    Nah, I wouldn't do that. :bwah: at least your the only person who owns two of Matt's project knives.

    The top left one is a Chuck Gedraitis custom #107. The top right one is a Matt Cook custom dogbite. Almost everything on it was custom made.

    My current level of English comprehension does not let the above sentences compute.

    A "custom" knife kit?

    :devilfinger:

    I will explain this for you guys...

    I wanted to buy a dogbite kit to sent Matt, but he told me he had a set of dogbite handles he made from scratch for a re-handle. The guy he made them for changed his mind and didn't want them, so instead of them going to waste, I offered to buy them. I couldn't find a blade for it and didn't want to buy a complete kit just for a couple parts, so I asked Matt if he'd please grind a blade for it and he agreed.. So the knife was all built by hand.

    It was intended to be a dogbite kit, not a custom.. Matt didn't put his maker mark on it because he didn't consider it to be a custom.. That's why I called it a "custom" dogbite kit.

    Yes and no.. They were made with the same specs as a dogbite. Same spacer screw placement and everything. They were made for a pre existing kit, but the client backed out. Matt asked me to try and find a blade for it because he didn't want it to be more than a re-handle, but I couldn't find any blades for sale on usaknifemaker. I would've had to buy a full kit, just to get the blade. So he let me get a re-blade on it.

    I didn't hit him up asking to build me a custom.. The hole pattern was already cut into them and they had been sitting in his shop collecting dust. That's money and time lost.. I came along and ask if he could do a kit for me and instead of letting them go to waste, he let me buy them. I didn't care what kind of hole pattern he put on them and I actually never even saw what the handles looked like until I received it in hand. Its not the same as a custom build and its not branded like his customs.. I still consider it as a dogbite kit
