    These are some of the things i do.I customize factory knives specializing in Buck 110,112Case trappers,Russlocks,Hunters,and just about anything else in any handle material you can imagine.I do prefer working on the traditional style knives.Filework in several different styles.I do a lot of Case Sodbusters also with g-10,micarta,bone,even stag handles and filework if desired.I can reprofile and sharpen edges,polish and buff out scratches and handle /bolster dings.Ive recently been doing a lot of conversions on 2 blade trappers to make the single blades.Ive also done this with stockman style knives.Ive done a lot of work for members here and havent been cussed out or beat up as yet.;)Let me know if you have a project in mind.My prices are reasonable with a fast turnaround.

    I had Don work some old kitchen knives over for me. He does very good work at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend him.

    Just a quick video showing the work Don did for me on my Grayman Mega Pounder. Thanks again for everything! If your thinking about getting some work done I highly recommend Don. Awesome customer service, and great all around to deal with!


    Not sure how to get the video to embed in the post, but if somebody knows how, feel free.

    Mr. Seals,

    I have a case mini-trapper in CV, it wasnt the best model that came out of the case factory
    gaps in the liners, some blade wobble etc etc

    what would you charge to, remove the spey blade altogether (making it a single..like a slimline trapper i suppose)
    and just generally fix the gaps in the liner, and remove all blade wobble.
    filework isnt necessary but still extremely cool :D

    After 4 months of being out of work, i finally found a job and should start on tuesday, so money is a little tight, but it certainly cannot hurt to see what this costs.
    I do not have PM access on here, but feel free to email me ([email protected]) if your not comfortable posting price here.

    thank you in advance
