Thread: Matt Lamey Knives Pix

    Matt Lamey Knives Pix


    ADVERTISEMENT
    i'm a big fan of Matt's work...simple, affordable, no non-sense, hard working knives. to some they may be too simple, but i think they are just the type of knives that are not afraid to face any task.

    if you have any pics of Matts work, old and new please post them. i haven't seen any thread specifically depicting Matt Lamey's work.

    c'mon Santi...i know you got plenty...here are some of mine.

    Matt has a great design eye. In the last few years he's done really good work, esp. with regards to his use of hamons.

    I just acquired the one here:

    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=463205

    Please forgive the link, but I am not able to take pics of it right now. Still, even the pics that Matt took don't do this knife justice. It did not come with a sheath, so I get to have someone make one for it. Can't wait. I hope the sheath will be as awesome as the knife is.

    I have worked with 3 top sheath makers over the years, since 1994; Bob Schrap in Wauwatosa, WI, Chris Kravitt of Treestump Leather in New England, and Kenny Rowe in AR.

    I really recommend Rowe's Leather...they are about the finest that I have seen. Tell Kenny you want the thin welt like Steven Garsson gets.

    Best Regards,

    Good call, Steven. I have bought a number of the Treestump "ready made" pouch sheaths recently along with a couple of Sullivans and have been very pleased with both. But you are correct...a bad boy "hard user" like that needs a Kenny Rowe pinlock 4 position sheath

    Matt is doing some great work. I picked up this early one on the exchange recently. 9 1/4-inch 1095 camp knife. Hope to pick up one hot off the forge soon!
