    Hey everyone. I have a FK1 up for sale in D3V.

    Black buffed micarta. I purchased the knife second hand in an unsharpened condition. I have also kept it this way. Has a small blemish on shoulder of one side of scales, I suspect from clicking into the sheath.

    Spanner in the works- I imported the knife to New Zealand when I purchased it, so it's on this side of the world, as such I would prefer to sell as close to NZ as possible as shipping to US/Canada is $45usd. If no bites from this corner of the globe I will consider selling further afield.

    Looking for $370usd (let me know if this is unreasonable, is a lot less than what I purchased it for) which includes shipping and PayPal fees. Since international shipping will be likely, please be aware of your countries import regulations and I am not liable for import fees and taxes.

    Any questions flick me a PM or ask here.

    Anyone want to trade their FK2 with unbuffed burlap, for my DEK1 in unbuffed burlap?

    K18 blem, $1,000 (extras of these swords will sell for $1,500 here this summer, so this is a $500 discount)

    The sword had a flaw on it that was small enough it slipped through until I inspected it. I think I remember when this flaw happened, a cutter broke during trim out and embedded some carbide that tore chunk out when it was pulled out.

    It has already been through all of the finishing and sharpening steps so I figured I would sell it.

    Everything we ship has flaws in it. When I get to the point I no longer see the flaws in my work, that just means my eyes are too old for this. So my rule of thumb has always been if it were something I purchased would I be disappointed in it and this little divot crosses that line. Normally this would go in the creek bed, but these swords are A: spectacular and special, and B: of very limited production and C: too big to easily bury. With this in mind I thought maybe someone who plans to beat the piss out of their sword might have a use for this.

    Be aware it has a flaw and it is lightly used.

    The sale comes with some strings attached. You have to be buying it to use it not to flip it, and if you ever do sell it you have to disclose that it was purchased as a blim. <--- on your honor. With these contingencies in mind I have to ask the sale be limited to people who have bought knives from us before and are at least somewhat regulars around here so that I know you.

    Awwww missed it. Congrats!

    On a side note:
    1. Cheaper
    2. Have to use it
    3. Not allowed to sell it

    This is the wife-proof-purchase! I'd love to see this as an option on the next pre-order

    woa...thats one hell of a deal on that K18.
    Congrats to the winner.
    As a side note, I would even consider let the winner use it for a week then take it a course the premium is not for a flip, it is a token of appreciation for a full week of hardwork in testing the knife for any unforeseen weakness ;):p:p

    There might still be a 90* spine FK2 Hard/Thin for sale directly from CPK - check the last sale thread. I ended up going with a DEK1 instead of one of those, so it might be your lucky day!
