Just because it's pretty.

I bought another switchblade, and another is in the mail.

I just like this little guy. It has a very nice feature, a liner lock. The edge is well formed, a tad rough, but this one might be more for "play."

I'll get to know it a bit, and write a full showcase soon.

I like the way you're jumping into pushbuttons with both feet, Chico!

Looks similar to my new 9 inch lever lock that I got last week.

I was thinking the same thing. I have some Barges to do, but the stones are pretty much the same, and now soaking. I could do the shaping when their ink is drying.

I just started shaping the little Hunter. A very thin but well shaped bevel.

I wasn't going to polish the little Hunter until RustyIron suggested it. Then I remembered it was my knife...

Yikes, the little lady got sharper than I first imagined! The tip is like a needle!

I'm glad I took the time.
