good one, as always. I like the simple carving. Not over-the-top. sort of a knife for a common person. you have some wrought with good pattern/grain to it. It stands out nicely.

hope you sell it for a million dollars... give or take a little.

I love it. It looks authentic, like you're not joking. It looks like a viking friction folder :rolleyes: not a reproduction or a gaudy piece of "art".
