Todd. Got the knife today.
You really build a beautiful knife. I have probably purchased
around 35 knives over the past 12-15 months. Sometimes on ebay the
pictures of other makers
knives that I bought made them look better than when I received them in
person. When I unwrapped
yours, it was just the opposite. The pictures didn't due the knife
justice. The craftsmanship is
unmatched and the knife is truly a piece of art, but I can't wait to skin my
first deer with it.
I will be purchasing a knife for my father in the real near future from you and
many more for
myself. Keep up the great work. Sincerely,
Looks like I will need another Mink as my son has got it and will not give
it back. ha ha.
He asked me to tell you that the mink is the best knife he has ever used to
dress out deer.
There is no telling how many he has dressed in his 30 plus years of hunting, but
itís well over a
hundred plus others he has dressed out for members of our hunting club. We took
two this past
weekend and the Mink and the whitetail 3 were used to dress them out.
We both have Randalls
but the Mink puts them to shame! My son believes you need to market the Mink in
other then just ebay. Itís that
good of a knife! Have a Merry Christmas. Danny
AMAZING KNIVES, BEYOND ANY EXPECTATIONS! Charles
Todd! This gives me even more appreciation for what's behind the art.
I've looked at
lots of knives on the internet and even have another custom knife I bought
before I found
Skyblade, yet your quality and artistry can't be beat. The knife's simple
lines, and uncomplicated
beauty are really appealing. Some other knives Iíve seen look far too
adorned and exotic that
they're overdone. Yours have a clean and natural appeal to them that
moves the user to linger
and stare in admiration. Thanks
again, Todd. Jim
I can't believe it! The knife is beautiful. Truly a special
gift for a special occasion.
Thanks so much. Bob
is a WORK OF ART and the maker is great to deal with! Deb
We had our family Christmas party last night and my husband's brother and
loved their knives. thank you so much. Sandra
Todd. Thanks for taking care of my buddy. His girlfriend Cindy just ordered an Eagle from you
today. Her boyfriend saw my Goshawk while I was in Texas last week on a deer and
He fell in love with the useability and quality of your knife. Thanks
again for getting one sent
out in short order. Tom. Pittsburgh
Nobody does it better! Great Knife! Dan
Todd. Another great knife from one of the best.
I have one Randall but I think yours are better
in my book. Hope to get another one soon. Keep up the great work.
am speechless. You are a total
craftsman, producing the best quality custom made knives I
have ever put in my hand. The set you made for me is superb in every way. I am
delighted, and will look forward to seeing your new designs.
Thank you for your fast service
and superior workmanship.
Flipping cool! Love it! Worth every cent + a warranty!
Flipping cool! William
My son asked me to email and let you know that of all the knives he has used to
out a deer ( he has killed well over a hundred ) that he never had a knife that
dressed out a deer
like the Mink with the thumb grooves . The little Mink dressed out 4 deer
today. Hope you have
some luck with your elk hunting. Danny
Todd. Thanks very much for your care in shipping and the extra
attention... What can I say
other than ITS BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the wood. You are truly a credit to
Unfortunately, I can already see that I must have just 1 more. Thanks
These are works of art. Fantastic price! John
, Canít thank you enough. I
know how busy you have been. My son
is tickled to death
over them. He came by after work
for a couple of hours and he held the knife the entire time.
Thanks again for a job well done. Dan
am impressed with your quality and attention to detail. This one really caught
my eye. It is art.
I am eager to show it off to my friends. Only one problem Ė one is not enough! Iíll be back!!
I collect custom knives. Skyblade is excellent quality and
craft. Absolutely beautiful. Best
deal ever. I'll be back. Jon
Got my Summit X Skinner, and Man, what a knife. She's very well
balanced with a big
old thick blade and nice Cocobolo scales. The finish on this knife is
second to none and the
sheath is first rate. I've found a new blade smith and I'll be spreading the
word. Thanks. Bill W.
Always the best quality. Superior and exceptional
craftsmanship. You will not go wrong here.
Eight knives in two years - a collectors dream. Faron
here. Good hearing from you. I'd like to get another one of your knives. When
thinks of quality, it has to be a Skyblade.
Here in Fla we are somewhat blessed with Knife
makers. We had the Fla guild meeting a while back. I met a gent called Hoot
what I understand he's suppose to be ranked #3 knife maker in the world??
I really don't think
his work has anything on you. His
are good, but yours are really good! Wish
I had the money
to be buying more of yours. Regards. Lonnie
Todd. Man, what a knife! Well balanced and finished to a T. A
true piece of art. Bill
Todd: I received the knife set, and I want to tell you something
you have heard before: WOW!
They are so much better when you actually get them in your hand.
Smooth, sleek, balanced,
beautiful, the hand of the knives is amazing.
I am so very impressed at the craftsmanship and
quality of these knives. Todd, you
are really a superb knife-maker. Thank
you, I will be talking
soon, detailing a custom set with you. Jim
Todd. I received the Whitetail 3 knife today and it is just great.
The thumb grooves are just what
I wanted. They are absolutely great. They made the knife not just a good knife,
but a great knife.
