    Default Any knifemaker out there who makes blades from a custom drawing?

    Hi folks!

    Ive done a lot of research the last time and now Im after a blade with my special specs!
    Drawing of the blade is already finished:



    here some OA specs (the details will be bespoke when all other is cleared):
    blade: 90mm - nice finish on the blade
    OA length: 190mm
    thickness:between 4mm and 5mm (what ever is in stock)
    steel: O1
    hardeness: 60HRC
    grind: FULL convex grind - up to the spine in one go and down to zero on the edge (like the Bark River Knives)

    If there is any maker out there which is able to do this please let me know to get in contact for all details and price!
    I will send the drawing via post so that the outlines of the blade is no problem!

    I will try to make myself a handle and sheath .....only need the blade! Hope there is anybody out there who can help me!

    thx and all the best
    Mike

    Stuart Mitchell is the only maker I have first hand experience of with that grind, but there are some great makers on here apart from him that can do a splendid job (FYGT and Rob Evans to name a couple). Here's mine...

    Is this a secondary bevel on the edge? Or a flat grind with a convex bevel?

    fgyt makes some fantastic stuff and his attention to detail is outstanding, i would recommend him, but driftwood walkers knifes, are pure things of beauty, there are many makers here and on bb, that make some outstanding knifes, and allot of them are very reasonable
