Maybe $1200. That's probably more accurate. I mean, $36 can really grow in 2 years, ya know?

Pretty cool thread! I have one nice knife. I carried it for a day then put it up. I didn't wanna break it or anything. I just carry one of those husky knives from home depot. They work the best for me.

This is a wonderfully imaginative One-of-a-Kind knife by Warren Osbourne. I have long been a collector of traditional gunstock pattern knives and, over the years, I have commissioned several renown custom knife makers to build, what would be for many, the first they had done of this pattern. When commissioning these pieces I always told the makers they could be very traditional or use their imagination to come up with something special ...... this is certainly something special! This knife features Mike Norris SS Damascus blades & bolsters, incredible Mammoth Ivory scales, bullet escutcheon & red gold pins. Warren has this unique slip-joint displayed on his website. (This is my dad writing this stuff, I just copy and paste. I am by no means a collector...he's been doing this longer than I've been alive.)

Hope you all (lived in GA for awhile so sometimes say "you all") are enjoying my Son's posting of my knives. Here are some pics of the knife I have carried and used every day for the last 6 months or so. It was made for me by Michael Burch [Burchtree Bladesworks], it is a one-off piece built from one of Michael's base models with changes made to meet my specifications. It is a frame-lock flipper which uses the patented IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) to provide a great flipping action; fires like a rocket! The blade is 1095 differentially hardened [notice the Hamon line].

One of Jess' classic models, the Baby Horn. This piece is handled in Remington Bone which is relatively rare on Jess's knives. Serial # 286. Jess makes very few knives anymore and only attends one show were you have to draw to win the right to purchase one of his knives. His knives are all but certain to continue to increase in value as they have been doing now for many years. Not bad for a $2950 knife.

And now, for something completely different! Yeah this is different but it caught my eye and is a fun piece. The maker is Sakurai Kazuyuki from Kounan City, Japan. He, his knife making business, goes by Hustleking and he calls this piece “Lollipop”. It is a sheath style knife. The remarkable thing about this knife is how creative it is in it's total look and presentation and the use of Thread Art within its construction. The blade is Devin Thomas Stainless Damascus.

This one is cool because the entire handle area is threading, if you look closely, you can see the pattern

This is Jerry Halfrich's Medium Lock-Back Ultra-light model, a slip-joint with half-stop, the blade is CPM 154 CM, handles are Carbon Fiber the pins are SS this knife has the wonderful "walk and talk" that Jerry is known for. The knife is razor sharp. This is a great lightweight carry piece and elegant in it great lines and simplicity. Jerry's wait list is now in excess of two years.

why yes, yes he does.

Jody Muller is a rising star in the custom knife world, he has obtained his ABS (American Blade Smith)Journeyman Smith standing and one of his knives won Best Art Knife at last years Chicago Knife Show . All of his knives are one-of-a-kind sole authorship. This gentleman's Art Knife features beautiful Mammoth Ivory scales, an intricate mosaic Damascus blade, engraving with 22k gold inlay and a 18k gold thumb-stud. When I first saw this knife I said wow to myself then I picked it up and noticed the engraving on the back-strap and filework all around and then wow became WOW!

Bob Loveless dagger made in the late 1980's with engraving by the late Dan Wilkerson. Double Nude logo, Micarta handle, signed sheath. Bob Loveless is an icon within the knife making world, anything similar you've seen to this "look" was developed by Bob Loveless. He is one of the few makers who's knives are base price around $10,000.

This elegant gentlemen's wharncliff comes from award winning Knifemakers Guild member Stan Wilson. This knife features beautiful white Mother-of-Pearl with lots of color, a matching pearl thumb-stud with a 24k gold plated post, rakishly styled bolsters of Eggerling damascus, 24k gold plated handle and pivot screws which are file-worked, fully file-worked liners and a S30V wharncliff blade, that's a lot in one package.

Here is a great custom knife from Earnie Emerson, his Persian model. This knife came from the Emerson lottery at the 2009 Chicago Custom Show. Great backstory to this knife; all of the knives intended for the Chicago Show lottery got mis-routed and didn't make it to the show. Not wishing to disappoint his fans Ernie pulled knives from his personal stash in his safe, knives that had been put away over the years for his family. The knives from the Chicago drawing were all hand-picked examples of the best representatives of various models so you know this is a great piece.

Emile Drouhin is an old school French knife maker. He is best known for his elegant Tortoise shell knives, especially small unusually shaped multi-blade knives. His knife making legacy is not being passed on to a next generation and, being that he is in his 80's, there are not going to be many more of these gems becoming available. This round six-blade knife is his most famous and sought after design. This beautiful handmade Tortoise shell knife contains a serrated main blade, a plain edged blade, tweezers, nail file, bottle opener/cap lifter and scissors. The handles are made of genuine tortoise shell and the knife comes with its CITES certificate verifying it is legal tortoise shell. The knife also features a small 4 3/4" silver safety chain. Blades are ATS34, fittings are 416SS

This is about as small as a Silver Dollar, and it's worth $825.

Been busy as all hell these days, I mean really busy. Got some time off this weekend, figured Id post some knives.

A beautiful example of Scott Sawby's "tanager"' model featuring engraving by Ray Cover Jr. with a golden sun and moon, presentation grade black lip pearl, an ATS-34 blade, 416 stainless frame and Scott's patented "self-lock" locking mechanism which gets tighter if you try to close the knife without pressing the lock correctly.

I RETURN

Now with more awesome.

To start:


The Dinosaurs Art Knife was created through the combined skills of three masters of their crafts. The knife is a Tom Overeynder model 15 lock-back inter-frame with 416 Stainless fittings and Premium Dinosaur Bone inlays. The blade, heat treated to a 59RC is crafted from Bertie Rietveld’s "Dragon Skin Damascus" completed with a beautifully etched blade and decorated with a fuller. The engraving, with 24ct Gold boarder, is by Master Engraver Ray Cover Jr.
