    It a beautiful blade, however I'm betting whoever buys it will remain anonymous... I certainly wouldn't want to have to answer the "so, how does the handle fit ya?", "using a tight or loose grip on that baby?", "how's it long walks" type questions. Sorry, someone had to say it...

    My gut tells me that would feel pretty decent in hand. As usual I'd love to hold that thing for a couple minutes. I bet it would be love or dislike the minute it hit your hand.
    Interesting though. If I had the loot I'd sure risk it. Horn can be adjusted if it came to that.

    I think that Jaxdave has something entirely different in mind. However, since this is a forum for the entire family, I will say no more.

    Pirates Cove? You guys are speaking in tongues. I gotta find somebody with a dirty mind around here and try to figure this out. Maybe I've had a sheltered life, don't get out much.

    Oh sorry to hear you missed it.

    For what it worth, I give you credit for shutting up us jokers by advertizing publicly your intent to get this original piece. :thumbup:

    Jokers? I think that's one of the nicest things anyone has ever called me. I'm almost tearing up.

    Tartan I misread your post, I thought you were sad you sharked it, didn't read it that you were robbed. I'm sorry and want you to know that I had nothing to do with that dastardly act. Maybe it was Steely Gunz? Naw he wouldn't do a thing like that. Has to be somebody real low down and barefooted, naw Ndogs already in enough trouble with the missus for his recent acquisitions.
