Nick, I will try to help you with this group. I am new to these knife groups but not new to carbon steel knives.

That sounds great. Why don't you send me the picture and I'll get it right up. Scott contacted me and he would like to see me get an ID picture up as soon as possible.


I can see why a group with no picture would not be very presentable.


If you need any of my info, contact me again.

Nick, I have a large custom  15" knife with full patina. It has desert iron wood handles. I can send you a picture if you would like me to....Rob

Could be, but I plan on taking a picture of a Stockman that I have that has the most patina on it. It's only been a carry for about 4 months, but used a lot when I eat, so maybe it'll do the group justice.


Either that, or take a picture of the "CV" stamp on one of my case knives. I only have one knife that's made with 1095, but its more tactical than I want to showcase. 


If you have any ideas for a group picture, please let me know. I'm pretty limited, but nevertheless, I have become quite the fan of carbon steels as of late.
