    I recently moved and found this one. I thought I sold all of these last year but I guess not.
    Click these 3 (one, two, three) threads for more info and previous discussion.

    It's brand new, in original box (shows wear). Unused. Beautiful knife. Handle hard to take good pics of. Many said that oiling it would make it even better.

    These are hrc 66, dps-189 steel I believe (don't quote me though).

    I am asking $220 shipped in CONusa

    Thank you :)

    if you want to take good pics of the handle do like this:

    set camera to spot measuring, then it only measures light in the very center (or your selected autofocus point), a small spot at least.
    then the camera will expose the pic from that light measurement. it will "correctly expose" only this part and its the part you actually do want exposed right.

    most cameras have spot/center weighed/matrix (whole frame averaged) metering options.

    and on phones you can simply click the screen and the camera will focus/measure that part only and expose thereafter, on my iphone 4 or so i can even do this and then adjust a slider to make it darker/lighter to "enhance" what i now want enhanced.

    flash kills all details. use good/much light instead.

    protip ;)

    no problem.

    sensors and monitors have limited dynamic range compared to our eyes so this is a good workaround.

    however this is only partly true, since our eyes constantly adjust F ratio/focal length/focus distance/dynamic range/shade depending on "the scene" at hand. and our vision is center weighed or spot weighed (we only see sharp in the 1-2% of the center, and our vision image is "exposed" only for this part). in this very spot where we have focus and good exposure with our eyes the dynamic range is actually quite low.
