    HI all, I am looking for a knifemaker who would do a simple bowie style knife, 8-10" blade, wood/bright bolsters on the handle. Needs to look like an old frontier mountainman knife. Want to keep the cost under $200, so no damascus. :(

    Example of what I'm looking for is similar to the French Trade knife at Wise Custom Knives, or the Searles Bowie at www.pattonknives.com.

    Can you recommend anyone? Website?
    TIA,
    Vic
