    Hi Stewart
    I have a John Jones custom knife that I got him to make me in 1992. Mine has been used often. It is a copy of a Schrade 154 ot. I must be very unlucky to have bought two Schrade fixed blade knives that had bad heat treat. Anyhow the John Jones custom fixed my problem.
    My latest problem is over the years the handle scales have cracked and part of them has broken off. Do you know someone in Brisbane who could replace the scales for me? I was thinking this time black micara scales.
    Anyhow hope you can point me in the right direction.
    Cheers
    MrTibbles

    I have seen a custom made by a New Zealander that was engraved by John Jones.
