One of my close friends has been making knives for a few years now. He, and I, are into the utilitarian type devices in life, function over fashion, but dig stuff that not only is 100% usable but looks tits, too! I explained to him an EDC I'd like, told him the pertinent details, & I asked him to make it for me a few months ago and I'd buy it from him. Well, my 40th birthday was yesterday and he surprised me with this, which was exactly how I wanted it!!! It's an EDC made from heat treated Cpm S35VN with Micarta handle, a fire starter/striker that's removable and a Tech lock (sp?). I really dig it. Yes, the pics suck. Yall's thoughts?

Yes he is! I know next to nothing about knives. I just told him a black blade, Micarta handle & kydex sheath & he knocked it out of the park!
He's also a firefighter & he has another firefighter making his handles right now. They just came up w/a special handle material that'll be a big hit among FF's (I don't know if he'd want me saying any more than that until he starts selling them). I'm glad y'all like it as I'm really impressed w/it.

He does not. He's a full time firefighter and makes knives as his second job. If you PM me your email address I'm sure he could send pics of knives he has ready to go along with prices.

That is a nice utilitarian design with clean grinds and overall great execution. I love the natural canvas micarta and looks like micarta pins and tube also.
