Also, I was so surprised that the last knife is the really cool one, I thought it would be the middle one! I am just so grateful to you for all of this information!
Congrats on the news! Thank you John McCain, you are awesome !!
That SOG is a heck of knife. Pretty much indestructible. Best of luck wit the sales! I may need to give that SOG some thought!
I'll give it some thought. Without the original box, sheath and papers, as well as the spotting on the blade, that does pull the value down some. I will let you know - thanks!
