    Yes he does. He funds a couple of overseas trips a year to knife shows from the knives he makes in his basement.

    Wow. Must have been some favour. That's beautiful.
    I wouldn't take it outside either.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Mirror finish? What the hell! I'd only use that for eating the finest cuts of steak in the safety of my home! Waaaaay too flash for a hunting knife.

    Then I'm thinking this might go nicely somewhere as well...once my ol' chum has fitted a handle and made a sheath...

    I like the Hamon work. Pretty cool.

    First 3 designs of the line for me, All by hand with files.
    The 2 smaller 1084 hunters are tempering as we speak and the larger Farmer/skinner is heading of for a professional HT as its 01.
    Quite cool this knife making malarkey, cant wait to blood one

    What are you thinking scale wise on these Nick? Nice looking blades...

    Top and bottom are a more traditional style blade so will go with some nice warm wood. Maybe stabilised burl or birdseye maple, hard stuff to get a hold of here. Thinking they will both get a dark forced patina finish as well.

    The drop point will be OD green linen Macarta and copper pins with a 800 satin finish.

    I say this but I will probably change my mind about 15 times before they are finished as I see another custom knife I fancy.
