The knife just came, and WOW! It’s absolutely perfect. I love the walrus bolsters, too. All around perfect. My hat is off to you.
Again, thanks so much for the craftsmanship and service.
Chet, my knife arrived today, and it is BEAUTIFUL. I have a very critical eye, and I couldn’t find any flaws or mistakes anywhere. I love it! Even my wife looked at it and said, “Wow!” and she isn’t much for knives, guns, and such. Thank you for your outstanding work and for working with me on the payments. When my life is settled, I will order another from you.
I am writing to compliment you on the knife that you made which I recently received as a gift. I absolutely love it! The craftsmanship is so unique and detailed that it will always be one of a kind. My friends always ask where I got the knife and who did the work. These questions are always followed by a joke or some laughter that the knife fits my personality. I really like the way you customized it with the rattlesnake on the edge of the blade and the awesome skull and crossbones on the front of the knife sheath! I know that you worked extra hard to find and make that design. Those details are what makes the knife stand above any other one that I have owned. The black handle also looks cool! This is definitely the best knife that I could ever own! Thank you so much for doing an excellent job on it!
I asked Chet to make me a pair of matched bowies, one for myself, the other a gift for my best friend. I drew a picture of the shape I wanted for the knife, and asked Chet to make all the other decisions himself. The knives came out EXACTLY the right shape and size (I measured the handle to fit my hand precisely), and they were beautiful. He used matching raindrop Damascus steel for the blades, but each knife's handle used different material for the scales and guards. One knife has stainless steel guards with a mammoth tooth handle, and the other has a walrus tusk handle with nickel silver gaurds. Amazing. Chet does excellent work!
I’m extremely happy with the knife. It was far more than I expected. Thank you so much.
Dear Chet and Carol: I have to admit, when it seemed a little long on the sheath I began to get my hopes up that Carol was doing something special. I was blown away. The sheath is fantastic, much nicer than anything I have seen. I knew the knife was going to be good, I knew the sheath would be good. The combination is really really much beyond anything I expected or imagined. Thank you both very much. I will start saving for an automatic, if one comes up please keep me in mind. Thanks does not say enough.
Just got back from R and R a coupld of days ago and over jet lag last night. The knives arrived and I have given them all away. Thery turned out very nice and I will need to send you the money for the extra one in a few days. I think your original idea of the blackened blades and more ornate handle may have been the way to go but the knives were well received. Several soldiers have managed to cut themselves already! ha I took mine on patrol yesterday and showed my "Cav Knife" to several people. The antique blade is almost camoflauged and the knives are still tactical despite lookin like old school knives any good Cav soldier would have carried 150 years ago.
The knife arrived safely and WOW!!!!! I never imagined it would look that great. What a wonderful Christmas present. I am going to display it in my house with an 1873 Winchester rifle and a single-action colt revolver that I have. Thanks so much for putting so much work and love into something that will stay in my family forever. You are truly an artist.
