    Belgian Knife Maker Samuel Lurquin

    It might sound kind of dumb, but I get a thrill seeing knives made with handle materials I provide.

    These photos showed up in my email the other day from a friend of Sam's. Samuel Lurquin is a very talented knife maker in Belgium. This is a link to Sam's Website.

    These are the photos he sent using Curly Koa as the handle material. I think he did a really good job on these.







    What do you guys think? ..........is he any good at knives?

    He didn't give dimensions with the photos, but I would guess the handle portion over 5 inches, so maybe 8 inch blade?

    Looking at his site, I'm loving the bowies. Picked my jaw up off the floor a couple times.

    Tell Sam to come on over. I feel cheated not seeing his stuff before.

    He makes VERY nice knives. Not really my style, but the craftmanship is excellent.
