Knives still being made!

Just a brief check in, Chris Reeve Knives, Spartan Blades and myself are still working pretty hard on a range of projects and technologies.

With todays international market and a few accompanying problems we have gotten to the point where projects are not spoken of until they are ready to be sold.
There are new projects in the works.

Yes the Yarborough Knife is still being made and I was told a couple days ago, a pathway for the official Yarborough knife exists again after the closing of the old JFK Special Warfare Museum on post in Ft. Bragg.

All the best!
Bill

Hey Bill! I hope you will check in more frequently, and not necessarily briefly.

We love to hear what you have been up to.

The new SF Association website has a link to submit a verification request to get a serial numbered Yarborough.

Is the PS.com knife ever likely to see another run?

Thank you Bill. I missed seeing you this year. (No SHOT)
I wasn't sure that the knives would still be available. I WAS able to get one for @LKSteve but I know there are still so many who are eligible.
God bless.

Bill, found this recently in at the Blackwood Shooting Club/Range in Conroe, Texas.

Beautiful knife hope someone buys it and knocks the dust off.

Has it really been this long since I checked in here?

OK, lot's going on in the world for everyone. The covid thing has thrown up some un-expected road blocks in the supply lines, just like for many others in all fields.

Keep an eye out for new projects with both Chris Reeve Knives and Spartan Blades.

All the best to all of you.
