    Nice knife! There are some good threads on refinishing a knife like that.

    I have two somewhere in California on with a 16in blade and one with a 14in blade and they are both just as nimble as can be.

    Reviving this thread and thank you Son for the history on this maker.

    I was as a party yesterday and some friends said "hey Mike we got you something it's in the car" wow - was I treated to a great surprise -



    14.5" blade, thin guard and tapered tang. It's a monster - what a great gift.

    Here it is next to my 270 Kono HD for comparison.


    I'm looking forward to bringing this bad boy back from the brink. Nasty chip in the edge, but what's left of the sticker is still on the handle. It's going to look good in ironwood.
