    @RobbieB is correct. A X on the spine is used to mark seconds and/or old stock that was sold at a very substantial discount. The sales post is on my Instagram along with prices.

    @Kal-El do you plan to list any smaller blades?

    I’ll keep an eye out. Been looking for a 3/32 3 to 3-1/2 blade with a nice wood handle. :thumbsup:

    I found my EDC knife. Does anyone have a Gaucho with wood handle they’re looking to re-home soon? I can offer a DIW Kephart or DIW Gambler with ISP sheath as a trade or cash once either of those sell.

    @TPVT did you buy the DIW Gaucho with the lime pinstripes DLT has? I was looking at that one until David posted his.

    @Random Dan looks like you kept the asp in great condition. If I didn’t already have a bloodwood HM I’d be all over that bro. GLWS.

    They're both great piees but didn't end up being users so I think it's time to pass them along before I become too much of a fiddleback collector. I've heard it can get expensive.

    That said if they don't sell I will take it as a sign from the gods and happily keep them.

    @Random Dan Trying to resist that Bloodwood handyman. Someone will snatch it soon and save me from buying it. I know what you mean about letting it go if it is not a user knife.

    Thankfully someone took the bloodwood HM before I could but I would be lying if I didn’t say I was a little disappointed.

    @Mr. Tettnanger did you ever locate a Pro Camp Knife? I have a NIB in Natural Micarta looking for a home.

    Yes Sir! I just received it on Friday!

    i couldn't be happier! I've bought and sold a 1/2 dozen or over the years. It feels good having one back in the mix!

    hey @byrd687 ... commenting on your post in the flea market thread about a 3V camp knife with "fancy scales". if you find a mid-tech version, you could put some scales on it yourself. limitless possibilities! :rolleyes:;)

    just a thought

    I thought all production Camp Knives were CPM 3V while all other production models were CPM S35VN.
