    That would be good. A hard to get model that won't be reproduced. They were very expensive new.

    Hey @Tahr. I have convinced @Ginga he needs a decent knife to match all his flash gears. I would think a Scandi would be a tough ask for someone from Ohingaiti to not wreck though.
    He likes my Gunny Hunter and a decent finger guard or choil would be best. S35V would be good steel as anything too hard and I'd be sharpening it all the time for him.

    I got John Worthington to make me a custom knife. He did me a Canadian special copy of BRK, CPM-3V but sized to suit my hands.
    His business is Ripi knives.
    He's on here.

    Good job!
    What steel do you use for this one?
    Or you can stay within 300 yards and keep life a lot simpler.

    Thanks mate,guy that got it is an ex venison butcher and is stoked with the feel, balance and performance.
    That one is in Sandvik 12C27.
    Next batch in 14C28.
    Can do them in anything really, 01 , D2 , 1095 HC .. time consuming but fun to make , get a good buzz from guys using them and enjoying them.
