I have a lot of new wood including Ebony, California Buckeye Burl, Bubinga, African Amboyna, Paduak, Kiatt, Arizona Desert Ironwood,Brazilian Cocobolo, and black line Maple Burl. I also bought some streaked water buffalo horn that will look great on the right knife. I also have a nice collection of linen and canvas Micarta in various colors.
I had some good news in October when I was contacted by the production company currently filming "Hangover III" and they bought 3 of my custom knives including my personal camel bone knife for use in their movie due out this summer. They may use one of my knives in a scene but who knows if the scene will end up on the cutting room floor. I am hoping they will use one though. I was very pleased that they passed up knives from Los Angeles area custom knife makers and sent 2 of their people to my humble shop in Bakersfield, California. A production assistant bought a knife for himself also. The news got around and I was interviewed by the Bakersfield Californian newspaper and they did a very nice photo article about my knives on December 9th.
I have now had my 15 minutes of fame and must get back to work .. Larry Lehman
