    Quality & bargain price. Knives.

    Simply too many knives...

    Top: Custom Brown (Green River style) 5", 12c27 steel. My own micro convex edge. Razor sharp. Absolute quality. Comes with an extra custom sheath as well.

    I paid a fortune for it though a charity auction to get a friend (who has a disability) down south hunting. Have used it on Tahr and deer.

    $130 delivered

    Bottom: This a Thipa, made by a member on here. I bought it to support him and to try his knives out. Most impressed with it! O2 steel. Will deal to a deer without touching the edge. I've put a little scollop into the handle where my thump rests. Have also added a micro convex edge. Its damn sharp. Comes with a nice tight vegetable tanned leather sheath.

    $85 delivered

    Water stones and strop. 1000 stone, then 4000 stone then strop with cbn 4 micron, then cbn 8 micron. Start at about 45 degrees and work down to about 30%.
    Sounds technical, but isn't hard. I will post a pic of one of the edges.

    I had one of allan knives for 15 years that I used most days and the bloody kids misplaced it!
    if I can't find it I might have to go for a visit and raid his cuboard.
    great knives!

    I havn't caught up with him for a couple of years so will make an effort.
    I know al from his ruatiti days back when he was a fencer shearer and where he first started experimenting with his knives and stone.
    a clever man!
