Custom orders, or why won’t anyone buy the knife I already made?

So we have been keeping busy recently with custom orders. As a matter of fact most of the sales we have been making are custom orders.  The requests are often strange and unusual but I guess we like the challenge    We finished up a model 1855 Prussian pioneer sword  rehandleing project. We also got three of a four knife order forged to shape out of a land rover coil spring.   We also took on a project to make a Seax out of grand dads meat cleaver which should arrive sometime next week.  The handle of the Prussian sword was made from the old method of stacking birch bark into a handle.  It is quite involved but in the end makes a nice looking and sturdy handle.  Enjoy the pictures of the process.
