You might want to post a link; he might get some business from knife afficianos around here at ZS. I agree that Casey knife is over the top beautiful, but at least his price is comensurate with his work. The one above it is simply a bargain at $90. You'd pay more than that for some SOGs.
Yeah, hard to believe. There are some similar on Ebay, but they are just crap steel from Pakistan, etc. This guy and his brothers are local to my area, and come to the gun shows. (Harrisburg, York). Ok, just found his business card from the last show.
COMPANY: Thunder Ridge Knife
Contact: Billy Meekins

Curiously, they do not have a website!!!!
The steel is fantastic....sharp, holds an edge, etc. Yeah, I knew a little about custom knives and when I saw it was $90.00, I jumped on it. It came with a custom made leather belt holder as well.....and when I say custom leather, I'm talking good-smelling well made leather, not some crap. Apparently each person in the business has their job.....one person makes the damascus blades, another does the file work on the bolsters, another does the inlays, another does the handles, and yet another does the leather. I have some ebay-made crap, and this ISN'T it.
