Our average day probably starts much like yours. Coffee, breakfast and then off to work. But our work lives right here with us. KNIVES: Clint spends his day split between the workshop and his "clean" station in the house. The average knife and sheath can take 3-4 days to complete. Each blade starts with the best steel. He is very picky about the knife blanks he chooses, and tries whenever possible to buy from US based manufacturers. Each blade is acid etched with our logo and then out to the shop it goes. Grinding, pinning, sanding, the important start to every knife. Then on to the finishing work. After careful inspection, and a lot of hand sanding, the knife handles get their color. Several layers of dye are applied, with sanding in between. Finally the beauty of the grain is perfectly highlighted. The final finish is comprised of three secret (and stinky) ingredients. While he waits for things to dry he works on his leather sheaths, which are designed to fit each individual knife. Molded sheaths require lots of wetting, working and drying time in the oven. Tooled sheaths spend a lot of time being pounded on! Each sheath is color matched to its knife, snaps and conchos added, then is hand stitched. TEXTILES: Roxy starts every batch of tool rolls and bags the same way. Our kitchen doubles as her cut shop! With a folding table, a square and her book of designs she dives into 60" rolls of canvas and huge leather hides. Because of the setup involved, cutting usually takes a full day, but can yield enough components for many bags, and as many as 70 tool rolls. Next, everything is transferred to the sewing room. Using an industrial sewing machine she runs zipper by the mile. Tool rolls are hemmed and turned out by the dozen. The final steps involve inspecting and trimming each piece. Zip wags are added to bags, grommets are set, then things are ready to be photographed. READY FOR MY CLOSEUP: We photograph all our items ourselves. In fine weather, we try to shoot outdoors, using our rustic property as the perfect backdrop. In inclement weather (75% of the time) we use our glassed in porch. Even light, a battered old traveling trunk and a tripod. STORAGE: So, with a 900 square foot house where do we keep all of this stuff? Simple answer....everywhere! Roxy uses all her available wall space to store tool rolls in hanging pockets. Bags and other textiles are folded and packed into tubs that fill our shed in stacks. Clint's knives are stored inside the house as they take up a LOT less space! ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE: We generally end our day the simple way. We enjoy our beverage of choice and talk about our projects, show each other what we worked on that day, and brainstorm new ideas. We love to cook and often enjoy preparing supper together. The next day....we do it all again.
