    Hey BCUSA,

    Got another batch from the depths of my safe looking to find new homes. Below each knife will feature one or two photos, but a full album of all the photos can be found at this address: http://imgur.com/a/tgFGj0e

    All prices listed are net to me. Offers are welcome, as well as trades, but I'm pretty picky and lean toward premium and stainless steels. But it never hurts to ask if you have something you think I might like.

    Shipping and insurance are on me. If sending via G&S, please add 3%. Will ship next business day via USPS priority insured.

    If you have any questions, please let me know!

    Fiddleback Forge Bushcrafter Jr. : $250
    New as far as I know or can tell. Not sure on the steel. 1/8" A2. Some of the coolest scales I've seen with pale yellow liners. Sheath included.

    Bark River Knives Gunny Hunter : $225
    New. 5/32 3v. Tigerstripe micarta with carbon fiber bolsters. Sheath included.

    S35vn. 1/8". Seared Osage Orange Scales with moonglow liners. Gently used. No sheath on this one.

    She's been retasked for one of my more carried mountaineers and outfitted with a tek lok.

    I used to own the burlap Explorer and it was the most comfortable AS I have ever held. Beautiful knife too, with that copper hardware.

    I believe I'll be posting another AS hiker later today at some point with a matching firesteel. Snakewood with ivory bolster.

    Couple of price drops and the AAF Woodsman withdrawn for the meantime. Can't go any lower on that, and it is just too pretty. I will leave the tradesman up for a few more days, but that one will be withdrawn too at that point. Just too pretty. :)

    Dude...I was just messaging Cody today about a convex Tradesman in S35VN for my wife to use as a kitchen knife. Was hoping for synthetic scales, but damn yours checks off a lot of boxes. How thick is the handle? Was hoping for around a 3/5 for my wife.

    Received my awesome blade today. Had a miscommunication but it was more with my tired brain than the seller.

    It’s 4/5 I believe and I have small/med hands. Feels great. Crazy sharp! Already ordered a new sheath for it. Can’t wait to put some miles on it!

    Great knife for that purpose, imo. Super slicey. I love a 1/8 convex or flat for food prep. 3/32 would be amazing, but I don't know if they've ever been made in that stock and a stainless. I doubt it.

    As for the handle, it's a triple swell (My favorite shape). So it's a bit harder for me to judge than a Coke bottle which I have a lot more experience with. But she's not very thick feeling in the hand at all. I'd say a 3 or maybe a 4. It's not particularly thin or fat. Let's call it a 3.5? Haha.

    Tomorrow,I can post shots from a different angle so you can see the contour.

    I've since requested all my customs on order be done in a triple swell. I don't "not like" the coke bottle, but the triple swell is much more comfortable in my hand and I feel like it gives me a lot more control over the blade than a Coke bottle shape.

    I put two orders in with Cody for semi customs when he had them open, and I already own two others. That's the only reason this one is even listed. I planned to leave it up through the weekend and then withdraw it if there wasn't any other action on it, but no rush. Shoot me a msg if you decide one way or the other.

    Thanks brother. Definitely interested, but timing kind of sucks. I spent way too much the past week or so. Let me think on it.
