I don't know anything beyond what I've seen on their website and Knifeforums.

I would have one concern and that's the sweep of the curve from the grip to the edge. I would like a guard or a change in that smooth curve to prevent your fingers from sliding forward. Jimping or slots in the ricasso would serve.

You might read the material in their forum at Kniveforums and see if anyone has expressed any concerns.

I do have to say that the prices are impressive.

I have 2 and am waiting for my 3rd.

The patch knife is is made from old saw blades and will come in varying thicknesses from batch to batch, not that you'd notice. The steel cuts very well (on wood at least) and is easy to sharpen -I believe that the hardness is on the lower end for steels. These knives are cold blued in order to cover old saw markings, etc.

The tigerwood maple is the best I've ever seen used on knives. It is sourced from a Kentucky rifle maker and it beats everything I have ever seen offered by other knifemakers.

The owner, LT is responsive and easy to work with. He honestly believes in providing a quality product at a great price. BHK has a subforum within Knife Forums @
