Custom made Knives... any interest? (with some pics)

I'm going to be making more knives soon so I can get some money together for Christmas and other project stuff.

Knives would have pre made blades, handles would be custom. I can do slab sides for full tang knives and "Bowie" style for hidden tangs (the simplest being I take a block of wood, drill it and mount it on the blade.... more advanced would involve colored spacers, wood, bone/antler and even metal spacers).

It looks like I may even be able to get the tools to do kydex sheaths, otherwise I will be going with pre made leather sheaths (they are nice) that I wet form to the blade and then stain. I may even have some stamping on them (no tooling yet).

Would anybody purchase something in the $100+ range?

This isn't a pre-sale..There is no list... I'm not taking down payments or any money... just wanted to see if any of you would be interested in purchasing (and no I will not hold you to it and call you names if you say yes now and change your mind).

This is my newer hobby... I enjoy making knives much more than carpentry. Anyways... pics later (a couple months probably) as I get some in hand for purchase.

Here's a very simple sample of what I can do....



Newer knives will be much nicer as I learned some tricks and gained confidence on that one.

I would be interested. I don't have any 'quality' knives, just cheap ones.

But I would definitely be interested in seeing more samples of work, if you have any.

I would defintely be interested in this. I'm looking for an Xmas gift for my Uncle who is so damn hard to shop for. This would be perfect!

Keep me in the loop!

I'd be interested in having a custom made knife for my everyday carry blade. currently I use a spyderco assisted folder but I think a knife like what you're proposing would be great. I'd want a bowie style with a sheathe. I wonder what the issues would be with shipping cross border though

Falcon.. I don't know how much of a pia it would be, but we would have to nail it down before I made one for you.

Sean... I will see how quick I can get things together. I know I need to make one for pillage and one for my wife.

Rover, No more samples at the moment.. the ones I made pre kids were never photographed. I have other photos of the Scandi that is posted above.

Sean, I will keep you in mind.

Also.. if people wanted just the knife I can direct them to folks/shops that can do really nice kydex and leather work, some who are members here. My sheaths will be pretty basic for now.

You shouldn't have any issues shipping a knife to Canada as long as it isn't of a prohibited type. (Push blades, spring-blades, gravity knifes, butterfly knives, etc.) Fixed blades that are obviously knives aren't really restricted for import. Apparently we can actually have a few that are illegal in the US. Cane swords anyone?

Not interested in buying a completed knife, but I may steal your idea to make a few for myself. Making knives and even swords has been something I've wanted to do for awhile, but never got around to setting up a forge. Simply buying the blades and finishing them sounds like a reasonable compromise.
