    We need to send this one off with a top bid (no disrespect intended Gabe). This knife is SO special that it is beyond value or price. Designed, profiled and ground by Rob makes it pretty special to start with. Finished with special care and love by Trace to faithfully hold to the original look Rob would have created himself, then marked with both Rob's custom mark and the Four Star Big Bear mark, side by side, makes this knife a truly fitting tribute to a great man and wonderful friend to so many of us.

    Yeh, congratulations..... although I usually view losing an auction as a bad thing, the best thing for this cause is obviously to raise as much money as possible.

    Happy New Years!
