    The ones we get issued aren’t actually made by altberg, they’re made under license in Romania I believe?

    Ok, so to play devils advocate. Had one a few years ago, asked for £150 for materials, sent the cash.

    Knife was completed, not to the spec that was agreed, he insisted on me paying the remaining £100, I refused and he sold the knife elsewhere. What do…

    That’s the thing, I don’t want to cast aspersions or take anything away from the guy. It just seems like it could be a leap of faith.

    Simple really, if a knife, or any tool really, doesn’t feel right in use, probably for reasons you can’t even name, it’ll never be “right” no matter how much you paid for it. It doesn’t matter how much you spent on the item, if it doesn’t…
