    On a side note. Last week I stood next to a beat up butcher table with a tiny ass belt sander. Reving it up. Felt like a bad idea. I googled up a custom shop and they ran it under their 60 inch wide drum sander. Best money spent. Look at this work surface!!! I saved this old table from our family grocery store. I had it stored 20 years. And it was in the store when I was a tiny kid.

    Nothing beats the look of old lumber!

    If anyone is interested in a custom knife, let me know!

    How much does something like that cost? I'd be interested if I could afford it haha. I know custom knives are definitely not cheap.

    Thank you!

    mjbtaco -- It all depends on the materials... that smaller one is about $120 in materials... I would sell for around $180... maybe more to include shipping. If you want to pick out materials and blade type from Jantz (for example this blade: http://www.knifemaking.com/product-p/ss633.htm?CartID=2. With Walnut handles, brass bolsters and pins) I could make it! (p.s that knife would only be about 80-90 dollars).

    They have some amazing Damascus blades.. that are a bit more expensive, but they also have all your hunters, gutters, Tanto blades, Bowies, daggers, kitchen knives and more.

    I am relatively knew to knife making, but that just means I put more time into each knife!

    I've done one folder! I get the base blade and handle, then we can customize it with different thumb screws, different handles and pins.

    I gave it to my sister.. give me a little bit and I will get some pictures.

    On a side note, I am still in school, and I will not be able to pump one of these out every few days. If you are interested... it will take a little time to figure out exactly what you want.. and then for me to get the materials will be about a week. After that, it depends on the knife and my life :)rofl:)

    I think a little clarity is needed.

    He's assembling knives, not making them. Assembling pre made parts and fitting them together, making a handle isn't what I'd ever suggest is knife making.

    For those who actually make knives, saying those are custom made or even in the realm of knife making is a little dishonest. Those knives are like building model cars. The pieces are there, you're just putting them together.

    You did that well so far as the pics show, but a custom knife maker you are not and you shouldn't claim to be.

    I do admit that may have been a little misleading, my apologies... but I have clarified it with the people who are interested.

    With that... have you ever "assembled" a knife? While, yes, you can just glue the pieces together like a model car, any respectable knife "assembler" puts their heart and soul into their work. I would argue that I am making this blade into a knife–therefore, knife making. Would you all love your knives if they were just a blade?

    Regardless, call it what you may, I am not making these blades.

    Nothing wrong with trying to make a few bucks selling those, but be a bit more up front with accurate info.

    Nothing personal.

    I have assembled knives and I've made knives, and I'm not a custom knife maker. The amount of passion you might put into assembling a knife kit doesn't make you one either, certainly not with the way you described yourself earlier.

    Just be clear, is all. It isn't easy to make knives, it's certainly far more difficult than buying a knife kit and putting it together with a little attention to detail.

    You don't actually make anything, except maybe some wood handle scales - I guess that makes you a carpenter as well. ;)
