Smoking Hole Knives

Dec 18, 1998
Does anyone have experience with these knives? The designs, although not wholly original are very nice and they seem to be near custom quality - especially the Warren Thomas collaborations.

I would like to get one of the carbon fiber models for a super lightweight back up.
I spoke with Arron Harris several times about his various designs, I especially like the "Mantis". I thought the prices were pretty high for a first time out. Smoking Hole is known for their custom guns but they just got into knives and as far as I know they are not ready to sell them yet, they are only taking orders. I am waiting for someone else to be the first and give an honest opinion. I admit it, I am to chicken to buy something unproven. Wish I could be more help.
