Offering up for sale three custom knives - a collaborative effort by the late Jody Samson, and his apprentice, Shan-Aan. These are one of a kind pieces. She may make similar, but not exact pieces again, and are among the last of the "uncirculated" Samson pieces.

Jody passed away last December, leaving Shan-Aan his estate, and the torch to carry. These three knives were approximately 80% finished by Jody. The blades were ground, but needed final polish. The grip scales were in place, but needed final shaping and polish. Shan-Aan took over, and finished these up, and made sheaths for them.

Back to the top.

These three mini-hunters are still available.

To sweeten the pot slightly, I'll cover shipping within the United States, and will help with shipping elsewhere.



Shan-Aan may make more knives of similar form in the future, but these also have a lot of Jody's work and MOJO in them as well. These are among the last of those pieces...
