I'm looking to get a couple custom knifes made for presents.
They're essentially a general purpose spreading knife, probably best described a variation of a palette knife.
Couple pics can be found at the following links -

Several attempts have been made to find replacements, but nothing similar has ever been found. That one dates from the mid 90s, and the other one that finally snapped last year (with a far better shaped handle!), was even older.

I'd like to get a couple replacements made if possible, however all my searches for knife makers turn up solid knife makers. So does anybody know of any knife makers who might be able to make something like this, or at least point me in the direction of somebody who can?

Cheers Greeny.

I have since found out what I'm looking for is better known as a Sandwich Knife/Spreader, and are more common over the other side of the big pond. Managed to get one via Amazon's global marketplace from a known manufacturer, failing that there's a couple more options, but postage will be far more.