I hope you put them on all of your hunting knives in the future. Thanks again
for a great all
around hunting knife. The Mink with the thumb grooves dressed out its 5th deer
of the season
this past weekend. It is a great knife for dressing out a deer. Keep up the
good work. Danny
Beautiful knife. Excellent
craftsmanship. Very professional product and seller. Mike
Todd. Another wonderfully crafted piece. It's certainly one unique
and solid looking knife,
pretty much exactly what I had in mind. Thank
Todd. Received the knife today. It's beautiful... you do
awesome work. Thanks. Chuck
Todd. If you have a day job - quit. Make more
the Yellowstone. A sweet knife. The
redwood handle is super. Thanks and keep up the
good work. Marvin
Beautiful knife. Museum quality. Todd is the number 1 knifemaker in
the world. David
Todd! My husband received the knife in the mail yesterday. We
were both impressed by its
beauty! Thank you so much. My husband is going to treasure it.
Own 7+ pieces, Art & Funtion combined, a favored seller. Best of the
Todd. Really looking forward in getting this knife as I think
itís the one Iíve been looking for,
for years. You will get a kick out of this; I was sitting in my den
watching a movie the other
night and at the same time was wiping my knives down with a silicon cloth before
I put them
back in one of Dale Dorris` display cases. To make it short I had the whitetail
model in my hand
and wasnít paying attention to what I was doing and dropped it ,it stuck very
(about 1 Ĺ inches) in my upper leg and I wound up in the ER getting a bunch of
Thatís what happens when you play around with a good knife . Doctor got a kick
out of it.
So if you ever need someone to testify as to the balance and sharpness of your
knives I sure
can do that. You should post a warning with your knives to keep out of the hands
drunks and dummies ( I fall into that one ).
Take care. Danny
A real artist, a real super person to deal with
and an excellent knife, Thanks!! Philip
Todd. The Madison 5 arrived today. SUPERB KNIFE!
Thanks for this very nice and colored
handle that makes this knife so original and uncommon. Thanks for all. Best
Todd. I was earlier going to email you and see if you received my
check, and if the knife had
shipped yet. Then the mailman came with a package from you. Talk about Christmas
This knife is an absolute work or art, and I couldnít be more impressed with
and functional design. Even the sheath is beautiful, and a nice, snug fit.
I will also be happy to
spread the word about Skyblade knives to all my outdoorsman and industry
friends. Now, I just
hope that I get a chance to use it this fall.
Again Todd, thanks for accommodating my sudden
need for a great knife, and the speed in which you got it too me.
All the best, Erik J.
Todd , as usual great knife and outstanding
workmanship A++++ Danny
the Talus knife today and already thinking about my next SKYBLADE knife for
near future. I also have a Moose 5 so am thinking about a folding knife for next
here at work is VERY impressed with the knife I received today.
Todd ... you are SUCH a bad man!!! This knife is wonderful ... pretty
to look at, sharper
than anything Iíve felt in a long, LONG while (except the Mink model I
got from you earlier this
week), balanced just right, feels great
in the hand and
has some real weight to it. I just hate a
wimpy knife!! Waiting until
you finish the new custom design we've discussed is going to be
doubly hard now and it's just 'killing' me that my boyfriend won't get to drool
beauties until he gets back from the Middle East. And to think, Iím
going to get all the rewards
for your hard work!! (giggles) :) Thanks
and keep the goodies coming. Mary
Thanks Todd. This is my ninth skyblade and it's great as always.
Oops, was so excited I hit the send button before I finished typingÖwhere did
I leave off.
Oh yeah, At any rate, this Tulipwood Madison 4 knife is absolutely gorgeous.
I havenít seen or
felt one like it, period. You have a tremendously great talent and skill.
Canít wait to see the
others I special ordered. I will quit my job if you teach me. We can
possibly make a reality tv
show about it. Maybe call it ĎThe Apprentice: Big Sky Styleí.
Anyway, your skill has intrigued
me very much. I think you have definitely cracked the code for knife
making. I can only
imagine having such a talent. Thank
you Obi-Wan. Chris
I got back into town last night and the knife was on my door step. Thank
you for shipping
it so quickly. I must say it is better than I could have imagined. I have been
eyeing your website
for over a year trying to decide what I wanted and was going back and forth
between a few.
This knife is absolutely beautiful and will not be my last Skyblade Knife. Thank
you much. Jake
Got the knife today. WoW! It is truly something to be proud of. Thanks. A+
Todd. I am finally back at work digging out from mail and phone calls.
What do I find on my
desk - a package from you containing a beautiful moose skinner! This one
is really great! Last
night, pulled out all three matching knives - what a set. The really match
very well. Cannot
wait to get them in action this fall. Beautiful rugged artistic cutlery!
Thanks for the custom
work!!! Thanks again, Matt
Todd Orr has cracked all of "the codes" for custom-professional
knife making. Chris
knife came yesterday. WOW!
These are too nice to use. I'll
be very proud to carry and
show it off. What an edge!
You are a true craftsman. Very
glad I found SKYBLADE KNIVES.
Thanks again. DAN
A well made knife that
anyone would be proud to own. A++++ Danny
This is Andy D. I am one of 4 Pistoles that you made knives for. Just
wanted to tell you
what a great job you did and what a fantastic knife we have.
