    Custom folding knives

    Anyone here that knows a custom knifemaker who makes folding knives ?
    Can be classy or tactical since i have 2 ideas in my head.

    Just wanted to ask different knife makers to see who suits me best and what prices they all ask for it ...

    The ones I know are all on BladeForums.com, I suggest you look there.

    For a custom folder made to your design you can figure $200 to $400 minimum depending on the design.

    Also, just know most makers are going to lean towards frame-locks and liner-locks. Probably normal to high quality steels too.

    Yeah i know , but i can't find anything so far towards the design that i want... the only thing that came close was a one-off custom folding knife ...
    Or if anyone out there knows a company that comes close to this design ? :


    That's almost what i'm looking for. ...

    Ed Schempp has three new folding Bowie prototypes but doubt that they are coffin handled. At least the proto I saw a year ago was not coffin handled.

    I'll be seeing a thousand or so custom knives tomorrow, will look for something like the above.

    Varevinc, the coffin-handled bowie is generally considered an Arkansas tradition. I can all but guarantee that a maker from Arkansas makes something with features like this. Look up something like "Arkansas knifemakers" in google and you will be able to find some lists of ones to check out.

    I think that handle is quite beautiful, btw - looks like desert Ironwood to me but I could be wrong.
