NOTICE OF RETIREMENT: As of 2021, I am no longer taking orders for new custom knives or custom knife repair and conversions. For those of you who would still like one of my custom knives, I do have a few "On Hand", that can be shipped out ASAP. You should find the info and photos of them under the "Knives For Sale" section.  These remaining knives will be discounted by 30%, until they are all gone.
Thank you for your support over the years.  - Jay Maines

Sample Box

Sample BoxSome of my customers tell me I offer so many handle varieties that they can’t make a choice because they have never seen some of these exotic materials. Here then, for a few dollars in shipping costs, is my answer to their need for better information. This box of small sample pieces will give you the opportunity to handle and compare the many samples of wood, horn and colored liners. Take an up-close look at what your favorite exotic wood or horn will look like with a different colored liner under it. Feel the rough texture of sambar stag or the smooth, shiny surface of black water buffalo horn. All you need do is ask, and, with priority mail, this sample box can be on your doorstep in just 2 – 3 days. Take your time and look it over, then send it back with your order.
