So I've been very hesitant to pull the trigger on any new purchase. It just didn't feel right. After browsing the forum for custom handle makers I rolled on past Haburn knives. Ian looks like he does some solid work and the specs on his knives are around what I'm looking for and I've always wanted to try a custom maker.
