I was hoping I could get most of the puppies sold by word of mouth, but that has not panned out. I have heard not a peep from the rumor mill. I have 4 girls and 3 or 4 boys. I haven't decided for sure if I want to keep one of the boys.
The Momma is an AKC registered White German Shepard. The Dad is a White German Shepard but he is not registerable because he was rescued and we can't track down his lineage so the puppies can't be registered.
I've gotten this knife to functional. It still needs a little time with some sandpaper to finish up some of the fiddly bits. There is also the decision to be made whether or not to bead blast the blade. This is supposed to be a working blade. Maybe we should call it the "Big Bushcraft Companion".
This would have been done sooner but -22f with -35f windchill is no fun in a shop with a small wood stove and lots of drafts.

|Maybe we need to send a couple to Oleg Volk to show us how to do a good photograph of a blade.|
|Soon....the fun with Kydex sheaths start.|

|Blades that have been heat treated|
|My knife that my friend is making for me is almost done. The bolts have been ground down and the micarta scales are on their way to fitting the hand like a glove.|
|Another view, you can see the sharp edges on the handle that need some work.I can't wait to try in out, there are some rabbits whose days are numbered.|
All the pups are weaned, once they got teeth, momma dog decided nursing wasn't for her anymore.
