Little Whittler / Neck Knife
« on: March 09, 2012, 04:57:12 AM »
Got a new knife yesterday, and what a superb little tool it is too, the blade is 2 1/4"  in length with a scandi grind, unusually for a such a small knife it's full tang, the knife is finished off with a hand shaped Walnut handle that has some incredible deep colours in it.
 


It came nice and sharp and is incredibly comfortable to use in all of the grips associated with wood carving and whittling, the handle flows beautifully into the blade with a well thought out forward taper making grips such as the chest lever, where you place your thumb flat against the side of the blade very comfortable indeed. 
 
The maker of this superb little knife?, well I'm keeping that one to myself for the time being as he is unsure at the moment whether he should start making these to sell, no it's not me, personally, i think he should make these for general sale and i see a bright future for him if he does.

It's lovely, very tactile and very controllable for those delicate cuts

Ive already asked a chap here to guess a price (so Easy Rider dont say nowt as you know how much it cost), but looking at the knife chaps, how much would you happily pay for it.

I'll reiterate it so people know, i didnt make it.

Great looking knife Kep!  The handle looks like it allows for great control too.

Does look like a handy little carver. I like the clean, uncomplicated look of it. It's the sort of tool that would be at home in three different centuries.

I was trying to think of what a fair price for a small handmade blade from an up and coming knife-maker that I would be willing to pay, it was really just a stab in the dark...lol... I could be totally off, just trying to think of what I might want for it had I made it, hopefully we will soon find out.

That sounds like a great price...I'd pay it if he was inclined to make another!!!  Actually, I think he should make a few more...just to be sure!

Then the next question to ask is....did he give it to you at that price because you are a friend, or is that what his cost plus a reasonable profit works out to be?

Knowing that you got it for $25, I can see I was being way too generous...lol

i dont know what his cost is on these so i cant comment on that, there may have a been some small percentage of "mates rates" involved, dont know, tbh i think he felt awkward taking money from a mate, id would gladly pay double what i paid though

Nice looking carver. I would certainly be interested in buying one if he decides to make some to sell.

Appreciate the reply, even at $50 I think it is a good deal, glad to see that he is thinking of selling a few.
