    I had claimed a leek from the pif with the holster but I didn't realize someone had claimed it before me.

    @sabre cat my wife is the same way. Best knife she would take is an all stainless steel Boker Cinch in AUS-8. She was interested in a brightly colored Endura, then changed her mind after seeing the price of a new one. She does want a Mora Companion and I carry a Sarge Barlow with wood scales for her ;)

    Perfect. Thank you. I'm leaving it there only to make sure it reminds me for the next update to watch out for something in case Anthony wants something to even things out if the IWB holster is deemed too little.

    Thanks, I added it to the list above.

    No problem, I spoke with him by PM and he thought the holster would cover it.

    I wanted to add something else to the PIF. Let's call it a budget bundle.
    Schrader old timer 940tw.
    Buck 525 T.
    And 2 safety cutters.
    [​IMG]
    If there are any hunters looking at this, these safety cutters will open a whitetail or rabbit like they came with a zipper.

    The only thing you need to do is email me your shipping info to minirehak @ hotmail.com, wait a few days, and then open the package :)

    I really just want to get rid of these so they are all yours

    @bikerector , I have attempted to contact @thesteelpanther about item 25 but have not received a response. We may want to pull it from the list?

    That sounds like a good idea. I don't see him claiming anything, only offering the knife so it would simply take it off.

    I'll remove it and your part of PIF pending.

    I have another offering, requires no PIF.

    I have a schrade SCHF52M with a broken handle scale... the M no longer really applies (micarta). I'm going to paracord wrap it but send the scales along too in case the individual is interested in getting some new ones or crafting something and wants it for sizing.

    This is large chunk of 1095 with a thick grind and I'll admit, Schrade does a pretty decent job with 1095. 1/4" thick 7" blade but 1" is in the choil so it's more like a 6" blade with a lot of hand positions. I've used it a bunch as a froe cutting in notches for a bushcraft bench thing I've slowly been putting together over the last year as I find time and deadwood to recover from my backwoods. I received it for cheap used and stripped from another forum member when I started exploring bigger blades a while ago. I've moved on to bigger and better things so I don't use this at all. The sheath is equally well used.

    Stock info: https://www.knifecenter.com/item/SC...yester-sheath-with-ferro-rod-sharpening-stone

    I'll probably wrap in the orangy-yellow paracord in the pics but I also have a black/blue camo looking stuff I can use. Not sure I have black anymore. I'm not going to epoxy it because I don't have the right stuff and if I can remember how I did my monolithic hawk blank from Hunter, it works really well without the epoxy and I think the grip is a lot better with the fabric exposed. Blade could use a sharpen, I'll probably at least give it a touch up for the claimer so it's ready to abuse some more, and abused it needs to be. I honestly don't know what it would take to break this blade but I challenge the claimer to try.

    If you don't mind I would like to claim it. I was actually looking at other Schrade fixed blades to kinda dip my toes in the water. This seems a bit more practical than the other fixed blades I've had before.

    I can sure try to break it for you ;)
    Oh and I think the black and blue would look a bit cooler than orange

    I'm offended you don't like my orange :cool:, one of my faves for a handle color. I have a burnt orange paracord but I'm too selfish to offer that up to you all. The blue/black is pretty sweet, it's what's all over my ratweiler pics earlier in this thread.

    I'll get the black/blue out and wrap it up today.

    It's not that I dislike orange, BUT [​IMG]
    That wrap would match my lounge pants. And I was thinking if I was ever in the situation that I needed to use the knife in the middle of the night, I would match with my pants and I'd look stylish as frick.

    I actually tend to do a lot of yard work in PJ's and lounge pants. I might as well be comfortable when mowing the lawn, smashing up firewood, or just performing random shenanigans in the back yard. I try to avoid flip flops though, somehow slippers feel like they would protect me more.
