Custom Knife Project Availability

Hello Everyone!

I recently received a call from a customer inquiring about having our steak knives custom made with his elk horn. The project would be a rather large project. I was looking for recommendations for a knife maker that would have the time and expertise to do such a project. There would be follow up projects after the initial one. Please message me any suggestions or if you would be interested.

Best Regards,

Seems antler would be a breeding ground for bacteria

Have them stabilized, I also give them an epoxy coating. still not dishwasher safe but the one I use has held up several years (and a couple of cycles through the dishwasher).

There's got to be someone here who'd take it on.

The initial order is around 35-40 knives and more to come after. The handle material has not been set in stone and I'm sure they are up for suggestions. It is for a very high-end small restaurant in Colorado. Private Message me if you have any suggestions.
