John Del Pinto introduced me to Trace and we have talked over the phone several times and have plans to meet very soon. There are alot of great knife makers out there but his designs and approach are refreshing. I thought I would add a couple of snaps of his work.

Just had to order one of these myself. This is a Matrix.

Good stuff Trace!

Hey thanks for the post Steve.. These pics are from the USN, I dont know if people that arent USN members can see them can they?
If you guys are getting them I will try to add some more soon.

Let me know if these are coming through, I dont know exactly how posting pics works here yet, but I thought they had to be hosted on another site.. Then again I could be full of sh$t.. :lol:


Take Care

They can see 'em, the pics just have to be hosted somewhere in order to show up. Add pictures, it is no problem. Call me if you need help.

Very SWEET! Obviously a master of his craft! :D

Steve, I have to ask... how on earth do you take the fabulous pictures you post?! I have an 5.3 mp HP935 that I KNOW is capable of outstanding photos, but I can't seem to get to half the quality of photos you post! Spill it... what's Ted feeding you? :lol:

Connor,
These aren't my pictures, I just posted them. Whoever took these knows what they are doing. My pictures are a result of trial and error. :oops:

Trace's knives are wonderfully done. He is somewhat backed up right now. Full time knife crafting is like the gun building business...careful what you ask for. If you are good, people will want your product.

Trial and error?! :shock: Not only can you cook up the tastiest tactical blasters I've seen, your finesse with a camera is just as SWEET! :D Nah... you can play down your talent with the camera, but I'm sticking to my theory that Ted's slipping something into your burgers! ;)

After seeing Trace's work I am tossing out this pile of junk I found in my safe.

Seriously, Trace, Beautiful stuff, and I have been a knife guy for 35 + years, A blade magazine and knifeworld reader since they have been published, and actually met a Mr. Ed Smith and Mr. Russell at a few knife shows. Always great people. I havent found a bad person yet in the world of true craft. Pistol and Knife, you all should be revered as the swordsmiths of Japan of old. Your pistols and knives are the modern Katana, and easily as collectible and usable.

so can I trade you all of these for a small folder ??
