Default Knife makers on Tbh

Guys I know there are a bunch on here and I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes but I would like to have a thread where all of y'all post so I can eventually buy a knife from every maker on TBH. So far I have a chops, Stic and Kevin Smith knife but am looking to pick up one from everybody eventually. It may take me 20 years lol but I'll eventually get around to ya!


Mods if this in in appropriate fell free to delete but I couldn't find a place on my phone that had all the knife sponsors in one place.

Awesome! Hopefully more people will chime in and I will mark this thread and eventually buy one form each. I collect knives and buy several a year and am wanting to have one from each maker on TBH.

Was wondering is there a difference between a knife assembly-er (putting handles on blade blanks) and knife makers (forging a piece of raw steel into a blade and forming a knife) they all look nice.

I wish they had a knife makers section on here as well; other hunting forums that I frequent do have a knive makers page. I primarily do make hunting knives but I will build anything any one desires. Easy to find my work on the net if you do a search for Jank Custom Knives.
