Custom forum knives

Postby arthas » Wed Apr 15, 2009 10:40 am

Hello folks!

Lionsteel, one of the premier cutleries in Maniago, is cooperating with some online forums in order to provide high-quality custom-design and limited edition knives to members. Some examples, from other forums in Italy and Germany, are these:

Most knives are fixed blade, or lockblade.

If there's interest here on TalkBlade, Lionsteel would be happy to build custom knives based on user demand.

Comments welcome! :)

Thanks,
M.

What??? A Forum Knife that actually has great utility? That's crazy talk...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

It certainly would be a departure. Let's hear more details about possible specs and pricing.

Hi!

You can ask for the specs you like best... once they're agreed upon, a cost might be estimated.

Please note that the displayed ones are mere examples. You can also take a look at:

http://www.lionsteel.it/

to see the style of the knives, and ask for custom things.

Anyone that puchased one of the Outdoor 7" that I imporrted several years ago, knows that Lion Steel makes excellent knives close to [or equal to] "German quality' :!:
So a "custom level" one should be VERY nice 8) :idea:

Fixed blade ? Folder ? Their "multi-tool" has minimal "tools" [less than most Swiss Army Knives] but looks VERY nice 8) [An almost traditional "Toothpick"]
To make it more acceptable to Americans - Lose the "corkscrew" we just don't want/need/use them :idea:
Replace it with a very well designed scissors or [even better] a Philips head screwdriver :idea:
Grind the end of the saw flat [for use as a flathead screwdriver] then grind a small notch for use as a "hook-remover" 8) MUCH more "multi" but still a very traditional but unique [one of a kind] knife :!:

I'm personally not too interested in fixed blades- I have a few, but my main interest is in folding knives.

The multitools are nice, but I also like the looks of the Pump lock, the Traditional and the Skinner.

Is there any chance that a custom forum knife could be an auto, or customized to be easily converted?
