Hey Craig,

These look really nice, I'm sorely tempted. A question though, are these the "Christmas Knives" for this year? In years past you had a pile of small by knife kinds of things, that I liked to purchase to use as add ins for customer projects. These might be a bit robust for that purpose! Happy

Those new pieces are awesome, Craig. The ones that were tempting me are marked as sold so I'm safe so far.

Hi Russ

Yes this is our take on the Christmas Special this year. We will probably do some small knives in the spring at some point. Knives for Peter Rabbit maybe Eek!

We will have a few more things up later today. Its turning into one of those days in the shop.

I absolutely love those two Bauernwehr (#'s 4 and 5, I think)-- long, beefy, and pointy. Perfect for personal protection from horse thieves!

We have a few more added to the mix! The Baselard comes with a scabbard.

We also have had some difficulty in the prototype lab so check this evening for some additions to the muster page.

Craig,
I like the Swiss dagger. Happy The grip looks a lot like the first version made for my dagger, before we settled on the final shape mine has. Very classic shape.

Thought you would like that Chad. It is similar to yours and directly related to what we worked on with your dagger. The grip form on these daggers is very subtle, just a bit here or there can change how it feels in the hand. This is example is one of those that works well in a four or three finger grip.

PostPosted: Fri 13 Dec, 2013 10:13 pm    Post subject: More Christmas Info         Reply with quote

We have had a bit of a set back in our R&D dept at A&A. We had a special idea for Christmas this year and worked very hard to get it ready for the holiday but as the picture below illustrates we had an unforeseen design flaw. Eek! While we had visions of happy A&A customers finding something special in their stocking on Christmas morn, we discovered some holes in our theory of how it might work.



The result is we have some slightly defective stocking stuffers on our muster page Happy

Happy Holidays from A&A

PS this pick is an actual shot of each sword with a real stocking, not sure how but they look totally photoshopped WTF?!

PSS Just a bit of additional info everything on the muster page is 10% off till Jan 3rd 2014!
