12 days of Xmas

ok, it's more than 12 days before Xmas. But Vespa is running short on Xmas funds, so here's another bump to raise cash. Pls help ask fellow knifeknuts.

1. Marfione Anax NIB/LNIB - USD750 via paypal.

2. Spyderco Domino with Casey Lynch ti deep carry clip NIB/LNIB - USD220 via paypal.

3. Steve Kelly Titanium Sushi Stix NIB/LNIB - USD150 via paypal.

4. Combo of all 3 above - USD1050 via paypal [big big savings]

5. CRKT Ikoma Fossil PE 3.3" blade NIB - USD60 via paypal

6. Shirogorov F95 M390 with jimping and two-tone blade, carbon fibre inlays, new from 2015 Moscow show, probably (never opened it up) has the grooved ball bearing track too (like in the earlier shiros ). This M390 jimped version is rare and not easy to find. NIB - USD900 via paypal

7. Hinderer Handground Custom Spearpoint (buyer AWOL so here it is again) 20CV, non-flipper, Gen 3. Rare long and deep swedge. MINT - USD1280 via paypal.

8. Big Chris huge 12.5" bolo, CPM3V, HT by Peters. Used but excellent condition - USD550 via paypal.

and 2 stones:

9. Naniwa Superstone #2000 (yellow), used but still at least 50% - USD40 via paypal.

10. Naniwa Superstone #200 (white), used but still at least 85% - USD45 via paypal

11. take both stones for USD75 via paypal. (they are $110 and $85 respectively if new)

I may not respond if it's a low ball offer although Vespa is generally friendly and cordial and gives everyone the benefit of doubt.

Meet up to collect around bukit panjang or some agreed place.

Thanks.

You sure that's a vibrating knife? Looks like it heats up not vibrate. A vibrating serrated knife would useful though.

yeah, they have that - it's called a reciprocating saw. They use it to cut up frozen meat if they don't have a bandsaw at the butchery

Custom Knife Makers

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone has been having a festive December.

After my search for custom knives i realize many makers don't actually sell direct to customers but instead sell their pieces at shows or through dealers. So getting a knife to your specification is terribly difficult.

Hence, our of curiosity, are there actually knife makers out there that will make you a knife based on the customer's design and specifications?

Yes. I've had customs made from David Clark. Great knife maker... Knives were made to my exact specs. There have been others here who have had custom builds commissioned by other makers. It's all about finding the right makers. Of course, top tier makers don't take custom orders. However, there are many other makers like Steve Skiff, Jason Clark, just to name a few, who do.

The pics I've posted of the knives are somewhere in this thread. Feel free to pm me if u r unable to find them.

@thebusted

Steve Skiff doesn't do custom these days, IIRC. And his books are now at 18months.

You want knives made to exact specs? you have to find either a maker that hasn't found his footing (so that means you will eat some risk) or will charge alot. When you're making one-offs, there's a lot of prototyping and R&D time and materials involved.

Fixed blades are easier - there are many makers who may take commissions for one-offs.

Most popular ones, their books are closed. Up and coming-- as Mamba/ Vespa said, you need to eat some risk.. Hence if you do spot one.. do some research.. especially if u see them on Instagram-- go and see who has gotten their knives. Message and ask politely and then draw your analysis. Some customers knows about their knives, some don't -- so I always try to read in between what they say...

Most time people are oriented to US knifemakers.. so more of these are overwhelmed by demands. Personally I prefer Russia, Eastern Europe and South Africa... you might first need to dig around a little more and sometimes language is a thing to overcome when communicating initially...

Last year I searched out a Bulgarian maker that uses seldom seen Vanadis 4E for my fixed camp knife.. This year Xmas pressie to myself - Custom leftie from Poland.. in my fav duck-poo green stabilise wood with matching pivot in my fav category of utilitarian blade shape in also what's one of my preferred steel, Elmax.

Hmm.. I should have ask for a black blade.. then again I hate coated blades

Thanks Mamba, Vespaguy and Anvil Den for guiding this young one in the knife scene.

I think what Im looking for aint exactly one-offs but more off choosing the exact materials i want on the knife and where these materials go. Even then, it's pretty difficult to find a maker who does that. Most usually sell through dealers or auctions.

I do suppose to search for these lesser known knife makers, one must look through knife forums?

Anyway nice christmas present Anvil Den
