    I'd be game for a friction folder.

    Well I'm in. Hopefully the upcoming change in work schedule will make it easier to get some shop time in. Hasn't done so good for me this summer. Hopefully winter brings more free time. And for the theme portion, what have the last few been?

    .......just a thought, if every maker participating put in at least one kith suggestion (more is welcome) that would give us 11 different styles (currently) to choose from in a poll. I will keep track of the suggestions and will update with a poll when we have enough ideas to pick from.......feel free to submit a picture with your suggestion.

    I was telling a friend at work that we will be starting another kith and he said joking that it could be a Christmas gift so I started thinking. If it could fit everyone's schedule maby have an end date a couple weeks before Christmas to give time for shipping. When the package arrives it goes under the tree untill Christmas day. Nobody knows whoes knife is sitting a few feet away under the tree. That would be torture for me. Haha. What do you guys think.