Here in Texas, it is perfectly OK
for me walk around with my knife fully open bragging about it to everyone I see.
impressed. It's so nice that I may be uncomfortable using it for the
first time but I guess I will
jump that hurdle when the time comes. Wish
you made shotguns. Andy
Beautiful knife, fits quality
sheath like a glove. Strong, usable ART!! Thanks! Deb
I was amazed when I saw this incredible knife you've made for Dave. He is
absolutely love it! Naturally, the VERY FIRST THING I did was to take a
tissue to wipe where
I touched the blade and slice my finger. Wow! Talk about sharp to a
razor's edge. The razor's
edge has nothing on this blade! The handles are gorgeous!!!! When he
sees those handles he
will probably cry. I cannot believe the file work you went to all that
trouble to create. It is all
truly awesome! What a beautiful knife.
Thank you so much. The sheath is beautiful, also.
He will love it!!! I am truly amazed at what you've done in such a short
amount of time. Dave
is going to be on a quest to have this knife on the cover of Blade. It
sure deserves it (actually
you're the one who deserves it)! Todd, you've made this Christmas very
special. I can't thank
you enough for everything. We have and will continue to tell everyone
about you and the kind
of outstanding work you do. God Bless you this Christmas and always, Todd.
admiration and gratitude. Your friend, Sherry
Outstanding knife A great
knife for the outdoorsman A+++ Danny
wow!! The first thing i saw when I opened the box and unwrapped the
knife was the
beautifully tooled sheath - it's a work of art in itself! I noticed
the craftsmen at Madison Saddlery
even curved the belt loop to match the curve of the knife handle ... very nice
attention to detail.
I think you may be right - brown shows off the tooling of the leather - black
wouldn't be nearly as
nice, in this case. The ebony handle of the knife with its silver mosaic pins
just begs to be
gripped. Did you happen to see that on one side of the handle, there
is a pattern in the wood
that looks like an eagle's wing open in flight?
Very professional businessman combined with outstanding artisan abilities.
unsnapped the sheath and drew it forth. Heavy but comfortable with a guard
that cradles your
hand ... and the blade! Todd, it's absolutely lovely. The length is
perfect - I am soooooo glad
you decided to go longer on the blade. Thank you so much for all the time
and effort you put
into acquiring just the right steel with which to make it.
I can't wait until I can present it to its
namesake; I believe David will love it as much as I do.
did a great job. I showed the Steele Eagle to a gentleman in my
office. He was floored!
He said it's gorgeous, has a comfortable feel, fits his hand
really well, and that it's so heavy
(it weighed in on the shipping scale at 1 pound, 15 oz.) that it's more like
holding the grip of a
gun than a knife. He loved the look and compared it to that huge Bowie
that Crocodile Dundee
waved at the punks in the film (Now, THAT'S a knife!).
Outstanding knife. Your knives are the best kept secert in the knife
world A+++++ Dannis
handed out the matched folding knives that you made. The are beautiful.
We all wore
them on our belts for the rest of the evening. Thanks so much for putting
them together. I have
never seen a folder like these. Ed
I'm Jim S, the youngest of the S. brothers. Wanted to let you know
how much I like the
knives you did for us. They are awesome in craftsmanship and in artwork.
This is my second
Skyblade and I am extremely happy with both. My passion is big game
hunting, and this year
I have a Dall Sheep, Desert Sheep, and two mule deer hunts planned.
I hope I get a lot of
blood on that knife. Thanks again Todd for creating such a special knife
for our family. Jim
Outstanding; a well made knife; true hunters knife. not just for
show as many others are. D
Todd. Just a quick thank you for our Eagle folders which we have recently
of us are very pleased and are
already considering our next purchase. It
has been a pleasure
dealing with you. Kind regards.
John and Jon.
This knife ROCKS! Fred
Todd. Just wanted to thank you for
another awesome knife. It is as beautiful as I expected.
Todd, got my knife today, and it is sweet! One of the best buys I have made.
for the fast service and your super craftsmanship!
my Bobcat arrived. I cut myself twice in the first two minutes of ownership. I
need to rub the blade with a soft cloth, well the rest is history and two band
aids. Wow is it
sharp. It is so wonderful Todd I don't want to use it! I was and still am
stunned at how
beautiful it is. The feel and balance of the Bobcat are second to no knife in
the world. You are
truly a master knifemaker. The talent and love you put into each blade is a
testimony to your
own character. I am a new customer but I assure you. I will be a repeat
customer. The custom
engraving you did for us Psalm 139 is stunning. The fact that you refused to take a penny more
for your labors is another testimony to your true nature.
The SKYBLADE is in a class by itself
and you have earned my respect and admiration.
God Bless. David and Sherry
Todd. The knife arrived today. It's
perfect. This summit hunter model looks great and is very
well balanced in the hand. Thanks for this fantastic piece of art work.
The best skinning knife that I`ve ever owned A+++. Danny
The knife came today. Beautiful job, itís exactly what I wanted.
