    I might be the only one with this point of view, but I think it would have been nicer if the auction was restricted to private persons only. The auction might end at a higher bid, but I think it's a bid sad if it ends up in shop where they try to re-sell it at a higher price.

    Well, might just be grumpy me that can't afford to enter the auction :angel2:

    Thanks. Yea I won't stop anyone from bidding, bet (know) there are other craftsmen and retailers that also buy for themselves.

    I completely missed this, but Happy Belated Birthday! And it's a gorgeous knife. When I saw that it was "at 8000", I was disappointed that it was already waaaay out of my reach (because I didn't know I'd missed it completely, at the time). Then I went to look at it, and I thought, Wow, yeah that may be worth $8000 (because I didn't know you were quoting the price in sek, at the time). Now, I think the buyer got a stunning bargain.

    Thecaptain, I felt bad about outbidding Win as well. Valgard, He is keeping it for a week or so to polish the handle some more. I am in no rush as I'm in Afghanistan for work until June. Once I get home this summer I can post up some pictures if you would like.
