Any one know if there are any dealers or individuals in NYC that carry a woodlore clone knife?
Good luck with that one haha. I don't know of any makers near there doing any. Trust me I have looked haha. Bernie Garland will get you sorted in no time if you need one.
yeah, i was afraid of that. I just have this thing that when i buy something i need to walk out with it. its just hard to wait and wait for something to arrive.
thanks for the link i may look into it.
You and I both haha. Sometimes you have to bite it though. Bernie has a quick turn around though for a custom maker.
are we talking weeks or months?
Weeks or less...Send him an email and that Old SkogKniv sent ya haha.
i just mite do that thanks
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.
One of our members here does a woodlore clone. Check out Jaat13
ill look into it, is he in the US?
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?
yeah i have heard of them before, not my cup of tea but thanks.
im going to camp out in front of city hall, set up a hammock and start carving some wood. i wonder how long before the laser sites come down on me. lol.
Trying to get any useful tools for our type of hobbies whilst in the hoplophobic center of the urban matrix, well that sounds like the impossible dream <g>
I actually knew what that word ment being greek and all. All dreams are possible, all you need is the internet and money. lol
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.
yeah thanks he actually PM'ed me. we may do some business together.
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!
Go with a Turley knife or Jaat13, you cant go wrong with either. I have a beautifull drawer queen woodlore clone that Jaat13 made for me
thanks for the advice, by the way what does drawer queen knife mean that's the second time i heard that phrase.
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.
got it thanks
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.
I'll pop her cherry at the meet lol
I'm holding you to that , Mac.
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.
Are you gonna bring that big recurve of yours? I'd love to take a gander at that if you do.
If you don't WJ will!
IA, where did ya pick that recurve up or did you make it, have it made?
Had it made for me in the early 90's. A fellow instructor named Paul Zinsmiester crafted it.
Looking forward to seeing it as well!
