How do you remodel a kitchen without adding a new knife. That one will be absolutely stunning, I'm sure. That is some cool pattern!
this is true too

thanks guys I'll post pictures when the time comes.
Well, Im remodeling my kitchen and to be honest I cant afford any more knives for a long time. I got lucky at work and got some money, and the dollar was really low when I ordered and payed.

4. The mails/calls with the maker is just heaven before and during the making
5. And the pics when its done is very very nice.
6. This makes the knife unique and one of a kind - something you took part in the making
Ive heard some makers also puts in a personal letter, this makes the knife even more unique!!!
For me a custom is not only a great knife, its also got a story to tell. So when the day come that I show my Burke to a friend, I can also tell the story about an ABS MS who involved me in his proses. How we discussed things, and how he came up with an idea after we discussed different solutions, how difficult it was to make it and so on. This is a really important story to tell. And its hard to find a knife with a story like this.
And I look forward to the day my knife arrives, but then again the best part is to log on to KFF and see a mail from the maker, even if its just a few words it just makes my day. Ive only had great experiences with my bladesmiths (devin, burke, marko and pierre).
I really recommend everyone to go for a custom, even if the price is high you get that special knife. Ive seen a lot of places that sells customs, but dont jump on this offers. Contact the maker and have a dialogue. Im sure the makers also loves this part of the proses, as they know they are making a knife for one that really admire their skills and passion.
So to order I just contacted makers on the forum by PT/PM/Mail - I live in Norway so I cant call. And due to my bad english its not always easy to explain all my expectations. I love working with Burke (well I know Im not making the knife, but at least Im involved) and recommend him to everyone that wants the best. I cant wait for mine to come to life So a wip mr Bill Burke would be awesome
Oivind, isn't that kinda like wrapping your own Christmas presents?
+ 1 on the dragons breath scimitar!! that would kick ass! Singe me up for one.
