    This photo doesn't do the SOG Agency (second from top) justice, but it has a lustrous blued finish that I often just stare at. I bought the SOG Super Bowie (top) thinking it had the same beautiful finish (both are described as titanium-nitride), but it wasn't nearly as purty.

    Now the knife below will not be faithful, she won't work and needs to be pampered constantly. But she has a certain tawdry beauty, or attraction. Still she's not a knife you'd want to take home to your bugout bag.

    Finally, here's one that has its own beauty. It's the Ka-Bar my dad carried during the War. Every place he went, he enscribed it on the back side of his sheath! You can imagine how much it's worth to our family!

    Hehe, thanks; I had it delivered to my office, so I had to take it into the restroom in order to take photos of it (and there was no way I was waiting until I got home :p)

    The paracord combination on the knife is olive drab on top and black underneath. The limited run of patina finished blades had various combinations; there were 33 made, and the combinations were apparently:
    - 6x Black on top / Olive Drab underneath
    - 6x Olive Drab on top / Black underneath (the one I got)
    - 6x Foliage on top / Olive Drab underneath
    - 6x Foliage on top / Black underneath
    - 6x Olive Drab on top / Coyote underneath
    - 3x Foliage on top / Coyote underneath

    I'm fairly certain the cord is 550, but I'm not going to strip it to find out (I can't find anywhere where the type is actually stated).
    The tanto version is discontinued (as of now), but I have high hopes for seeing some badass new stuff from the Bawidamann bros at Blade Show this year. :D

    I like the grind on this one so much that I'm posting this before it's finished. Differentially hardened .200" 1084.

    :thumbup: Sweet blades, brother; and where can one acquire such exquisite pieces of steel? And I appreciate Musashi in the background.

    I like vintage Al Mar knives, and this is -to me- the prettiest fixed blade in my collection.

    I'll make sure and post a picture of it in person when it arrives, along with the matching folding skinner I ordered.

    That is definitely the coolest thing I've seen. A treasure for sure.
