    Sorry, should add the Randy Jr. @HHH did the damascus. Weight is 240 grams. This one is pretty thin behind the edge, cuts great. Randy did a fantastic job with the cladding :) dude is a beast! This one has been finished for a while, just have been busy with a million things!

    I'm happy to see this one sell as quickly as it did. I hate when beautiful knives hang around for no reason (that lucky bulldogbacchus!!!)
    Congrats to the new owner of this beauty!
