    Yeah, now I'm another one of those folks going "why didn't I get in on the pre-order, even though I have no practical use for a sword like this"...

    I had absolutely zero need for this magnificent beauty. So I ordered two.

    I could barely fit one of those in my apartment and I'd have absolutely no practical reason or use for it....and I so want one

    Unfortunately, the tree of knife didn’t make it and became firewood quite some time ago. The good news is that there are many good candidates for the new tree of knife.

    I swing it around in home my office daily, and my wife who already thinks I’m nuts is even more convinced of that fact now.

    Nathan, I hope that you did one K18 with BadMoFo and then kept it for yourself. If you didn't, why the heck not? 2 brownie points deduction for such omission and no Valentine's Day card for you this year!

    Thanks for the pics. That’s a damn fine looking short sword. The pommel came out so good. The OD terotuf looks really good too.

    Even now, I’m surprised and happy that this is an actual thing that’s happening. Nathan offered us a friggin sword and the CPK fam stepped up and committed to a bunch of pre-orders to make sure this could happen. :cool:

    Just for fun, if you find the time, it would be cool to see the K18 in some pics with other CPKs and some non-CPK big blades.
