    Well these are customISED.
    The TL is by our good friend Esnyx in Jotoba wood. Beautifully done.
    The Grandaddy Barlow was an old shell handled junker I got for nothing.I contacted Glennbadd and sent it to him across the sea with a very old bone handle from a broken knife steel that belonged to my Grandad.
    Glenn did an astounding job building a new knife whilst retaining the age and character of the materials ....new pins and solid
    bolsters blend into this beautiful memento of my Grandad.

    Does anyone have experience with Steven Cocker of Sheffield and his knives?

    I've been following him and his work on Instagram and Facebook. His knives look great and it seems like he really makes them in the traditional way. Any thoughts on them? Good quality and construction?

    Thanks for any information!

    It is wonderful seeing modern knifemakers pay tribute to the traditionals!!
    Here is a Ken Erickson Jack - sole authorship!
    It looks like it's modeled after a nice Remington. Does anyone know what Ken's steel code "6" means??

    I don't believe "6" is a steel code, but I can't recall what it stands for. I do know that @ptradeco would know.

    @waynorth Ken's jigged bone knives look like they came straight out of someone's pocket from the '30's. Very very nice :thumbsup:

    I'm guessing the third pair is cross cut mammoth Dave. They make an excellent set, enough to sway my attention from the first knife with the exquisite engraving.

    Yes sir! @joeradza. There were eleven knives in that order, all handled in customer supplied mammoth. Lots of crosscut, but not all:

    It was a multi year project as the customer was specific about which damascus got used with which handle scale set. Some of the steel we waited a couple of years for. Best customer ever, a patient man. The only non damascus/mammoth knife in the order was that walnut handled skinner above. Its A2.

    A patient man usually knows exactly what they want.

    Those mammoth/damascus knives are absolutely stunning. Every single one of them.
