    I'm trying to switch up the collection so here are some knives I'm putting up for trade. I'll be here to answer any questions you might have. If you need more details/specs/pictures, just shoot me a message and I'll have them sent over. If you're interested, feel free to start a conversation or email me at kenleung1995 at hotmail dot com. I try to check my threads fairly often so chances are I'll see your posts as well. If you just want a straightforward sale, let me know and we can have something worked out. Thanks for taking a look.

    For trades, I'm looking for: Jon Grahams, Ochs Worx, Yunas, Marlowes, Direwares, GTCs, TuffKnives, Sharknivcos, RJ Martins, Rocksteads, Dalibors, Broadwells, Black Snow Customs, Phantom Steelworks, Jim Burkes, Blackwoods, VanderMeulens, Chris Goodwyns, Rogovets, Jason Clarks, Grimsmos, Brown Knives, Jason Guthries, ZT 0454, CKF Terra, and maybe a custom Emerson or just Striders in general but if you have other offers, I'm happy to hear them. Cash can be added either way.

    1. Busse Natural Outlaw Ergo
    0.25" stock INFI
    11.75" overall with 6.25" of blade
    This one has some polishing marks but it's been been buffed to an almost perfect mirror finish
    Hasn't been resharpened yet after the refinishing
    Comes with nice custom thick wood scales
    Original scales are included
    Also comes with a fitted leather sheath that works with the wood scales

    2. Chuck Gedraitis Model 1 - lightly carried
    If Chris Reeve made a medium Sebenza, it would feel something like this
    3.25" damasteel blade with a damasteel thumbdisc
    Stonewashed frame with a matching milled clip
    Has a single green anodized standoff in the back
    Smooth action and well centered
    Has a slight bit of play but any pressure on the lockbar makes it completely go away
    Lockup is rock solid in hand

    3. Jim Burke Runt Auto - near mint
    One of the best designed small knives I've had
    There were very few automatic Runts made and this is one of them
    Only has 2.25" of cutting edge but feels like a much more substantial knife with the way it likes to be held in hand
    Stonewashed blade with a satin main grind
    The anodizing work is top notch, frame is tumbled blurple with a dot pattern that runs the spectrum
    Blue backspacer with satin highs
    Fits very well in hand
    Opens 100% reliably
    Locks up securely if you make sure the button-lock fully engages
    Centering is dead on
