    From the few basic moves I did it felt fantastic. But that doesn't qualify as flipping. I'll get the opinion of those who are more qualified than me when I meet up with them.

    Thanks man. It was such a great experience that I might ask him for another custom of my own design.

    Well, maybe I should save my pennies for one, instead of loading up mid-levels...

    They arent as expensive as you think. If you want all damascus and mokuti it can be, but if you want a basic flipper, they are very reasonable.

    I literally was having this conversation with somebody in messaging. Because of the crazy after market prices people assume that these customs are out of their price range. Why spend $750 -$800 for a midtech when you can get a custom...from a MASTER KNIFEMAKER.

    Yes, when I saw what some of the mid techs were getting and then saw what some of the really talented custom makers where asking, I knew the prices wouldnt hold up. People can say "its a collectors item" midtech, but its not a one off, made by a maker who makes 50 knives a year at most.

    I'm quite impressed. And to Terry, I apologize for stealing one of your pictures. This bali is so shiny I couldnt take even a remotely decent picture.
