knife-fi? - Page 97

post #1441 of 1737

I decided to hold off on the fixed blades for now. So a stag handled Northfield Ben Hogan is on the way! Exciting. I love traditional folders. (Nearly swapped over to an Al Mar Eagle Talon along the way... maybe next month).

I dont know if you already found someone but i can without a doubt recommend Martin Swinkels, this fellow dutchman does excellent work with sheaths and he's a great guy to do buisiness with. Maybe he'll even modify the handle if you ask him politely.

Besides the kydex, his leatherwork is also amazing.

(And he has enough blades in his house to shift the earths magnetic field, a true heaven for knife enthousiastsredface.gif)

Agreed. I need to find someone like him in the US.

Found this guy, not nearly as nice. But function wise he does similar stuff. Cheaper too.

Really wanna drop some money on a knife like this, I know it will last me a lifetime, but its still a good chunk of change for a knife for me.

Lifter does great work, different style than the UK guy (I'll admit I like that style better) but great quality and durability.

You're a few hundred kilometers off, he's dutch :).

He has a lot(A LOT) of knives at his place so he may have the same knife as yours so you wont have to send him yours if its just for the sheath. And just a sheath send to the US wont cost that much i reckon, a knife send from the US to my place in the netherlands costs 12 bucks.

Do saws count for this thread?

 

Getting a Silky folding saw soon for playing in the woods :)

Probably a gomboy 240-10 or 210-10

Wha hey! It arrived!

 

The stag on the reverse isn't quite as pretty as the top face, but all in all - a great folder. Size is nice, lock is solid. Blade came pretty damn sharp (and on decent steel). I'm happy.

That is exactly what I meant. They only seems to sell the FRN models now.

 

Got myself a leaf full-flat grind one, lets hope the FRN one is not bad.
