    Knife maker referral

    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

    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) 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.

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