FS Handmade knife from maker
« on: June 27, 2021, 09:55:53 PM »
Hello, I am a beginning/intermediate knifemaker in highschool. I've been making knives for 5 years, which have been used on deer, fish, rabbits, squirrel, everyday stuff, camping, and kitchen stuff. I enjoy hunting and fishing as well, so am hoping to use the available resources on this forum. I have other knives I can post as well, but figured I should start with only one so that I'm not advertising without paying.

Here is my most recent knife. It was made in my shop by me out of hollow ground and machine finished D2 tool steel, Ironwood, and brass. I also made the sheath out of kydex and it has good retention, though a little wiggle in the sheathed position. It has an ulticlip on it in the picture, which fits in my jeans front pocket, or it can have a teklok for a 45 degree belt carry. I can make a leather sheath if desired. It comes with my warranty: If it breaks or gets hurt under normal usage (my knives are ground thin and are meant for slicing), I will fix or replace it. If you drop it in the ocean, I will not. $180 local pickup in Vancouver, WA or buyer pays shipping. I'm on FB @aldencolehandmadeknives where you can find out more about my knives. Thanks, Alden

Looks good and let's do a couple things....leave your post up number 1 and then please take a look at sponsorship.  Pretty low cost to reach a lot of good people that likely would be interested in a future purchase.

Right on. Get this baby sold, invest a wee bit of the profit into sponsorship and you are off to the races. Maybe reach out to @rainshadow1 on her if you need a few pointers. He makes excellent vlades. Your work really does look good...clean, easy on the eyes contours.....really very nice work.

H20 Hunter, thank you, I just got it done!

Here is another knife similar to the last one. Classic hunter in hollow ground, hand rubbed D2 tool steel, brass, and maple. Leather sheath made by me for vertical belt carry. 180 local pickup or buyer pays shipping. See above for warranty and stuff. Check out my website at https://aldgracole.wixsite.com/aldencoleknives for more information on my knives. Thanks for looking and enjoy the pics,

Alden

Great looking knife and the ones on your facebook page are awesome. How much for that long kitchen slicer.chef's knife?

Thanks everyone! This one was based off the old Loveless/Dozier patterns. I love the lines those knives had.

Pianoman, are you talking about this one? It is $150 local pickup or buyer pays shipping.

I love the clean lines. Might sound weird but the styling reminds me of the interior of a fine German car from the 80's. They have class.  :tup:
