    hey ll. jut wanted to clarify. the thinking of something new quick comment wasn't regarding my original order...that's definitely a keeper. i meant that i better think of a new idea so that i could post it in this thread before the contest ended (done!).

    sometimes, i'm hard to understand.

    Ok I got it now. It's much more likely though that it was a comprehension problem on my side, as I am not a native speaker

    P.S. Your steak knife design makes me want to eat steak NOW.

    Hello everyone!

    I'd like to get into this!

    First of all I have to say: I have always been an admirer of JK's work, but just never had the cash to afford a custom made knife.
    Since I got into knifemaking myself (have made 3 blades so far...) JK's designs have always been inspiring for me. The simple and clear lines are something I really dig.

    This design started out with a knife I recently built, (link to a pic) because the shape handles great and it's a perfect user. Then I tried to manipulate the form of the blade and handle into something I'd like to call an "hommage" to JK.

    Here it is:

    Total length: 7 3/4"
    Handle length: 4 1/4"
    Blade length: 3 1/2"

    Please comment!

    Best regards,
    Murphys Law.

    I love the style of JK knives, hopefully I'm going to have a custom made soon and I'll be keeping you in mind. For this contest, I'm going with an EDC/utility with a 3" blade, 7" OAL. I came up with this design completely on my own, so I apologize if it looks similar to any other entries. I'm not copying you, I promise!

    You can change your design anytime before the contest ends, if you want to.

    Hmm I may have to do this. Only because I was doodling in my math class today and I came up with something I really like.

    I've never tried designing a knife before. It is harder than it looks!

    Here is my attempt.



    Overall Length 7.4"
    Overall Height 1.5"(If the knife can't be angled like it is in my pic for measurements, let me know and I can modify my design. Don't want to break the rules.)
    Blade height is 1"
    Blade length 3.5"
    Blade thickness 1/8"