Couldnít be happierÖ
already had a couple guys looking at it real close at work. Iíll be
showing it off, so I hope I
get you some more business. Iíve got this baaaad feeling that one just
isnít enough for me
eitherÖ Thanks for everything. Dennis
when I first laid eyes on the Madison 4 I knew at once I had to have it.
thought about our upcoming trip for a week long journey into nature. This knife
was God sent.
I was worried as the other bidders kept the price climbing higher and higher out
of our reach.
But finally I gave it up to the Lord and bid $190.00.
All we could EVER come up with financially.
I am so pleased it seems to be working out. We will see in about 19 hours.
David and Sherry.
it today. It looks great, I am very happy with the quality and
No wonder to was difficult to out bid the others. Thanks for everything, AJ
Todd. I received my knife today (a Bison 4 RWB no 066) It is so beautiful that i
tears in my eyes. I made you that
order cause I want something special for my 40th Birthday.
Words are missing for describe the beauty and quality of the knife. I got
several other valuable
knives, but no one came close to this one.
When I got it in my hand I
feel that this knife have a
soul and represent respect. Thank
you very much for making a wonderful piece of art.
I will try
to send you picture this autumn of the knife in action on my Hunting expedition.
I have so many of your knives now, I donít think Iíll ever be able to
give them all away,
much less use them all. I gave one of those summit hunters to my 13 year
old son when we
went whitetail hunting in West Texas. He field dressed an eight point
whitetail buck and a doe,
as well as a pretty good Axis buck. (I helped him a little with my summit
skinner.) The knives
worked great. Feels good, handles good. Really sharp, and stay that
Todd: Now as for the Moose knife -
THANK YOU for the sheath that fits well and looks great.
That is now the best looking knife on earth. That will be my first-line
knife for every deer hunt -
and hopefully moose, elk, and caribou too if some long-range plans fall into
place. That knife
is incredibly beautiful - a true functional work of art. I have not yet
shown my son - I will just
use it for something when he is around and watch his eyes light up. He was
drooling over the
wolverine skinner. Thanks again and
best wishes, Matt
They arrived today. In a word: "Wow!". These
are better than I had expected (and I
expected a lot)! The fit and finish is perfect and they all feel just
right somehow. I can't wait
to do more business with you! Harry
my knife this morning and it is a BEAUTIFUL AND USEFULL WORK OF ART.
for the extra effort concerning my address mixup from ebay.
It has been a pleasure. James
Your knives perform very well dressing deer. Sharp as a razor, maybe
Just wanted to share the thank you note I received from my nephew Jon.
(Uncle Wylie and Aunt Lynn, I
wanted to thank you for the amazing knife that you gave me for
graduation. I have never seen anything like it. The craftsmanship is
outstanding, the edge is
razor sharp, and the design is actually very functional despite its beautiful,
appearance. It's so rare these days for something to be beautiful, well
made, and completely
functional. While I would not want to actually dirty it up field dressing an
animal, I have
complete confidence that it is well suited for it.
I can't believe the Pistolies are stalling on
investing in pieces made by this excellent craftsman.
Thank you again. Jonathan.
free to quote any part of this letter the next time the knives come up in
The above item arrived this date. I
must say your knives are superb. This past
Sunday the Gator Guild held their yearly show. Some really nice knives, but
one of your knives for any one of them. Regards.
I received my new Summit Hunter with the dropped point and cocobolo
other day. I really like it a lot. Like all your knives, the
craftsmanship is excellent. I donít
know how many of your knives I have bought, but everyone that I have given one
they are great. Best regards, GARY
New Year to you. I recently purchased one of your large Kestrel folders in

Yup, the knife was amazing. Totally pleased.
I've been handing your cards out to some

Thanks again, Greg
Todd. Just wanted to make sure you
knew that I did receive the customized 4" Bison you
had been working on, and in a nutshell, I'm absolutely thrilled. It's
technically flawless, and has that something extra that makes it's truly special
Anyways, just wanted to thank you for such a quality piece of work.
Look forward to working
on that "Skowie" design when you get the time.
Christmas to you too. Love the
knife. will be ordering one for myself very soon.
Love how it is so balanced. Nice work!!
Todd. Received the 4" Bison
today, and I must say I'm speechless. Although
i had very
high expectations for my first knife from you, having now received it, I can
only say that it has
exceeded my expectations in every regard. I
cannot get over how you managed to customize
the finger guard EXACTLY as I had envisioned (it fits like a glove!), and with
only a couple
feeble sketches from me to work from. The whole knife just exudes quality....
material to fit to finish to feel to asthetics. Virtually flawless. I
believe it most likely is the
|most gorgeous knife I have ever had the pleasure to handle, let alone own.
Look forward to
working on the next one! Much
thanks for creating something so wonderful that I'll enjoy for
a lifetime. Greg
I arrived home today to find a package from you. I just wanted to drop
you a note and
let you know that I couldnít be more pleased! Outstanding work! Itíll make a
great gift for my
father. Thanks again. Dwain
Todd, The Knife arrived this date. What a beauty, Nothing unusual. Todd's knives
always a piece of art. I've seen
the master of art. Your knives take
back seat to no one.
Thanks. keep up the great
work. Regards Lonnie
TODD, I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW HOW HAPPY I AM WITH MY NEW KNIFE.
