I remember you saying this to me at Blade like 4 or 5 years ago . . . longer? I knew right then you had good taste! I believe you made at least one dagger several years ago which was an even closer version to one of Billy's inlaid integrals which you picture above. I coveted it in a big way. But I will be more than happy to "settle" on your new boot dagger once I get my hands on one. I have been fortunate enough to own a shiv, a couple of potato knives (best value knife I ever bought - one is used in my kitchen on a daily basis) and soon, hopefully, a dagger . . . not to mention the regular field knives and EDCs , , , and a special DEK1 sometime next year. It's been a fun ride, and I'm looking forward to what comes next.
