What's the pivot? Using washers or bushings?
What's the blade finish? Bead blasted or grit?
Are you and Richard building these or do you have gnomes working on them?

So they're going to be featured on a Nat Geo show?

I'm going to assume you're talking about this? http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/lords-of-war/
http://www.tricities.com/news/local/article_53002112-5df6-11e2-8fe4-001a4bcf6878.html
I was drawn to the history involved in the show, said Harley, owner of Lonesome Pine Knives and known in some circles as The Hammer. My trips to the New York Knife Show over the years got my name out there. A video of me that got put up on YouTube also got me noticed. This guy knew this guy who knew a guy with the production team putting this show together. They interviewed me and we hit it off because our passions and our interests and what they had in mind for this show were just a dream for a guy like me. We get to fire guns, cannons, and see these incredible items attached to such history. Man, its good. Its like Antiques Roadshow meets Top Shots.
So its like the hillbilly love child of Antiques Roadshow and Top Shot??

Who's Santa's Malevolent cousin there on the left in the leather apron? :evil:

Ohhhh no, you don't get off that easy.

What was the one coolest antique sword/knife/bow/pole arm/etc. that you handled? It isn't like you're breaking any rules telling us what it was.

I always considered the basket hilted Scottish broadsword to be a claybeg instead a claymore.

How was the balance on it?

larry harley
January 17, 2013, 10:46 AM
the basket was way to small for my hand
they musta been little bitty fellers
other than that sweet

You're a blacksmith with great big hands and forearms, of course you're going to crowd the grip.

Was the balance "lively" or "choppy" or "dead"?

ITS MADE TO CHOP AND STABB
i couldnt feel much of a foil about it

January 17, 2013, 12:29 PM
Yo Mama u think thats too much to ask??
i thought in the grand scheme of things, and looking at how my peers price something similar that was a fair price.

It's in there with custom folders for price, but not everyone gets that.

You custom makers have been working with manufacturers and part of the $$$:eek: reaction comes from the elevated level of product they can provide now. They get 75% of the looks and performance for so much less that people don't understand how much it adds to the cost to get that last 25% hammered out with hand work and skill (and that's ignoring the economy of scale and materials purchase power of a manufacturer with a national distribution/advertising system).

I cant speak for the others but mine is an organic steady rest, that i have invested in heavily over the yrs in order to perform the task of grinding in a more efficient manner........!!!:D

Larry,
Custom folders are a different type of knife. I own several and have enjoyed and experienced the difference. If you were asking much less than $350 I'd be wondering where you shaved the cost. Your price is fair in my opinion.
PM incoming.

Jim
