Just a few. I have made hundreds so I have many pics, though regrettably I have not taken as many as I should have.

Those are very nice. What do you charge for the kitchen set, last picture that is three knives?

I had a website but couldn’t keep up with the volume so I let it go.
That particular kitchen set went for around $500. It was for a professional chef, and required high end materials and attention to detail especially the blade shapes. I can certainly go much lower in price but all knife pricing depends upon the materials chosen.

I agree with @Eric Revo, that blade design on the one with the spalted handle is very interesting. What would a ball park price for that be with stag scales and a leather sheath?

Assuming I can find some stag scales, most of my knives run about $100-125 on average. I have a catch for making knives to order however. I don’t do deadlines. My job takes me out of town frequently and for undetermined amounts of time. It could be two months, it could be next January. For those patient enough to wait I offer better deals. I make most of my knives in the winter and a couple in the summer. Otherwise I’m in the woods or on the water.

I’m open to hardwood or phenolic scales too.

I’ll look to see what steel I might have for a small run of those (possibly). Seems there is much interest. It is a small knife and is little but nimble in the hand. It could be classified as a caper or bird and trout knife. I made it for me to use for field dressing with minimal weight.

I’ve got a youngster in mind for this knife, and I think the size of it is perfect for her.

There is enough interest for me to get the steel for some of them. And this way you have nothing invested. I have an extremely similar one with some plain cherry wood scales available. It’s from the same batch with very slight differences. However, the interest is quite high on that blade. No commitment yet though. I’ll post a pic in a bit.

Here’s the other one. I just threw some cherry on it for myself and hit it with a little BLO. It’s not as nice but I made it to work. Cherry is oxidized since it was last years work but it is new and unused. No sheath as of yet.

All types. My specialty is the heat treat side of things. I have 440c, bohler n690, and D2 in stock. Maybe some 5160... I’m in Winston Salem. For chefs I like aeb-l or 440c.

I'd prefer the same belly as the spalted handled knife but like the point if you're going to be making a batch of D2 stuff.
