    This post basically sums up all my "lessons learned" from my first 3 months of trial and error on this forum. Great job!

    My Freudian slip is showing? That's just hoardable.

    Good comeback, Lorien, lol.

    Three other options other than finding one in the wild and paying about 2 x as much as they originally sold for:

    - travel back in time to the the simpler times

    - becoming blood brothers with the # 1 FK hoarder in the Universe: Justin

    - waiting for the FK 2.0

    ;)

    Well, yall must have deep pockets to be able to spend that kind of money on knives just to look at them! I'm a user all the way and if I don't use it, then it's on the chopping block!

    I'm going to take some contrast pictures for you later, to show you the nature of micarta....and how it responds to cleaning! Stay tuned, you're going to see a drastic difference in looks!

    Excellent. Even if it lightens, it'll show what can be done, with the right oil or whatever, to effect color change