I COULDíNT PUT IT DOWN OR STOP SHOWING IT OFF! THANKS!
Todd. The wolverine skinner that
you made for me is great. So far, it has skinned 5
whitetail deer. Very nice knife indeed! I am very glad that you put
my name on the blade or
it would already be gone. My son tried to take it and then he saw the
engraved name. ha!
I just finished up deer hunting in Northern Texas and in Western Pa. I
Summit Hunter that I purchased from you last year to field dress 5 white tails. This
performed like no other knife that I have owned. It holds its edge, it
fits great in your hand,
and it looks like a million bucks. I had several people want to see this knife
me go to work on my deer. My biggest problem was making sure they gave it back
I like to buy all kinds of new hunting toys, and I can honestly say that your
knife has been my
best purchase in years. Keep up the great work and you can bet I will be back
for more. Tom
AFTER I CHECKED OUT YOUR SITE I KNEW I WANTED ONE OF YOUR KNIVES.
I CANT WAIT TO SHOW IT OFF! THANK YOU! DAN
knives look wonderful. Someday I can save up to get one. Keep making
Good Luck and God Bless you.
Today I got my Madison 5 and I've got to say that I love it. If it
is anything like the
pheasant that I bought from you then this will be a deer butchering blade.
As for the pheasant,
it has just gutted, and skinned out #3. It is still very sharp.
I love this little knife. As a matter of
fact I have "retired" my other knives as this little one is all I
need. I will however use the
Madison to butcher the deer in my basement fridge. Great product and a
great deal. Paul M.
Todd. I just wanted to let you know
that I got a lot of compliments on your knife and the
sheath. The bad part is my Dad said you can give that knife to me for
Christmas. So I will be
looking for another knife as you sell them. I did get to use your knife to
skin a deer and it
performed perfectly. It fit my hand just right and it was SHARP!!!!!!.
I would recommend
your knife to any hunter. Thanks Robert
Todd: I had the new skinner for
only two days and it already has seen action. I skinned
out a deer and it worked great. Nice sweeping blade shape. Good
handle shape for various
grips while skinning. I have been a hunter and trapper for about
30 years so I have skinned a
PILE of critters. This is the nicest shape blade for skinning big game.
Over the next month,
this knife will skin at least 10 more deer. Thanks and best wishes, Matt
Todd: I just received the knife.
Thanks for the speedy service. Your work is beautiful! The
sheath is great too! Hopefully, will use this knife for skinning this
weekend. best wishes, Matt
Todd - I wanted to let you know how much I like this knife. It's been several
months since I
received it and archery season in Ohio certainly did help initiate the
Moose model. On opening
day I killed a big doe for the freezer and three weeks later I scored on a nice
Pope and Young 8
pt. whitetail. This knife is absolutely awesome to use and feels great wearing
it on my belt. Talk
about a working edge. I haven't seen a knife anywhere that holds an edge like
this one. I'll be
contacting you a bit later to discuss some options on one of the folders. I just
wanted to share
the pics of two very successful hunts thus far this season. Thanks again Todd
for such an
outstanding product. Rog
Todd. I love it and I'm sure my father will too! I will try to get you
some more business
with friends and family that I show off the knife to.
This is a name of a very high quality professional knifemaker. I found
him on ebay and
bought a knife. His name is Todd
Orr and the knives are called Skyblade. I have bought several
quality, custom knives. This is the best I have found. As much hunting as you
do, and the friends
you know, you should try one. Mike)
the way...the pheasant that I bought for myself is still going strong after
gutting out and
cutting out two deer does. Thanks for making such a great item. Paul
Todd, Got the Summit Hunter with
Brass/cocobolo today, and I am so happy with it. Perfect.
That is the only word I have for your construction.
Thanks so much for everything. It is a damn
fine blade. Shoulda been there to see my niece's eyes pop when I shaved a
bit of hair off my
arm with it. And it matches my other blade perfectly.
just purchased one of your knives over e-bay and received it yesterday.
Very nice knife, and
I am quite pleased, fine craftsmanship and a nice edge.
This is really a nice looking knife.
I need look no further for a real craftsman. Lonnie
it was my design but it was your skill and craftsmanship that brought it
to life. I see the
same skill & craftsmanship in the other 3 knives of yours that have come my
in Missouri we cherish our outdoor gear. Your knives are beautiful! spence
knife is OUTSTANDING. It looks incredible! I'm as happy as a clam with hands. Kevin
if you didn't catch that......WOW!!!!!
I bought my first Skyblade knife last year and was absolutely blown away with
beautiful design, craftsmanship and functionality in the field. So when I bought
my second one
this year the bar was set pretty high. The new Goshawk that you made for me came
and well Todd you have done it again. This folding knife is fantastic. The Madison
handle with a tint of red sets this knife off as a true work of art. It
will look great as well as
function great in the upland game fields of North Texas. You can bet that I will
be buying my
third Skyblade knife real soon. I can't wait to see how you will top my 2 other
knifes. Itís hard to
imagine. Thanks again.
Tom Pittsburgh, PA
The knife is a keeper. Thanks for making me such an awesome knife.
