Birthday present ideas

Mon Oct 21, 2013 1:48 pm

Hi Mark,

My son was born last week and I was thinking about buying a custom made knife or knife with a custom handle with his initials engraved in the handle (or etched into the blade) that I'd pass on to him for his 18th bday.

Any thought about where/how I could get this done? No preference on the knife yet … well, something that holds up all those years ;) Price range is about $500-$1000.

Hi Stefan,

So in that price range you could get him something unique and special and you would have time to wait.

I would highly recommend something stainless since you don't want to stash it away for 18 years and come back to a rusty knife.

How about doing a custom knife from Adam Marr? He does really nice work, uses AEB-L and can make it to your specs in terms of size and shape. I have one of his knives and I love using it.
Adam posts on this forum and you can just PM him and deal direct. That way he keeps all the money which I would prefer since I'm not making it or doing much besides connecting you to him.
