Just for Dee, here's the other knife lazy me promised - the Toadsticker Shiv. 5 3/8 inch 1080 blade (full tang), carved and engraved shibuichi scales with copper pins, 9 3/4 inches overall length. I agonized between calling it the "Froggy Shiv" or Toadsticker, the meaner-sounding name won out.


Thanks for looking!

congrats on a gorgeous blade.

im glad i asked to see it.
it is indeed a very nice blade.

but, if i am pressed .. then i would say that i hold by my statement.
i prefer the other blade.
it wins out by a flipper. ;)

but as a separate piece .. i love the scales of this blade ..
and a wonderful choice in the material too.
