A Year in The Works!!!, Is that a typical wait time to get a knife that is not in stock at the time you log on?
Most of bigger name custom makers have wait lists of 1-2yrs + before they even START work on your order.
For this knife i was working with a maker that already regularly produces semi-production type batches of knives. Many makers like them havd stopped taking custom orders just because its not worth the hassle and time away from regular production.
After I spent a couple months bouncing design ideas of a (very patient) Jon, the estimated lead time on the actual knife making was just a few months. It turned out to be longer, but I still consider it a bargain both in time and money.

The last couple of posts scared the bajesus out a me, i was kicking around a project in my head of a 240 mm Kiristuke in Blue #1,
if it regularly takes that long I may have to give up on the dream
That knife is gorgeous, Justin!
