Few more on my site. I have only made those two of this model so far, but I have three more currently in the works.
That is a great looking knife. If I had the cash, I'd order one now.
So many knives, so few pockets... :)

Those are some really pretty knives. The deep groove jimping looks great.

It looks like these are more of gentleman's knives because on a couple of them, it looks like your hand could slip forward towards the blade if you were using them hard.

Great looking dress knife. It looks like you designed the clip less for a horizontal pocket and more for a vertical pocket.

These look like knives I would get instead of a Sebenza or Strider. Really impressive work.
Ask me where I got my awesome SUPERHAWK!

More like Mid-Cal now

Sooo true! Me personally, if Im going to pay $300+ for a knife, its going to be a custom job that very few people have - and its going to have a Spyderhole. Id rather do this than by a Sbenza - even though they are phenomenal knives - for the money, I want something more unique. Im just trying to figure out how to justify one of Brad's knives in terms of timing and how to tell my wife... :eek:

Hey Brad, you should send me one for, uh, R&D testing!
