    UK made Knives


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hi, I've been lurking for a while now and like what I've seen so far so I thoght I would post some pics of my latest acquisitions.
    The first is a Bowie made form the outer ring of a ball bearing race with a brass guard with an ebony and brass handle with pewter spacers, Its dimensions are 415mm/16.33in O/a, 115mm/4.52in handle, 260mm/10.23in blade, 5mm/0.196in blade thickness, 42mm/1.653in from spine to edge. It was made by a fellow member of the British Blades forum known as bones61, and he supplied it to me unfinished so that I could finish it as I'd like.




    The second one is made by the same guy and is a full tang forged from Silversteel with Ivory linen Micarta, the dimensions are: 252mm/9.92in O/a, 122mm/4.80in handle, 130mm/5.11in blade, 5mm/0.196in blade thickness, 30mm/1.18in from spine to edge.



    I hope you like them as much as I do.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice looking knives. I just bought a knife made by JayGer's Custom knives in the UK over ebay. Have you heard of them?

    Do you know if the blade is 52100 ?
    I think it may well be 52100, I seem to remember the maker saying something about it.

    Beauties.
    I peruse BritishBlades occasionally, as others here do I'm sure.
    Ms Horne, awesome work. My vocabulary limits my ability to express your artistic ability.
    I'm not familiar with Mr. Guy Stainthorp's work, but I certainly do like it.
    There is a guy over on your side of the pond, a Bailey fellow I believe, who's work ain't bad either.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Dozier

    Guy stainthorpe makes some seriously nice work as does grace and are both in my limited experience good people to boot it always makes commissioning a knife a better experience when the makers are truly customer orientated .
