I was thinking that I now need to start collecting Custom Knives.

I got an idea for a knife swap, I thought it would be a cool way to get knives from other makers and for other makers to get knives from me.

I will post up a knife that I currently have to trade and if anyone is interested in a swap just post up what you have with pics, or send a pm.
If this goes well maybe we can get a thread going just for this purpose!!


What I have is a Drop point skinner with patina.

3/16 - 1095 Heat Treated by Peters Heat Treat
OAL - 8 15/16''
Blade - 3 1/2''
Handle - 4 1/2''
Hand rubbed to 600 grit, with a patina
Scales are Cocobolo

This might be a great idea if people get in on it. I'd look forward to doing it. It's just that right now I have 2 for me I need to finish, and have 3 more that need to be built as gifts. Should I get all that completed in any reasonable time frame I'd be down for this. Your timing might be a bit off at the moment with Blade coming up. I'm sure a lot of guys are prepping for that over the near term.

Ok I'll swap.

One has to go into the Iron in the Hat next weekend but I can trade the other.

pattern welded O1 and 10xx knife. G11 handle. No sheath, but I'm going to learn how to make one this weekend at Indian George's hammer in.
