Beautiful knife Anthony!
Maybe if someone gave Anthony a stack of 900 $1 bills, they could trick him into thinking it was two stacks with that mirror polish :)
Good luck with the sale

Too funny! I was waiting for someone to make a joke about my $1 bill used in an auction for an $1800 knife :)

Thank Dog! Been on Bill's waiting list for a little over a year know, and it was temping to go for the instant gratification.

Ed, did you snag that up?

04-19-2013, 10:20 PM
Never mind, I see you just added it to your gallery. Congrats on the score.

I like that this pic looks like it could have been taken on your board, lol.

04-19-2013, 10:20 PM
I did :biggrin:. I was shocked that it was for sale. I was thinking of going on the waiting list and this shortened it considerably!

04-19-2013, 11:08 PM
Congratulations Ed, and thank you. I was getting weak.
