What lies beyond the walls of the production knife world? What is something that simply cannot be done by Reate, WE, CKF, or Chris Reeve? The truthful answer is: “Not much.” But this, this is something that is beyond production. Its refinement, its precision, and its attention to detail are beyond what is done. I don’t think it is beyond what could be done, but is certainly beyond what could be done to scale or done profitably. Think of this as more of a tour to what you get when you step away from knives made en masse to knife making as craft. The Dino is an extraordinary piece from an extraordinary maker. And it is a reminder of why custom knives are worthwhile. Sit back and enjoy, this is one hell of a knife.
Here is Thys’s Home Page. Here is his IG account. He has no regular dealers, instead finishing knives one at a time, by hand, for one customer at a time. There is no product page. There are no other reviews, video or otherwise. Here is my review sample, purchased with a year’s savings of Space Bucks, and mine to keep until the heat death of the universe or until I pass away whichever happens first.
Love the look of this knife.View Linked Article
