Doh, an antler JKM and me strapped for cash:( Someone grab that bilton. The good sgt does an excellent job! All of them are beautiful. If i had the money i'd get that JKM and the villager chiruwa AK.

Thank you KM. I was starting to do the math in my head to figure how much plasma sells for these days;) Excellent knife.

Email on Bilton...needed to replace the last one I gave away.
I'd LOVE to have that first model in a 16 or 17" model! That is beautiful!!! Perfect blade shape and handle!
I'd love to have that first model as is, but first, I would need the $150!

Sgt Karka is putting out some beautiful work. Love those handles, blade shapes, and non habaki bolsters!

Hope we see some more into the new year.

I got email...Bilton to Ohio. :)

Lucky dog. :D Those Karka biltons look like they're something else. I will get one. (And probably wind up giving it away, so maybe I'd better get a few... :))
They are perfect for that...just can't hang onto one for myself.

They are nice. Especially the Kothimoda style sheaths. The metalwork is fantastic.
