I just purchased this knife from Vertigo, it is a great knife, but something else just landed in my lap and this one is no longer needed. I used it exclusively for about 3 weeks and enjoyed it. It took me about a week of solid use to get a good patina, if requested I can remove it.

Asking $175.00 CONUS only.

Blade, thinned and re-profile by Jon Broida. I sharpened about 4 times just to play with it and it currently has a very nice edge.

Handle was done by Adam Marr in Redwood burl:

Damn I miss that thing. Grats to the new owner. If I'd been home 3 hours ago, I might have bought it back.

Only half a day too late! Good thing too...I can't put any more money into my knives for a while.
I think I'm going to rehandle my Dragon with ironwood. Jack, if given the opportunity again, would you rehandle?

Yeah, definitely. But I'm a "Rehandle the World" kinda guy, lol.
