As many of you know, the Rutply (Dymondwood) factory burned down and it is not expected that they will rebuild.  It is possible that when our current stock is gone, there may be no more.  We've looked for some other economical handle solutions for you and we've added some synthetic options for both wood and ivory alternatives.  Check them out and let us know what you think.

Most of you are aware that we are an on-line business, and really not set up for attendance of the public.  That said, from time to time we do try to accommodate someone who wants to pick up a large item to avoid major shipping expenses.  We recently had Alberta knifemaker Jeremy Goertz arrange a visit to pick up his new KMG grinder.  He has a YouTube channel and posted his trip, including my messy shop for all the world to see. He also has a great video on how to make a knife with simple tools.
