom flipper with a liner lock.
Kirby Lambert Pirate flipper "The Cutlass". A larger flipper featuring a sterling silver pirate flag bead with some of the silver from the 1715 fleet which sank off the coast of Florida in 1715. Many of the pirates at some point tried to recover treasure form these ship wrecks. Bellamy, Williams, Black Beard, Vane, and Jennings and many others!
An additional Meford project.
Duane Dwyer Lignum Vite Sng knives with a pirate theme!
Maybe one or two of our Strider projects might com up.
A few people have asked why a pirate theme for Plaza Cutlery. I collect ship wreck coins. I had an opportunity a year ago to purchase a coin from the Whydah. Whydah is the only pirate ship to go down with its treasure and it was recovered by Barry Clifford off of Cape Cod. Everything was placed in the museum but a few coins were given to people who worked on the project. I bought the 3rd cob (coin) to become available that was owned by Ken Kinkor, Barry's historian. So I have been reading everything I can. Ernie Emerson and I have talked about as he collects coins also, mostly Roman. Hopefully we can do something. So that is the why! As for dog paws that story is posted but most of us love dogs! We hope to do some cat paws also!
The website is going through some final changes. Look for the Brands tab to change and the current one will change to Brand Catergories. Will be adding a "Black Friday" page so please look for that!
The show was great and door prizes are shipping. We have a couple more days work on it so they should be out in the next 10 days. If you win something a post on our Facebook page would be appreciated!
Thank you for the support!
