I waited almost 5 years for this. And added in many addtional upgrades like the rare awesome micarta by UniqueMicarta (I bought it so Rod could use it) and an excellent Buybrownindustries Kydex sheath. The micarta really makes this one of a kind. Steel is CPM3V and has Rod's usual micro tanto tip . Kydex is just plain awesome. I just flew in to San Francisco, and would be flying out on first thing Thursday morning so I would like to close and ship out by Wednesday late morning/afternoon. As I can ship domestic, I'm asking for only $sold USPS shipping and paypal fee of 4.5% is included in the price. That's a steal for not having to wait 5 years and getting the special micarta and kydex all done up for you.
