We are going to add a couple of custom knife makers to our website. One is Mike Mann from Idaho Knife Works. Here's one he made for me and brought over to the shop on Sunday. It's a Cliff Hunter with a forged blade. It was designed by Canoe Guide and Author Cliff Jacobson. The knife he made me is made from Walnut Burl.
Visit Idaho Knife Works's (http://www.idahoknifeworks.com/) website.

Mike Mann make really great knives. You will do very well with them on your Website. I have seen the Cliff hunter Before and it is a slick pattern.

Thanks Mike, we are going to carry his hunting and fishing knives and his L.F.K. to start out with. I'll chew his ear a little more this weekend as we are going to a 3-D shoot on Saturday together. A very well-liked guy, and I'll let you know if I have to shoot left handed!:smoker:

Scott - have you had a chance to use the Mann fixed blades? I am curious about how they work on camping type chores, and how they hold an edge.

The Cliff knife was made to be an all-in-one knife. Mike is standing here right now and he's telling us how his customers use the Cliff Knife for canoeing, backpacking, cutting board use, skinning, just about all camp activities. AND it holds a great edge AND it's easy to sharpen.
The Cliff comes in two models; The Cliff Canoe is made from thin 15N20 high carbon bandsaw steel and is more flexible and lighter weight, that canoers and backpackers love. The Cliff Hunter is made from heavier hand-forged, 1/8" to 3/16" in thickness, 5160 Spring Steel for hunting and heavier work.
But mostly, the knife is easy to use and feels very comfortable in your hand. :greenarc:
