The Wa Conversion and 14 other 210mm Artifex are on their way to Mark! I have the Orange Cream, Water Camo and Traditional Camo Artifex to build next!

Ask Mark, he sends me stuff to do usually! :) I don't mind doing 240's or other Western style knives. I have a 240 coming in for myself and I am doing a 240mm handle for Bullman as well, so I will have a couple to play with, but it shouldn't be any different than the 210mm ones really! I can also do rounded oval Wa style handles, or convert a Wa style knife to a more Western shape. Haven't tried a Western to a Wa yet with the metal bolster, but I can convert knives like the Artifex w/o bolsters to a Wa style.

I'll ship you some 240s along with some maple burl for them in a couple days. I just got the box of over a dozen handle jobs and they look great! I'll start putting them up on the site tomorrow a few at a time.
