Yeah cosmetically it isn't perfect anymore. I almost wanted to force a patina but I would rather it ern its patina. I used this on a week long backpack/hike and didn't immedialty clean her till I had returned. Here's pics as it sits tonight. Also the scabbard is a little loose and is developing a split on the seem which if it gets worse will be a finger guillotine for a khurk rookie. All that being said I don't even know where to price her.
well I think thats a carved chandan set, which you cant get even if you want now-- as chandan trade is banned due to near extinction. even with use and patina I would put that YCS at a strong 225. but remember , if you actually want to trade it just contact people privately, dont advertise in HI forums, as that distracts from people buying HI blades-- if you want to sell on blade forums do it in the production fixed blades for sale, but I would put it at a good 225 -250.-- but I may just see chandan everywhere yours could also just be nice red satisal-- either way its a good YCS and price will be 200+, but you could sell it easier and faster with a lower price as with anything.
