Yeah, I offered it to him first. He sayd he was looking for slimmer version. 💁‍♂️
Doesn't look chunky to me. I've seen thicker choil shots. Obviously, it's his perogative. I'm just saying, I don't think I would want it any thinner.

Slimmer version? They don't make a slimmer version.
Edit: I don’t want to send the wrong message. This is a beautiful knife and a great buy for anyone. I am just very specific about the knife I want to buy.

I don't think anybody thinks you are saying anything bad about the knife. Lots of people will get super specific over specs- not buy a knife because it's 1-2 mms short at the heel or 4 or 5 mms less in length.

Or, in my case, I’m not buying because this is like $700 over budget.

If I keep looking at beautiful pieces like this I’m going to be waaaaaaay over budget.

One of the best looking damascus, you can feel the texture with your fingers.

Seems I'm not allowed to post on this forum yet. Could someone help me post a WTB ad for a Tanaka R2 ironwood petty? If someone's selling one at a low price, I wouldn't mind picking it up so we get some laughs.
