    Welcome to the Custom and Handmade Knives Section, your place to discuss knives that are handmade customs!

    ********************************************************

    This is NOT the place to:

    - Discuss or ask questions about how to epoxy handles
    - How to make knives from scratch, using a file and sandpaper
    - Ask what the best grinder is for the money
    - Ask how to sharpen your knife
    - Sell your knives
    - Offer your services, whatever they may be.
    - Ask questions about production knives or semi custom knives
    - Where the best place to buy belts is
    - Ask for warranty service
    - You should be getting the idea at this point.

    This section is to discuss completed or almost completed knives, custom knives. NOT production knives, not knives made by a machine shop overseas where there are 100's of that specific model. Just read a few threads, look, listen, pay attention, and follow the theme of this place. If it started life as a production knife, it probably doesn't belong here.


    *******************************************************************

    Rules, (pertinent to C&H forum- complete forum rules found HERE)

    -The place to talk about good or bad customer experiences with individual sellers, makers or dealers is in the GBU forum

    -Deal spotting- Yes, we know you found a great price on the Ninja Disembowel 4000 at SuperPriceMART. We don't care. We'd prefer you support the dealers who support BladeForums.com. As such, we don't allow deal spotting because otherwise the forums would be a quagmire of "deals" (real or imagined) posted everywhere, or unscrupulous people posting "deals" for non paying dealers. So don't do it.

    -Don't post images larger than 800x600 or spam images through threads. If something is large, be considerate and post a thumbnail and link to that image.

    -Don't talk smack about people in your signature file, or advertise your site if you aren't a paying member.

    -Attachments are a feature for paying members, by hosting them for non-paying members, you are hurting this site.


    If you break any of these rules, prepare for CONSEQUENCES

    Any threat of physical violence against a forum member, made via pm or otherwise, will result in an immediate ban. I mean it.

    A note on necromancing threads-

    a thread that hasn't been posted in in over 1-2 years, (depending on the nature of the thread and the nature of the new post in it) is likely to be locked upon necromancy.

    Please think of a way that you can start a brand new thread instead of resurrecting old ones, thanks.
