    Hey guys. I've got several knives available in CPM S35VN today as well as some made with good ole 3D Spalted 01!!! I still don't have sheaths, so the prices of these knives are listed without one. They can be bought directly from either Heber or RLo.

    First up is a Ladyfinger with stabalized dyed curly Maple scales and a nice high convex sabergrind on 5/32" thick 3D Spalted 01. $255 shipped

    Next up are two CPM S35VN Recluses! One is wearing stabalized dyed curly Maple, and the other is wearing African Blackwood. $315 shipped for either knife.

    Also in CPM S35VN are these two sweeties! Actually, the disposition on these little Bushboots is NOT sweet! One is wearing black linen micarta with no liners, and the other is black canvas over black g-10 with a white pinstripe. They both feature 5 black pins and a mosaic pin also. Both are swedged! Nasty little boogers! $270 shipped for either. I have both Heber ($40) sheaths with the square bottom, or Rlo sheaths for these ($50).

    Two 01 Bushcrafters available today. One is convex saberground with antique canvas micarta scales ($250 shipped). The other is Scandi on 1/8" thick 3D Spalted 01 and has a pretty Tuxedo configuration handle. ($225 shipped)

    Gadzooks Andy, what a batch! :eek: The wooden handled knives are stunning. The black pins against the curly Maple and tan pins against the African Blackwood really set them alive. I am very happy to see some stainless in there as well. My...my. :p

    Congratulations to all the folks who got in on these knives so far. You fellows have really purchased some quality stuff, but then you already knew that.

    Great batch. It is a real pleasure to see.

    First you forget it was Fiddleback Friday and realize the post went up hours ago and you missed it

    Then you see there have been multiple posts and you start to sweat thinking about what you may have missed

    You cuss your computer for being so slow and then do a quick look through and pick your favorite

    Then you scan the posts to see if anyone claimed it

    Then you take a few breaths and realize that either someone already got it or that you do not see anything you would have to sell the dog for.

    Then you pat yourself on the back for showing restraint with money you really do not have but deep down you know next week may be different.

    Then you can't wait until next Friday and do it again.

    Next Friday you spend the money you were proud about not spending last week

    You end up selling the knife so you can buy another one

    A vicious cycle really :)



    That African blackwood recluse is a real beaut. Might take two dogs or 315 cats but someone should jump on that one.

    Also love how the spalting came out on that scandi bushcrafter. Pretty work!

    Man! Thanks MD. You got it.


    You got it Joe. Thanks! There isn't a sheath for it yet though. You want me to send it to Rlo for a pattern? Heber owns a KPH and can make a pattern without sending it.

    Thanks Mark!

    What a post! Thanks G.

    Thanks JD. That knife is a quiet stunner!

    Ah Andy as the 'Rare One' is in your signature Orange liner under natural canvas I would very much like to take it?

    I too am no fighter but can see this being used for less hostile take overs and tooling, drooling and just plain fondling for its beauty...
    Let me know the extra to get this down under and what the sheath options are out there?

    Cheers
    Damon

    I'm finishing a batch of 4" Bushcrafter sheaths right now that Andy will have sometime next week. I was supposed to mail them out Monday on my way to Scout camp but that didn't happen. I'm sorry Andy didn't have them on time. If you want a sheath, You could have Andy send your knife when the batch of sheaths that I'm sending him arrives. Or you can order one straight from me for $47 delivered.
