Blondie was scrimed on Jerry Langbeins knife and was featured in Custom Knives Magazine summer of 1989 and in Knives Illustrated fall of 1992 . The other knife is a Jess horn knife which we put the Ivory scales and brass bolsters on then engraved and scrimed the nude . It was featured in Knives Illustrated fall of 1993 .
these are pocket knives by master maker E.G. Peterson which I engraved.
These are folders by Norm Levin , and a fixed blade fighter by Jack Hilton . Karen did the scrim on them .

These are a couple of R.C.Campbell camp knives that I engraved and Karen scrimed .
The great Ray Appleton had a knife like this one stolen from him at the Crossroads gun show in Denver a few years back . And he really felt bad about it . Since we think Rays the greatest ever , we went to Steve Ross who had made the knife and bought him another one then I engraved it and Karen scrimed the eagle and we surprised Ray with it .
