Wat van 'n custom jobbie deur een van die local makers? Ek weet Eric Els het 'n paar mooies gemaak maar glo nie hy werk met ivoor. Daar is wel mense wat met ivoor werk wat seker die handvatsel kan maak.
Die groepie messe, byle .....op FB is 'n goeie plek vir beter leidrade.

Another one on the wishlist. @Chantal Burger dis jou skuld.  Groot folder cleaver/chopper.  Kitchen camp work.  Min 4 inch blade.  Chantal, i picture one issue with your AC Tomahawk.  The blade folder lever on the bottom will interfere with chopping work when using the knife as a chef knife ...  its will not allow proper contact with the food when hinge chopping things or even straight down chinese style chopping?  Rest is spot on.  Any recommendations?

This is what Hardy uses. The Kizer Sheepdog XL. The finger choil at the bottom of the blade leaves enough space / leverage, I know he has two (I am stirring now)

Hein
You will struggle to find a big cleaver blade folder that does not have a flipper tab that interferes.
Cleaver blades is generally heavy and a normal thumb stud or blade hole (like Spyderco)  opening does not give enough leverage & momentum to flip the blade out.
I found a guy that will make you a bird & trout knife with Bohler N690 steel and Ivory.
Will post some of his knives here

Okes are moaning about the quality online.  So im still searching.

In my mind a chopper must he able to chop on a flat service.  A slight rocking action is fine. The edge dont have to be completely straight, but close.  The hilt must leave space so your fingers doesnt block the action when chopping in a hinge action.  Thats how I view it in any case?

So, am looking to buy my laaitie an EDC knife.  He studies graphic design and fotography.  I knife is always handy.  Ek also commutes to class using public transport and are often in strange places on photography assignments.

Criteria - less than R1000. Straight blade. Multi purpose design. Folder. Light. Medium size

Narrowed it down to the two below, but happy to discuss other options..

Both D2 steel.  Thoughts on this?

The guy on youtube channel "Outpost 76" has done extensive edge retention testing on production knives. Performance on D2 blades showed huge differences in performance between different suppliers. Must be very sensitive to heat treat I guess.
Most D2 knives incl the Cut Jack were outperformed by supposedly "softer" steels that are easier to sharpen and have much better corrosion resistance.
These included a couple of models from Ruike in 14c28 and knives in Aus-8 from Cold Steel and Ontario. The ontario Rat was one of the few D2 models that performed well.

Good choice, Ross. Sharpens very well and I even have a KBAR pr of pliers.

Not for sale but mine has been with me since '81.

Never used in anger but slaughtered a few goats and the odd bit of game for the pot.

I've just finished making this Damascus knife. 60 layers consisting of 1070 and 75ni8. Both are high carbon steels, 75ni8 being similar to15n20, but with a higher nickel content which gives a nice contrast against the 1070. Handle is fallow deer antler with brass bolster and pommel. Overall length is 250mm, and the blade is 126mm. Hand made leather sheath.

The Damascus is hand forged, no power hammer or hydraulic press, just an old fashioned hammer and anvil. Price: R3000.
