    Hey guys,

    Quick, I hope, question. Where would be a good place to look for some of the cheaper custom knives? I'm talking in the $50 - $80 or so range. I'm trying to do as much knife exploration as possible and this is one area I haven't really explored at all yet.

    50 - 80 dollars for a custom really don't see them priced like that too often.

    But it does happen occasionally, especially with smaller knives, neckers and the like.

    One good place to look is right here on Bladeforums in the Knifemakers for Sale area.

    Well you need to keep in mind that you will rarely find true custom knives (knives made to a customer's specifications) in that price range. But knives that are "just" handmade can be found on many sites especially the smaller knives like Rifon said.

    I agree with others in that you're not likely to find many custom knives in the $50-$80 range.
    You can find some lower end (some $50-$80) custom/handmade knives at Gun Shows. I've actually seen some hunters I was impressed with in the sub $150 range. And I'm not easily impressed.

    I have some young men in my shop here in Nicaragua who can make a nice forged blade in that price range if you are interested. They do a fine job and I think you'd be happy.

    There are handmades from known makers in the $80.00 range. Just just have to know where to look.

    In our past auction, that ended in May this year, we sold an Arno Bernard for $100, A Trice folder for $65, Howard Hill for $95.00, Ray Beers folder for $110.00, John Cross for $82.00, Carmon Damascus folder for $60.00, John Greco for $70.00.

    That didn't including shipping or the buyers premium though.

    Of course there were other more popular knives that brought quite a bit more.

    Forum rules prevent us from mentioning currently running auctions.
