    Hi guys;
    I have a few more used bushcraft/hunter knives that I'd like to sell. All have been used but never abused of course. All have been sharpened/reprofiled to my liking, mostly because of too thick stock before edge/too thick shoulder or because of a remaining v-edge despite convex grind. Never used a power tool!! They all come in a sheath! Those are not for the showcase! If you need more info or more pictures, just let me know!

    Turley's Soldier River (current wait list what, 1 year?), 3/16 O1, this one has the varied convex grind but had a small remaining v-edge on it. Therefore the "reprofiling" to zero convex edge, then stropped. The handle is one of the most comfortable I have ever held, however, the proximal end of the handles was quite "sharp" on both sides so I ground this of a bit. It's the perfect, sturdy all around bushcraft/camp knife, very sharp. Highlight is, it comes with a beautiful custom leather sheath from Mr. Jake Williams, who Turley recommends and he knows his knives!. More info on the knife:
    http://www.turleyknives.com/apps/blog/show/2544826-model-19-the-soldier-river-bushcraft-knife

    The knife new is about US$ 220, the sheath was US$ 60, so with shipping for the knife etc. about US$300.
    I am asking Can$ SOLD plus shipping, which seems to be 20-30 $, depending on where you guys reside in the US.

    G L Drew sturdy "hunter", his great 5160 steel. Reprofiled edge, "flattened" main grind (I used a diamond stone to even out the main grind). Comes with a scabbard. Here is the original sell thread from Nov. 2011:
    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/s...ipped-Hunter-((SOLD))?p=10237592#post10237592

    I payed US$ 145 for it. I am asking Can$ 100 including shipping!

    Last one. A sturdy, hence unique, Laconico bushcrafter, in 3/16 O1, it's usually 1/8 in 1095. I bought it unused from LightGuy here on BF. I have used it for bushcraft only and it has been sharpend. Comes in a leather scabbard.

    Here is the original thread with nice pictures:
    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/s...-3-16-quot-O1)?highlight=laconico+bushcrafter

    The "normal" version is US$ 185 + shipping to Canada, I don't know anymore how much I payed. It has been used and sharpened, so I think reasonable would be Can$ SOLD , shipping included.

    Unfortunately I might not be able to send the knife out before end of August. Funds can wait until then if the deal otherwise has been confirmed and I will hold the knife! Sorry for that confusion, I forgot I am about to travel coming Friday!

    As usual, the first to post "I'll take it", gets it! Seller takes no responsibilities in regards to local laws of buyer.
