I've been blessed with the opportunity to try out a few custom made knives and it's been an awesome experience so far.
My latest custom comes from knife maker, Keith R Johnson of Great River Forge. He is an extremely talented maker and a blast to deal with. I enjoyed the experience from the word go and I look forward to having him make me another knife or two down the road.
The quality is hard to beat and a production knife can't even begin to challenge it. Keith has some great talent in a very crowded field, but it's his drive/strive for excellence that keeps in a higher echelon of custom knife makers.
It's a rare treat to enjoy a knife of this magnitude and beauty. I'm so happy to have contacted him about making this knife.
I'll post some pics of my knife soon.
