    What kind of price range would a knife like these fall in to. If your at liberty to say of course.

    This guy sells at a little over half of what such a knife would sell for! He would rather sell 2 now than wait 6 months for 1 to sell!

    The first knife went for 90 US dollars, and the other 2 went for 107.75 US dollars each!

    Very nice. But what's a neck knife?

    It's a knife your wear around your neck in a string / whatever. Remember the video with that guy who shaved with a knife? That was a neck knife. If you didn't see it here's the link. Or rather he comments on it as a neck knife during shaving. And in the end a roofing knife. You can see part of the sheath under his shirt during the video, and at the beginning on the outside of his shirt.

    Nice man. I've just made my first two custom knives. One I kept and one is off for a Christmas Exchange. (Forgot to take pics though...I could cry)

    It's fun but those like like they could easily sell for double what you paid. Nice knives.

    I just couldn't help myself! My mother gave me a gold coin, so I cashed it in and purchased these three beauties from the same maker!
    Apparently he used a small amount of metal from a meteorite in making these damascus blades. Don't know what that means but I sure do like them!
