Store Back Up and SALE

With this last batch of carving tools that I made, I had some trouble getting the online store feature of my Available Tools page working correctly.  I finally figured out what was going on and was able to get things working again.  I can now accept PayPal and credit card payments as before.  Of course, I can always accept checks or money orders for those who prefer that method of payment. 

I have also reduced all tools by $5.00 each, just in time for your Christmas stocking.  That's custom, handmade tools for less than some production tools.  Jump over to the Available Tools page and take a look.

Happy Thanksgiving and Some New Tools

Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their turkey and mashed potatoes like I am about to.  I've been smelling the wonderful aromas coming out of the kitchen all day and I can't wait to sink my teeth into some delicious food.  I would like to call everyone's attention to the Available Tools Page where I have posted 4 new knives and 12 new palm tools.  All of these tools are available for immediate purchase.  I no longer have the ability to add payment buttons to my website, so in order to make a purchase, please email me at  All purchases will on a first-come-first-serve basis.  I can accept payment via PayPal, check, or money order.

Enjoy your turkey and have a happy holiday season.

Yet Another Price Reduction

I still have six knives for sale over on the "Available Tools" page that no one has claimed yet.  In order to move the off of my shelf and into your toolbox, I have reduced the prices down to $20.00 a piece.  That's $12.00 off from the original price.  If you've ever wanted one of my knives, now is the time to get one.  The prices won't get any lower than this.

Happy carving,

Another Price Reduction!

My inventory of available knives is down to just a small handful now and I'm ready to move those knives off of my shelf and into your toolbox.  I need to sell these so that I can buy more steel and wood to make more knives.  I think I may have some kind of addiction problem, but I'm okay with it.

Each of these knives is handmade and ready to carve out of the box.  I have lowered the price on all of these knives even more significantly that I did last time.  All knives are now listed for $25.00 each.  That's nearly a 25% savings over the original price.  For about the cost of a production knife, you can own and enjoy a handmade custom knife built with precision and care; from my hands to yours.  You'll be making chips in style!

Time for a Sale!

I still have about half of the big batch of knives that I posted for sale over on the "Available Knives" page here on the Old Stump Blog.  This might be the last batch that I make for a while, so I wanted to give everyone a heads up.  I have also lowered the price on all of my knives by about 10%.  That makes for a great price on some of the best knives that you will every own.

Best wishes and happy carving from the Old Stump.

All Finished!

Well, it was a long road, but I finally got this batch of knives done.  That was a lot of work. . . Unfortunately, I had a funeral to attend, and I did not get a chance to log all of the knives and get them posted for sale.  So, I guess everyone will have to wait just one more week before they can purchase their new knife.  Just to keep your interest, here's a group photo of all of the finished knives.

Be sure to pick out your favorite and watch for it to be posted to the Available Knives page.  That will most likely happen this coming Saturday.  I hope everyone has a great week.

Big Batch Almost Done

Well, folks, I had hoped to finish this batch of carving knives over the weekend, but sometimes life gets in the way of one's plans.  I did get most of the work done on these knives, just a little cleanup and final touch up left to go.  Here are a couple of pics of the progress.

Here's a group shot of all 21 knives after shaping the handles and burning in my makers mark.

Here's a quick shot of the knives after applying the final finish.  This is my multipurpose drying rack that some would mistake for a nut and bolt storage bin.

Look for the finished knives to be made available by the end of this week or the first of next.  They will be found over on the Available Knives page here on the Old Stump Blog.  Happy carving!

Big Batch of Knives

I know that I don't post here very much, but I thought that I would give everyone a heads up that I'm currently working on a big batch of carving knives which should be done in the next week or two.  Just for fun I took a pic of all the blades laid out on my workbench.  That's a lot of grinding!

I have three blades of each of the following profiles: 1-1/2" all-purpose scimitar, 1-1/4" all-purpose scimitar, 1-1/2" all-purpose katana, 1-1/4" all-purpose katana, 1-1/4" all-purpose hybrid, 1" detail arrow, and 1" detail katana.  These blades are all made from thin material, so they are nice and flexible.

I plan to give each of these groups of three dolphin, octagonal dolphin, and caterpillar style handles out of differing wood varieties.  It should give folks exactly what they are looking for.  Let me know if you have any specific requests and I'll try to meet your needs.  I'll post some finished pics when I get these done and you'll find them on the "Available Tools" page when they are ready for new owners.

Happy carving!