A friend of mine
who collects knives was dazed and amazed by the knife, especially the handle.
He said he
never saw burl like that before. I showed him your web site. Thanks
Todd. You do really nice work from what I can see and I would like to have
one of your
creations in my collection. Just beautiful craftsmanship. Thanks for
the personal reply, too. Mike
got the knife today. Excellent! You were correct. The picture didn't
do it justice. Larry
The carving set arrived today. It is absolutely gorgeous!!
This will definately be passed
down to my son some day and become a family heirloom. Thanks for the good

First thing he said was
"Can I use it?" in reference to the finish(polish) and the
craftsmanship. He is VERY
You are right, I love the feel of the Caribou. It'll be a couple of months.
Thank You. Kevin
I received the Caribou today. I'm very happy. I'm sure my friend will be
outstanding knife. I'm looking forward to seeing the Centurion. It does sound
like a great color
combination. Thank You, Kevin
for the blade. It is my second of yours, and my only other knife. I
plan to use this one,
and put my other knife into "collector" retirement on my mantle.
The "yellowstone" and had
been good to me this year. Thanks
Just to let you know, my knife arrived. Fantastic, Thankyou.
Love the Redwood handle

You do absolutely BEAUTIFUL work. I hope you thrive and prosper.
Be well and safe. Bill
this wonderful country of good people Iím proud to see that you take so much
pride in your
work. I hope you can be an example to many Americans of the quality we can have
own craftsmen. I just saw your
knives and was compelled to give credit where itís due. You
keep up the good craftsmanship and let everyone see what made in America means.
this fine nation and the few craftsmen left in it.
arrived in great shape and they
look fine. Thank you for your efforts and talent. Paul
I received the knives today and couldn't be more pleased. Great looking
designs. They both will be used. Thanks for a fun smooth transaction. Dan
a great work of art! Your knives look like they have so much feeling put into
impressed. I cant wait to get one!
thank you! Kevin
Bought a Moose 4, two years back at the Bozeman Angler and love it.
You do phenomenal work. Thanks. Joshua
I was on vacation last week and it was a real treat to return to the
office and find the
second set of Skyblades on my desk. The Curly Koa is still my
favorite handle material but I am
very pleased to also have a Madison Maple knife in the collection now.
Thanks for doing such a
great job on these knives. I will enjoy them for a long time to come.
Thanks for getting the knife to me so quickly! I'm going to enjoy using
this knife very
much. The balance and feel are perfect for what I'll use it for. The
Zebrawood handle is
stunning, and your fit from handle to bolster is perfect, as are your pins
and lanyard hole.
Very nice. Thank you. P.S.
I got the knife yesterday, it's beautiful!! Bob loves it! I'm
looking forward to the next knife
in the Summit X series, keep me posted. Thanks
so much, Linda
Todd, I just received the Summit
Knife today . . . really beautiful. The workmanship is superb
and the stainless steel decorative rivets are a great design given there size .
. . really nice.
Thanks alot for all the work you put into this one. The wood handle has
the type of activity I was
looking for. Again, its a beautiful knife and the sheath is the color I
Thanks for your time.... much appreciated . . . Regards, Reuben
Todd, Knife arrived this morning. It's superb, one of the
finest in my collection. It will be
user and not just "left in the case" but I am already impressed with
it. Thanks for getting it to me
so quickly. The only bummer was that UK Customs charged me $90 tax !
Ouch. Such is life -
I would very much like to get another of your knives at a later date for my
hunting buddy. I know
he will be well jealous when he sees this one.
Thanks again. Best
love to have one of every knife you make! Then I'd go broke and would have to
call off my
Alaska trip. Like I told you
before, it's well worth the wait for the knife the I've ordered.
just received the other one a couple of days back; looks great.
I first purchased one of your
knives about eight years ago while vacationing in Bozeman; it was just the small
one, but I use
it for everything-on the job and in the kitchen.
My kids jokingly call it the ďMontana SlasherĒ
because I make such a big deal about. I
was excited to find you on the web and to find you on
Ebay. I plan to pick up a couple
more so that each of my boys can have one to hang on to for a
|lifetime. Keep up the great work.
Todd. I wanted to drop you a quick
note letting you know that I received my Skyblade; the
Moose 5 model. It's a beautiful knife and the fit and finish is superb!
I had planned to use it as a
working knife and probably will but I can see where it could be considered as
a piece of art for
display. Keep up the great work! Steve
The knives arrived today. I am absolutely stunned at the beauty of
the Koa wood.
The pictures were great but they didn't
even come close. As soon as I unwrapped the first one,
I immediately remembered what you said about the 3-D effect. I had no idea
what you meant
until I saw the knife. I have played with them for hours in the sunlight
and still can't get over the
effect. Absolutely unbievable!
In a way, its almost a shame that the wood is so stunning because
it takes attention away from the equally impressive blade work. These are
truly works of art. I
couldn't be happier with my purchase.
I'm hooked. Ed
REAL TESTIMONIALS 2004/2005
the Moose 5 today! Absolutely beautiful and worth the wait.
What balance! The sheath
is awesome as well. Everything I thought it would be. The knife is so
nice that I have a hard time
believing that this will become a working knife for me in the field.
