    The edge of the tang is more polished than any knife I've ever owned. The tang! Nice attention to detail. They look great.

    This!

    I'm digging the shape of the blade in post #3. I would love to see it with some nice wooden scales and brass pins/lanyard tube.

    Excellent match on the stacked handle set! Beautiful work! I also just noticed the nice gentle curve from front to back of your knives, I really like it! Keep them coming!

    I just received my first knife from Tim - WOW! After drooling over it for 30 minutes I am very confident to say this is the best value for a bushcraft/field knife on the market. Tim's craftsmanship is simply outstanding from the sheath to the blade to the matching ferro rod. I am so impressed that I just ordered 3 more of Tim's beauties. I cannot wait to put it through the paces this weekend. Below are a few crap iPhone pictures (sorry for the messy desk) to brag a bit. The last show size with a BoB and Entrek Forester.

    Very nice, colors compliment each other very well.

    I just received my first custom a month or so ago, I've barely used it and already itching for another one, definitely going to keep Tim in mind for the next one!

    Very nice work.

    Down the road maybe it would be neat if you also offered an abbreviated logo.

    Loving the puukko.

    Definitely. There will be a few this summer. I just need to find time during the week, my job has weekends blacked out from May-September.

    No worries there. I don't buy things planning to leave them in a safe. No offence intended to anyone who does, that's just not me.
