    Man that is a work of art. I don't think I could use something that pretty.

    If I get the sheath too, is there a ferro rod loop?

    @Spirit-Wolf - hey mate!
    A firesteel loop can be added for a small fee without any issue; But if you buy the whole kit (knife+sheath+fs loop) will get this option free of charge ;)

    What is the hardness, and how well does it hold an edge? (How's it compare say to regular 01 tool steel? Or s30v ?)
    F.Y.I. almost sold; depending on answers.

    @Spirit-Wolf
    1. HRC - 59-60
    2. The tungsten-vanadium O1 is the best variation (there are 7 types if i am not wrong which has similar composition less the tungsten-vanadium); onto Jay Fisher's website you can find more info about this steel and it's properties. Jay is an enciclopedy :)
    3. For the edge retention please have a look onto my personal forums in here and see customer testimonials; without offering you my oppinion and only judging by what customers stated on public forums i would say that the HT is flawless thanks God.

    All the best mate, God bless you,
    Bogdan

    I just found an old testimonial on a design that wears Auroch's blade (grind, geometry, steel, HT - identical but better as i improved here and there over the last 2 years since the post was written) ;):

    http://www.buzzardbushcraft.co.uk/2015/05/woodspirit-knife-by-bushcraft-kit.html

    On the 'comments' of that post we have a fellow on forums that has 2 of my knives - hope he will see the thread :D

    All the best,God bless,
    Bogdan

    Please pm me your paypal info and I'll send money. If my math is correct: $200 for the whole thing + ferro rod loop. Right hand sheath please.
