I suppose it is tupping season, so I don't think much rohsypsyrup would be needed  ::)

I have always had a craving for a nice slip jointed folder but never seemed to be able to find one that I was really keen on.  After looking for quite a while without any luck, I was approached by Russell White who works for Taylor Eye Witness www.premiercutlery.co.uk as a knife maker.  He said that he would be able to make a knife to pretty much exactly what I wanted, so I looked into the site to see what was available.  I found a blade and handle shape that I liked (pattern #166) and so spoke to him again and asked about getting some filework done on the back spring and putting some black Micarta scales on there.  Russell was very helpful and after a few messages were exchanged I had ordered a knife from him.

Well it arrived yesterday and here are the results;

I could not be more pleased with it.  :)  It is (dare I say it?) absolutely perfect and is exactly what I wanted  :).  The quality is superb and is backed with a lifetime guarantee as well.

Everything about it is flawless.  The filework, the bolsters and the Micarta handles are all finished off perfectly and give the knife a comfortable and solid feel.  (The Micarta has a lovely grain on it but I am not sure if you can see that with my bad photography.)

Russell himself is a true gentleman as well.  He didn't mind going out of his way to speak to me so I got exactly what I wanted and the quality of his workmanship is second to none.  I managed to find this video (which I believe was created by members of british blades so would like to give them some credit) of Russell himself at work making another knife;

So, as you can tell I'm pretty chuffed.  :D

WoW Ben that is beautiful! Nice call there :tu:
more pictures please! (when you get a chance)  :cheers:

It does look real purdy...

I've never seen the charm in a palm-filling grip though, I like my handles thin & flat.
