For whatever reason I have some lack of interest for ebay related stuff. But there was some good stuff on the link that I will check out, thanks Barry.

Not a great one, but here it is.

As long as he doesn't try and get it shaving sharp
He might pull an EG




I see a lot of custom bark rivers mentioned in places, are these done for different vendors or can you actually contact them? the website is not too informative.

Nice Jeff, I would be worried about tip damage with such a steep curve to the point. I like the scales.

It might be a Highland, Adam. Here's my '02 Pre-Prod for comparison:

Especially with (what appears to be) a hollow grind.

Yep, that's it. Mine says "1st Production Run".

As for serving me well, it is the best working knife I own. Maybe not sharp enough to shave with, but plenty sharp enough for deer field dressing.

Nothing is wrong with your picture, it has to be on your end.

It's in your buffer at home, but not in your phone or work 'puter's memory... so you see the same thing I do.

I copy/pasted one URL direct into the address line, and can see your knife fine, now.

I use them HARD, too. Every knife I take to work has the tip broken off. I like the looks, but the Bark River is probably stronger.

I'm also considering a CRKT Razel.
