This is a fantastic idea. Maybe even micarta for "composite toe" slippers. Paracord wrapped kevlar or carbon fiber and micarta toes? slippers for the knife enthusiast who has slippery fingers.

I guess the real questions are what steel do I use and should it be stainless or carbon steel?
Stainless. Feet get sweaty in slippers. With kray-ex outsoles of course.

I say you should just keep it and remove it from the PIF. It's been up for awhile and no one seemed interested. Honestly you will probably get more use out if it than I will.
But you claimed it and put up an offering, I don't think that's too fair for you. I wasn't about to go and remove my offering. I can send you one. It's a cheap knife, I don't mind ordering one. Would you want the one I offered or a brand new one?

Seriously, don't worry about it. If you're using it, keep doing so. I was just curious to see how close in size it is to the Launch 1 I already have. I'm not hurting for knives to carry and use.

I haven't touched it since I put it up in this thread, Besides looking at it and flipping it. You claimed the knife so it's yours. Send me an email at minirehak at hotmail.com so I can get one out to you and send some size comparison shots

I'd like to claim a couple of these if I can. First the Ruike P865, because that's a brand I've never seen and very close to a sheepsfoot blade. For this I'll offer a Case Russlock in Bone Stag, still in the box. CLAIMED!

Second I'd like the Utica Catskill for which I'll offer a new Puma IP. CLAIMED!

I initially offered a mint Remington R-2 Bird Hunters slip joint, but the Puma is a higher value knife and rare in the USA. If someone wants the Remington, just PM me.

I can have pictures up tomorrow if that's okay with everyone.

Works for me. PM me your shipping information. Will try to get it out tomorrow. Ruike is making some incredible knives for the money. You will be surprised.

I received the HK auto from dkb45 dkb45 yesterday and managed to get it back together.

I understand why he had such difficulty. Usually you can just remove the stop pin and over rotate the blade a bit to relieve the spring tension and get everything lined up. Not the case with this one.

I had to insert the blade over the spring and allow enough space to get a tool between the handle and the blade, without allowing the spring anchor to pop out of it's index slot... then hold that whole assembly in place while replacing the lock button assembly and stop pin. Ugh. I got it done though.

I'm going to carry the knife for a week, just to make sure there aren't any further issues and then it'll be up for grabs.

If you intend to claim the knife please clear your proposed offering with dkb45 dkb45 . This a wonderful, Benchmade manufactured auto. Thanks for putting it up and allowing me to help it along.

If the entourage becomes available again, I would still like to claim it! Haven't owned a benchmade OR an auto, so seems like a good pick
