    Thanks Schmittie! Ask away if you have any questions.


    Thanks Blue! Maybe just a bit too OCD there ;) but hopefully it helps.

    @Warrior108 Your pic idea also gives a great size reference as well. I am surprised by how small the bushboot is.

    The Bushboot isn't that small, I don't think. There's a Babyboot in the mix too. Keep in mind I wear 2XL or preferably 3XL gloves and kinda have the nickname "gorilla hands" in the pool league. hahaha

    Nice, cues are my other weakness. Predator P3's and P2's ..



    So yeah, Babyboot. Sorry Andy @Fiddleback and @Lady1911 but I really don't meannnnnn to pick on the Babyboot but when I hold it in my hand, the Dane Cook "Clue Knife" comes to mind. hahahaha

    edit: Oh yeah, probably because of her crazy outtakes but that "stabbing action with a tiny knife" reminds me of @Outpost Allison ;)

    I pulled out the section for ya'll and tell me that doesn't fit the Babyboot :D:D:D

    No sir, it appears to be a dark maroon g10 or similar (linen micarta?). Here is a closeup of the handle next to my other one (that i bought from you iirc).

    I have a vintage Diomedes neck sheath used for one of my runts but will include it if it makes a difference to the buyer. It’s a collectors item in and of itself!

    One of those is clearly not 3/32....
    @Hunam You are correct that not all three knives are the same precise thickness. I listed the knives per the makers specifications. I see some folks list a micrometer measurement, while this leaves folks running for a conversion chart... maybe I should list the micrometer measurement in parentheses. This gives us knuckle draggers a rough thickness and discerning folks a more accurate measurement.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Probably because they bought more than one Fiddleback and realized, ooops, maybe I should sell one or two. :D Which is a good variety to choose from.
