    If you have any questions about what's listed, just let me know and I'll do my best to help you out. For more details, specs, or pictures, ask and ye shall receive. You can reach me through private message or through my email: kenleung1995 at hotmail dot com. I also check my threads fairly often so I'll see your posts. I can work with you on the price for some of these and I'm open to trades. Prices include all shipping and PayPal fees in the US. I'll be happy to ship international but the buyer will need to assume all risks and help cover the cost of shipping. Thanks for your time.

    For trades, I'm looking for a: Spyderco Kapara, Spyderco Smock, Striders, Microtechs, Protechs, Olamics, Chris Reeves, Hinderers, Ferrum Forges, Ziebas, Curtiss Knives, Sharp By Designs, Spartan Pallas tanto, BM 737 Aileron, BM 365 Outlast, ZT 0454, Tashi Rowdy HiTech, Isham designs, G&G Hawk Orbit, some balisongs, and a Graham Razel but I'll be happy to hear other offers. Worst I can do is pass and cash can be added either way.

    1. Spartan Blades Harsey Folder - very good condition - $400 --> Sold
    3.9" DLC coated CPM-S35VN blade
    DLC coated frame
    Clean satin on the screws, thumbstuds, and standoffs
    Clip and front filler tab are stonewashed
    This one has been carried and used
    There's some light wear, mostly just on the DLC
    The edge could use a touchup, there is a dull spot by the point and few smaller ones on the belly
    Centering is perfect
    Smooth action and perfect lockup
    Fits my hand perfectly in a number of grips

    3. Strider NSN SMF - very good condition - $700
    National Stock Number version that’s supplied to the US military
    I was told by the last guy that this one has seen combat but I have no way to confirm that
    Lego SMF with a full flat ground CPM-S30V blade
    Black G-10 front
    Blasted blade and lockside
    There are a number of snail trails on it but it’s overall in pretty good shape
    It has the old style lockup so there’s some slight play but the knife is 100% safe
    Smooth action and perfect centering

    This is a weird one even by Spyderco standards but fits perfectly in hand
    Satin VG-10 blade with a textured black G-10 handle
    Never carried or used

    6. Mcusta Tsuchi - near mint - $125
    I bought this one new a while back from Blade HQ so I’m the first owner
    Exact specs are here: https://www.bladehq.com/item--Mcusta-Tsuchi-MC-114BD-Knife-Black--23651
    San mai damascus blade with hammered flats
    Hammered and coated handle with polished sides
    Blue anodized pivot and thumbstuds
    There are scratches in the coating by the lanyard hole but I’m not seeing any other wear
    Still has the original hair-splitting sharp factory edge
    Lockup is solid as long as lockup is pushed slightly over, like you would in a normal grip
    Smooth action and perfect centering

    Is the G10 on the SMF damaged? Also rust on the blade? Hard to tell for sure from the pics

    The G-10 has some scuffs but nothing serious. Still feels the same and no smooth spots on the textured side.

    I'm honestly not sure about the blade. Never tried cleaning it. It could just be dirt but if it is rust, it's very minor.

    The Harsey has been sold.

    Roger that, do you have a better close up picture of the G10 scale and blade?

    Thanks!

    Here you go. I managed to get more of that blade wear on camera and zoomed in on the G-10.
