Just got a pic of the new knife I had commissioned
This will be for my grandson when he gets old enough to appreciate.

That's gorgeous.  Where is it from and if you don't mind me asking, how much does something like that cost?

What can you tell us about the quality of the work?  Was it sharp out of the box?

Did you actually give him a sketch of what you wanted or pick one that he made before?

Thanks

Will tell you when I receive it, that's the photo that I got sent.
From all accounts and other peoples testimony the blades are sharp when sent and it includes scabbard
The knife is made from ATS-34 bar stock.
I picked a knife he had made before and then spoke to him about what changes I wanted made, the original one is smaller than the one I ordered this one is around 8" over all length with the blade 4".

A magnificent, elegant and unique gift.  Your grandson will be awed.  Very good, Grandpa, very good.

I was given my first knife when I was in the 5th grade, 11 years old, a Boker folder, by a neighbor man.  Mr. (Ken) Pennington.

When he gave it to me, he said  "A man always goes armed.  If you accept this gift you also must accept the responsibility to use it wisely and take care of it."

That was 55 years ago and it is one of the memorable moments in my life.

It was not near as beautiful as your grandson's knife, but it meant much to me. 

I carried it until it went missing from my locker when I was 20 and in the Army.

Good job.
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
—Patrick Henry

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

Nice knife..... but even better, the reason for having it made.



I still have my first knife, given to me by my grandfather when I was six. It is quite possibly the smallest folding knife I've seen, but it seemed giant at the time.
I still have it.
It, along with his gold pocket watch that he gave me before he died, ranks among my most prized worldly possessions.
"I expect perdition, I always have. I keep this building at my back, and several guns handy, in case perdition arrives in a form that's susceptible to bullets. I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

"When it comes to the enemy, just because they ain't pullin' a trigger, doesn't mean they ain't totin' ammo for those that are."~PegLeg

He makes some great looking knives. One reminded me of myself when I saw the size of the belly.  :-[
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington.
