SOLD MR. ITOU. JAPAN. "DROP POINT HUNTER".
A super nice example from this well respected Japanese Maker.
Mr. Itou is well known for his forged R2 custom Damascus. I have sold a few of his knives and they all exhibit a high standard of workmanship and I'm sure whoever buys this knife will not be disappointed. This model has a slightly shorter blade, which some prefer, and Desert Ironwood set off by nickel silver fittings. I have also had 'JANKS Leather' make a lovely custom sheath for this knife.
Blade: 3-1/4" Oal: 7-1/2". Mint cond.

This stunning vintage folder could be everything that the casual Stalker might need, being very easy to slip into a pocket or backpack. Made in 1969, when the quality of Puma knives were among the best money could buy, this knife is in superb condition for the year and handled in wonderful Sambar stag, the like of which is rarely seen today. Complete with main locking spearpoint blade, additional gralloching blade and bone saw - and not forgetting the all important corkscrew to toast a successful day in the field!

JANUARY SALE ITEM
CHARLES MAY.USA. "D2 HUNTER".
I love Charles's work - simple clean lines, executed perfectly. And in D2 tool steel, what is there not to like ! This knife has an almost straight spine, with just a slight drop towards the point. And having a flat grind, I could have just as easily included this in the UTILTY section. A knife made to be taken out and used ! Blade: 4" Oal: 8-1/2".
Light brown micarta handle, with mosaic pins and red liners. Complete with a very well made sheath, also by Charles.
Pre-owned but in mint, unused condition. £345 inc. UK p&p SALE: £310
JANUARY SALE ITEM
CHRONOS. POLAND. "SERRATUS".
A lovely knife from Dawid, with clean lines and a nice balance. As to be expected from him, the quality of this knife is superb ! Made from 2.5mm M390 steel and black G10, with blue liners and mosaic pins, this knife will certainly give 'pride of ownership'. Dawid's kydex sheaths are also a joy to behold. ( I wish I could get more of his knives ! ).
Blade: 4". Oal: 8-1/4".
ps. having recently spoken to Dawid, he told me that BOKER has approached him and will be producing one of his designs as a Factory offering. This is a Maker whose 'Star' is rising !
pps. he also told me that at his last Show, a Knife Dealer came and bought all the knives off his table !! - which is why I can't get hold of any. ha,ha. :(
Mint, unused condition. £285 inc. UK p&p. SALE: £245
JANUARY SALE ITEM
DAN CROTTS. USA. "DROP POINT". Himalayan Sheephorn
Collectors and users of Bob Dozier knives will be well aware of Dan as he works for Bob, making Dozier knives. Occassionally, Dan will spend time in his own workshop and make his own range of knives, which, not surprisingly, are heavily influenced by Bob knives. This particular knife is very comfortable in the hand and is made from D2 tool steel, with Bob's superb heat treatment. The handle is stunning Premium Himalayan Sheephorn, with red liners and the package is completed with a very secure kydex sheath. Blade: 3-1/2". Oal: 7-3/4".
Mint, unused condition. £385 inc. UK p&p. SALE: £345
JANUARY SALE ITEM.
SEKI CUT. JAPAN. "BOB LUM Design - ENCOUNTER".

Comes with a double stitched brown leather sheath. This knife is unused and complete with original box. Mint condition. SALE price: £125 inc. UK p&p
JANUARY SALE ITEM
ALAN WOOD. "CANADIAN".
The second version of this model I have had from Alan. This design needs no introduction to Knife Lovers & Hunters alike and is just as useful today as it was when first designed by D.H. Russell & R. Grohmann 60 plus years ago. The steel is 12c27 with a "Stag Bone" handle for a change from the usually seen wood. Blade: 4" Oal: 8-1/2". Complete with brown leather Ambi sheath.
Brand new from Maker. £310 inc. UK p&p
JANUARY SALE ITEM

I have acquired three more of these wonderful new models from Alan

All brand new from Maker.

