Three sources here are Atlanta Cutlery Corporation and its branch - Museum Replicas - and Kult of Athena. You’ll spend a good hour+ looking at all they offer, even replica clothing, if you want to gambol about as a musketeer or a pirate - good stuff for collectors. FYI
I’ve confessed this before, I’m something of a sucker for knives. I like the craftsmanship that goes into them. I’ve parted with good money more than once over a well-made knife, despite the fact that I’d rather wrestle a crocodile than get in a knife fight.
Remember Bill Moran, his Lime Kiln knives, who re-discovered how to make Damascus steel? When his waiting period for orders reached 6 years, he began refunding deposits. The last time I shopped Randalls, their waiting time was up to 3.
Polearms are the way to go!
Re: my above link. Just got an email from Adam. Tax laws, he’s had enough. GOINGgone will get you 20 percent of what’s left, and he will be using barter system for future custom work.20% off everything until April 20th.
Thanks for the link and promo code. Picked up the kitchen clever for the deer shack.
I watched a guy working on Damascus steel a few years ago. It sure looked like a process.
That is still a taxable transaction by the IRS regs.
