Havin' fun, learning and putting up with Bastid.

After reading lots of great nominations in the awards forum. I am curious about the different categories and our responses. With all due respect to some very fine makers (including Mad Dog and Chris Reeve) I still consider a custom knife one that is made to the specifications of a customer in concert with the maker from the ground up. That is a little different from what could be considered a handmade knife that I might choose to by at a show or from a maker who has knives available for sale. Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated. Even if they are not the same as mine
