    Default How would your dream custom knife look like?

    Imagine you get the opportunity of getting a custom knife. (Woodlore-style, Hunting, Fishing, etc..purpose of the knife is secondary)

    And by custom I mean custom from A to Z. Your choice of steel, blade shape and thickness, grind, handle materials, pins- everything.
    How would this particular knife look like?

    Have you ever come across a knife and thought: "man, I wish those scales were on a ... (insert) blade..that would be absolutely perfect!"?

    Do you already know/own your personal dream knife? Feel free to share your pictures!

    I decided to start this thread as a brainstorming-forum for folks who wanna get a custom knife but/and are still looking for creative suggestions.

    Post pictures or drawings of your ideal knife. Explain, why it would be so special for you and your purposes. What would be your favourite handle-liner
    combo?

    If we get enough input here this might become helpful for your next custom order, and eventually, also for the knifemakers.

    I have tons of "dream blades" but I'm fortunate enough to already own my top pick. That being said the number one tool that I've had my heart set on is a facsimile of a North Wayne Tool Co. "Thistledown" scythe blade, complete with laminated construction.

    Nice screen name, by the way. Nice to see a Rothfuss fan.

    Here's my version of my favourite fishing/ filleting knife.
    A sturdy full tang blade but with enough flexibility up front.
    A sufficient and solid fingerguard, which I miss with most common brands like the Martiniis- but I believe it's essential..esp. when dealing in slippery conditions.
    As far as handle material goes- I love wood scales, but on this one I'd go with some tanned Micarta and maybe flashy orange liners,
    so it won't get lost that easily in high grass or at dusk:
