    Gentlemen:

    For your consideration is this Star Point Hunter in CPM-154/Micarta. This new design has excellent hand ergonomics with its contoured handle. The star bolsters have red liners as does the highly tapered tang. Dressy enough to wear formal with its 8-10 oz RH horizontal sheath. I hope you like it! The first "I'll take it," PM, or email gets it. $525 delivered CONUS. Paypal preferred to [email protected]. Thanks for viewing my work and your comments are welcome.

    V/R,

    TK


    3/16" CPM 154
    HT to Rc 60-61
    4" Hollow ground blade
    8 3/4" OAL
    Mirror finish
    Star point bolsters
    Stainless furniture
    Black linen micarta scales
    Tapered tang with red liners
    8-10 oz RH horizontal leather sheath

    Thanks for commenting Dan - not too many comments on this one.....I'll bet it's because of the price point. Some BF members need to understand that it takes the labor of three $150 guardless knives to make one of these - hence the price.

    TK I always enjoy seeing your work, and in my professional opinion this knife is under priced for the time and skill required to make a knife of that caliber.

    I've noticed a lot of folks don't take the time to comment these days , you though usually do get them . Beautiful piece TK and I'm sure that star point bolster is time consuming . A question though , in the pics it looks like the lanyard tube is narrower/shorter than the handle material . On purpose or just photo ?

    Just the photo Jack - the ends are flared so they can hide the backside of the lanyard tube.

    I understand the work it takes to produce one as fine as this. I agree, its a steal of a deal.

    I agree, a reasonable price for this knife considering the time required to create a knife of this complexity, especially to this degree of fit & finish.

    Kevin: I agree, and it looks like it isn't selling on BF. I'm raising the price to $525 delivered because it's worth more than that, and will sell it off my website. The photograph by Coop cost me $170 alone. My offerings ALWAYS sell off my website. ;)