I've waited for years to find a
knife that has this much character and beauty. Todd, you are an outstanding craftsman and
bladesmith. The other knifemakers
should mirror what you produce. Thanks again,
purchased my first Skyblade knife in 1993. I was so impressed by the
durability that I have
refused to use any other knife. A testimony to the quality of the knives -
one year I used the
Bighorn model to field dress 2 caribou, 10 deer, 2 antelope and 1 elk during one
without needing to have the blade sharpened. I have purchased six more
Skyblades of different
styles for various uses. If you're
looking for an excellent quality knife for hunting, fishing or home
use, Skyblade Knives are the only way to go! Marc Charnholm.
I just wanted to say thanks again for a truly wonderful knife. I have had
a chance to use it
on several deer this year, both in Texas and in the hardwoods of PA. Each
time my Summit
Hunter worked flawlessly. This is simply the best built, sharpest knife
that I have ever owned...
and it looks great too..... You have been great to work with and your
craftsmanship in building
knives is the best there is. Have a great Holiday Season. I will
definitely buy more. Tom
are an outstanding craftsman. WOW!!! Very
pleased with my purchase. Thanks!
Hey Todd! I got the knife I ordered from you just a few days
ago. Thank you so much! It is
absolutely beautiful! I know my
husband will love it. Thanks so much for rushing my order. Trish
Todd, Anyone looking for a
quality, custom knifeólook no further! I am holding a beautifully
handcrafted, SKYBLADE knife for my unborn son, which bears his name engraved
into the blade.
The superb quality and craftsmanship that Todd puts into each blade is
unequaled for the price
one pays. In past custom knife purchases, I have trusted only one person,
and his prices exceeded
$300 a knife. But now, after having
purchased a Skyblade knife and held this fine work of art, I
know without a doubt, I will be buying more Skyblade Knives from Todd Orr in the
Received the knives and I can only say three words: Outstanding, Awesome,
Todd. The knife is truly awesome. The caribou is indeed a quality knife and the madison
handle is truly beautiful. A plus
for the quality sheath as well. This
is indeed my best and favorite
knife. I can't wait to use it for
hunting this season. You now have a
new sales rep in Maryland.
I will indeed spread your name to my hunting buddies as well as to any new
admiring hunters I
meet in Maryland. Thanks! Tony
Todd. The quality of your knives is equal to, if not
other custom knives I have seen.
This now makes 4 Skyblade knives for me? Am I done yet???
Weíll see? Paul

knives were a true pleasure to use, outstanding balance and proportion for
(Bison 3 and Wolverine), functional beyond normal expectation and
ability. Not only did I use it on my own 3 deer, they were used on
three others and 8 Canada
Geese. The bonus was the questions and compliments from all the
others in camp as they
watched and then handled your knives! Leo
I received the knife yesterday in the mail. WOW! I was extremely
pleased. I have great
admiration for people who have developed
a skill to the level required to produce such a beautiful
piece of work. Your attention to detail and pride in your work really show
through. I will certainly
show all my friends and spread the word. Anyone would be hard pressed to
find a nicer knife
anywhere, at any price. Thanks, Craig
- First of all, let me tell you that your knives are without a doubt the most
knives that I've seen from any custom knife maker. I've literally looked
for years for a knife that has
the eye appeal that yours do. The handles float into the blade which
I personally feel is important
for continuity and practicality. Roger
Todd, Hope you are enjoying the New Year. I have been a lifelong knife
enthusiast and am
constantly buying, selling and swapping knives. I consider it a hobby but my
wife would probably
call it an obsession. I have had literally hundreds if not thousands of knives
come into my
possession over the years and would like to tell you that your knives are among
the finest I have
seen. You are a true craftsman and a credit to the art of bladesmithing.
Todd. Andy here. I got my knife from the ups guy today. It is
a great, fantastic piece of art.
The prettiest and nicest knife I have ever seen! I am going to keep it for
my little boy. Andy
and it is beautiful. Great craftsmanship!!! Balance
is as great as the workmanship.
You do good
work and Iíll show all my buddies. Thanks
for a piece of art with anedge! Tom
Received my knife today. I have over 50 handmade knives from other folks,
but yours is by
far the best I have ever held. I don't know how you got it so sharp.
I'm going to order one each of
your Summit Series with the Madison Maple. I just thought I'd let you know
how much I like your
knives. They are a work of art. David
Todd. I wanted to drop you a quick
note letting you know that I received my Skyblade; the
Moose 5 model. It's a beautiful knife and the fit and finish is superb!
I had planned to use it as a
working knife and probably will but I can see where it could be considered as
a piece of art for
display. Keep up the great work! Steve
I told you that I would be back. It probably won't even end here. I am a sucker
for a good
quality knife and yours certainly fill the bill. Faron
Thank you for your quick response. Received knife on Wed. Its a work of art.
Just wanted to let you know how pleased my husband and I are with the knife.
It was supposed
to be a Christmas present, but after I opened it and saw how incredible it was,
I had to give it to
him right away! (I've never done that before!) Thanks for the fast
shipping as well. Joanne
IMPRESSIVE! Thanks for the fast turn and I will definitely keep you in
mind for further
work and references! Mark
thought he was going to tear up!! He loves the knife! Brought it to
work bragging. I'm so glad
cause he's a big pain in the butt, but a great friend for 20+ years!
