    I'd probably have a long discussion with a customer maker about current collection and preferences...then tell them to surprise me.

    Probably DT given my recent experience there....and a peek at some of his work in person.
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.

    So many custom makers here it would not be hard to do - well the choosing would be hard, but hey that's why they invented the quarter right? Heads 1 wins, tails 1 looses. Off the top of my head I can't see myself owning a $1500 knife although I own guitars and amps worth more than that. Hmmm . . . I'll have to rethink my priorities I guess -

    If I lived ten minutes from Butch, I'd be there every day, just like that annoying neighbor kid who decides to crawl under your car on the passenger side, when you're underneath it on the driver's side reattaching a mount, in turn scaring the total crap out of you, causing you to drop a damned torque wrench on your face!

    Hey those are my knives! (Minus the micarta handle). But yes, those would be 2 of my top choices! And a Burke or rader as my American picks.
