    Looks like a Lil Smokey to me. Nice looking knife.

    Yeah it has a swedge, which is pretty cool.

    Sweet thanks for letting me know.

    The War Train Fusion is a serious chunk of steel....

    I'm fortunate enough to have a local knife store owned by passionate people that accept trades. I was able to swap my bag the same day I opened it, and picked up a Busse that I actually wanted with a sheath:
    https://bladeforums.com/threads/end...ag-image-thread.1517197/page-33#post-17465561
    They were asking more than $500 but less than $860 so we both came out ahead.
    If I didn't have them, I honestly would have just kept the bag rather than go through with selling them on the exchange.
    I don't really have a good reason, but I hate selling stuff online. Email exchanges, public forums, eBay... I'm just not into being the seller. It seems like when I am, I wind up setting the price point super low just to get it over with. That way I don't have to check the post or deal with tire kickers and then pack, ship and track the item. There's lots of hidden costs, (like my time which is the most important :p) and the whole ordeal always stresses me out. I much prefer being the buyer and simply dealing with anticipation.
    If I were in phixt's shoes, the disapointing irony would have me really frustrated as well. I would be perfectly happy with anything other than that model in his situation. It isn't about rationalizing disappointment, it's about the cruel irony.
    Just thought I'd share an alternate perspective. I can relate to both sides.

    I doubt it was planned, but I would love to think it was.

    If I knew I'd get a score like that (less the TG of course) I'd have done it in the blink of an eye but in a game of chance even here, worst case scenario, easily recoup the cost and smile cause I had fun- I've just never seen this and how it worked out before so I understand what's up the next time. I only wish OP2W wasn't going on so I could take advantage of some of the great deals out there.
