    Well, my kids started back to school this week. I think its crazy to start this early, but I'm not the man in charge.

    As promised this week, I have a rather large batch of knives for the forumites! Lets get right to it!

    First up I have a couple of black on black knives that are pretty nice and unique. Both are 1/8" thick 3D Spalted 01 steel. First up is a shank with really long pretty swedges and a blingey little mosaic pin. $205 shipped. I have no sheath for this one. Also up is a Hunter! I never grind Hunters from stock this thin because it is too easy to mess up the grind on the last belt. Which is exactly what happened to the other one. I was 1 for two on 1/8" thick Hunters this week. This is a rare knife. ($275 shipped US. I have no sheath for this one.)

    I also have two knives with white linen over natural canvas with orange pinstripe. One is a pretty convex Hiking Buddy on 1/8" thick 01 ($215 shipped without sheath. I have sheaths available for HB's. $40 for a Heber, or $50 for an RLo. The other knife is a Bushfinger with scandi and sick 3D Spalted steel (1/8" thick). $240 shipped without a sheath, or $280 shipped with a Heber sheath.

    I have two pretty 5/32" thick 3D Spalted and convexed Ladyfingers available today. One is wearing stabalized dyed curly Maple with a black liner and blue pinstripe, and the other is Black on Black Burlap with orange highlight. Either knife is $255 shipped without sheath, or $295 shipped with a Heber sheath.

    And finally, something more to Mr. Mann's taste. Two pretty Bushfingers. One is Tuxedo, the other maroon linen over nat can. Both have 1/4" pins and a 1/8" mosaic pin. $230 shipped for the tuxedo handle, or $255 for the Maroon Linen one. I have Heber sheaths for $40, or Rlo sheaths for $50 for these as well.

    I'll take the "The other knife is a Bushfinger with scandi and sick 3D Spalted steel (1/8" thick). $240 shipped without a sheath," - Thx.

    "...white linen over natural canvas with orange pinstripe."

    Hm...isn't the scandi white handled knife a Bushcrafter? I'll still take it. Call me confused.

    edit: I'm so glad this is a Back to School batch. I'm going to see if I can get the parents to pay for this school supply ;)

    edit: Payment sent, thx!

    I'll take the maroon linen Bushfinger! Knife only please, no sheath, for 255.00, thanks.
    PS Just checking, is this Bushfinger the usual 5/32 stock, (I hope so, I'm not looking for a 1/8 stock one)?

    WOW...beautiful batch Andy! It is kind of neat how you used the 1/4" pins and 1/8" mosaic pins on those Bushfingers.

    Congratulations to those who have grabbed some of these knives already!

    Just to let y'all know what is left. I still have a Bushfinger wearing antique natural can over nat can from the one knife batch. I have a similar Bushcrafter with antique canvas over black from this batch. The shank, both Ladyfingers, and a thin Hunter are also available all from this batch.
