    looks like I got a new project on my hands, thinking a cooking knife for Mrs. Loriendesign. Gotta do some forging!

    Boker is ahead of their time. They really are. Mine are well made and the heat treat is really good for a production knife.

    All of the major knife manufacturers should be scrambling to do a collaboration with Lorien Arnold.

    Oh man, why did you have to post this?? Now I have something new to chase. And they are made in my home state so now I definitely need to pick up a few. Curse you! :eek:

    Sorry, but I blame others in this sub forum (you know who you are ;)). Someone mentioned I should check our Liam’s axes and now I own 2 and have a few others on order. I’m quite impressed so far!
    Good luck with the hunt!

    I have to figure out how to smuggle one of these across the border. Silly Canadian interpretive laws

    I still love auto's, lock backs, and slip joints.

    I'm a sucker for folders with Emerson Wave-style opening mechanisms... When I carry a folder. Lately I've been enjoying a Spyderco Delica 4 as a general-purpose folder.

    Those LH axes are really, really good looking!

    I’d been wondering about that since we caught a glimpse a while back. Count me in for at least one if they ever become a public offering in some way.

    I was smitten by this blade in Frazier’s post and had to have one.

    Dude, I shouldn't have looked at his work. I have a soft spot for double-recurve blades and fullers...

    According to facebook people, some shops will disassemble and ship folders across the border in pieces in several packages. I haven't tried it myself as it seems like way too much effort and money (in shipping several parcels instead of one). There are very very very few folders I would go through that kind of effort for.
