Beautiful work... if I saw one of those for sale, the only thing that would make them better in my mind, is that the maker's name and year made isn't marked on knife. cheers


A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

I really like these...and I would buy if I needed a custom piece like these. You sir have some talent.

1) I can't tell by the pictures of thickness of the blank, but they seem a little too thick. Maybe it's just an optical illusion.
2) Tooling marks on the blades needs to be refined. Some like them for the "raw" aspect, but a clean smooth shine sells
3) The resin based handles are neat, but I'm old school and like wood, bone, antler

Overall, I give these an 7.75 out of 10.

Beautiful job, you are definitely talented and applaud you for asking for criticism. I didn't care as much either for the blue handles, but that's just me. I am sure that is the favorite for many. Keep up the great work.
