Hand Made knives for sale.  Lester ("knife maker" on the forum") asked me to post these. Sorry for the bad Iphone pictures.
He has many different shapes and styles available.  These are the ones I have had him make for me.  Lester will make any size or shape you want.  I have a set of critter skinning knives that are still packed up.  I will try and get a picture of those up soon.  I have had 3 sets of the skinning sets made. The set consists of 3 knives in one sheath.  One is a Dexter shaped beaver knife, one is a straight blade regular skinner and the other is a hooked blade for doing toes and detail work.  I just gotta dig them out for some pictures.  The following are just some that I had him make based on designs i wanted.  The larger ulu looking one was my moving away present.  I had been eye balling that one for a while.
He makes them out of his shed.  No stamped out pre-formed blades or handles.  They are made off of a homemade bellows system, heated with coal and hand ground, polished sharpened and finished.

A couple more that I had him make  - Sorry about the pictures, I shake alot and my Iphone pictures come out bad.

The one with the caribou shovel handle was for a paralyzed marine who just wanted a show piece.  Iphone pics don't do it justice

The fillet knife and the other one with the grooves in it were for my nephew who used them on one of his fishing trips while he was doing rehab at Walter Reed
