How much for one like that in a horizontal sheath?
With a Damascus blade?

I'm ready for a custom made knife

Ray I would if I could, I don't have an associate sponsorship so I can't sell or do business in the forum. I didn't post them to try to drum up business. Been trying to get one they just don't have any openings?

I like this one also. Looks strangely like one I have.

I haven’t bought a knife in probably over a year for the first time in my life and this thread is not helping me on my addiction.

Lots of awesome art work in this thread. My knives are nowhere near this level of art. The knives I make are for daily use but even if I tried I doubt I could match some of these art pieces.
My 9" fillet knife has worked well on close to a 100 catfish and crappie and still razor sharp. The damascus was my feeble attempt for a mantle piece.
I do love the hobby. Something to keep me busy during my retirement twilight.

This my EDC neck knife. Forged from an old file. It came out of the temper this color and I decided not to mess with it.


This is a little pairing knife I made for my big sister's 60th B-day. It is also hand forged from an old file remnant. I was surprised that it would polish up so nice. This was my first attempt at sand casting a brass guard also.

These four sgian dubh were gifts for my wife's friends who are big "Outlander" fans. Still working to perfect my brass etching technique.


Whoever it was that warned me this hobby was addictive wasn't lying!

I really like the ones with wide blades and a drop tip. They are really nice for cutting when you have to hold your thumb against the blade
