Alright guys, I've had my fun with this one. I'm going to give in and put this badboy up for sale:
There's a small chip (very small), but I didn't want to take any more metal off than necessary. It's Pre-Forgecraft, likely the exact knife Forgecraft used as their "prototype/inspiration". It is from before Washington Forge purchased the company, and is OLD!!!
Because of the cool history and the fact that I'm not urgent to get rid of it, this one is $85 with shipping included.
One little request, however. I want this one to be kept original, if possible. It would be a shame to pretty it up too much.
You mean the chip @3" from the heel? I really don't understand why you didn't remove it. Is it that deep you're affraid to loose a lot of material?
That's the one. The angle in the pic makes it look much worse than it really is. I hose not to remove any more metal, because it's minor and will sharpen out in a couple sessions...and I was sick of grinding blades that day, I guess.
Your killing me...
