I'd planned to use my Dark Stars for D for some time and was googling the model a bit for info yesterday when I ran into a thread with yours somewhere. I thought "maybe CV will beat me to the punch" and indeed you have. When I was searching for these some years back it was hard to find any with plain blades as is often the case with some older, rarer BMK models. The full-size one was not in great shape when I got it with a godawful sharpening job, blade scratches, dirty, and a little bit of lock slip--not enough to come close to disengagement but enough to make me wrinkle my nose at. The mini came LNIB and is a great example of the model. They're hard pieces to photograph, especially as a pair, with their reflective dagger style blades, and I couldn't really capture the richness of their gold ano'd liners. Not the most useful knives either, these, but pretty cool nonetheless.
