  • Alan wood knives

    Now this is a serious thread about knives used for hunting etc and not associated with our sad culture of today..

    The reason i am posting is because i never realised that there were so many specialise people in so many fields...

    My friend Rob has waited 4 years to have a knife made for him by a guy called Alan Wood.....Alan Wood is the guy who makes knives for Ray Mears etc and he will only make a knife for you after vetting you......My friend Rob has spoken to him over the last 3 years via email so that Alan could get to know him and what makes him tick etc..... After 4 years he finally agreed to make him a knife as Rob now lives on a large acreage propertie which involves out door work,,,,

    The knife is absolutely phenominal in build quality and comes in a hand made leather sheath... The waiting list for these knives now stands at 10 years and it just astounded me that these things exsist in life with such demand...

    One for sale here , i think Rob paid £500 or £600 for his..

      I suppose he has made himself exclusive though and all credit for not jut selling them to anyone and making money hand over fist.... This is the way to make a name for yourself...

        i think it's great that he wants to get to know you 1st i guess if you are in the trade that needs such a knife he's a bit of a legend.

          Is it a ten year waiting list because he is busy or is it because the real vetting time is ten years lol.


          I think any knife should be banned unless you can prove it is used for a work purpose and it fits that purpose, you would'nt use or have a 15" knife in my field of work, but a leatherman with a 5" blade then yes (also a stanly), but both are locked away in my tool case in my car.

          Anyone caught with one on the streets with no related reason for having it should be thrown in a pit with wild dogs.

          I agree with what he has done with the vetting, but a knife is a knife, even a kitchen knife will kill so it doesnt really turn me on

            Being a chef, and using knives all day I can understand it, I generally pay 70-100 notes for a knife, if it is your trade then you need the best, makes life sooo much easier, a knife is so much more than a knife when you make your living using one. I bought my brother a full set of knives for his wedding, he couldn`t believe the difference using proper ones ...

              I think he shares your views which is why he wont make a knife for anyone....

                A friend of mine is being prosecuted by the police for having a knife in his car, even though it was locked away in his tool box. He installs sound systes etc and had a stanly knife and something a little longer, 4" I think, which is over the 3" allowed by law.

                He only uses the knife for spliting wires etc and is in a LOCKED tool box. When the police pulled him over they asked if he had anything he shouldn't he said NO but told them about the knife in his tool box. They then arrested him for it.

                Wha tpurpose does that serve than to waste yours and my tax and take someone who contributes to the economy out of work? Just because it's an easy arrest and helps towards the "knife crime" stats

                    That's just utter cr*p m8, I have a min of 2 stanley's and my leatherman as well as tube cutting blades and i'm a fault engineer for ANPR CCTV systems across the UK, we also work closly with Special Branch at Leeds/Bradford & Manchester Airport and also SOCA, even going onto airside with an armed copper from special branch i have never been pulled, they are tools of your trade.

                    If he is getting done for that, then it just shows how cr*p this British Goverment is...... The sooner i get out of here the better

                      surely the massive spanner in the tool box that you could be battered with isn't dangerous anymore but the small stanley knife is, this is total madness, in reality the cops could do you for almost everything then, if it's a tool in a toolbox. then there is no intent to use it as a weapon.... someone being a little over zealous me thinks
