One of Gary's Knives that I carried in Afghanistan. It came with a leather sheath, and I made the Kydex one for it to mount to my kit.

That is a false edge on the top clip. $130

If I sent you scale material (stabilized maple, IIRC) what would that knife cost?

well with your 20% off it would be $96 and about $7 in shipping = $ 103 total.

That is for an 0-1 Carbon TS blade, stainless would be $25-35 more depending on the steel. I recommend the 0=1 it is an aggressive cutter and sharpens easly and with a little care will look good for years.

I can also bead blast it at no cost if you want, this is a stock removed knife so it makes no difference in the cost. It helps with rust resistance, in that it holds oil better.
