    I just finished up this Ankou. It was ground from 0.200" thick 80crv2, with textured flats. It has a hollow grid with a satin finish. The handle is Coyote Brown G10 over Black G10 Liners with Carbon Fiber Pins and Lanyard tube. It has an exposed pommel. The blade is 6 1/4" long with a thickness of 0.020 behind the edge. The handle is just a little lighter in color than the photos show, this is a difficult knife to photograph. The second photo properly represents the handle color.

    Thank you very much!
    This one is available, yes.

    So, the Ankou sells for $395 with an exposed pommel, Carbon fiber hardware, G10, thin black liners, etc. all the goodies. However this one has a satin finish on it which adds $50 to the cost. So it would be $445. If you would rather not pay for the satin finish, I am taking custom orders and could do one without it.

    Thanks you. The handle shape is exactly the same as a drifter, but with the addition of the extended "guard" section in the front, and the exposed pommel. The blade however, is quite a bit different.

    Pretty sure some of my 50% deposits were more than this entire knife haha dont know what you mean this knife is a lot of blade for the money! The Drifter handle draws me in like a tractor beam of the death star!

    As far as a base price goes. But, this does include a lot at that price like the exposed pommel, carbon hardware, etc.

    I got a little better photo of the actual handle color. For some reason my camera has a hard time with that shade.

    Thanks Thom. I've added Carbon Fiber Lanyard tubes to the options for hardware :) I think it was long overdue.

    Let me know if you would like me to add it to the order of black knives. I'm waiting on my steel order steel so there is time still with the knife orders.

    Oh Hell Yea ! That's just straight up sexy. I think this pattern may best the Drifter. I still want a Drifter but gosh darn this is sweet!! I refrained from swearing but if I was in your forge a would be dropping f bombs all over the place.

    That's hard to believe. I wish somebody would buy it before I get drunk and do something stupid.

    That's a real beauty. Would you mind providing more details?

    I'm not saying I can afford it, but inquiring minds...

    It'll just add another dimension to the dreaming.
