    New Knife Received--This is why you don't rush a true craftsman...


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Greetings all,

    I posted how I had placed an order with Nick awhile back:

    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...ed-knife-order

    Got the knife last week. Its a heavy duty variant of the Sierra Scout built to my specs. I dub the H.O.S.S. (Heavy Ordnance Sierra Scout). I was going to call it the Burley, Overbuilt Sierra Scout, but my ego doesn't go quite that far.

    Basics:
    - 7 x .25 inch differentially heat treated 01 blade,
    - Scuplted, ultra comfortable blue/black G10 handle scales with red liners,
    - Trade mark custom fitted leather sheath with fire steel loop.


    See the photos...my words alone wouldn't do it justice. Fit and finish are about as perfect as I think can be done.

    I couldn't ask for a finer camp knife. It is, in a word, SUPERB.

    Quality is ALWAY worth the wait.

    If you like Mr. Allen's work, shoot him an order soon, you'll be EXTREMELY glad you did.

    That flat out kicks ass! Nice design, and of course nice work from Nick. I think that knife will be up for any backwoods adventure.

    WWWaaaayyy less than it should have. As I don't know Mr. Allens pricing schedule taking into account all the variables, you should contact him directly for a specific quote on what you have in mind. But I think you'll be surprised as what his blades cost when you look at the craftsmanship and quality of the materials.
