Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! So, Ive been into knives for quite a few years, I’m a hunter and outdoorsman. Like a lot of people, I got tired of buying knives that never were quite right for what I was looking for. So I bought some equipment, and started making my own. I’ve been dialing in my grinds and handles, started making kydex sheaths! I have been keeping my designs rather simple, similar to what bark river does, convex grinds, with mainly micarta handles and corby bolts. I like a rather stout blade with a thinly ground convex Edge, I find it cuts very well, even with thick stock steel. Most everything I do is heat treated by me in my evenheat oven, and cryo treated. Steels I’m mainly using are 3v,4v, vanadis 4e, 8670, M2 and Aeb-l. What I’m wanting to gauge, is what the current market is, what people are wanting. My blades are geared more towards hunting, skinning and general camp and outdoor chores. Just looking for general discussion and interest in designs. I hand make everything, I have no access to mills, or water jet, or anything like that. I’m in a small town with very limited resources. But I love making knives when I have the time!!
