Re: Wtb-custom knife

I order a custom from Dave McCroskey in Oklahoma about a month ago. The knive is razor sharp and very well made. It was his Elk serie made to order per your hand size, was lucky and got it in 2 weeks. He gives great discounts to N.R.A. members. www.mccroskeyknives.com
I think you have to hit the more button to see the knives.

Re: Wtb-custom knife

My father recently turned 70 and we wanted to get a custom knife made for him but then I stumbled on this website Barrytown Knifemaking - Home

In the end, my brother, father and I all made our own knives in the day. Awesome experience. My Dad was absolutley stoked with the present.

I realise it is on the other side of the world, but perhaps there is something similar over there.

Stu.

Re: Wtb-custom knife

What kind of price range are you thinking of ? If money is of little concern I'd buy a Bill Burke. His knives are functional works of art and hold an edge like no other. James Rodebaugh also makes a very nice knife at half the price of a Burke.

Re: Wtb-custom knife

I just had this built by a local man here in MO. He builds them in an old garage in his back yard. This was from an Elk shed I found. He stabilizes the handle (resin fills) for strength and hand forges the blade from many layers of twisted and folded over band saw blades. The blade looks kinda like a laminaed wood stock on a rifle showing layers. I think it is beautiful. I haven't used it enought to say how it holds an edge. But he says very well and I have seen him smack two blades together edge to edgr to prove it.
