Well I make knives but I don't know if I would fit into what you are looking for. However I don't make pocket knives yet, they are in the works probably next year.
I prefer carrying a neck knife. I carry a pocket knife also but only as a backup.
We live on just under 10 acres and raise our own chickens, dairy cows, goats and horses. The plan is to try and grow most our own food, but that is pretty challenging. I am hoping to implement some permaculture into are farm but I am finding it is a challenge to get my work done. 10 acres is enough work for 10 people lol.
I like the ideal of looking for an old knife. I have a knife that I am going to be doing a post on how to repair or replace the handle on. I feel one of the most important skills is knowing how to sharpen a knife.
Knives will always get dull no mater how good the knife is, even ceramic knives will get dull but it is the knowledge and skill of sharpening that allows your knife to save time, energy, and remain a useful tool!
Good luck on your search for a knife!
