WTS, Boker Licensed Copy of Coye--Members Only

Yes, members only. I want to know where this knife is going.

This is a Boker licensed copy of a Coye fixed blade. Boker calls this knife "The Ridgeback." 250 bucks, firm.

I have made small modifications to the knife to make it more like the original. For example, I added a choil.

I have not registered the knife with Boker, the slip is in the box for the new owner.

It is 440C stainless steel, and as you might have noticed, it's sharp. The owner will of course receive "life sharp."

Never used to cut anything except some of my fingerprints.

Better picture.

I think this one is clearer.

Well, if you added up the time and the materials you'd find out that you're buying the "polish" and you're getting the knife for free.

My wife is doing landscaping, and Jen always needs donations for the ministry. I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone.

If I was in a position to pull the trigger the check would already be in the mail!

Believe it or not, the hardest part of the project was getting the choil in the exact spot that Coye placed his. I used a CRKT diamond rod, and because of the exact scale, I think he did, too.

What is the purpose of a choil?

It makes it easier to get a polishing stone perfectly flat on the bevel.

There is also something called a "finger choil." It's a dull, rounded curve the size of a man's finger on the blade, allowing a hunter to 'choke up' on the knife and make more precise cuts. Technically, the Ridgeback has a finger choil, too.

The knife is still for sale. I'll bargain a little, I was going to split the money with my wife's dentist and the Ministry, no kidding.

I found out that my wife has already gotten the first of two crowns installed, and because I used to work there, their credit manager took a down payment. No one is talking about the second crown, we're just hoping the cracked tooth doesn't shatter.

Probably the same thing you guys are going through. For some reason, we had a real spike in bills. We're not going bankrupt, we're just broke.
