This is my favorite so far from your collection of blades. I really like the shape and finish of the blade.

Very awesome knife.  I really like that one.  The BEST part though may be the price.  It reads like a typo for a custom knife.  I'm surprised it's still here.  If I was in the market for a custom knife it would be gone.   Someone's going to get a great knife.

I will buy one , although I need one bit of customizing on the tip end profile. Otherwise I would have to do it myself. Better that you, Mario, the maker, do any modification.
If you prefer I will do business here in this topic, but through PM is better for me. I would prefer it that way. But you have sold me a knife, regardless. If things work out the way I would like it to work out, I will buy 3.


Contact me thru PM please. I do not know what hours you are available, due to our different time zones. That would be better to go thru PM, in order to go through the requested details efficiently. I understand that there may be a cost change for your efforts to do a bit of "profile change".


PM only please. I would prefer it that way.

I am not a knife maker so please excuse me if this question is stupid, but what is the purpose of the little half circle cut out on the edge right before the ricasso?

Thanks

that's a choil. Its usually there so the blade can come to a nice sharp end without widening out and changing the angle you need to establish for sharpening. I think.



also: looking forward to see what you end up with MnS!

Yes is correct, in my case I use that little half circle to make a more perfect transition between cutting area and the ricasso.

Mario(MLL), has been outstanding to work with, in our dealings so far, & I think that he stands behind his work like all good craftsman/women do. He has been very cooperative with the small changes I have asked to be made... I commend him for that.
 :)
 :thumbsup:


I am looking forward to having the customized knife he has made from this "pattern" for me, in my hands, & I am sure it wll be all that I asked for.
 :D

That's a really nice knife. I especially like the added belly. That's something that's really lacking on Woodlore clones. This is kind of like a Woodlore/Kephart cross, eh?

Got my custom one this afternoon(Monday). Very sharp, nice in the hand, I am happy with it so far. Only made a few cuts with it & I really liked the feel. More usage later..
 :)
I will post up pics & some more info later, for any who would like to know.

I am very happy with Mario/MLL knives in doing business, & amazingly quick service/turnaround. Only a couple weeks & it was a "mod./custom"... Not just a "grab it off the shelf" item. Very pleased so far!

Hello zig,
yes, I tried to make a Scandinavian-tipe knife slightly different from the usual, I think with this format is more versatile in normal use.
I'm glad you like, Thanks.

I just measured the Woodgroove I rec'd, & the handle is actually 4-1/2 inches. I find it just fits for me, & I have a decent size hand. It is really comfortable to hold & with the small amount of usage I have done it has worked well for me so far. Time will tell as I put it thru some "paces".


Of course, I realize all are hands are not the same, but I am sure Mario would make one to fit your specs., if ya chose to ask... He did for me.

The Woodgroove Micarta price is 100 USD.

 Yes, if you want I can make a knife with the handle slightly longer, no problem.

Good to know. I find a 4 3/4", to a 5 " handle works best for me. Of course, it depends on how it's made, contours, etc.

Big hand, ok no problem, I can make the handle slightly longer and also a bit thicker to be more comfortable in the hand.

Mario,
    I showed the knife ya made me, to my sons a couple days ago, & one son said he would like one & the other declined. My youngest would rather have one of my other knives instead. So, if you would, please make another knife & sheath like the one you made me, for me to give to my oldest son.


Please let me know if you are able to do this second knife for me. We can make arrangements for payment.


Thanks!

Thanks for purchasing another knife.