SOLD PUMA. GERMANY. "3591 - WAIDMESSER". A superb example of this now discontinued knife. Possibly the complete "one Knife does all" for the Stalker ? Main fixed blade, with a bone saw and gralloching blade folded inside the handle ( and a corkscrew to celebrate a good day in the field ! ). Complete with original leather sheath but missing the 'frog' for belt carry (simply carry it in a pocket or backpack instead ).Made in 1971. Mint, unused condition.
SOLD BUCK KNIVES. USA. "PATHFINDER - 105".
A 'vintage' example (made around the late 1970's - early 1980's) of this all time Classic knife from Buck. The 105 has a longer (5 inch) blade which some might prefer for stalking. This knife also has the original 'Cavalry flap' style sheath.
Mint & unused. £89 inc. UK p&p
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "TROPHY".
A rare model from Alan and only the second example I've had for sale. I can't imagine any knife to be more stunning than this, with the Damasteel blade, stainless steel bolsters and gorgeous Mammoth ivory handle. Complete with brown leather sheath and guarantee.
Blade: 2-3/4". Oal: 6-1/2". Mint, as new condition.
SOLD SHOSUI TAKEDA. "DROP POINT HUNTER".
One of my favourite Japanese makers, Shosui is a 3rd. Generation Master Bladesmith specialising in 'Aogami Super steel', which is now clad in stainless steel. As typical of Japanese swords, Shosui forges the blade before passing it to another maker to be handled - in this case, pinned stag with a micarta spacer. Take it from me, Shosui makes a sharp knife !! Blade: 4" Oal: 8 3/4". Complete with a well made leather sheath.
Mint, unused cond. Commission sale.
CK HUNTER ( Customknife exclusive ) This is my exclusive design that I have made for me by Andy Martland. I thought it would be nice to also include it in the Hunting section, as those who have bought it and used it in the field have been very happy with its performance. I also feel that this would be a very useful knife to keep in a backpack. (See CK Exclusive on sidebar for details of spec.).
New. £175 inc. UK p&p
I have been told by Andy that he is no longer making knives, so this is the last CK Hunter available !
BAILEY & 'GROMMIT'. UK. "DAMASCUS HUNTER"
Please email for more details. £275 inc. UK p&p
SOLD J. A. LONEWOLF. USA. "DEER HUNTER".
A superbly Scrimshawed deer graces the handle of this wonderful knife by the artisan Jay Lonewolf ( not to be confused with the company Lone Wolf Knives ). As a skilful bladesmith with over 20 years experience, he also hand forged the "randon pattern" damascus blade and it's easy to see why his work is much sought after in the States. With a brass guard and genuine stag handle, set of by a wooden pommel, this knife would look as good on a belt as it would in a Collection. My only "minor complaint" would be that the quality of the sheath does not do justice to the stunning quality of the knife ( it proves the adage that "Knifemakers make knives because they want to - but make sheaths because they have to ! ").
Blade: 3 3/4". Oal: 8 1/2". Mint condition.
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "EXPERT".
This is a lovely model by Alan, that in the right hands is capable of more than it's size suggests - hence the name. A mirror polished blade of premium RWL34 steel and maroon micarta, set off by white liners and stainless steel fittings makes for a very attractive knife. Complete with a black leather 'swivel' sheath. Blade: 3 1/4". Oal: 7 1/2".
SOLD RANDALL MADE KNIVES "Model #4-6". Many would say that Randall Made are the "most famous knives in the world" ( and I would be one of them!). No other knives have the pedigree and heritage that Randalls possess and there was a time when a Randall Made was the best knife money could buy - and the fact there is a current 4 1/2 YEAR waiting list suggests that a lot of people still feel that way !
This is the Model 4 "Big Game & Skinner", in 01 carbon steel, and handled in gorgeous 'finger grooved' stag, which is an extra cost option from Randall. Brass guard and butt cap. This knife feels very comfortable in the hand.
A really spectacular Randall and if I was tempted to start collecting Randalls again, this would be a great place to start !
Mint, unused condition.
RUFFIN JOHNSON "EL LOBO SOLO -TRAILING POINT". PLEASE EMAIL FOR SPEC. New price: £345 inc. UK p&p
SOLD ALAN WOOD "STALKER". Everything once in a while, Alan will upgrade a standard "working" model with gorgeous stainless Damascus and this Stalker is such an example. The Hakkapella pattern particularly suits the long blade and coupled to a black micarta handle (with blue liners) really makes for a classy knife! A very well made black leather swivel sheath completes a package that would please the most fastideous owner. Blade: 4 3/4" Oal : 9 1/2"
Pristine mint cond.
