If I hadn't just picked up a 10sun carter. I would have taken this... The other 4 knives in the last week don't help my "budget" either. That's a great deal.

This is the reason. The knife was more like 226-27 when I received it from Carter. After thinning the knife the tip became very pointy/thin/fragile. So I reshaped it a little to make it more robust. Now it's 221-222 ish.

I saw it within 30 seconds just read the whole other thread about the work he did on it before commenting. But it is getter insainly fast around here with some of these sales.

Tinh, I lied about the size. It's normal sized. Its a 270 ish. I think I meant to say 10 inch.

Over a year ago, I would see them up for sale all the time without much interest...now they go like hotcakes. That's cyclicality for ya.
