    What Knives Have You Gifted (or received)? Share your stories!

    My wife and I gave a Bushnub II (aka ‘cross knife’)/Runt combo to my brother and his bride as a wedding present over the summer. Picked up a leather stamp kit at BLADE 2017 just two days before we left for the wedding and put their initials on matching sheaths. Note: If you try this, make sure to practice on scrap leather first!

    The idea to gift fiddlebacks for a wedding came from a good friend, who gave this Runt/Patch Knife combo to my wife and I.

    I've gifted so many knives I can't remember them all. This one is something special to me because it's the first custom I've ever been gifted. It's also one of only two knives that I've ever been given and both were from my friend Andy Roy.

    This thread warms my heart. Its an honor to have y'all as customers, much less have you gift my knives. I'm so proud of this. Somehow it makes me feel like part of y'alls family for my work to have become a kind of family tradition. Thank you.

    Bob, it has been a really fun time getting to know you and your family. I'm glad you like that knife so much. Obviously it found its home.

    These are some of the knives Andy has gifted to me. The (it has no name) bushfinger look-alike was my high-school graduation/Army entrance knife. It's 5/32 COM 154, black micarda, bolstered. W/ natural micarda.
    The green jade, over black was my Christmas present last year. Andy was pretty slick with this one, during this time I was living with Andy and Leah. I would get to check out the personal collection. Well andy found out that I was in love with it. It is a true one-off and one that wont be going anywhere.
    The Bear Cub was a birthday gift, and the Mini-Muk was a dud. Both which get used alot!
