I recently learned about this wizard, when I saw a few lots in Ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281426889899 first knife

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281408786464 World's Largest Handmade Bowie

http://www.ebay.com/itm/361052890136

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171509603510

then I found this review of the Japanese compared Randall and Cooper.
http://www12.ocn.ne.jp/~zenknife/knife/cooper.html

It impressed me.

Next, I found information about itself Cooper
http://www.knifemakersdatabase.com/CustomKnivesSale/CustomKnives/CooperCustomKnives.html

and some more information here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Nelson_Cooper

The price of his knives are the same as for Randall.
I've been looking for a suitable option and found smile

there is a little rusty plaque on the one hand, but I think it can be easily removed.

Yes, it is sometimes difficult to understand the Japanese through translator.

Meanwhile, I found more information about Cooper knives:

It is a pity that they no longer produce.

Today made larger photos.
Then I make a picture in nature.

The knife is very comfortable in the hand smile

Accidentally stumbled upon this video on the net today.
Let it be here, a good master.

Cooper was one of the original custom knife makers from the 1960's and is in the Hall of Fame. Nice one.
