I purchased this knife a month ago from aframes and it has never been used. I recently purchased a Radar and Burke and cannot justify keeping this as well. This is a gorgeous knife and the geometry on it is excellent. I really wanted to use this knife, but knew I might end up selling it and did not want to take a hit selling a "used" knife. So I am offering it up for someone else to enjoy. The handle is burn chestnut and it is very "grippy." Beautiful knife and yours for a slight discount! Comes with saya and all original box and packaging. It is unavailable on aframes priced at $448. Asking $420 shipped conus.