You're an artist! Thank you so
much! Best regards. Kyle
Just need to tell you how happy I am with your knives. Thus far, I have bought
7. I come
from a hunting family and pass these out to brothers and friends.
All I hear are positive
comments about your knives. Ron
Todd, The knife arrived today and it's perfect. Thanks for being so easy
to work with. My
husband says to tell you thanks, and he really likes the knife. I'll be
sure to check back with
you the next time I need a gift, or the next time my husband is looking for
another knife to add
to his collection. He was in a pretty serious car accident today, so it
was a nice surprise for him
to get the knife today. Thanks again. You do really nice work!
Todd. Love your work. Buddy of mine in Houston turned me on to you
by showing me one of
your fillet knives. Just beautiful! Just bought my first Skyblade
today. I am sure it won't be the
last. Thanks! Wiley
are really beautiful, even better than I expected. I'm going to have
trouble parting with
them. I'm looking forward to doing much more with you in the future.
Welcome home. I received the knife on 19 Jan 05. Another outstanding job!
The knife is
absolutely gorgeous. I own 3 Chris Reeve knives. Two of them WERE my hunting
knives, but they've been replaced by your knives. I love 'em. I also
own 3 Chris Reeve knives,
2 Randalls, 2 Al Mars. They are excellent knives but they have the
"production feel" to them.
Your knives do not have that feel! I love my CRK's but they are now 2nd
string to my SKYBLADES.
I'm sure I'll be ordering another in the future. Thank you,
have the knife...GREAT!!!!!!!!!! Thanks, and get back in the shop and
CREATE!!!!!!!!! Thanks, Ron
Had to have this one - it matches the first one I purchased!! You have
fantastic knives -
thanks for sharing your talent. Roger
going to try and get every different type of knife you make (when I can afford
it). So keep
those knives coming; you make one hell of a good knife for a very reasonable
Thanks for the quick turnaround. I do appreciate it and look forward to
do terrific work. I am pleased to have one of your knives in my
collection. Thanks, Mike
of your great knives. You do great work! Tom
I just finished up deer hunting in Northern Texas and in Western Pa. I
used my Summit Hunter
that I purchased from you last year to field dress 5 whitetails. This knife performed like no
that I have owned. It holds its edge, it fits great in your hand, and it looks
like a million bucks. I had
several people want to see this knife after watching me go to work on my deer.
My biggest problem
was making sure they gave it back to me. I like to buy all kinds of new hunting
toys, and I can honestly
say that your knife has been my best purchase in years. Keep up the great work
and you can bet I will
be back for more. Tom
Todd. Just wanted to share the
thank you note below, that I received from my nephew Jon. Thanks
for making mine a special gift! Wiley
(Uncle Wylie and Aunt Lynn,
I wanted to thank you for the amazing knife that you gave me for
graduation. I have never seen anything like it. The craftsmanship is
outstanding, the edge is razor sharp,
and the design is actually very functional despite its beautiful, decorative,
appearance. It's so rare these
days for something to be beautiful, well made, and completely functional. While
I would not want to
actually dirty it up field dressing an animal, I have complete confidence that
it is well suited for it. I
believe the Pistolies are not investing in pieces made by this excellent
Thank you again. Jonathan)
- I received the Moose 5 today!!! It is absolutely beautiful and well worth the
wait. What balance!
The sheath is awesome as well. It is everything that I thought it would be.
The knife is so nice that I
have a hard time believing that this will become a working knife for me in the
field. I've waited for years
to find a knife that has this much character and beauty. Todd you are an
outstanding craftsman and
bladesmith. The other knifemakers should mirror what you produce. Thanks again,
Todd. I received my knife today (a Bison 4 RWB no 066).
It is so beautiful that i got little tears in
my eyes. I made that order because
I want something special for my 40th Birthday.
Words are missing
for describing the beauty and quality of the knife.
Today I got my Madison 5 and I've got to say that I love it. If it is
anything like the pheasant
that I bought from you then this will be a deer butchering blade. As for
the pheasant, it has just gutted,
and skinned out #3. It is still very sharp. I love this little
knife. As a matter of fact I have "retired" my
other knives as this little one is all I need. I will however use the
Madison to butcher the deer in my
basement fridge. Great product and thanks for the great deal.
a lot Todd. I have been out of town but I just got the knife. I love
it and I'm sure my father will too!
I will try to get you some more business with friends and family that I show off
the knife to.
Todd. Just to let you know, my
knife arrived last Wednesday. Fantastic, Thankyou.
Todd, I received the Caribou today. I'm very happy. I'm sure my
friend will be also. Another outstanding
knife. I'm looking forward to seeing the Centurion. It does sound like a great
Thank You, Kevin
I just saw one of your knives and pulled up your website. First of all, let
me tell you that your
knives are without a doubt the most outstanding looking knives that I've seen
from any custom knife
maker. I've literally looked for years for a knife that has the eye appeal
that yours do. The handles
float into the blade which I personally feel is important for continuity and
