so he can create anything you design? thats giving me an idea.
Let's put it this way, if you have enough money... You can have any knife in any materials you want. There are a lot of good knife makers out there. The sky is the limit. In my case the depth of my pocket is my limit. Sometimes the cost is not materials but processes. Take ZDP-189 as an example... Great steel that takes a very good edge and stays sharp for a very very long time due to it's hardness. It's a japanese steel, not expensive but the hardness takes a lot of toll on grinding and shaping tools (belts and wheels). This means the maker spends less on materials but considerably more on tool maintenance.
