    New Pig Sticker

    Saw a post on another board I frequent about a guy who makes custom knives, and I contacted him for some info.
    I told him what I wanted: matte blade, semi-tanto tip that would stand up to some abuse if necessary, small enough to be unobtrusive and carried horizontally in SOB (not over 9.5" overall). He said he thought he knew what I wanted and made me a knife.
    Here is what he made. This cost me $140.00 shipped to my front door. Lemme know what you think.





    He's making me another as I type this. I'm a knife, gun, and bike whore .

    Maybe one of the other members could lighten up the pics, they are hard to see.

    Slightly narrower handle. back of blade cut down a bit to bring it to a bit more of a point without giving up the durability of a semi-tanto, maybe a little larger finger groove. This knife is 9.5" and I am having him lose 1/2" off each end so as not to screw up the balance, but lose an inch overall. Guy making these is a real talented guy looking for different needs, so I let him get creative with knife #2.

    Newer Pics. This guy's name is Andy Sharpe and he makes a great knife. PM me if anyone out there wants his contact info. Sheath is kinda rough, but he told me it would be. He said he's aknife maker, not a leather guy.
    Perhaps one of our esteemed leather experts would be willing to accept some money from me to make a SOB horizontal carry sheath with a thumb break?

    Super nice... I have a buddy who "makes knives" This is the real deal though.

    Very nice looking knife-how long did it take to receive it once the order was placed?
