    Gentlemen:

    For your consideration is my full-tang,subhilt Battle Bowie in Sambar Stag and W-2. The blade was full flat ground to .035" with 25 degree secondary bevels for a hair popping edge. Hand rubbed to 2000 grit and lightly etched to reveal a vivid hamon with some nice character and ghosting. There's just a bit of a recurve to this one for sleeknees and I'm real happy with how this one turned out. I haven't made the sheath yet so you may specify right or left. I hope you like it! I am particularly fond of this design because without having to get up, I can jab my mother-in-law as she walks past my easy chair. :D The first "I'll take it" gets it. $600 delivered Paypal preferred to [email protected] or USPS money orders please. Maker's lifetime common sense warranty and free sharpening. Thanks for looking!

    Everytime time I see a new thread from you I can't wait to open it! You along with other makers are really setting the standard. You are offering some Superb knives to us fortunate members at prices that make them obtainable. Just awesome! :thumbup:

    You can't fool me. YOu are getting rich on the sweat of the working class. You have outsourced your mfg work to China and lost 100 American jobs. And taken $$mil in tax breaks too!
    You have politicized the BladeForum and taken civility out of our usual discourse.:grumpy::grumpy::grumpy:--:D

    Ben: It's about time you got sarcastic - I enjoy these much more than your nice posts. BTW: I found that hunk of Ebony for your Dropped Hunter order and will ship it to China to get your knife made - should take about nine months. :eek: :D
