Any particular one?

The pics of those Seamus knives look amazing. Are those yours? Never mind just read they were. Are those on washers or bearings?
I want that Irish crossover that knife looks b.a.

Also I just started seeing these knives pop up a lot on my IG feed. The makers name is Sam Johnston and one of my favorite knives of his is the Shadow Rail. His work looks amazing.

Peter was so easy to work with and his price for the work he does makes him easily top 4 fav makers.

Folders? G&G Hawk and let 'em go nuts. Mad geniuses should be allowed to stretch their legs whenever possible.

Fixed? Jerry Fisk. Master of the form. I'd ask for something simple and clean and then let the man make my eyes pop because he really, truly is a master. And you don't mess with that much.

Always been a huge fan of Greg Lightfoot's designs.

I'm planning to have a custom LCC made, if he's still willing to build one (older design)

Here's the production version of the LCC, which I suppose would be considered a mid-tech by today's standards:

But Lightfoot used to make custom versions about 20 years ago. Hard to find pics today:
