New from Montana




joined here a while back and realized I never really introduced myself so i figured better late than never. I am a full time custom knife maker, relatively new to the 1911 field but i think I may be addicted. spend most of my free time chasing elk with my bow in september.

It's always nice to have new members (even old members who just introduced themselves) who are on the "cutting edge".

You will find this a great place to dig up information on anything 1911 related. It, the forum, is a great tool and you will meet a lot of new friends.

See you around,

Grumpy

Thanks for the welcome guys.

Yes I have website but I was hesitant to put it on here. I didn't want to come across as only getting on here to advertise. I just stumbled on here and it looked like there were a lot of good folks and some good info. That said my website is www.rjhandcraftedknives.com

My Dad was born in Billings too. I was born in Livingston. Proud to be a 6th gen Montana guy. The Bitterroot is nice country.

Hi from a now-northern Virginian whose family (mother's side) was from Helena and whose wife is from Miles City. Graduated from UM (Missoula) longer ago than it seems.

I've been around weapons all my life and I know quality when I see it, and you
have and make it. I believe in " a tool for every trade". I'm familiar with the infamous legends like "Bob Loveless and Ken Onion"and others etc. I've come to
own several knives from houses like Kerhsaw , SOG, Benchmade ,Buck, Spartan, Strider, moki , Sabenza - Chris Reeve, Tony Marfione Custom etc. Same goes for my 1911's.
It was very nice to hear from you Knifeguy keep up the trade, Oh and don't worry about your sanity...... there are plenty of nuts here ( California ) too.
