    I haven't been following this thread closely; but that is one of maybe three knives so far that I would have been happy to see. (That's why I don't touch the grab bags - too much risk between the random models and random handles.) Nice score!!

    Aye. Could be Bloodwood. Hadn’t considered that. Perhaps one of the Mothership Crew will weigh in on this matter.

    A Infi Ratweiler, with the wonderful bruiser G10 and the beautiful hammered silver finish. And what I believe to be a Custom Shop Forsaken Mistress, though I'm not sure what to call the scales or the finish...if anyone out there knows, I'd be much obliged if you could tell me.

    I'm hoping some of these scales make it on the upcoming F16.

    That is crazy, how many grab bags was that?

    That hammered finish is pretty to look at but hell to maintain. It sucks up moisture like a big silica sponge. Id love to help you out but at most I could take one off your hands, maybe that BT6?

    For sure. I have it on one of my Japanese Santoku knives and I make sure to clean it and wipe it down immediately after I finish cutting food.

    My Busse Buddy said I should have posted a photo of my last GB - along with this one. And claim it’s one $500 Bag! I like a practical joke as much as the next fella. But don’t want to be responsible for any heart attacks out in Busseland.

    I believe you are both correct, 100%. I actually had a great knife with bloodwood, it does really look like it now that I've looked at a proper PC monitor to view the pic.

    Looks like dyed/stabilized Maple, possibly from the tree Jerry cut down when he was a kid. The laminate looks like a Linen or burlap Micarta layered with black G-10. That piece has a number of rarely seen elements in it, nice score :thumbsup:

    My buddy's 1500 haul from last week. All 3 nuked treatment, the urgent fury has black g10/wood g-rexed handles.

    Nice redsfairlane. Thanks for the images. Thread still going. As long as we have enticing photos to post. Viewing these makes me wish I’d have purchased 10 $1,000 GB’s.
