thought about doing this myself, but let's be honest, I don't have time or the real skill for this specific craft...
anyway, my brother in law has his 50th coming up next year, and I'd like to commission having a knife made for him in a classic hunting style, probably a drop point in a good steel or damascus, and with antler handle. I'm not looking to spend over £150 total, but I'd still like something decent. I have plenty nice antler I could provide blanks for too.
I'm not sure if anyone on here who makes knives that were interested could chip in with any pictures of what they might be able to do within (ideally below) my price point.
leather sheath is no problem, just the knife.
similarly, any ideas how one could add a 'touch' to make it a bit special would be appreciated.
my brother in law is a simple guy, no bs, doesn't need fancy, but would appreciate something really nice and home made. steel must be top class though as he won't use anything that can't hold a razors edge blade.
maybe given my price point I need to build it myself, but it would be good to have some input into this subject as personally I'm not expert on the subject, my hunting knife is a 2.5" pen knife with antler handle I found stepped into the mud a number of years ago..does the job though, and thin enough to 'stick' a roe in the neck, so get's top scores in my book.
