    Hi everyone. I'm on the hunt for some new steel so here are some knives up for trade. I'll be here to answer any questions you might have about what you see. I can give more details, specs, and pictures if you ask. If you're interested, feel free to start a conversation or email me at kenleung1995 at hotmail dot com. I also check my threads fairly often so I'll see your posts. If you just want a straightforward sale, let me know and we can have something worked out. Thanks for taking a looking.

    For trades, I'm looking for: Yunas, DireWares, GTC's, Southards, TuffKnives, Sharknivcos, Rocksteads, Phantom Steelworks, Kirby Lamberts, Lightfoots, Dwaine Carrillos, Jason Clarks, Hobacks, a Todd Begg Beggatti, Rassentis, a Demko AD15, Skike Rogue Shark, Dervishs, Jon Grahams, Warren Thomas, Grimsmos, non-locking MSC PT, Marfione MSG-3, DOC, Busse Hognose War Sword, ZT 0454, and maybe a custom Emerson or Strider but if you have other offers, I'm happy to hear them. Cash can be added either way.

    1. GTC Plasma F/C - like new - Traded
    Blade is a harpoon tanto with satin flats and stonewashed grinds
    The frame is satin finished on the highs and acidwashed on the parts that have been milled out
    The clip is mounted flush to the frame
    There are 4 seamless inlays of presentation grade black lip mother of pearl
    I haven't carried or used it but there are some faint handling marks on a few parts of the handle
    Fit and finish is perfect
    Centering is dead on, locks up tight with no play, and it's light for its size
    The blade flips out fast and with authority
    Comes with a GTC pouch and paperwork

    2. Allen Elishewitz Saboteur - near mint
    Two-tone satin blade
    Mokume bolsters
    Perfectly done polished lightning strike carbon fiber scales; it's 100% smooth and I can't feel any of the wires at all
    Orange-peeled liners
    There are some light scuffs on the finish of the blasted clip
    Glass smooth action, perfect centering, and lockup is about as solid as it gets
    Feels great in hand

    3. Shirogorov 110 - brand new - Traded
    The best axis lock folder I've handled
    Stonewashed M390 blade with an orange-peeled fuller on either side
    Contoured and lightly textured carbon fiber scales
    Action is as smooth as you'd expect from a Shiro
    Centering is dead on
    Lockup is rock solid with no play in any direction

    4. A2 Andre Thorburn/Andre Van Heerden A3-3D - near mint
    Runs glass smooth on a multi-row IKBS system with 90 bearing
    Has Thorburn's signature action, fires open instantly and with a nice snap
    Drop point blade with a hand rubbed satin
    Black G-10 scales with seamless green G-10 inlays
    Light blue anodized liners
    Has been lightly carried but the only real wear is a small chip in the G-10 under the pivot on the clip side
    Perfectly centered and locks up with no play at all

    5. DireWare M8 - like new - Traded
    Spearpoint blade in M390
    2-tone blade with satin grinds and coated flats to give it a tuxedo look
    Satin frame with stonewashed edges and 3 inlays of polished carbon fiber
    Orange-peeled clip
    Has some faint handling marks on the front by the pivot that the knife came with
    Great attention to detail on this one: swedge is brought to a higher level of satin, the inlays follow the lines of the jimping, the end of the flipper has a rough satin for grip
    Perfect centering and locks up with no play
    Fires out of the handle when it breaks detent and drops free
    Comes with everything

    6. Jake Hoback Kwaiback - near mint - Sold
    CPM-20CV blade
    Bronzed ti frame with pale gold PVD coated pivot, clip, spacer, and hardware
    Inside of the handle slabs have been heavily milled out and there are 3 lines milled on the outside so it lighter and more comfortable than you'd expect
    Has been lightly carried so there are some faint scratches and the edge could use a small touchup
    Lock up is about as solid as it gets and the action can be fine tuned to exactly how you like it by adjusting the rolling detent
    Centering favors the presentation side by a hair in the photo but I've since fixed it, It now sits dead center

    Sorry about that. I've cleared some space. I'll pass on the FF but thanks for the offer.

    The Direware and Shiro have been traded. The Hoback has been sold.
