quality piece. I'm
speechless sir. Thanks from
the bottom of my heart for

soul into making my knife.
My Model A4 Slip Joint
Can be made to be a lockback
This is a custom slip joint with a thumb opener.
I made this for a customer in March 2015. He
posted the following on Blade Forums on
20 DEC 15 :
I want to talk about a knife.
A while I go I
hooked up with Al Warren, knife
with him is a dream; I am para-
lyzed on the left side so have
a lot of custom needs.
He took his basic
traditional knife and adapted it
for me, adding a thumbstud and
pocket clip, loose-
ning the pivot as well.
He even sent me excellent
pics of different
samples of ironwood so I could
pick one out.
I have worked with several knife
makers, and this
was my easiest and best experi-
ence by far.
Now add the
drama. The house sprung a leak
somewhere in the
walls. Water started bubbling
up through the
floorboards, not much at first and
then over the course of a few
days, getting worse.
We had to get out, fast;
my wheelchair was skid-
ding and I
worried about being stranded. The
put us up in an accessible
hotel and my wife packed up everything.
So there I was, with only my
edc, the Al Warren.
It was eight weeks before we
got back; this was
the only knife I had during
This knife performed
like a champ. Whatever I
had to tackle, it
handled just fine. And, by the
way, I haven't sharpened it
once, or felt I had to.
We're back now, with
everything restored. This
is still my carry knife, and
I'm planning to get a
another one from him, a
You never know till you have
to depend on it.
This is one great knife.
This "caping" knife has
elk ivory tooth inlaid
in an elk antler
handle. I inlay elk teeth for $25 per tooth.

teeth put into, click

knives is available.
This is my $375 model P111 hunter with
ironwood handle scales.
The crown of two elk teeth are inlayed one on
each side. Total cost to customer was $425
the knife and two inlays.
These knives were made for
a group of elk
hunters. They all decided to
order the same
model #2 caper with their
choice of handle
material. They sent me
their elk ivories to
inlay on each side of the handle.
The one on the left is
desert ironwood and
the other five are California buckeye. All are
made with S30V steel. The sheaths have been
dipped in a hot solution of Neatsfoot oil with
parafin melted in it to weatherize them.
Here is my newest inlay project-
Elk tooth ivories in a folder!
This is my Model D4 drop point with
ironwood handle scales.

Fond memories of a deer hunt-
A model C4 lockback with a S30V drop-point
blade and mammoth tooth scales. Made
happy Ryan McShane in
Australia. To make
sure it was Australian
legal, the blade is just
under 3" and the spring
pressure is enough
to require two hand opening. Similar work for
Filework on spline
A very light-weight version of my model T4
lockback made by request for Mr. Marcus
Tate in Australia. It has red linen micarta
scales with"button" bolsters. The bird &
trout style blade is S30V
Same model T4 in a slipjoint
version and a
drop point blade. Steel is S30V with a "stone
washed" finish. Scales
are cabon fiber.

video of this knife
In celebration of his retirement
as a peace
officer, Patrick ordered a custom knife made
to his design. This
"Battle Knife" has pre-
mium desert ironwood scales. The guard and
pins are stainless steel and
the 7" blade is
S30V steel tempered to 58 Rc hardness.
The sheath has an overlay front and back of
gator hide that Patrick sent me. Wow, what
a gorgeous sheath it made! Price: $625.
Michelle wanted to surprise her husband
on their 10th anniversary with this knife,
which has a 4" raindrop damascus blade
with sambar stag handle and koa spacer.
3 1/2" copperhead commissioned by Rich Conrad.
It has mammoth ivory scales
and filework on the
liners. The blades, springs and
bolsters are double
stainless damascus. A snappy knife with great "walk
& talk". Price: $825.
This large lockback folder, like a Buck 110,
was for Ossian Grahn in Sweden. It has a
4 1/4" S30V blade with thumb openers on
both sides and is 5 1/4" closed. The liners,
pins and dove-tailed bolsters are stainless.
Price with handle scales
as shown with
sambar stag is $475.
I made a second one for a retired police
officer. Here is a report he made about it:
Al, I shot a South Texas
piggy in Zapata, TX on
the Mexican border. I gutted
and skinned this hog
with the model 110 you
made with S30V steel.
As I'm sure
you know those russian boar are
and you well know the effect the
hide and hair has on a blade edge. The entire pig
was done without touching up the edge. Even cut-
ting rib meat and
finer dressing out. Never seen
edge retention like that before.
Those South Texas boys wanted
to buy that knife
on the spot.
Told them where to get one. Just
like to hear how exceptionally
well your knife performed.
Thanks again... Patrick