SOLD HOWARD HITCHMOUGH "SEMI-SKINNER". As I have mentioned before, Howard was the premier UK maker before emigrating to the US of A, a good few years ago. Even now, there are only a very few UK makers capable of matching his high standard of workmanship. This knife is one of his earlier knives, as denoted by the logo, but the fit & finish is superb. The 4" blade is in a semi-skinner style, made of D2 tool steel (I have customers who use Howard's D2 knives and they say the edgeholding is amazing!). The handle looks to be Bocote(?) wood, with black liners and fastened by stainless Corby bolts with a wonderful tapered tang. Nickel silver guard. Oal is 8 1/2". Howards knives are getting harder to find and this one will make either a great user or an addition to a collection of UK makers.
SOLD ALAN WOOD "FIELD & STREAM"
SOLD ALAN WOOD "WARRENER". This model by Alan is made with the "Rabbiter" in mind, designed for crunching through joints, etc. and skinning - although I think you could skin just about anything with this beauty. However, I could also see this knife getting a lot of use in the kitchen as a sort of "mini Chef-knife". Very comfortable in the hand ! A flat grind 3 1/2""blade of Random pattern Damasteel and a Camel bone handle (with blue liners), gives an oal of 7 1/2". Brand new from Alan.
SOLD PAT MITCHELL "HAND MADE" SHEFFIELD. A lovely little "Gut-Hook" hunter for those of you used to this style of knife. Made by the now sadly deceased family firm of Stuart and Pat Mitchell, who specialised in hunting knives that were made to be used. Pat Mitchell knives are now becoming harder to find and are developing a nice following of users and collectors. A 2 1/2" blade of SF-77 Sheffield Carbon steel with a rosewood handle, giving an aol of 6 1/4". Despite it's seemingly small size, this knife would be capable of "punching well above it's weight" ! Appears to be unused but shows a few scratches from being inserted in the kydex neck sheath.
SOLD LLOYD PENDLETON. California. Lloyd is a Knifemaking Legend over on the other side of the pond, having made his first knife in 1973 and becoming a Full Time maker in 1978 - and is still active today ! This is his Classic Semi-Skinner which is probably recognisable to those familiar with Cold Steel knives, as they do several copies of this model. This is a wonderful knife, the genuine article - comfortable in the hand and amazing fit and finish. 3 1/2" blade of mirror finished stainless steel ( possibly ATS34 ?), s/s guard and green micarta handle, with red liners giving an oal of 8 1/2". Priced at just a little over what you would pay for a Cold Steel copy !
SOLD Phil Wilson - Seamount Knife Works. MEADOWS Semi-skinner. A chance to buy a knife that is rarely seen on this "side of the pond" by Phil Wilson, whose work is very highly regarded in America - so much so that he has recently worked with the World Famous knife brand, Spyderco who are selling a version of Phil's work. Phil himself is no longer accepting orders due to being backlogged by over a year ! This very practical Hunter has a 4 1/2" blade of premium CPMS30V with a green canvas micarta handle, for a oal of 9". Brand new, mint condition.
SOLD Alan Wood. MINI HUNTER model. One of Alan best selling models that has been a main stay of his catalog since the beginning. I doubt if many have been as nice as this version. Lovely Odin's Eye damascus blade and Sambar stag handle with s/s fittings. Dark brown pouch sheath with Alan's logo stamped onto it. Just waiting for someone to take this beauty out into the field ! 2 3/4" blade. oal 6 3/4". Brand new, a CLA knife.
SOLD Bob DOZIER. ARKANSAS TRAVELLER. Living Legend Bob Dozier has built his reputation on making "no nonsense, no frills" hard working knives for people who actually use them. His favourite steel is D2 tool steel in which he has perfected the art of heat-treating, to obtain the maximum performance ( this stuff justs keeps on cutting !! ). Every once in a while, Bob will upgrade a model with a premium handle material and this is such an example. The extremely rare, genuine AMBER stag ( not the dyed version that is more commonly seen ) makes this knife a thing of beauty to treasure or to use. Aol 6 7/8" and a blade of 2 7/8". D2 steel at 60-61rc. Complete with a kydex sheath. This is out of my own collection. Mint.
SOLD Alan Wood. "Stretched" Expedition model. WOW! What a stunning knife ! Extra long 12c27 stainless blade ( 8 1/4" compared to the usual 6" length ) and designed, according to Alan, with the Boar hunter in mind. The blade is Flat ground with a perfect hand rubbed finish. Handle is of Giraffe bone which, like a lot of natural material, differs in colour on either side. Housed in an impressive dangler-type sheath. Oal.13 1/2". Perhaps my favourite of Alan's CLA knives. Brand new.
