    I live in Northern California. I use mineral oil on the blades, but I rarely put anything on the handles, and have not had any noticeable shrinkage, beyond what sometimes comes from Nevada. I've sanded a few handles to bring out a high polish (2000 grit), and sometimes I apply tung oil after sanding, but most of my wood and horn handles are left as they arrive from HI. I've been collecting HI knives since 2011 and it's been so far, so good as far as handle shrinkage is concerned.

    Alrighty, this thing is as Awesome as you might gather from the pics. :thumbsup:

    Just got it busted out, but I would happily answer any ?s anyone might have while I am getting acquainted with it.

    Its amazing, really, with sweet balance and heft. The left scale is as beautiful as the right one (you can kinda see the beauty mark in the photos above).

    Dang! A wall hanger?

    Did you at least cut something?

    That's why I was forced to hang it up, I'm afraid. Too deadly.

    I was cutting down my enemies with such efficacy that my gravedigger couldn't keep up, and he is getting on in years.
