I do have a small wait list on custom knives, around 6-12 months depending on the complexity of the project. (I complete 10-20 knives per year)
For those that do not wish to wait that long, please take a look at what is on my bench. This is what all of my knives look like after heat treat. Usually I need to refine some areas and grind bevels. If any of these catch your eye let me know, I can usually complete these in 1-2 months.

Ive got some slicers , pettys of all sizes and one big ol' 250mm gyuto ready to go in W2 steel. A couple outdoors knives in 1084, 1095, 52100 and some cru forge V (1084 with a touch of vanadium).

Selecting something here is the quickest way to get something of mine in your hands. You could call it semi-custom maybe, since I can still refine the profile, grind geometry, and select handle material based on the buyer's input.

I will also be featuring my re handles available here. (I have a few white#1 Gokos in the works so check back in a week or two)

If I get the other 250mm W2 and she finds out, can I move in to your shed? I can cook! And will bring my other knives to play too! :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Good stuff... something about the potential still left, but so much work out of the way, of a knife blanked out is a very satisfying sight indeed!

why I do this: It cost me the same to heat treat 4 Blades as it does to heat treat 20, so I generally try and send in a more knives than I have orders for. I also usually have a back up blade heat treated and ready to go should something go wrong with the original. Not to mention that alot of custom orders are followed up a friend of theirs wanting something similar.
But the main reason I do this , is because I am obsessed with knife design, and I start profiling out new designs and I just cant stop, I make more and more and more :)

thanks guys ... i finished these two up during the storm we had :) oh yes it was cold alright! too cold for wet grinding steel in the unheated shed thats for sure.

The spalted beech was kinda pricey but so unique i had to have it. I added up the amount in handle material I have spent since 2012....:/ thousands....haha

Just received this knife even better looking in my hand. Was some what concerned if the handle would be large enough as I have extra large hands, handle is perfect.

The distal taper is insane. I mean like a sewing needle point. Going to have to up my game in using this beautiful knife.

From the day Tim joined us that is the one area many of us stressed that would impress us, nice distal taper. He has impressed!
