I think if you get in touch with Rick at Little Shavers Wood Carving Supply
he carrys Lyon knives and quite an assortment of other knives.
I have Lyon knives which I like very much. But a a power carver
I don't them very much only for clean up work.

I got my Lyons mini detail knife from Smoky Mountain Woodcarvers. I went there to try out a Denny and Ron Wells and walked out with a Lyons. They were all great knives but, I loved the balance of the handle and blade. The handle is an exotic hardwood that gives the knife a great balance. I tried every knife in the store. This knife was my first REAL carving knife. Fit and finish is impeccable. My knife stays sharp for a long time. I am saving up for the bigger detail knife now. I think you will love it. Thanks to Smoky Mtn for allowing me to try them out first.
