    You know, I could turn this into a 10 pg Warenski thread, but that would be mean. So I won't.

    If money was no object, I'd make this knife for myself and use it to spoon out a lifetime supply of Matt Gregory's homemade red raspberry preserves.

    I’d have Tony bose build me a lockback stockman. 4” long. Main blade would be a clip at 1/8” thick with a nice long pull. The secondaries would be a wharncliff and a pen blade. But they would be reversed from standard stockman so that the wharncliff would open right handed. Those would be 3/16” stock. Some nice amber dyed stag and a double bomb shield. Perfection.

    Actually waiting on just about this exact knife from ryuichi kawamura hopefully sometime this month it’ll be finished.

    I would like to have a Bob Kramer chef. I also wouldn't mind having this years CAS/Lurquin collaboration from Blade.

    I zeroed in on THIS one many years ago as THE one. A variant of this was what drew me into Custom Knives. Saw it at my first NCCA knife show.

    The answer for me is easy, if I could find a Moran Damascus ST-24.

    There are a number of makers here that I would love to have blades from.....

    In addition, a fine vintage nihonto, something from Yoshindo Yoshihara and son, and something from David Mirabile....oh wait (sorry, couldn’t resist).

    :D


    Considering how badly I hoard it, it’ll likely be easier to get that knife, TK. :p

    I will openly admit that I am a jam-hoarder. In fact, today’s task is Concord grape. We picked them yesterday, at what I consider to be the finest organic Concord grape jam farm in the world. That will be the final batch for the year.

    Great choice of knife, btw, TK. :thumbsup:

    There are soo many makers on here that I'd really like to have pieces from, but I'd love something from Sam Lurquin someday.
