    How does the copper hold up as a bolster. I like that look

    Pretty well, but it makes the knife a bit heavier.

    I ordered a custom Puukko back in 2017. Paid in full.

    Still has not been delivered.

    I send e-mails every few months asking for the knife I paid for or a refund. I hear nothing back.

    This has been the worst custom-anything experience I've ever had.

    Rotte,

    The warning signs were clearly there to see back in November 2017 when you placed your order.

    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/custom-order-books-are-closing-moved-to-dec-1st.1533063/

    It appears that your enthusiastic replies in that thread would be very different today. I feel for you and hope you get your knife or refund soon.

    It is always a sad day when another formerly loyal customer gives up and joins the camp of the permanently disenchanted.

    Phil

    There's a Puukko for sale on AA Forge right now...

    Not sure what happened but I sure thought his custom order list would be finished by now. I just assumed since there were no more updates and APRIL 2019 has long since come and gone, everything was up to date. FWIW, I ordered a knife from Adam in NOV, 2017 and recieved it in MAR 2019. He said 6-8 months and it took 16 months, but he did get it done.
    Hopefully, he will see this and respond and more importantly, get your knife to you as promised.

    It looks like he dropped his Instagram account, but he is very active on Facebook. Perhaps you could reach him there.

    I am approaching the two year mark on a September 2017 order and another from November 2017. Currently, I am waiting on a refund. In June I was told a refund would be granted.

    Still waiting on a July 2017 custom Ridgeback order, had been quoted a possible completion by the end of May 2019, still no word or public update now in August. So, no, the custom order list has not been completed.

    I've been more than disappointed and annoyed to see that Adam has sold dozens of Puukkos since I ordered mine in 2017. The initial reason for the delay was that there was a shortage of 52100 steel. I could understand that initially, but now that excuse is lame. Especially as attempts to contact him by e-mail have gone mostly unanswered. I think once I got a reply saying that AA couldn't [be bothered] to reply to individual customers.
