    You're killin me with that OS Karda! I've over spent on knives in the last month or it would be mine. If it sits too long I may have to buy it anyway but I'm sure someone will snatch that right up. Good luck with the sale.

    The nicest one I've seen and its tapered tang. I just got it from Sarah, but it will not get used since I already have a user bearcub. Good deal on an ironwood TT FB

    Thanks!!! I've been wanting a Bearcub for a while, and this one was just too nice to pass up :)

    yes, I just wasn't using it and needed to pay for a few customs from Allen and Russell Reece that I just purchased.

    I can't believe no one has jumped on my super sweet Lonestar and thin Patch I have listed for a song. The 3/32" Patch just disappears in your hand and would be ideal for this time of your for hunting/skinning game.

    Yup, I know the feeling: something's gotta give. I have a few more on the bubble myself, for similar reasons.

    This Bear Cub deserves a Forever Home, hopefully with some hard use-- one of the best tips/grinds I've seen yet, supporting which the contoured handle lends a superb, confident grip. :thumbsup:

    I have a blackwood bearcub that Andy made me a while back in 3/32" that I already use. However this ironwood one had the handle come up further on the blade than mine which I really liked, and the wood grain was the second nicest I've seen in ironwood.

    BTW, I would consider a trade on my Patch or Lonestar for a Surls Bobcat in wood. Maybe both for a larger Surls.

    outstanding group this week. I predict a sellout, and Kyles knife is badass. I got to hold the blank when I was out there last week.

    @Kirkwood Everyone knows I love a nice Bushboot but there's also a lot to like about that Surl's Patch, Ironwood + 3/32" + cpm154 = :)

    That Runt is the bomb. For real, can't believe I'm offering it so low. But it has three siblings here that get all the attention. Just wanted to give the little fella a shot at a good home.

    Can't believe that bocote bushcrafter hasn't sold. That's one of the best all around wood for knife handles

    It’s got beautiful grain, great spalting, and it’s ⅛” stock, perfection! I’d love to have that one rather then my Ruby red shadetree Bushcrafter!
