    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.

    These people will hand make and sell you an exact custom copy of the knife they made for Lewis Gates( Last of the Dogmen).

    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.

    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.
