I bought this because I’ve been curious about the pattern for awhile. It is a great size edc fixed blade but I just am not using it enough. It is 4.37” blade and beautifully matched Ironwood scales. Great knife, but I’m more into slip joints. I paid $195 for this one and have done only light cutting. You can try it out for your first time, or buy a user so your custom Carter can stay in the safe! Paypal G&S $175 OBO shipped.
