I have a 3V recon tanto from cold steel, and I always thought the design would benefit if it had a brass or steel guard, now I may have that option.

Does anyone know about this shop and has anyone used there services? If you have, how good or bad is their work and would you recommend them? If no, who do you recommend I go to in order to get the modifications I want?

I contacted the seller, and he is not interested in working on my blade, anyone know of any other knife makers they would recommend for the work I asked for? My knife will look something like this.

The only difference will be that the handle will be a solid block of black canvas Micarta and the guard will be made of brass.

He can make or do anything with or for a knife. You’re only limited by your wallet.

Tell him Dr Rick, from Virginia sent you.

Do it yourself. That will be more satisfying anyhow.

I don't know of any knife maker near me that would do that. I have several Cold Steel blades. You might be better off just having a custom made for you with the handle and guard you want. The tanto blade shape is pretty common so many knifesmiths could easily make what you want.

Like I said, Matt Cook, can remake a knife in the style of choice or modify yours with explicit instructions on what you want.

But you need some deep pockets because he doesn’t come cheap.

He has remade many knives, including Balisongs.

I have spent thousands of dollars with him. We have become very good friends ever since I met him in 2009. He has a lot of raw materials such as dinosaur bone, mammoth ivory, micarta. He has forged steel and Damascus. There isn’t anything that he can’t make.
