"I'm not sure what the term "Custom Knife" really means in today's world. A new Randall knife costs $500+ and involves a multi-year (4?) delivery wait.  But it really isn't a "one of a kind" knife -- it…"

"Amen brother! However, as dead_left_knife_guy and you both brought up the term "custom", I think it is import to keep in mind that custom is two sides of the same coin. There's the maker's perspective - a catalog blade styles but…"

"There are some very good makers in Pakistan, in truth...but the scammers outnumber the honest 10 to 1 there. I will *not* bring in Damascus knives from my dealer there, as I find the damascus 1) is too easy to make from garbage steels and is very…"

"Lars, Thank you!  I was wondering if you had a specific dealer you looked to for your Ash, as you & I had talked about your previously.  I have a friend that markets some knives sources in Pakistan (no damascus) he has repeat customers…"

"Hi Jerry - I see quite a few members have already weighed in on this topic. When discussing the Ash knives as seen on ebay, Amazon, and Black Iron (Canada) en masse, I agree on all points made in this thread. However, I am also one who owns in…"

"I've seen several on eBay that were listed as having cracked scales.  Now what "custom" maker would consider selling one of their knives as basically a second?"

"I would also be interested in seeing a review from a trusted member.  As someone that has a forge downstairs and a few knives made from recycle, even I cannot see the less than 50.00 price making any sense for anyone other than a hobby maker,…"

"Ditto on what JJ and Manx said.  The knife is cheap in price but will very possibly be cheap in performance.  They even look Pakistani.  Decent looking for Pakistani, but Pakistani all the same -- no doubt would look even more…"

"And again, J.J. brings up a very good point. A place with a hundred or so "custom knives" for sale is pulling your leg. No way can they have that many knives in various designs, handle materials, different steels etc. without them being…"

"I had seen a company that was selling Ash knives in bulk.  No way for someone  to have a supply of "custom" or "hand made" knives without them being a massed produced item."

Steve Scheuerman (Manx) replied to JERRY BUSTER's discussion ASH Custom knives ?
"$20-$30 for a fixed blade knife of any kind of quality is very cheap. Depending where they actually come from and whether or not they are truthfully stamping the knife steel is a guessing game. Rip off artists are everywhere these days. ASH and CFK…"
