    WTT 10" Sab Nogent for a Daily User

    Here it is, I have a great Sab Nogent that I just don't jive with. It's a great knife, and takes a nice edge, has that cool Sab feel and look, etc, but it's just not for me.
    I'm looking to trade it for a knife that I can use in my yard, cutting twigs, digging, cutting out roots, shaving small bits of wood, cutting twine, and bags...you get the idea.
    Keep in mind this knife is a limited stock item and the price is $100+. I'm honestly not dying to get rid of it, but I hate having it sit in a drawer!
    I'm looking for a necker, or Spyderco anything heavy duty. I'll also seriously consider a nice Boker.
    Let me know if anyone has anything interesting, and I'll happily take and post pictures tomorrow.
    Oh yeah, Simpsons and Shavemac brushes also might catch my interest
    Thanks guys!

    Here's that pic I promised.



    It looks like I really lucked out with this trade. A better knife than I could've imagined seems like it'll be coming my way. I'm pumped!

    It turns out our friend Mike Davis has been curious about Nogents, and felt like he could put something together for me that will more than do the trick! He's making a 6" necker out of 1084. I, in return am giving him the Sab and a player to be named later
    Needless to say, I can't friggin' wait! The design is even done ALREADY!

    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

    Sweet sounds like a good deal. Just wondering, what's the handle on the sab made out of?

    after seeing that pic, Lefty, i now understand why i've been having trouble with my nogent: the bolster on mine must be at least 2.5 times thicker than yours, front to back.

    The handle is said to be made of ebony, but it could be blackwood. It's actually a nice handle.
    Edipis-I took it to the grinder and did some modifications. I thinned the guard, took it up off the edge, rounded the edges on the guard itself AND cut it into the primary bevel angle. It's not perfect, but it was winter and my shop isn't heated! Haha

    hah, a grinder would certainly have done it! i'm thinking of doing the same thing, though a dremel is all i have to work with. i have been working on it with a DMT coarse, but i just don't have the patience for it.

    I have been putting off trying to deal with that silly ridge at the heel of my Nogent, but it's going to have to go sooner or later.
