Al Polkowski?s knives are indeed a bit difficult to come by, but well worth the search, cost and wait once you have one in your possession. From what I have learned, he is very particular as to whom he does business with.
One thing to keep in mind is that he has many different styles, so you?ll want to check them all out. In my opinion there is absolutely no custom knife maker that is as good at constructing fully concealable fighting knives.
Since this type of carry system has gained your interest, I would really like you to be aware of your local laws pertaining to blades and concealed carry rigs. I know that carrying this type of rig in California is illegal. I have my own opinions on the matter, so it?s definitely up to you to decide. I just want to bring it to your attention so, check out your local laws. A little homework prior to your purchase would only be beneficial.
Tom, if you?d like me to address specific questions regarding blade styles that I recommend, feel free to email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
as to avoid lengthy posts that the others may not care to read. I can also turn you onto a few vendors that have a good relationship with him.
Again, good luck in your search.
Train as if your life depends on it because it does!
