I have not see a posting of a finished commission order so here goes. I have a (friend/customer) who gives me a nice order before Christmas every year. This year he requested two of the “I Have Secrets” boxes,

eight all wood folding knives w/four of them made like a baseball bat and eight inlayed display boxes for them.

They are all finished as of today and will be delivered (2 1/2 hours away) to him Sunday. He uses these as Christmas gifts for friends and family. This has been the norm for the last several years. Of course I really like the order and getting to visit all at the same time. Thought you all would be interested at looking at the merchandise. Thanks for looking.

Why go somewhere else when you are already buying the best. Nice work Vernon. I hope one of those knives is for me. I like the flutes on the boxes too.
