Cetan (this month's prize..)


Oct 12, 1998
I recieved my Cetan from Rob Simonich last week, it looks just like the won on the Splash Page of BF.com...

Believe me, if you win it, you will be very happy. I know I am.
The knife is light and the handle feels great. I wore it all day for four days while walking about 200 miles around the SHOT show and Ihardly notcied that it was there.

If the knife doesn;t come with the upgradeed sheath, send Rob $20 for the upgrade, the sheath I got is very good and comfortable.

The blade is scary sharp and I'm sure I'll be happy with it in the long run as well as being a proud new owner.

The one on the cover is indeed sweeeeet, as is the one that you showed me, Rob. BTW, tell your wife I'm sorry I mispelled her name I kant spel that gud these dasy.

Nevertheless, it was nice meeting you both at SHOT, and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Insert witty quip here

I've got one on order, when it is ready I'll post a review. Mine is to be the hawkbill Cetan in D2, should be one heck of a cutter.
