The cck is a pigsticker. So if anyone needs to stick a pig, now's your chance.

Woh, I never thought I'd see you parting with these ones Ryan. I remember most of them pretty well, like that Beatty because of that rare marking it has and the scimitar's handle is a favorite style of mine. There are some goodies here for sure. Good luck with the sale.

I had a feeling that I had a picture of the Big Daddy so I went looking deep in the archives and found one I took years ago. It's shown leaning up against the back of the house standing on a porch railing. This thing is huge! :)

What were cleavers 1 and 6 used for? (original intent?) To me they look like they could be used to build your own log cabin and also butcher wild animals along the way... and by wild animals I mean a moose or elephant.

Looking at this and the pics could you do a more accurate set up of the pics? I just have no idea if I am looking at a handle of #2 or #4 (for instance). You did a ton of good work on the write up just to have it end in confusion.

I'm really surprised the Foster Bros is still hanging around. That would have been my pick from go if I had the room for it.
I tried to justify it, I just can't :(
I thought it was a deal at 160, 115 is an absolute steal.

Really a beautiful tool. I hope it goes to a proper home.

05-23-2012, 05:14 PM
^^ Heh heh, it isn't still hanging around. CCK might not be, either. :knight:

05-23-2012, 05:22 PM
Good for you, and glad it's you. That puppy deserves to be loved. :hatsoff:

Thanks! My friends are no longer scared by the 300 mm suji, so I needed to up my game a bit.

May ask my brother-in-law to make me a board to use these with, as I'm betting they could put a hurtin' on the BoardSmiths. I'll need some sort of tree trunk slice, prettied up a little.
