Okay , I'll be honest here . I've always thought most custom knives are rip offs if I'm honest , and dougster on this forum your work is amazing , but I've always thought it pretty pricey . So anyway to kill the hours of night lambing I thought I'd have a go at it myself !
Heres the result after a good 40 hours work .
what do you think ?
The blade is 12c27 scandi grind trapper style . 4mm thick .
The handle is stabilised spalted hawthorn with red liners and mosaic pins finished with oil .
I really like it and boy does it take an edge ! I've recently bought a falkniven for real work and its just as sharp as this !
I feel bad for thinking people were charging too much , I wouldn't sell this knife for £500 nor would I take on making one for profit . My works not a patch on most people's and they do it as a business ! So hats of to you guys ! And thanks for the inspiration !
