    Around what price will it be?
    Your usual handle-shape?
    What kinds of woods are you thinking of?
    Which steels did you think of using? And hardness on it
    Laser?


    And whatever questions you might think of, that people would like answered. I just want to collect it in one post. Cause this is real interesting.

    - A hair under $300
    - Same handle shape, a little more tapering to the front
    -Similar to my customs. ALL Burl Source woods, hand selected. I will mix up the bolsters and pins a little...
    -Steel is CPM 154 for now at HRC 60.5 to 61
    -Laser? Not really. Thin but not anorexic

    Right now, there is a 40mm flat at the heel.
    Bolster and pins... mostly stainless, but will toss in some copper, G10, maybe brass, or another wood. Whatever I decide to compliment the wood for that knife.
    There will be NO CUSTOM option on these.
    They will be sharp OOTB, but not taken to stones.

    Anything else, feel free to ask.

    Ages ago I bought a knife from CKTG that was out getting tuned up at the hands of someone else. I paid him directly (although they said I could have sent the payment to CKTG as well) and he shipped directly to me. I would think you would be able to work something out, especially for your Canadian customers. Just makes more sense then shipping that poor knife back and forth across the border.

    Yeah direct would be the best and not because of the custom fees but the amount of time that the items sit in wharehouses. It can take quite a while to see anything move through sometimes.

    To be honest, I agree, but I recently purchased a couple of knves from there and they shipped literally the next day. However, straight from the source makes the most sense.

    Can I say I live in Canada as to not buy one from CKTG???

    And if we sent you wood for one (from Burl Source) would you use it? Or does that fall under the no customs rule?

    Sounds like a complete winner with that profile. Will you be offering western handles only, or will there be a wa option on some?
