I hear all the time I want a crazy affordable custom knife that is a beast. well I give you bryan breedens knives. mostly in o1 none of that fancy steel but his heat treat is amazing and they hold a edge forever. I know that bryan is getting a ton of attention in the wilderness sections on bladeforums and it is $#@! well earned. 2 blades showed up today on my door step. the box was open and I was worried my blades would be missing but fortunately in the country your mail man can be trusted lol. I'm not sure what models I got but I think the lord greystroke and a mini recon. they came so sharp it's not even funny. I mean some of the sickest sharp blades I have ever seen. the big one is a 10 inch blade, 15 inches plus over all and is a freaking monster. the smaller one is right under 10 inches over all and I got them in a piggyback set up. here are some pictures. I haven't got a chance to beat on them yet but it is coming for sure. I did manage to work on some fuzz sticks and these things are so sharp it's hard to even keep the wood shavings on the stick lol. here are a few pictures. my camera absolutely sucks and I should just use my iphone I guess. I'll add some from both lol.
I'm not sure if his prices have gone up as he has been getting a pretty good wait list but I will say for both blades in kydex sheaths (not the best by any means but functional for sure) he would have done leather also (and his leather work is solid) anyhow. shipped and paypal fees for both knives was under 250 dollars. that is a steal folks. if your interested pm and I'll hook you up with his email but hurry lol.
with a baldric rig made out of paracord by our very own kimmi. pretty cool stuff, she did a amazing job for sure. killer quality and a great price.
and some iphone pics lol. not sure why my camera sucks so bad.
