We're getting ready to release a very limited edition of "Kanorado" PK-47s. They were made with the last handles I started work on in Kansas. All were finished in Colorado.

On Friday, February 28 we emptied out my shop in Stilwell, KS and loaded everything onto a 26' U-Haul truck. We hit the road for Colorado the next day (Saturday, February 29) and made it to the state line just as the sun was setting. There's a small town on the east side of the line called Kanorado (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanorado,_Kansas). I've passed by it countless times, but this one had special significance. These brushes commemorate that passage.

There are 20 Kanorado PK-47s in total, including five representing each of four materials (Ivory, Butterscotch Marble, Horn, and Indigo). I turned the first PK-47 prototype from Indigo. We used Ivory, Butterscotch Marble, and Horn to make the First Batch of Paladin handles in August-September of 2014.

Stay tuned for more details. And stay well.

A very nice offering, Ken.  A Paladin brush commemorating your transition from Kansas to Colorado had to be either a Chief or a PK-47.
