    You and I both haha. Sometimes you have to bite it though. Bernie has a quick turn around though for a custom maker.

    Don't fret the wait default. The best things in life are worth waiting for. I've waited several months on a knife before. Believe me, if it's what you want, it's worth the wait.

    Thats my mantra as well, good things come to those who wait, but some of these guys out there have like months in turn around times.

    What does a guy have to do to get a woodlore knife in queens NY, lol.

    finding a woodlore/bushcraft knife in a store anywhere is going to be difficult.

    For knives in general, I deal with www.knivesplus.com

    I just ordered (and received) a knife from Blindhorseknives. From placing the order to it being in my hands was one week, which is outstanding considering that I live in the Caribbean.

    Blind horse makes a bushcraft style blade but it is not a scandi grind. Right at a hundred bucks.

    they are making a new blade called the Pathfinder that is scandi grind, if that is important to you. Not sure when that will be available.

    You gonna set some figure 4 traps in washington square? debris shelter in central park? :)

    Yes Jaat13 is in the US, he is in the midwest to be exact. His work is excellent. Look under the thread "my latest project knife" in the edged tools section. He also does excellent leather work and his pricing is VERY reasonable for the quality you get. Also Bindlestitch of Turley Knives does excellent work and is another forum member. Pm either of them and tell them what you're looking for. I will personally recommend either of these knife smiths.

    Bindlestitch's knives are top shelf check him out for sure! He helped me tremendously when I started making knives and quality is #1, I sure owe him!

    Zen, those Fiddlebacks are sweet! I've seen quite a bit of his creations! Top notch as well!

    sometimes called a 'safe queen', an item that is too nice to use. you don't want to lose it or mess it up so you keep it in the drawer.

    Believe me, Mac's knife is a drawer queen by choice, the Turley or Jaat knives can handle anything you throw at them as long as you remember they are knives and not pry bars or screwdrivers.

    Lets beat that baby handle deep into a bur oak. Just kidding, but I do think it could handle it. I can't wait to see all of the great knives and their makers.

    Ia,
    Are you gonna bring that big recurve of yours? I'd love to take a gander at that if you do.
    Later,

    Had it made for me in the early 90's. A fellow instructor named Paul Zinsmiester crafted it.
