My uncle makes knives (stoneycreekforge.com), so I arranged for him to make a knife for my dad for Christmas. Wasn't cheap, but totally worth it! The specifics: (regarding the wood, when questioned my dad said mahogany was his favorite, my dad is a custom millworks and mouldings expert by trade) Let me know what you think! Sorry for so many pics, but there's just so much detail, I was trying to catch it all. In case it's not clear, this engraving is down inside, this is a pic with the blade out.
