This is an example of a knife my friends friend makes. You can find more info at JBall on facebook.I am not a knife guy but have noticed I have been considering spending some serious money on some.
The first one is my daily carry. The second one is my primary knife when camping. I bought it as a throw away to use on things I wouldn't use my main knife on. But I have been very impressed with how long it has lasted. The third knife is one I was considering on amazon a few weeks ago. I also have a friend who is good friends with a blacksmith. The blacksmith was on the show where they make knives and swords and he won. I have talked to him a couple times about having him build one for me but haven't pulled the trigger because he is getting close to $1,000 for his knives now.
