Another post here reminded me that I have been wanting a leather working round knife made out of 52100. Could any of you recommend a maker that you know who:
1) would make/ enjoy making the knife.
2) You know his work, and the quality of knows his work and how well he knows how to in 52100.
3) knows how to make a leatherworkers round knife, maybe he makes his own sheaths so is familiar with the type of knife?
4) does not have a back order/ waiting list of a year or more.
Thank you
Colin

I think he is after a ulu

There are several makers, I would also try tradesectioin at Bladeforums.

I would use one of the makers that allready sells ulu knife :)

Hmmmm some one beat me to it huna?? Well that's cool Butch, if you make it to thin for him on accident (or on perpous:thumbsup:) keep me in mind, otherwise just put me on the list...but boy o boy I can only guess what your waiting list looks like right about now. :doublebanghead:

Hay maybe if you get some of that B52 you could make me one out of that?
