    Here's a couple of my favorites from my two favorite custom makers; Bill Ruple and Luke Swenson. These guys make some amazing usable art! And yes, I use my customs. That's what they're made for! IMG_0313.jpg 34644294_10212090053230088_2770935019013668864_n.jpg

    That sounds cool. I don't think I've seen any of his knives with a zulu blade, lots of clips and they sure look good. He's definitely a maker to covet.

    I'm a bit of a steel snob when it comes to my hunting knives, so I have a couple of customs in high hardness steel.

    I love the Toole Native. Been thinking about signing up for IG so I can contact him about one.

    Here's my Jalomo mini LC.
