    Bill have you ever heard of a custom knife make by the name of Vince Evans ...he made custom knives back in the 60s and 70s...lived in Honolulu? This is a knife that he made that I have an interest in and anyone else that might know something of him please let me know.

    Bill I have just about givin up on aquiring a civil war vintage bowie knife becasue of all the fakes out there but I would like to invest in a custom made bowie knife. Would you mind reccomending a few well known custom knife makers from the last 50 years ..I think I would prefer to own something made back in the 40s to the 70s ...thank you.

    Vince Evans was living in Hawaii for years, then moved to Arizona, and is now back on the big island in Hawaii. I do not have any of his knives, but he does have some reputation in the industry as a blade smith. He uses a stock metal as well as his own make of Damascus steel.
