As with any custom work it is impossible to have a set price. The price is determined by many factors such as dimensions, steel type, handle material, embellishments, features and sheath (kydex or leather). The first thing to do is to identify why do you need a knife and how are you planning to use it. Once this is done, we can work together to figure out the design, materials and features.
I have worked with several steel types such as 1095, 01, 52100, D2, CPM3V, S30V, S35V and Damascus. My preferred steels today are CPM3V and S35V. In my experience these two steels have proven themselves to be two of the overall best performing steels.
Handle Material Options
I have access to all kinds of handle materials, from exotic burls to micarta, from antler to G10. It is important to make sure the handle material matches the intended use of the knife. Burls will not stand very heavy use like a synthetic material such as Micarta.
I am able to offer leather or kydex sheaths. Each type will have different carry options availiable. The carry options are side and scout. I can also add a dangler system or a baldric carry system.
I am able to enhance your knife with extra special embellishments and features. Filework, custom etching, custom pins and lynard cord with beads (depending on availability).
NK - Alpha
I designed the Alpha about two years ago and it is my first production knife. The Alpha basic model comes with a 5 1/2" cutting edge, micarta handles and kydex sheath.
The Aeglaeca is my second production knife. The word Aeglaeca means "monster, demon, fierce enemy, fierce combatant" depending on the context. The basic model comes with a 7" cutting edge, micarta handles and kydex sheath.

This is my production skinner. It has been tested by a couple of seasoned hunters and after a few design changes this is the results. The basic model comes with a 4" cutting edge, micarta handles and kydex sheath.

The Venom is one of my older designs. It is a mixture of a fighter and bowie. The basic model comes with a 5 1/2 cutting edge, micarta handles and kydex sheath.
