    Thanks yeah I wasn’t swallowed whole by hurricane Harvey... lol ever since I was told I couldn’t bring fixed blades to work (which is where I’m at a majority of my time) I just haven’t been that active with knives... I don’t get how it’s different than carrying my sebenza or my SAK’s but hey I don’t make the rules

    @pertinux, just so we're clear... would you be interested in a blue Bow Legged Joe that photographs purple or do you only want one that looks blue all the time? :D

    1) I WANT IT ALL, natch.

    2) I have somewhat 'solved' the blue thing, which won't be nearly as much fun for the rest of you. As discovered in @whitty's back room in NC, which isn't nearly as weird as it sounds written out, my 'falcen photographed blue (ie, THE WAY IT ACTUALLY LOOKS) under... fluorescent lighting, no heroic editing efforts embraced:

    So, I did try this at home:

    (bonus credit for messy Thanksgiving stove top)

    In the basement, natural light crept in and evoked increasing Purple:

    Fortunately, my Crew intervened:

    ... and back to the kitchen:

    Weird, innit?

    Back to #1 above, and your question: I would prefer a knife that looks BLUE for show 'n tell pictures, duh, but will happily consider any Bow Legged Joe that comes close to what I want in my actual real life. o_O

    I know! And thank you! I've been admiring that one for a long time. I certainly have a weakness for fine Bushboots. This one's going to a good home.

    I really hate to see it go but I'm glad it's going to someone that appreciates them as much as I do. ;)

    Nathan's Ladyfinger is badass. He's almost giving it away at that price for a bolstered fb.
