    Avoid ebay seller greatknivesgreatprices133

    Avoid ebay seller greatknivesgreatprices133

    Same here for the transaction, pity for the insults Mr Andrew Kuntz deserved. For the rest, you are indeed right, this is the lesser of my minor problems, just before this broken nail I had last week, but it is not a reason to indulge people like Mr Kuntz, so passing the word is good. ;)...

    Roselli knives

    Thanks Condition Black, about the Leuko, I meant about how to do find using it ? (must be my traduction skills, again :) ) Being a Euro, I get European productions by more direct means ;) About carbon, it is just that I found I do not have the will to worry about anything in life :)...

    Roselli knives

    Hi, Rust or discoloration will eventually show. The Roselli are carbon blades, so they will eventually rust or discolor. I own a Carpenter UHC, and it is an excellent blade, with a very high cutting power. To improve it, I brought the bevel to a true nordic edge (only one bevel), it is now...

    Need Machete / Sword Suggestions

    Cliff: Right! different people, different expectation, different results, I only have a few more doubts about coming with one unique final solution, there are many good options, with pro and cons. My original comment was targeted at a remark that has more to do with cult and religion, than...

    Goloks from Valiant

    Yep, the Hambalan, I longly hesitated to get, seems a good blade. The Duren is a Durian (the fruit) cutting blade, I use it in the kitchen, as a light cleaver. The cepot is a nice little thing, mine has a very thick blade. I'd say that the duren and cepot are very similar blades, and between...

    Need Machete / Sword Suggestions

    Hibuke: Mmmmm, the question is to which other gear did you compare it? I personally find the forward curve on khukuri quite a problem. There are lots of other blades that are excellent contenders, from thick machetes, to other khukuris, through goloks and parangs and short swords. So...

    Goloks from Valiant

    Well said Patrick, Wandi is a top person, and sells top products. His production has been really well designed (he changed the sizes of traditional blades to fit better us ,westerners), he deserves all our support and patience. I whish he will overcome these problems.

    Valiant Co. Problem.

    Ouf , I still prefer it to be about computer health than personal health. Agreed about the firewalls and virus software, even the mails need filtering nowadays... Thanks for the info.
