    Available for sale or trade!

    I am interested in hearing trade proposals for knives by: Busse/kin, Gossman, Carothers, Carter, Fiddleback, Osprey, Cohutta. These are the only makers I am interested in right now.

    W.A. Surls Arapaima w/evergreen burlap micarta over black liners with white pinstripes. 5/32" spalted A2 steel with SFT (skeletonized full tang). Still as new as the day I got it. This is an extremely rare knife by Allen. It's something like a larger version of the Arowana, at 14" OAL and with a 9" blade, and ends up as a sort of parang/cleaver-type knife at this size. Looking to get back close to the amount I put into it.

    $405 TYD ***TRADED***

    -W.A. Surls? (make me an offer).

    -Osprey Knife & Tool: EDU, Mini Mamushi, Warthog, Mamushi etc..

    -Fiddleback Forge: Bushcraft Karda, (Old School Karda or an EDK would be ok, but gunning for a Bushcraft Karda first and foremost). Any handle material. 3/32" SFT, or 1/8" Tapered Tang. Any steel type. A sheath would be nice.

    Fiddleback Forge Monarch***$250.00***. 1/8th" Spalted 01 Tool Steel. Tapered Tang with Swedge. Black Micarta with black and white liners (Tuxedo style). Comes with a black custom RLO belt sheath. $280 ***PRICE DROP... $250.00*** or Trade.

    This knife is in near perfect condition and a beautiful example of a Fiddleback Forge Monarch which has been noted as a personal grail knife by the maker Andy Roy. It is Andy's interpretation of the classic Loveless NY Special design. I bought this from the original owner who only used it once to dress a deer. Otherwise it is in very good condition and has not been sharpened. I have not used it since I received it in the mail. There are a few very faint light scratch lines on the blade that are hard for me to pick up with my naked eye let alone photograph, but I tried my best with the photos in the link below. Fits my hand like a glove, and the tuxedo look is very slick.
    More photos: https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/fiddleback-forge-monarch-withdrawn.1591443/

    Next up is a Fiddleback Forge Esquire... TRADED!

    Shipping will be sent via insured USPS Priority mail to the CONUS only, and is included in the price. Paypal add 3.5% or F&F. I prefer USPS Money Orders.

    Monarch: $250.00

    Esquire: TRADED

    It REALLY pains me to lower the cost of brand new condition knives to this level. The remaining knives are in exceptional shape and ready for a new home. I just want these to go to someone who can use them or add to their collection. I'm taking such a hit on these that it makes my stomach hurt! :( If you are interested in getting a new knife for far less than new price, you should jump on this. All I would ask is you either pay with friends and family or add 3% for the pay pal fee. I'll still include priority shipping ConUS as part of the price. Please see the links below (you will be directed to the new pricing listed on the Fiddleback Forge Forum).
