    Steve Dunn in Smith's Grove but be prepared to wait, there's a long line ahead of you. Some of his knives are going for thousands of dollars so he might be a bit pricy too.

    Can't find his personal web page and I know he used to have one but he's made some of the finest knives I've ever seen and now he's doing engraving on guns too, they are all show pieces.

    If you're in a hurry, he might recommend someone to you. Good luck.

    Ever find anyone? I work with a guy who's a great knife maker. I had him restore a WWII navy knife I had. And I know a few other coworkers that have had him build custom knives for Christmas presents this year. I highly recommend him. You can check out some of his work on his FB page. Look up Stolberg Steel.

    He said to just reach out to him on Facebook. He said he used to do it through calls and texts, but it got to be too much to keep straight. So he now uses FB so he can keep track of where everyone is in line.

    But I've seen his work up close and had him fix a knife for me. You won't be disappointed. He won't let you.
