    Custom knife sale - recurve hunter

    Iím selling stuff off to buy a new forge, most is stuff I never got around to selling, itís my early work and whilst as tuff as old boots and will be able to be handed down to your kids, itís not as refined as some of my new stuff, so feel free to grab yourself a bargain!

    This model is made from 4mm O1 tool steel, professionally heat treated and double tempered to Rockwell 59, it has black and green g10 liners with a micarta handle held together with brass and stainless loveless bolts and a stainless wrist thong. Itís very comfortable.

    The blade is 15 cm long, the handle about 11, it comes in a deep carry kydex sheath with a leather belt loop, it weighs about 325 gm and with the sheath itís about half a kilo.

    It will handle everything from light chopping to food prep to skinning. Being O1 it will need oiling after use though. Comes with a polished edge and is sharp as.

    Nb these are not pretty knives and have a few blemishes, but they are tough.

    I'll have it.
    Full tang?
    Not fussed on the sheath though. How have you been grinding/filing/making the handles? I'll have to check it out but may want to reshape.

    Pro-tIp for selling knives to older people, put your measurements in inches.

    I'll be down auckland the weekend if that works, or post. Will PM.

    Everything should be in millimeters

    On that, why as hunters do we use pounds? Still baffles me. I suppose a 100lb pig sounds much bigger than 45kgs or 7 stone depending on who your trying to sell to

    Beaut knife though, wish I had the patients to make something like that.

    It's a visualisation thing. I had to convert it to work out it's a 6" blade.

    Most people can picture 2x4 lumber I don't know anyone that calls it ex-100x50, or 45x90.

    You know a guy's reasonably tall if he's 6 foot. You know midgets and children are 3 or 4 foot.

    You know a rugby field is 100 yards.

    You know a long rifle is 22" and a short one is 14...



    Time and a place for mms. I don't think this is it.

    I prefer thumb widths instead of inches. And instead of feet I prefer the Babylonian Cubit.

    All is true and we are just a bunch of mixed up generations with different rule sets all merged into one.

    Mm inches yards meters pounds kgs, I’m sure we are the only country that deals in all not just one? I don’t hear Americans saying caught this pig last night, was 45kgs but when he jumps on the scales he weighs himself in pounds? Yet we’re the opposite? My old man still uses stone for his weight.

    We’re a funny bunch here in Nz. I’m sure because of this most people actually have a decent understanding of the differences in distances and measurements automatically pre set to make the required calculations when called upon. In most part I do.

    But one thing I’m certain about is that a rugby field is 100 meters not 100 yards. Yet if I shoot a deer it’s typically within 100 yards or less. But I use rugby fields as a “measure of distance” when shooting.

    Obviously the best measurement unit for this in penis lengths.
    Easily as rational as inches even for farts as old as myself

    It's 4◊2. Only the yanks call a stick of wood a 2◊4.
